So, Holiday Inn Express is the official hotel chain of the Jurassic era? Who knew?

Oh my God! I love the fact that they can tell you what they state is fact, and in the same sentence tell you that it is more than likely wrong. :lover:

These places are filled with awesome!

Turns out the Congo River Golf location in Kissimmee has paddle boats.

It really doesn't take much to talk us into playing mini golf.
01P1050546.JPG
Okay, the flamingo boat is whatever. But just look at the cute little African Queen paddle boats!
05P1050617.JPG
I'm not paying money to hold an alligator. But I would totally buy a shirt if they had them in my size. But they don't because I'm a.) fat, and b.) not a child.
07P1050618b.jpg
This location has two 18-hole courses.
11P1050556.JPG
Both courses are very nice, but pretty much interchangeable.
18P1050652.JPG
Several holes have these spinner things, in case you want to make the game wackier.
19P1050648.JPG
And, like all Congo River Golfs, there's a scavenger hunt!
23P1050568.JPG
I found the mask!
25P1050637.JPG
Wait, I thought the X-Men were good guys....

[Fun with grammar!]
28P1050553.JPG
Those three signs should allow you to triangulate the exact location of Congo River Golf, should you decide you'd like to play here some day.
29P1050640.JPG
Man, Storm really effed-up that dude's ship.
31P1050615.JPG
I was too lazy to walk up there, so I just took a picture.
36P1050591.JPG
That was a joke, by the way.
38P1050653.JPG
How's that spinner thing working out for ya, Smisty?
40P1050609.JPG
This is the least goofy picture I could find of myself.
48P1050676.JPG
Wait, he does? Okay, then we will, too!
61P1050679.JPG
This photo was taken by the Congo River Golf employee who got us set up with the paddle boat. I don't know his name, so I've decided to call him Admiral Kirk, for no specific reason.
63P1050682.JPG
HEART OF DARKNESS
67P1050693.JPG
Well, that's not a good sign.
70P1050689.JPG
About a quarter of the way into our journey, the steering gave out. ADMIRAL Kirk never bothered to check on our progress. It was only the fact of my genetically-engineered intellect that allowed us to survive.

I could go on. Don't test me.

Also worth mentioning is that the Admiral told us that the steering might go out, but didn't actually tell us what we should do if it did. But I shall have my revenge, I assure you. I'll chase him 'round the moons of Nibia and 'round the Antares Maelstrom and 'round Perdition's flames before I give him up!

In other news, we are dead.

That's a pretty nice looking mini golf place.

I, too, like the "African Queen" style paddle boats. Do they give you a nice view of the "backside of water"?

I think I like this mini golf best of them all. It looked as if they had some pretty challenging holes.
