Tagadas: For some inexplicable reason, they are SUPER popular in South America. I hate those rides, it doesn't make sense why one would spend money to end up with a stranger sitting on your lap. Or does it?

I guess that would depend on the stranger.

That Wild Mouse road is the sort of thing from my nightmares, I would never take it as I would be throwing up the entire drive!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This picture looks so much like driving I-15 to Vegas.

Your trip reports are always very good just like your Europe trip reports.

USA is blessed with 2 of the most amazing roads I've ever seen: I-15 to Vegas and Pacific Coast Highway. Those two, along with the route from Chile to Argentina are the holy trinity of amazing roads in the world.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Thanks for the pics/reports from these parks that we don't usually hear much about. I'm looking forward to the next set!

Neverland - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Buenos Aires 049.jpg
I decided to fly from Cordoba to Buenos Aires, since the ticket price was so cheap (around US$100). Buenos Aires is one of the most beautiful cities I've visited, and I try to go there at least once a year.

Buenos Aires 191.jpg
The architecture in Buenos Aires is amazing, the streets are large, people are very polite and helpful, the transportation system works perfectly and it's a very safe place to visit. It reminds me a lot of NYC (besides the polite people :-) )

Neverland is a small indoor park inside Shopping Abasto. In South America is very common to see those small arcade/parks inside malls. Most of them, though, don't have rides for teens/adults, just some kiddie ones.

Neverland is bigger than those small parks, and it occupies a large area of Shopping Abasto.

On the first floor there's a huge arcade area with some coin operated rides.



On the third floor there's a very, very cute ferris wheel


And on the second floor you can find some bigger rides like this pirate ship

More kiddie rides

The rides reminded of Luna Park, at Coney Island


Oh, of course, there's a credit there!

A very cute zamperla powered coaster


It's one of the best themings I've ever seen on a powered coaster

A bad A$$ shark

I'm usually ashamed of credit whoring like that, but this one was really worthy!
