On one of my return weekend visits to the park since opening weekend,
I took more photos of the park's Brand New Attraction....Rock 'N' Cars.

And a sign photo for you, Larry. Sorry I can't get it lit at night. Yet.
That won't happen until the PNE, late August. :wink:

Here's a few more non-riding-coaster shots I took, before we all climbed aboard Coaster
and screamed ourselves silly!

Thanks Robb and Elissa, for organizing this morning shoot on Coaster and (sighs) The Corkscrew.
And Thank You to the Playland coaster ride ops for really hauling butt, getting that Coaster train
(and the Corkscrew train) through the station.

I watched the footage of the girls on the rider cam. There is some SERIOUS stand-up hair time in that footage! Should have it online in a couple of weeks.

Here's some photos I took in Playland, last weekend.

I think my biggest, latest surprise, after actually looking around a bit,.
was the grilled cheese place Cheese Please. I did not know it existed,
until this visit. And the add-ons look great, too.

And it also made me think - I have never seen such a theme park food place
anywhere in my TPR world tour travels, that I remember. Which then
makes me ask...are these grilled cheese sandwich stalls any where else in
the world? In any parks, theme or non-? I can't remember, lol. I do know there's
a food truck in the city, that sells grilled cheese sands. So......?

Next visit... A Playland Food TR... on their grilled cheese sandwich place, CHEESE PLEASE! ;)

Am pretty sure it's this kind of flat.

Called an XXL?
