Our next stop on the trip was a "bonus park" (meaning we didn't tell anyone on the trip we were coming here until we pulled into the parking lot), and ended up being one of the more "accidentally funny" moments of the trip.

They told me "When you see Uncle Sam...you know you're in the right place!"

Magic Forest is a small little family park in Lake George. They invited us to come and ride their little "roller coaster", and it actually was a pretty amazing experience.

Ok, everyone is loaded up...ready to go?

The train goes up...clank, clank, clank....and then... KERCHUNK!!! STOP!!! ROLL BACK!!!!

LOL!!! SERIOUSLY! We rolled back... too many fat theme park geeks on the ride! Really, the pictures don't do it justice...you'll have to watch the video! This was seriously one of the most "accidentally funny" moments in TPR history!

After three tries...and kicking out a few fatties...we finally made it over the hill!!!

Hooray! Credit!!!


Next group makes it! Hooray!

This credit is serious business for some people!

Hooray for being credit whores! We couldn't have asked for a more awesome "final ERT of the trip!"

"Can I fly a real space shuttle now?"

"This is just a natural pose for me...I'm not doing anything dirty."

The park was really "cute!" It's totally one of those nice little story-book land parks made for families.

And of course, having a little roller coaster makes it awesome for TPR!


Hi Allison...how's it going?

"Are those real space shuttle astronauts?"
