Today my adventure takes me to Rooster Days in Broken Arrow, Ok. I know what you are asking, what in the hell is Rooster Days? Well, I asked myself the same thing many years ago and here you go. It's the oldest festival in Oklahoma dating back to 1930 something as a way for farmers to sell their excess chickens. Yes, that's right. And since then the festival has morphed into food, music, parades(which thankfully I missed), vendors selling crap, and...Rides!
So now that you know something about it, let's get going!
Oh, and one more thing...even if you don't like cheesy carnivals...Please Comment!
Welcome to Cock Days 2012!
After listening to Roy Clark on stage, you just might need a funeral home...
Typical crap on a stick. But oh so yummy :)
OHHHH!!! I get it! Very funny!
Take note, the largest obstacle course in all of America was right before my eyes!
Which was basically multiple giant inflatables put together to form something where your kids could wear themselves out.
Back over there was were all the food and stuff was. Honestly, too complicated to buy anything this year, even from the crap vendors. EVERYTHING required a ticket and some art for sale was $125. Yeah, I'd like $200 in tickets please?
So on to the main event, one of two carnival lands provided by Pride Amusements. Yes, that's right, Pride Amusements has combined with Cock Days to provide your ride entertainment.
These would be highly legal and challenging midway games.
Didn't they make a really bad city slickers knock off called wild hogs?
Hey look, it's sizzler! Honestly one thing I like about this carnival company is they are not afraid to run their rides balls out.
AVALANCHE!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!
Well well, what do we have here credit whores?
Oh hell to the yeah! (Note: Yes, I do fit on it...barely)
True story, this non English speaking operator refused to stop spinning me around. After 12 times, I had to give him the cut off signal, which was about to become the middle finger...
So anyway, if you are a fan of tail, this is for you.
Most amazing ride evar! Not.
This report has a little of everything, including this shot for nerds!
Hey, look here, more rides!
I figured since you saw it from behind, you'd want to see it from the front as well.
Nice artwork on their generator.
Never really cared for these, even as a kid.
This is a new to me ride, unfortunately I couldn't ride it. Think enterprise wheel but the ride car of a swinging himalaya. They wouldn't let you ride by yourself and despite 15 minutes of trying to get someone to ride with me, I gave up. I only saw it run in test, and whoa, talk about spin and puke. Very disappointed I couldn't ride..
Across the way from the grounds is the local Veterans Memorial. Speaking of Memorial, this Memorial day thank a Veteran, regardless of your political views these people sacrifice for us and deserve a thank you!!
Coming up Next Week: A special Memorial Day edition as I show my top 10 favorite parks!
