Wild West World P:TR


Recommended Posts

So I went to state fair of the west today. It was to windy to ride anything. Everything was closed.

 

BTW, I am posting the pics in the order that I took them.

DIGI0105.JPG.b6ddeb77b453df8ca8ba49edd232b2cb.JPG

Custom made Chance carousel called La Fiesta.

DIGI0104.JPG.ec3d58618379f7268150c589956e8334.JPG

It's still a pretty ride aside from the headrush, arm pain, and just plain boredom.

DIGI0103.JPG.a98c1e77bca6607aa2246294172ecc95.JPG

IDK what this is called. It was called El Diablo, but staff have been calling it El Torro (yes with two r's).

Um... notice anything?

DIGI0101.JPG.9070d135ec11392e8e1a4cd6ff9762bb.JPG

West corner.

DIGI0100.JPG.14929a7ea61922926b98c8f6f668482e.JPG

Stagecoach. They don't let you climb on this one, but they have a life-size horse that you can.

DIGI0099.JPG.e9191d7505810bfb9ad42d6472789d0d.JPG

Lining up to get through. I got through first cause I'm cool and have a season pass.

DIGI0098.JPG.9c8c2bf9aa3ba6b132cca2f33d2b3043.JPG

"Main Street" as I call it. They had checkers set up by the shops. Sort of like Cracker Barrel! But the shops had all sorts of cool things.

DIGI0097.JPG.97f9adc8f3a7935688e28972bad70dc9.JPG

We found this HILARIOUS!!! I know that they have to post this, but it's still funny!

DIGI0096.JPG.43f6605d4cbb1dc97812d8c4867590a0.JPG

lol! They need to work on their spelling! We were kind of bummed that Sidewinder was closed, but the others, we can deal with.

DIGI0095.JPG.0b8b03d3ad5690c0c64e76470a557f68.JPG

My friend sucks. He doesn't have a season pass like I do. Well, he did get one at the end of the day.

DIGI0094.JPG.2b270853d5b90e8aa46ef27f03d09972.JPG

IT'S FOR REAL!!! THEY ARE GETTING A DROP TOWER!!!

DIGI0092.JPG.9e1bc5cb65a949f3c7cccd2214c386b2.JPG

They have a LOT of admission booths.

DIGI0090.JPG.3d9ec8542deb859958c88b5ab349eb2a.JPG

This was a very nice setting to walk into. This is right before the entrance. The entrance is all-around beautiful!

DIGI0088.JPG.9e6452ee38778092a1682babd455715f.JPG

Wait till you see it lit up at night!

DIGI0087.JPG.52344f875a17546798714d52c62d5655.JPG

There were about two or three buses today. There wasn't many kids though and they left pretty early in the day.

DIGI0086.JPG.d604c7ecd403f1bcd7a0f92039df6426.JPG

Big open entrance.

Pretty bridge.

DIGI0080.JPG.d1e0449dfbc8ef92d1d44ab3875fb2dd.JPG

The wind blew the pole quite a bit.

DIGI0079.JPG.047d55003152294e5d09b33360868d3a.JPG

OMG the wind's strong. And um, where are all of the people? Probably at home AVOIDING THE WIND!!!

Cowboy Country Himilaya. You have to look close and see that it is wild west themed. Except for the car and the Jukebox.

I wish I could have got the whole wheel in one pic, but I'll get it some other time.

So was Tyler. Emily and Zach were too scared to ride the Rodeo Trail.

Amber was part of my group.

Rodeo Trail! I loved this ride. Actually, I did like it. I rode it three times.

DIGI0123.JPG.6fc038e955b37faf29d9d3b1d6ac66bb.JPG

It was pretty crowded today. We hardly got on anything because of the INSANE wait times.

DIGI0122.JPG.be496a9aa8dddfda2071347a9c91653a.JPG

See! Awesome station!

DIGI0121.JPG.bf7d9b1a0b360fcd7132780c7726cab2.JPG

This ride should open THIS Friday or Saturday.

DIGI0120.JPG.e750a2a16e769df8591c45346d2ddf71.JPG

Prairie Plunge Log Flume has a very unique station. It looked great!

DIGI0119.JPG.930309faa008365e82d1ab893c71b870.JPG

Sidewinder. What a great ride. You just *had* to be closed today.

DIGI0118.JPG.ade95bae424c2c7f0eadbcbb65589ebb.JPG

The Jumping Bean. It's actually a good ride!

DIGI0116.JPG.ab86e8e803b9ff6cf9c6b7778d7fc9f0.JPG

This one stayed there four about thirty minutes, and the car on the lift was there all day.

DIGI0115.JPG.7c70bb19fc2aaea18ad84dc2ef9c2f59.JPG

Yes. Crazy Mouse stalled. The wind hit the ride head on causing it to stop.

DIGI0114.JPG.008940bc6b4f864bf935befeae20ede4.JPG

Oh great. What are the ride ops staring at?

BTW on-ride pics were used with permission and were slow rides like ferris wheel, carousel, train, etc.

Nice TR, and WWW looks to have a lot of potential. Since it is the only "major" park in the area, they can attract guests from a good chunk of the Great Plains states. I know the park has received a lot of criticism on this forum due to its lack of trees and grass, but the park just opened. In a few years, this can become a really nice park once the grass and trees grow, and with the drop tower and new coaster coming, things will only get better.

 

Airtime-I bet a water park is due in 2010-&Gravity

It looks like that park was built on a budget of $500. Yuck.

 

Don't be so snobbish, it's no disney, but it shouldn't need to be. Mind you, it isn't in its best state right now, but once the grass grows back, the trees mature, and they get in a couple more good thrillers, it'll be great.

 

I can see the place really taking off soon.

They need at least one really good coaster to hit it big. That's what did it for Beech Bend and Holiday World. Beech Bend has yet to come close to fully maturing, but Holiday World is the fruitful success that was sparked by just one good coaster.

I dont think he is being snobbish just honest. I think the park is looking very empty and everything very spread out. I feel that if focus was on half of the park and making the rides look like they are from the old west it would probably look better. But right now it looks like a rushed job...

^^Eh, well there's honesty and then there's just being iffy.

 

^I'm going to bet it'll be Larson, but they could be using S&S. I think people really only use S&S if at least some of the towers they're purchasing are shot towers though, drop towers can be made by those like Larson for much cheaper.

^ I think (and hope) so too. I think you guys are right though..one coaster or one good thrill ride and it will make the park hit it big..then they can be making money and building real large things. If they can build a 200 ft. tower, they can certainly build a large coaster too..hopefully they make money on that park..It does look really rushed, though.

This is a sad park.. more like a small traveling fair than a theme park. But hopefully they'll keep at it and grow and make something out of it. I agree with others that they REALLY need a good coaster. At least they'll get people to drive thousands of miles for the credit that way.
