I read some stuff on ways to distinguish them, but I don't remember what they were, now. Length of tail, or something. In any case, I was never really sure, so I named it Terry. :P

Also what was the Earthquake attraction from next door to the indoor golf place?


Earthquake The Ride, aka Tennessee Earthquake. It's covered way back on page 1 of this thread, and it's awesome.

As for the big finish, there are still a couple of updates I want to do, but a bout of food poisoning has set me back a bit. So I might actually end up wrapping things up from Florida. (Not that you'd really be able to tell.)

Located near at traffic light #3 in Pigeon Forge, The Track consists of two 18-hole mini golf courses, some kiddy rides, and a big honkin’ go cart track.

It's a fairly large piece of property.

How’s about some mini golf?

This obstacle is push-powered.

Gazebo golf.
16IMGP2365.JPG
There’s just something about sitting on a crocodile that makes one think.
20IMGP2351.JPG
The holes are kind of dull. Which is why my captions are so dull. It’s kind of a Kubrick-2001-space-travel thing.
22IMGP2402.JPG
Here in the jungles of deepest Tennessee, we spy a giant pelican and a tiny elephant.

Smisty, apparently tiring of my shenanigans, give the gorilla a try.
30IMGP8034.JPG
The Track also has bumper boats...
33IMGP2423.JPG
...and an arcade. And we like arcades.
35P6228222.JPG
That’s right, bitches, 7. Beat that.
37P6228237.JPG
Around back are some bumper cars. Which, in October, are transformed--via the magic of black trash bags--into “Spooky Bumper Cars.”
39P6228241.JPG
Can you feel the spookiness?
41P6228248.JPG
Is your park poorly laid out and/or badly planned? If so, a really long bridge might be right for you!
43P6228256.JPG
I’m still not sure how this thing works.
45P6228261.JPG
On this side of THE TRACK is the entrance to THE BIG WOODY and some other stuff kids like to ride.
49P6228292.JPG
The Big Woody, decorated for fall.
52P6228270.JPG
The kiddy ride section also has a small go cart track. Disappointingly, this is not called “The Small Woody.”
96IMGP2326.jpg
Just a few spiny kids rides and a small train.

Misty shows off the snake I won for her at the arcade. And thus we end tonight’s update. I am not proud of it.

I love the Track! Big Woody is where Jarett & I spanked the livin' $h!t outta my famly and the rest of those pathetic "would be" racers! It was also January's first Go-Kart ride ever. Needless to say, she was hooked! =)

Such a bummer that this thread will be coming to a close. This has been one of my favorite threads to follow.

You should definitely continue this thread, or start a new one when you make it to Orlando. I saw so many random things in Orlando that I wanted to check out but just didn't have the time or money to do so.

Hope you have a safe and easy move!

-Brian

P.S. Are you two moving there for a job opportunity, or just because it's awesome? Or both?

I call shenanigans. Either Misty is like Cher and does numerous outfit changes, or this update has pictures from several different outings. The trees make me think it the latter, but I'm not convinced. :)

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Add me to the list of folks who are going to be sad to see these updates go. But on the good side - welcome to Orlando! :)

Mullets never go out of style!

Can you explain this diorama? No, you can not.

"Mrs. Lion overwhelmingly decided it was Mr. Lion's night out with the adopted kids and subtly convinced him...with a blunt instrument."

Fun update and yet another winner in this thread. :)

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Awesomeness, mostly. But also for Misty's nearly-completed advanced education.

No jobs waiting. But that's all part of the excitement!
