It was agony. Certain rides always make me laugh like that. Scramblers, Music Expresses, Spinning coasters (that spin) all produce that horrifying cackle. It can be embarrassing. But that caterpillar was fun. I thought I was going to keep it somewhat together until we passed the fan the first time. Then it was all over.

A Mr. Rogers ride... how flippin amazing!
I remember when I was a little kid how I always wished that I could shrink down and ride the trolley. Mainly because it went through those tunnels, haha.

I plan on hitting up Idle Wild next summer. I can not wait!

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Haha I miss Mr. Rogers from when I was little, it had to be the best show on TV. It looks like a fun little trolley ride, it brings back a lot of good memories.
Is it sad my first thought goes to Family Guy?

I thought the exact same thing actually. :lolr: Great pictures, looking forward to another update.

Going through that tunnel on Mr. Rogers was like going through a time warp, and entering into a world where I was 6 again...

Thinking on it, the whole park was like that. It was a beautiful park, and very well themed. It had a lot more character than most major theme parks.

The Paul Bunyan Log Ride song in the queue was fantastic, confusion hill was awesome (hehehe willy), Adult hand crank cars, Gyros, and really just everything.

Bravo to Idlewild. I agree with everyone, it really is underrated.

I haven't been to Idlewild in YEARS, great to see it hasn't changed at all. I also like how Kennywood Ent. kept the old rides that no longer fit at Kennwood and put them into Idlewild. (Catapillar was replacement of a model they already had, Tilt-a-whirl, and hopefully they still have the Super Round-up and and some others!)

So Nick just reminded me of one of the most interesting moments of the trip.

While on the Thunder bus, on our way to Busch Gardens, the Lightning bus is in front of us. They drove past someone on a Bike and the wind knocked the person right into the road! We had to swerve and thankfully, our super awesome bus driver, Fred, didn't run them over.

That was a weird moment.

I seriously miss this trip, I'm having withdrawals.

Is there a TPR Rehab I can go to?
