The scene where Bond fights a big snake in Moonraker was one of the scenes. Jeff Bridges AKA "The Dude" grew up there due to his father had a popular TV show filmed there as well. I have not been there in years, other than stopping there for work. What, no Wild Waters photos? ;)

I went to Silver Springs many years ago. Not much has really changed. :)

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

In all seriousness is it worth the $$ in a kitchy "lets do this even though we know it sucks" kind of way? Are there any redeeming qualities?

Its not a bad park, its just a half day attraction. I think it is more for locals than anything. They always have concerts going and I think that is a big pull for them right now. I loved the glass bottom boats when I was little and I still do today. It does have a few bad areas but it has personality and history.

I liked the park. :?r

Is it just me, or does the bear sign primarily exist to refute complaints:
    "The bear isn't lonely, it's antisocial"
    "It isn't losing it's marbles in captivity, it's expecting a delicious meal any minute now!"
    "We aren't ignoring grooming the bear, it's a natural, seasonal process found in nature"
    "This bear may not look like much, but it's the subject of a famous Disney character! Well, a Disney character anyways. For reals!"
    "The bear habitat looks sketchy, but it really lives in a condo! Just as nice as yours! So shut up about it!"

Erik,

Thanks for saving The Bebes $65 plus travel costs. I don't think I've ever wanted to NOT go somewhere so bad.

And Robb pumps up this "World of Beers" place so much!!!!!!!

You know, the whole "world of bears/beer" joke occurred to me, but I couldn't quite make it work. Way to pull it off!

SyFy is missing a great opportunity here.

There needs to be a giant-croc or mutant-snake movie shot here now. I'm sure they can bang something together in a week and have it ready for broadcast. Or if they wanted to be different, how about "Mega-Algae v. Fungaroid"?
