Photo TR: Martin's Fantasy Island 8/10/11


Recommended Posts

I have recently gotten into photography. I decided to take my camera on a quick trip to Fantasy Island yesterday. I shot most of these in manual mode with f-stops ranging from 4-15 and variable shutter speeds. If you have any suggestions on how I can improve my photography please let me know.

We arrived around 1PM, with our discounted tickets in hand.

The Golden Nugget.

New for 2011 Mind Warp (It could be called whiplash because that is pretty much half of the ride.)

The modest Ferris wheel.

This was my favorite ride there. Long ride cycle allowed for some great views.

Not too tall, but tall enough.

The "spinning" Wild Mouse.

I'm a fan of Disk-O's.

Reasonably priced games! And they have IGOTIT!

It rained a little bit, so the slides were closed while the crew dried them off.

Wild west theming, love it.

This slide beat me up a little bit.

Silver Comet at it's peak.

The Toilet Bowl.

While a lot of the park is pavement, there are some nice gardens near the entrance.

They have a great selection of rides for little kids.

IMGP1185.JPG.f5445b4a46f036f990d367e1cc695a41.JPG

They even have some playground slides.

The Free canoes was a highlight of the day.

You got to canoe around a small island inhabited by Native American Statues.

IMGP1249.JPG.5f258c066908e4b6da9c19d22752c336.JPG

Lots of great shots in here! This is another park I'm sorry I never visited while I was still living on the East Coast.

 

Those three flume rider close-ups totally made me LOL.

 

And Mind Warp looks like a complete nightmare. I'll take the Tilt-A-Whirl, thank you very much.
