I wonder if these birds really were spotted along the Nile.
Mamba, the one train wonder. While it was only a "station" wait, due to the 3:45 ride cycle, the 10 train wait = almost 40 minutes, this was Friday, June 3. On Saturday, the 4th, it opened with ONE train, CRAZY. The ride op's wanted two, but the mechanics only gave them one to start. I was told the third train should be on track within two weeks. Now, I have to give the crew credit. From the time the train parked, until dispatched, was less then 30 seconds. Just imagine the capacity this crew could pull with three trains!
And this is why.
So why not hit up PROWLER!
I even saved a seat for a special coaster enthusiast!
Compared to opening weekend, MUCH MUCH better, two trains, dispatched quickly, and the ride was moving swiftly, kicking some serious butt.
So, I took the train ride, and found the missing kiddie ride.
The sperm are still swimming.
Octopus pu...well you get it.
oh why not another shot of Prowler.
Le Taxi is taxi'ing
Next up, Hot Summer Lights.

So I'm sure you are asking yourself, what in the hell is Black Gold Days. As a matter of fact, that's probably why you clicked the link. Well, simply enough, Black Gold Days is a celebration of when oil was first discovered in Glenpool, Ok in 1905. It features music, crap booths, food, and carnevil rides!
So, this evening (June 17, 2011) I took a stroll around the community park to check it out. Ride tickets were $1 each with each ride needing 3-4 tickets, or you could purchase a wristband for $20. The attractions and games were put on by Pride Amusements (yes, their logo is rainbow colored for those wanting to know) and all seemed to be in great shape with their lighting packages all working (hint hint Cedar Fair).
So off we go to picture land...
So this is supposed to be some oil derek pride thing
this is where you can buy crap, or, get a consultation on plastic surgery. In case you are asking, yes, I was too chicken to get a picture.
The band was warming up for tonights concert.
They have food for all the ethnic crowds, like Taco Salad and Funnel Cakes.
And INDIAN Tacos!!! And for the rednecks, turkey legs.
After you are done there, you go here.
And then you go buy more crap.
After you've shot you wad on crap, it's time to come check out the rides. We'll start off on a nice casual ride on the carousel.
After a nice calm, relaxing ride, we make our way to the AVALANCHE!
So after you've managed to get your stomach pissed off, you can go win a domo by banging it hard.
or perhaps you need another casual ride in the spook house.
before you pee your pants on the Power Surge. Overall the lighting and sound made the ride, I got on a lame seat, not much twisting going on.
so needing a break, you can come over here and win more crap.
or maybe you need another calming ride, like this ferris wheel, seat belt free.
oddly enough, it had the longest line of all of the rides combined.
so let's quite screwing around here and zip it down
some may prefer to zip it up
others may be too drunk to know what the zipper is doing.
so once our zipping has be done, we can spin some more.
this had like a 35 second ride cycle.
so, I DID NOT RIDE
Finally, after we've zipped, surged, and banged, we sizzle on the sizzler. And being as it was still 95 outside, it was sizzling.
So there you have it, a look at Black Gold Days in Glenpool, Ok. Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned ove the next two weeks, a slury of reports cometh, including my Adventures in Oregon and Washington with Laura. You won't want to miss it!
My latest adventure took me to the Circus Circus AdventureDome in Las Vegas on 6/24/11. Crowds were non existant, everything was walkon at 10pm. With a hotel discount coupon you could get a ride wristband for about $20. As many of you know, this park is good to kill an hour or two, beyond that, mucho boring.
So no more rambling...
Welcome to the Adventuredome
Inside you find historic mountain ruins
And an up and down sling shot. When I rode back in October, I was totally expecting to be hoisted to the top then dropped. WRONG!
You're sprung wayyyy up to the top, then dropped.
Next up is my new favorite flat ride type, the Mega Dick-O
This Mega Dick-O has an insane and lenghy ride program
Mega Dick-O doing it's thing
