Looks like Zamperela land! That Rock'n Tug is a pretty decent ride, great for kids who aren't quite ready for coasters. :lmao:

I was digging through the 600+ shots from my Monday visit to SFMW and just came across the photo below. It's cropped out of a set of photos that were taken during Boomerangs first lift/drop. I have a full burst set of pictures of this lady making crazy faces that I'm about to turn into an animated GIF. I've been sitting here laughing my A$$ of for the last 5 minutes so I figured I should share the goodness.

The lady in the yellow is priceless. That's a Vekoma face if I've ever seen one! :lmao:

BTW I'm working on a huge update that includes all the images outside of the Tava's tour. Link coming soon.

So how many kids areas does this make for SFMW now? There's the Loony Tunes one, this one, and any others?

Seems like a smart direction for them to be going in.

^ Well, there are only two dedicated kiddie areas, but the whole park - with the exception of the coasters near the gate - is pretty much a kid's area, really. There are family-friendly rides throughout, there's feed-the-giraffes, ride-the-elephants, and pet-the-rays, and all the shows are firmly pitched toward the 5th-grader mentality.

I know I'm an old grouch, but...the SFMW crowd has always been more mixed, age-wise, than its range of attractions has been, and it shows. When I've gone with my grade-school friend, the kid's coaster near Medusa has always been a walk-on, even when the Medusa queue was endless. And, though I only go on weekdays, I've never noticed the Looney Tunes area being at all crowded, partly because there's so much else to for kids to do everywhere in the park. Head-corporate must have decided that the teenage-and-above market, not to mention those of us fogies who don't need a babysitter, just wasn't worth pursuing, so they're (metaphorically) expanding Fantasyland while letting Tomorrowland rot. And I'm looking at switching my SF pass to PGA next season...
