SFoG looks soooo cool! I really want to go make it out there next time I'm down south.

Doesn't know how to spell "Enthusiast."

Yeah, I hope I can go there someday! Looks like a pretty fun park to me. =)

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

you've got some nice pictures there, Electerik — i keep feeling like i should go to Six Flags Over Georgia since it's probably the closest “major” park that i haven't been to, but then i realize that “closest” means an 8-hour drive, and start to think “maybe next year…” but, i don't know… maybe i will get down (up?) there this year… or, not…

Mullets never go out of style!

FAIL! Not a single rapids shot. ;)

Some great shots in there and glad you both had fun. If you're headed back there this summer and would like to meet up, I'd happily make the drive.

Good report and I did enjoy several of the Goliath shots. Thanks!

Can I park my donkey here?

SFoG is a pretty good park when everything is running. I do say they could add another coaster or 2 and a few more flat rides (I.E. Huss Giant Frisbee, Mondial Inferno, Tivoli Re-Mix, KMG XXL, Kamikaze, Fabbri Evolution)

also, to really enjoy the park, you have to be there on the right days. some days you just really get all the riff-raff, some others you get super extreme crowds, and the rest of the days where the crowds are light are the best days to go. that's when you get to ride pretty much whatever is running and just really enjoy the scenerey and not have to worry about fighting lines and people.


and yes, what is up with Ninja's lake being drained?

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Great TR of my favorite SF park! Makes me miss it terribly, especially since I doubt I'll get to make it down there this year. My only complaint about the place is the lack of flats, otherwise it's a great park. I've never had any horrific experiences with unruly guests, just the occasional disgruntled employee, but I've had that with virtually every corporate park I've been to.

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

While in Atlanta, we checked out the Georgia Aquarium. I never used to be much interested in aquariums, but Misty really likes them. As a result, I've been visiting a lot more of them, and they're really starting to grow on me.

I'm including these photos for anyone who might be interested. But be warned: the closet thing to a credit here is a slide. :P

World's Largest Aquarium

An interesting challenge...I guess I could have just taken the stairs. :OP
04P3080651.JPG
Ticket booths. They also had a (temporary) Titanic exhibit and a 3-D show, both upcharges.
10P3080656.JPG
The entrance lobby. It's strikingly cool/elegant in person.
18P3090960.JPG
You are in your house (presumably).
20P3080664.JPG
The aquarium is arranged somewhat like a shopping mall.
21P3080675.JPG
Kind of a boring fish, but I like the photo.
22P3080714.JPG
How many seahorses do you see?
23IMGP3092.JPG
The alligators really seemed to like this little girl. Isn't that sweet?
34P3080835.JPG
Beluga Whales
40P3080728.JPG
The entrance to the world's largest aquarium tank thingy (at the world's largest aquarium complex).
42P3080736.JPG
Underwater tunnel fun.
43IMGP2972.JPG
The world's largest fish, the whaleshark.
47P3090937.JPG
See? I told you it was big.
49IMGP3002.JPG
The Georgia Aquarium actually has four whalesharks.
55IMGP3116.JPG
No fish served in the restaurant, but there was an impressive selection of desserts.
61P3080693.jpg
Jellyfish are from Mars.
63IMGP2939.JPG
Here be the tropical fish.
65IMGP2933.JPG
Hello...? Anybody out there?
72P3080679.JPG
I have no idea what these are. I mean, beyond fish.
80P3090970.JPG
The exit gift shop. So far, this is the best aquarium I've been to. Thanks for anyone out there who's still with me. :O)
