I just thought I'd give a taste of my home park. I have to admit that I saw a heck of a lot of improvements around the park since my last visit, and a lot of the complaints I was going to make here can't be made anymore! It's good to see the park actually doing something for once.
Oh well. Enjoy, and try to ignore my not-so-amazing camera skills.
And to conclude my shoddy report: A shoddy photo of the acid trip log flume.
OMG. This looks disgusting. Is that a hole cut out of the sign?
The mini golf course is just sad. That water looks horrible
A quick shot of the park's weird-ass mascots.
We left the kiddy area to watch the "Bird Show".
This was it.
A guy in a bird suit.
Oh. My. God.
"Hello, I'm the dragon ride's theming!"
Speaking of theming, I heard this conversation between a cute kid on the ride and the ride op (about the mannequins inside the ride)
Kid: "They're not real people!!"
Ride Op: "They are too. They're just well trained!"
Kid: "They're not! Why aren't they breathing?"
Ride Op: "They're VERY well trained."
Kid: "They're just dolls."
Ride Op: "Very well trained dolls!" *dispatches ride*
Yeah, the kiddie area is really just a bunch of fairground rides surrounded by a dragon coaster.
It gets really hot in here. Some shade would be nice.
No, this ride is not cleverly themed around a shabby, fading plastic dragon. That really IS a shoddy, fading plastic dragon!!
I wonder who sponsors the kiddie area in this park?
Another corkscrew shot!
The rollercoaster!! OMG! Let me sum it up.. It goes up the lift hill, down a drop, through a vertical loop, a banked turn and then a corkscrew over the midway.
Does this sound familiar to any Sandusky regulars or is it just me?
The power surge... 40 steps to go!!
I wish I was a better cameraman because I really wanted to share some photos of the interior. It is freaking TERRIBLE. It's dirty, most of the models are coming apart. It looks like a piss-poor imitation of Splash Mountain if it was designed and maintained by people with no hands. I was actually embarrassed to be in there.
However in the photo it just looks like I'm on acid.
OH CRAP I'M GONNA GO THROUGH THIS WATERFALL. The effect would be way better if you didn't see the log in front of you go through first :/
Through some pretty trees...
Speaking of the log flume, it goes right underneath the Goldrusher here.
The park is really pretty here, around the entrance to the log flume.
This boarded up shop looks horrible! The park needs to do something about this!! ( )
The coolest part is walking up the ride and seeing it fly right past you.
This nicely themed ride! I would have taken some pictures inside, but it's against the park's rules and I'm just such a good citizen. (Actually I just got caught trying to take my camera on)
This nicely themed area leads to...
The place was deserted for about an hour, so we had the park to ourselves. It's kind of creepy really.
But now there's some nice new paving, some fountains, the dinosaur has been moved, and the simulator next to it has been rethemed to "Dino Island 3D". It's actually really good!
This place used to be old, and had a dirty pool with, for some reason, a dinosaur in it. :/
It is! So of course that was our first stop. This thing is INTENSE. I swear other drop towers must be braked or something, because this thing totally caught me off guard.
Is that a rainbow-coloured Intamin drop tower I see?
What you see when you walk into the park.
The colourful entrance to the park (with the biggest crowd ever waiting to get in)
