Lost my seat on Astro Orbiter at Disneyland last night because a family lied about the number of rockets needed.

I've been meaning to go check out this little park forever and a day. There is definitely a little KBF flavor in some of these nice shots; very cool. Cool report; thanks!

^Get out there - it's a short drive. Bud's trains alone are worth the trip. I hear tickets are up for grabs - take pity and toss $10 to sponsor Chad's Give Kids the World entry. You'll have to get by me and my $20 donation. :)

Re: Chadster's Vacation Adventures: Photo TR Credit Whore Pa

Today's adventure brings me to All Star Adventures in Wichita, KS. So what is in Wichita you ask? As the states largest city(is that even saying much) they are dubbed the Air Capital of the World with companies such as Learjet, Spirit, and Boeing leading the air industry there. Outside of that the city is made up mostly of museums, theater's and the world's second largest IMAX.

The town was also home to Joyland which closed in 2007. More on that in a separate thread later this week. That leaves All Star as the town's only form of amusement entertainment and I must say I was surprised, but not overly so. The mini golf course was amazing and they had an ok collected of amusements, arcade games, and some of the slowest go-karts around. Trust me, they looked faster that what they were.

And Congratulations to PAL for winning 2 Castle Park tickets from last week!

Anyway, enjoy your look at this two credit, credit whore park!
