Re: Chadster's 2011 Trip Diary - Remlinger

So after a few hours of sleep we were off to Remlinger Farms. On the way down, we swore my GPS was telling us to continue on Dildo road, still not sure what road we were supposed to be on, so we will go with dildo road.

Today would be a credit run only, admission was a few dollars cheaper than expected at $11, so this would also officially be one of the top 3 most expensive credits for me to date.

Laura waited outside the farm so no ride photographer, but thought I would quickly share my whoring experience.

Yep, here we are, just off dildo road.

A quick stop on the way to the coaster to say hi to the Chief.

And here I am at the main attraction.

ACEr's take note!

Here's the station.

And the course.

So there it is. Plain. Simple. Whorish.

Next up, Wild Zamperla Waves!

After my whoring, and in an effort to save some coin, we made our way to Safeway to purchase discount tickets for Wild Waves. Well, as we found out, not all Safeway stores in the area sell them, so, we ended up going to two stores saving about $25. So, if you're going to Wild Waves, make sure you check that the Safeway store you are going to has the discounted tickets ;)

So this 27th day of July was spitting rain off and which assisted in keeping the crowds away. With fours coasters, I found Timberhawk: Ride of Prey to not only be the best the park has, but it's pretty darn good too! It didn't beat you up, had some nice surprises of air and a layout that kept me interested. Coming in second for me was Wild Thing, with automatic double rides for everyone, our first two cycles weren't too bad, the last two cycles we had slapped us around a bit, but still, it's not a bad ride, just not a top tier ride.

One thing we found really funny happened at the Klondike Gold Rusher. Basically two cars out of three running, the line was about 50 people deep which equalled about a twenty minute wait. Why was the wait that long? Well, anytime someone loses something on the ride, the ride is closed, a mechanic is called, the item is retrieved, and the ride reopens. The mechanic had just retrieved a hat and someone lost their flip flop on the platform. Back comes the mechanic, gets the shoe. Then you were instructed to hold the bar at all times, even on the lift. Don't even think about removing your hands from that bar. If you remove your hands from the bar, they will "talk" to you when you get back. Mouth off to them a little bit (note: did not mouth off to them, a group of people did) they will call security on you. The best part, security told the ride ops to basically get over it, lmao!

As far as food goes we grabbed a couple of personal sized pizzas and I have to say, they were pretty tasty and fresh out of the oven!

