Adventureland


Welcome to rainy day at Adventureland

We just got done with Adventure Bay so we decided to do Outlaw first

Lots and twists and dives

Fun times

Since the Circus was getting ready to start when we got off Outlaw we decided to go watch it to get out of the rain

Kind of step down from Cirque du Soleil

Jugglers

Well that was interesting - at least the rain has stopped now

Sidewinder is probably my favorite flat ride in the park

I blame Derrijk - he wanted to ride the Dragon

The smiles are fake because the pain is real

Ouch Ouch Ouch

Ouch Ouch Ouch

These mirrors are great

Oh my goodness

We spent a lot of time in there laughing

My 2nd favorite flat ride here is the Lighthouse

This "coaster" is just weird.

It just feels like a huge inside joke

Tornado was next

We got some crazy airtime on it today

You have to get a photo with the pig when you're at the park

We decided to take a round trip on the Sky Ride

Why do I always get stuck with my younger sister?

This is probably my favorite ride at the park - the Sky Ride not the Flume

We had a great time today, despite the rain.  Always fun to have the entire family together

Adventure Bay


Welcome to Adventure Bay.
and Hooray for having the entire family here.

So it's a little cold today, but that's fine as the water is heated at this park.

Typhoon is a lot fun with it's funnel midway down the slide

The Bermuda Quadrangle features 4 different raft slides

The two most unique are the topsy turvy slide and the bullet bowl slide

Fun little kiddie splash pad going unused so far today

The speed slides are a little intimidating - but a lot of fun

Like normal, Barrel Butt beat all of us down the racer slides

It seriously feels straight down when you're on it

We walked a lap around the lazy river

They make you rent tubes for it - which I find strange

We ended the day by playing a little on the waterfortress.

We didn't last long because the water isn't heated for the fortress.

I think we lasted long enough - time to dry off and head into Adventureland

Splashin' Safari


Welcome to Splashin' Safari - let's get our locker and go play!

Wahtube was first on our list

Next was Otorongo.  Go is still my favorite of the 3.

ZOOMbabwe is still my favorite slide here

Going into the bowl backwards on Zinga still scares the crap out of me

Like normal, Barrel Butt beat both Hil and myself on Jungle Racers

So why couldn't they have had cool things like this when I was younger?

Did somebody say Wildebeest time?

Honestly this might be the most perfect slide ever built.

The amount of airtime you get on this thing is insane.

The only bad thing about this slide is the line

Bakuli time - yep a HUGE toilet bowl slide

Derrijk and I had a great time in Kima Bay

So this is part of the waterpark now

I honestly don't get the point of it.  You barely get wet

How about some old school lazy river fun?

These are the two oldest raft slides in the park - but two of the best

We'll end the day with some Bahari wave pool fun

This is by far the best waterpark in the nation
