[PC] Evergreen Park - Season 4 (1998)


Recommended Posts

Season 1 - 1995

 

 

36003321320_747fb1531f_b.jpg

I've always been fascinated with amusement parks since I was a small child when my folks first took me to Disneyland. But here in Washington, there isn't much to choose from. That was until "Evergreen Park" was announced to be the premiere amusement park in Washington. Said to bring three "worlds first", whatever could that mean? Fast forward 24 months, and here we are on opening weekend, 1995.

Walking towards the entrance, tickets, and guest services to the left. The parks also offers "Green Pass", a front of the line wristband offered on some of the popular rides.

Foxo Coffee Shop - the parks own brand of coffee proved to be VERY popular. But 10-minute lines for $12 mocha's that are sub-par to Starbucks? No thanks.

 

36001997580_8dd7a7a6f9_b.jpg

Opposite of Foxo Coffee Shop is Burger Patio. The place wasn't half bad with serving massive burgers & sea-salted fries.

 

35590853953_3f9d01e033_b.jpg

This large, protruding structure seems to house an advanced thrill ride with SFX. Line was outrageous and it doesn't offer Green Pass, so it was a skip.

 

35590853643_7a01488b87_b.jpg

Antique Autos was a pleasant surprise for me. I haven't seen something like this and I was eager to try it out.

 

36001997410_b336982769_b.jpg

Everyone else had the same idea as me. A full queue with waits exceeding 45 minutes at some points in the day. The ride is decked out in a lush garden package making it a fun scenic ride.

 

Full POV recorded later in the evening WITH the park's permission.

 

35590853773_7662f0ccd3_b.jpg

Evergreen Park has another gentle ride across the midway from Antique Autos.

 

35590853723_f0cddb7057_b.jpg

Swan Boats, a $5 up-charge attraction. I enjoyed the view from the pier more than the ride itself. But that's just me!

Vortex, another worlds first. This attraction has an identity issue. It doesn't know if it wants to be a fun, family spinning ride. Or a vomit educing death machine. Another skip.

 

36001997070_64aaa399b6_b.jpg

The parks signature.... well, ONLY roller coaster. Mouse Trap.

 

35590853553_ef136cc893_b.jpg

Mouse Trap proved to be popular, a solid 55-minute wait all day.

 

36230650282_0b03e8e8ec_b.jpg

Green Pass saved me. Only a 5-minute wait. Worth every penny.

 

36230650162_3cca1eca21_b.jpg

Apparently this is the world’s first "spinning wild mouse" coaster. Looks interesting.

 

Full POV recorded WITH the park's permission.

 

35590853233_e4a44f32ca_b.jpg

As the sun started to set, I finally mustered up the courage to try Psycho. Another worlds first attraction.

 

36230649982_4420b04874_b.jpg

Green Pass never fails me.

 

35590853183_63ae2c2938_b.jpg

Looks almost too intense for me!

 

35590853053_41eb2dd3c0_b.jpg

Lines finally started to die so I managed to get a bite to eat.

 

36230649742_e3444d49d7_b.jpg

One of my favorite areas of the park, always so quiet and peaceful.

 

36230649712_af0f93ed92_b.jpg

With the sun starting to set, Grand Carousel's lighting package began to shine.

 

36230649632_4963d8592c_b.jpg

Vortex, vortexing guests around.

 

35590852793_e9c62d3a6f_b.jpg

Antique Autos is a big crowd draw here. The lines never ended.

Shutout to the ride ops who managed to keep the lines moving swiftly all day.

 

36230649422_4b2af50aca_b.jpg

I enjoyed Mouse Trap even more in the dark. Packs a punch with a tiny footprint.

 

35590852693_4e4b43165f_b.jpg

The last ride of the night was Maximum 4D Xtreme. I was curious to find out what it was.

 

35590852643_344ceeb301_b.jpg

Turns out it is your standard inverting spinning thrill ride. Pleasantly surprised how well the ride experience came together with such basic light & fog props.

