sorry we missed you Nrthwnd, here’s the photos we got when we went on the last day, I left around 7PM and my friend left around 6ish, I was able to win close to $200 total at the Under/Over tables this year, not too bad.
^ Thanks, Phil. And "just so ya know for long term planning", with the way calendars go year to year, next year's PNE should be Aug.17-Sept.02/19. And the 'Out At The Fair' Day. should happen on Thurs.Aug.29th, if they want it to happen again, within the Fair's second week.
Just a guess, mind. But possible, for now. And you easily buy your tix online, once they become available for the Fair, the Concert Series, Playland tix, etc.
My friend and I are going to Playland tomorrow because it's the only day we could both get off. It's suppose to rain about 20mm tomorrow so I wanted to know what are the chances of the rides running. The rain doesn't bother me, I don't mind getting wet. I just want to be able to go on the rides.
I was ready for supposed, predicted, downpours today, at the park. Had my poncho handy, etc. But it didn't rain. At - all while I was there. Lots of clouds overhead. Dark grey ones. But no rain came down, and it was an easy couple of hours there.
I got two more rides on Coaster, bringing my total to 55 rides on it this season. 10 away from my goal of "65", which is the age I turned this past March. I wanted to marathon it in one or more days. But it wasn't open the first month of the season, and then.....well.... it didn't seem plausible to try that. So getting 65 rides in before Fright Nights end has been The Goal, for now. And I should reach it by Fright Nights, definitely
P.S. After 4:30 this afternoon, we got MONSOON-style downpours, dumped all over the city! Finally!
<sighs> Hells Gate never seemed to get a chance, this entire season.
After riding Coaster twice, I took a photo of this.
Starting to get ready for Fright Nights in October.
Yellow train running.
"Ya wanna got FAST-TER???"
On The West Coast Wheel. Overcast skies, everywhere.
Horse racing today at Hastings Park.
Downtown. And look ma, no fire smoke!
Clouds only. No fire smoke here......for now.
Burnaby in the distance.
Where Haunted House dark ride used to be during the PNE.
I miss the Ride Side Bar already. And does anybody say "highballs" anymore?
Secret passageway still secretly there.
The most landscaping and theming in the entire park. For the kids' train ride.
One more Whee!
And then...it was closed. Supposed to "open later," but I'd finished today's visit.
There was some rain falling, today. But nothing "torrential" etc. Still, there was hardly anyone at the park, which made it a bit difficult to gather people together to ride Coaster! Their "standard" is a minimum of 12 people to run a Coaster train. My last ride (of four, today), it took us 20 minutes to get 12 people on board! So after that ride, I figured it was enough time spent there, and headed home.
