Photo TR: Oaks Amusement Park!

Recommended Posts

This is my first TR... so... it's bad. I went to Oaks Park a couple weeks ago and it was so fun! We got there around four or five, and stayed 'til it got dark. They got a Disk-O and a Rockin' Tug - they were there last year but I didn't take pictures. The Disk-O is running better than last year, it's funner and more forceful! I went on the Rockin' Tug twice this year.

 

But sadly, the evil Pinfari coaster is still painful. The lights at night are pretty, though!

 

(REALLY sorry about the photo quality, the camera I use does that. It's really annoying.)

 

(I can't make funny captions. It's too hard.)

The bumper cars have a long line. And they get pileups easily.

The hot air balloon ride is fun if you spin it really fast!

They had the Spider ride! It's fun but takes a long time to load/unload.

Um... no comment.

The Rock-O-Planes... never been on it. But I heard one little girl call it 'the rat cages'.

The park had these little arcade areas. And this one had a Lord of the Rings pinball machine!

Yes! Now I have one... two... three! I have three!

Let's go get bracelets now.

Hey, what's that I see? No, not the coaster, the DISK-O!

The smallish Ferris wheel! I took this from the parking lot. Never been on it, though.

Part 2

They have a huge picnic area, and these tent things everywhere. I don't really know what's happening here.

SSCN2381.JPG.54d0a01eae85ab6c66eaadce45def12f.JPG

An abandoned cooler! I know, you don't really need to see this.

We went on the train, so here are a ton of crappy pictures from it. This first one is the Willamette river! Very pretty.

Oops, this came out blurry. The Afterburner was called the Screamin' Eagle. It really did run a good program!

SSCN2378.JPG.f57ee461c47d96504368107de9fde1fc.JPG

The KMG Afterburner!!! It's so fun... but scary! I went on it for the first time that day.

Safety first on the bumper cars.

Look! It's the midway!

SSCN2375.JPG.856deadb75eeb36467bb71c2f28721ec.JPG

Wait... is that an M&M vending machine?

SSCN2374.JPG.ddb41ededdbfbdd46309a2928a85d0dd.JPG

Yay for credit whoring! This coaster is called 'Zooom' on the rcdb, but it didn't have the name anywhere on the ride! It actually has more airtime than the Looping Thunder. I went on it twice.

The frog hopper! it's so cute...

What a relief... the ride's over.

SSCN2390.JPG.119552e0ed6f924b8e2cc0f55a58ae47.JPG

Ha... everyone's clinging to their restraints.

SSCN2389.JPG.377bcf37486407c6e97a6f3a6e373699.JPG

The Rock-O-Planes, Round Up (you can barely see it), and part of the Disk-O.

SSCN2388.JPG.953536c665aaf665c9853e8aab7a55b4.JPG

The Disk-O... through the scrambler! At night!

SSCN2387.JPG.608cc07d5227bf80ceb98fa23028eb91.JPG

No alcohol!

SSCN2386.JPG.b108befefbe52caab94f706ce62f66a9.JPG

Oh no, there's the coaster again!

SSCN2385.JPG.d5c01c7b9bc5d511e9bbc511ca1ad043.JPG

There was this abandoned birthday party. And one guy was left sitting in a chair? We waved to him and yelled "HI!"

SSCN2384.JPG.0fa05d2e8b3005c5858a5ac9804dad64.JPG

Looks like those people were having a fiesta. Er... 'eifsta'? We waved to them too.

Another abandoned cooler!

Not crappy at all! . Good photo trip report. I love those Disk-o rides. The only one I have been on is the one at Dollywood. This park reminded me of Joyland in Lubbok. It has the Spyder, rock-o-planes etc. I enjoy small parks like these for some reason.

 

On I side note I think you may have been the first one to shoot a Disk-O through a Scrambler picture .

"What, no funny comment, yet you made a funny about abandon coolers - and you call that not a funny comment?

 

Hey, that was a great Photo Travel Report you did - not bad at all on your first go around.

 

One last thing, you said on your report concerning the Pinfari coaster:

 

But sadly, the evil Pinfari coaster is still painful.

 

Now, I'm sure that coaster can't be that bad and painful. Err, just how painful is it?

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

 

Err, just how painful is it?

 

It's rough, and there's some headbanging. There's nowhere to put your outside elbow because of the train design, so you do have to cling to the restraints. And the restraints don't feel very sturdy or clean. I think I got a bruise on my arm just from riding it...