Until next time....

36340685662_1f7e6d3038_c.jpg

Today marks the third opening weekend at Evergreen Park and the park has added a plethora of new attractions!

 

36340685992_1460a8c342_c.jpg

AMERICANA looks interesting!

 

36371893581_4ac7e066e3_c.jpg

The NEW Americana themed area is impressive upon first glance.

 

36462557286_05ab1f0bcc_c.jpg

American Eats has a great selection of Ice Cream, Slurpees, and Pizza

 

36340686462_2ecedb8fd5_c.jpg

Lots of classic midway games.

 

36462557196_fdec6c7a6c_c.jpg

The Que for Tea Party was insane for such a mild ride.

 

35700631973_be80132bc2_c.jpg

But it is something to look at.

 

36462557206_ec06e901a3_b.jpg

Even the classic Bumper Car "Dodgems" had a lengthy Que. This area was PACKED all day.

 

36340687082_c44f64cfeb_c.jpg

The Main attraction here is American Eagle, a wooden roller coaster.

 

36340687562_9dd4c4cbcf_c.jpg

The 88-foot first drop sends you shaking 54 mph through a 2412-foot course.

 

36462557716_b0bd3c9d09_c.jpg

Night began to fall, and the Fort Theater opened up for its nightly showing.

 

36340687692_8ab5036427_c.jpg

Tonight's movie was "Gone With the Wind", an American classic.

 

36462557406_a83584bcc8_c.jpg

The games area was busy towards sunset.

 

36340687352_d1e614d179_c.jpg

Tea Party was a unique experience, especially at dusk

 

36462557846_d30dc86796_c.jpg

Hard to photograph, but Dodgems sports a nice light package.

 

36340687172_ce8fca8195_c.jpg

Final ride of the night was American Eagle

 

36462557476_74a3d68349_c.jpg

Exciting!

Season 4 - 1998

 

 

 

36751390645_b7d7b62e73_b.jpg

It's finally opening day at Evergreen Park!

 

 

36751391005_ebbebef90f_b.jpg

I was eager to get back to riding American Eagle. The coaster always delivers a solid ride.

 

 

36751390815_0e8923a69a_b.jpg

Antique Autos is still as popular as ever.

 

 

36751391115_4294f12edd_b.jpg

I noticed a brand new midway had been added this season. Let us take a look.

 

 

36751391185_ea94731390_b.jpg

The first new ride I noticed was the Bullet. Looks really old-school, but MAN! This ride is crazy fun!

 

 

36751391225_ee8f660810_b.jpg

Another new ride, The Pirate.

 

 

36751391345_b8edacf813_b.jpg

Gigantic!

 

 

36751391455_d2056b2566_b.jpg

I noticed a new gift shop, picnic shelter, and the parks first dine-in restaurant.

 

 

36751391705_9f3f71548c_b.jpg

The food at Portside Grub wasn't half bad . Although a $6 hot dog was too expensive for me.

 

 

36751391935_2c9028993a_b.jpg

The main new attraction here is Jet Stream. Featuring the worlds first triple-interlocking corkscrews. Neat!

 

 

36751392185_a025e39c6f_b.jpg

Twin vertical loops over the lake.

 

 

36751392115_5dee441f73_b.jpg

The line today was massive, as I expected. Everyone wanted to try out this bad boy. The regular line posted a 90-minute wait.

Green Pass reduced it down to 15-minutes.

 

 

36751392285_1735b02d2c_b.jpg

Jet Stream traversing the unique triple-interlocking corkscrews.

 

 

36751392645_baf4ac5a94_b.jpg

As the sun went down, the lights came on. Bullet looks great when lit up.

 

 

36751392735_4a8fa3775d_b.jpg

Looking down the "boardwalk" as I like to call it.

 

 

36751392815_0c6b9d4ee0_b.jpg

Jet Stream has become my new #1 coaster at Evergreen Park. This thing is butter-smooth and offers plenty of inversions.

An all-around fun coaster.
