Mamba, the one train wonder. While it was only a "station" wait, due to the 3:45 ride cycle, the 10 train wait = almost 40 minutes, this was Friday, June 3. On Saturday, the 4th, it opened with ONE train, CRAZY. The ride op's wanted two, but the mechanics only gave them one to start. I was told the third train should be on track within two weeks. Now, I have to give the crew credit. From the time the train parked, until dispatched, was less then 30 seconds. Just imagine the capacity this crew could pull with three trains!

Chadster's 2011 Trip Diary - Black Gold Days Carnevil Pg 12

Postby chadster » Fri Jun 17, 2011 9:18 pm

So I'm sure you are asking yourself, what in the hell is Black Gold Days. As a matter of fact, that's probably why you clicked the link. Well, simply enough, Black Gold Days is a celebration of when oil was first discovered in Glenpool, Ok in 1905. It features music, crap booths, food, and carnevil rides!

So, this evening (June 17, 2011) I took a stroll around the community park to check it out. Ride tickets were $1 each with each ride needing 3-4 tickets, or you could purchase a wristband for $20. The attractions and games were put on by Pride Amusements (yes, their logo is rainbow colored for those wanting to know) and all seemed to be in great shape with their lighting packages all working (hint hint Cedar Fair).

So off we go to picture land...

Finally, after we've zipped, surged, and banged, we sizzle on the sizzler. And being as it was still 95 outside, it was sizzling.

So there you have it, a look at Black Gold Days in Glenpool, Ok. Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned ove the next two weeks, a slury of reports cometh, including my Adventures in Oregon and Washington with Laura. You won't want to miss it!

Chadster's 2011 Trip Diary - Circus Circus Adventuredome

Postby chadster » Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:55 pm

My latest adventure took me to the Circus Circus AdventureDome in Las Vegas on 6/24/11. Crowds were non existant, everything was walkon at 10pm. With a hotel discount coupon you could get a ride wristband for about $20. As many of you know, this park is good to kill an hour or two, beyond that, mucho boring.

So no more rambling...
