Photo TR: Mampato lo Barnechea, Santiago

Postby coasterschile » Mon Jan 06, 2014 8:16 pm

A few weeks ago I went to a park that is near my house with a friend and a cousin. The park is called Mampato, and is located on the very edge of Lo Barnechea (a zone in Santiago) The park is principally focused on kids, so if you have a little son/daughter/kids and you bring them to Chile, they would have fun in here ;) . The park was desert that day, almost no people.
here's the entrance of the park
It's a small little outdoor park, with classic fair-attractions
Birthday Huts! This park is a little obssesed with birthdays...
And Trycicles!
Wait. Is that a trycicle gasoline station?! Cool. It also has the brand of a real gas stations! Well done, Terpel, you've created Trycicle gasoline! You'll be a millionare company now. Kids will go nuts when they hear that the price of trycicle gasoline increased by 10%
And a trycicle tunnel?! I need to ride a trycicle, right now!
ahh Rueda Panoramica, fun ride but, I almost lost my bag. When I rode this I let the bag off, and told the operator to keep it. Well, when I was riding, one of the operator put the bag on one of the cars of the ride, when I went off the ride the operator told me that I had to guess on which car it was. Finally I got my bag back and they told me that they weren't responsible about my stuff, but hey, they manipulated my bag so if I lost it, maybe they could be fired now. So here's the thing: keep your thing with you all the time when you're at this park.
Here's the inflatables, in this place there was a Tagada, but Mampato took it off for some time, it will be back again soon. Mampato always does that with the Samba ride (Tagada) also there was a swinging viking ship that put riders upside-down, but Mampato also took it off for some time
Oh, here's the "Mini-mini-mini-Jr.-Jr. Splash"
Oh, that drop...I feel goosebumps everytime I see it
Sqlooshi Sqlooosh! (sorry for copying your word, Robb) Ohhh dat log, it reminds me to go to the bathroom (just ignore that comment)
The food was ok
Ou la laa! Popcorn!
Here it is, CASA DEL TERROOOR! A haunted House dark ride
When I was a little kid I used to get soo scared on this, but now it was funny, though.
Bumper Cars! Awesome traditional ride here in Mampato. I was an hour riding it because the park was desert so we could get on and on without getting out. One hour riding it, that's my record of riding Bumper Cars
Well, I rode it 1 hour, but my friend and my cousin where 2 hours on it! (I can believe that they didn't got bored) While I was the hour alone walking through the park I took all the photos for this TR
Here's the credit. A Wacky Worm coaster, pretty original, don't you think?
It was actually fun, and relaxing. I didn't rode a coaster for a long time so I was very happy to go on Happy Mountain (ironic? neh)
Weeee! Everyone having fun

This was a fun slide, had some pretty good airtime
when I took this particular photo, I noticed that I lost my wallet :(
This was necessary for this summer days when it's really hot in Santiago, because the climate here is dry
Zamperla drop tower! Pretty fun ride. Let's see the views that this baby offers
Nice view of the landscape
Well my house is somewhere behind the buildings over there
WTF?! A giant pedo Santa Claus in one of the entrances?
I can see a tiny animal train over there. Kinda cute, though
And I also can see my legs! (And the bag that I almost had stolen)
There's also a sea lion with guacamayos (birds) show! One of the main attractions
Nice Zamperla family ride
And a Telecombat ride!
Also when you enter the park, instead of buying a ticket, you buy a wristband (with lots of ponys) Thanks for watching this Photo TR! PD: The park has more rides than the ones that I showed you, but my cellphone doesn't have enough memory :)
Sorry for my English

Definitely a little kids park. Always cool to see parks in places most people never visit.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Thanks for sharing. The most spectacular thing there seems to be the weather...oh wait...maybe the nonstop bumpercars driving :p

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

2 hours on the bumper cars sound like one of my visits to SFOG.

Nice report! I like seeing these tiny parks we never hear of.

Why do I still have a donkey title???
