As always, I enjoy your reports, and I like how you picked one area of the park to cover in-depth. I really enjoyed Legoland Florida. I'd never been to a Legoland before, so I don't know how it compares to the other parks, but I was impressed with what I saw.

 

Well, except for this. I agree with you on the food. I had a grilled cheese from one of the places towards the front of the park, and this is what I got:

Even if it wasn't missing half the bread, this still wouldn't look remotely appetizing.

 

But hey, beyond that, it was a lovely place!

 

Looking forward to your next Oddventure.

Since everybody likes Smisty so much better than me all of a sudden, I'm replacing her with Bryan until you all apologize.

 

Erik & Bryan's Titanic Adventures!

Because we're both fat, you see.

 

And also, because we went here:

 

Titanic The Experience

In the early days of our courtship, Bryan and I were looking for something romantic and indoors to do, possibly involving a large number of people dying. So where else could we go??

This is the best part of the exhibit, because at this point you still have your illusions.

I am Mr. Eugene Daily, 3rd Class Passenger. I enjoy dancing a jig, and being locked in the steerage sections of sinking cruise ships.

Bryan paid extra (I made that up) to be a fancy-pants Second Class Passenger, a one Mr. Joseph Laroche. But they fooled him, because they made him a black guy. Ha ha, Bryan, you're dead!

"You gentlemen know that you're grown adults, right?"

He then quizzed us on how much we'd been paying attention by making us guess which way the boat in the painting was sailing...?!

 

Somehow, we passed.

So we got to see this junk.

 

I'm sorry, I shouldn't call it junk.

 

What's an old-timey word for junk?

 

Like, crapola?

We kept telling them that we needed separate bedrooms, but they didn't believe us!

I don't think there were that many exit signs on the real Titanic. (Or maybe that was the problem...?!)

Ah, there's nothing I enjoy more than looking at stairs that I'm not allowed to climb!

This ghostly voice was recovered from the wreckage of the Titanic. It now haunts Titanic The Experience here in Orlando.

Oh my god, it's Edith! And she's going to crash us!

 

I'm just kidding. This place sucks.

Hey, I lived! Sweet!

 

Let's check in on the black dude....

Oh, I'm sorry, Bryan. Better luck next time.

I don't think I've ever seen a model of a destroyed thing before. Neat...?

63P2052247.JPG.60c5ea147846c9f57a6b1bc296225bf0.JPG

Bryan, no! We'll get kicked out!

 

Um...on second thought, touch away.

The gift shop is a little sparse.

 

I'm not just being my usual witty self, by the way. That's pretty much the look of the whole "gift shop."

Okay, but seriously, can *you* tell which way this ship is sailing? It's devilishly clever! If you think you know the answer, write it down on a clean sheet of 4x6.2 inch paper, fold it in half lengthwise, and then throw it in the trash.

 

Damn, Misty is smart.

I am fascinated/haunted by the Titanic. I guess it's kind of a morbid fascination, but I love reading all about it. I've done extensive research (for no reason whatsoever) on it. Danny and I saw a traveling version of this in Birmingham years ago. I was enthralled.

I like exactly 1/2 of this

 

That's too much.

 

Also, I should probably mention that cameras are not permitted, but it's okay to take pictures with your cell phone.

 

That can't be right. Maybe it's just that there's no flash photography. I've blocked a lot of this out, but I'm pretty sure it's the first one.

How much money am I saving by not visiting?

 

I believe it was around $20 per person. And I'm pretty sure we paid full price, or close to it.

 

I blame Bryan.

 

Well I don't blame Misty for leaving you; spending money so foolishly. But thanks for making me laugh.

^ It's perfectly simple: Stavros, the Greek fisherman, finds a magical seahorse (Hermes) which leads him to Atlantis. He encounters shadiness and duplicity there, but tourists are already on the way to check the place out and nobody listens to him. He tasks Hermes with guiding the tourists through Atlantis and keeping them safe--for the Atlanteans are indeed not as friendly as they first appear. Hermes goads them into revealing their true nature by start a water fight with Allura (the Siren), who then transforms into Scrylla (the Gorgon/Medusa thing). She hurls water blasts at you, which shake Atlantis and expel you! But she's not done yet. She draws you back into Atlantis and is about to consume you among the wrecked ships, when Hermes flies in and dispels her, allowing you to escape along the path she was blocking.

 

Duh.