So if you want a good laugh, decent food, and loads of Zamperla goodness, head to Wild Waves.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 002.JPG
Welcome to Wild Waves, here we have the, wait for it, wait for it, Wave Pool!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 003.JPG
Here we have a food outlet...
Wild Waves 6.26.11 004.JPG
A park map...
Wild Waves 6.26.11 005.JPG
and an ACEr.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 007.JPG
The water park looked nice, had about everything you'd want in a water park, slides, river, wave pool, and a new toilet bowl. But at 70 degrees, I'll pass.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 008.JPG
Across the pond we find rides!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 011.JPG
Shirts are optional, yay!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 012.JPG
Shooting whales.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 030.JPG
So for our first credit of the day, a powered kiddie coaster!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 014.JPG
This little ride kicked some serious ass, and dare I say it, was kinda fun!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 019.JPG
Next we headed to the Zamperla "better hold on to the bar or else" wild mouse thing.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 018.JPG
The girls running this ride got the award for worst ride ops of the park. SLOW!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 020.JPG
Nerd Shot!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 028.JPG
On the way into the park, Laura mentioned she wanted to ride the Kangaroos, I was all for it, unfortunatley it was in several pieces. Lucky for us, they got it put back together, minus about half the seats. I blame ACE for exceeding the weight limit.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 031.JPG
Laura was ready to box some ears!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 033.JPG
Next up, we headed to Wild Thing. And for you lift hill motor nerds, this shot's for you!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 035.JPG
Wallking up the stairs to the station, we found people working on the new toilet bowl.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 037.JPG
But about 3pm, the workers were done. Gotta love bankers hours.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 045.JPG
Anyway, back to the coaster. Any guess as to who these two are?
Wild Waves 6.26.11 038.JPG
Scenic view through the coaster spying on the water park.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 041.JPG
Scenic view with a coaster train in the way.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 047.JPG
After lunch, we walked by the pond. Ever heard the term flop like a fish, well, i think this is where the phrase was invented.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 055.JPG
So we grabbed some fish food and teased them a bit. The ducks were walking all over the fish, some stepping in the hungry mouths, others just trying to get the hell away!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 048.JPG
Feeding the fish was easily the most fun we had in the park.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 057.JPG
Next we headed to this pissed off looking thing.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 058.JPG
This pus was actually really well themed, and the best part, double rides!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 060.JPG
How about a classic carousel?
Wild Waves 6.26.11 062.JPG
Wild Waves 6.26.11 063.JPG
Laura was excited to ride again
Wild Waves 6.26.11 065.JPG
Next up, the woodie!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 066.JPG
Given the quality of the rest of the parks coasters, this was a welcome attraction. Ran great, airtime, sharp turns, it has it all. And, it had the longest line in the park. But, since we like it in the rear, the wait time was much less, three trains at most.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 068.JPG
In Washington, this sign means, put your crap here.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 070.JPG
Bend Over.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 072.JPG
The park even has homeless people!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 073.JPG
Laura the Lumberjack.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 077.JPG
Ok, so we laughed at these tea cup looking things at first. Then we decided to ride. Looks innocent, but VERY NAUGHTY!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 076.JPG
Super fast spinning, everyone should ride this!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 078.JPG
Over in the enchanted village the dragon grabbed hold of Laura. NAUGHTY DRAGON, give her back!
Wild Waves 6.26.11 084.JPG
See, we are in the enchanted village.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 083.JPG
But what do I see back here?
Wild Waves 6.26.11 081.JPG
Best.Scrambler.Ever. Full power from the start, lots of banging, good motion, and a happy ending. What more could you want?
Wild Waves 6.26.11 085.JPG
So I tried to yank on my sword, but I was apparently doing it wrong
Wild Waves 6.26.11 086.JPG
So Laura gave it a shot, but it wasn't going to pop
Wild Waves 6.26.11 089.JPG
So we ended up on the Ring of Fire. Overall, good carnival ride.
Wild Waves 6.26.11 088.JPG
I'm a pleasure seeker! This park just redeemed itself!

So that was the end of our day at Wild Waves. Not a great park, put a park nonetheless. Glad I went, we both turned it into a fun time.

On the way back to Portland...
Wild Waves 6.26.11 090.JPG
we drove thru downtown Tacoma. And found this. WTF??? A kid with adult toys?

On the morning of June 28th we made our way to what I would say the most screwed up park ever, Enchanted Forest. This is one of those parks that has you asking yourself, WTF were they smoking? Normally I would give a brief narrative of the park, but this time, I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves.
Enchanted Forest 105 (2).JPG
So here we are at Enchanted Forest. During the week, the park is dead. When we arrived, I really wasn't sure if they were even open!
Enchanted Forest 001 (2).JPG
The main entrance. My mind was instantly in overload with WTF being the main thought.
Enchanted Forest 002 (2).JPG
When we walked in we headed to the right to check out the walk thru attractions.
Enchanted Forest 004 (2).JPG
I didn't know Michael Jackson had a place here...
Enchanted Forest 007 (2).JPG
So we walked past the indoor water show and made our way to the gravitron. This was actually really cool!
Enchanted Forest 009 (2).JPG
But when I turned around I was freaked out a bit by these characters.
Enchanted Forest 010 (2).JPG
Glory hole?
Enchanted Forest 013 (2).JPG
Hey, Pony Express, THIS is MY Teepee!
Enchanted Forest 016 (2).JPG
This road takes you back toward the flume coaster and dark ride shooting attraction. Which btw we rode three times, I had best scroe two out of three...just sayin'
Enchanted Forest 019 (2).JPG
Laura will neither confirm nor deny that I'm storing Big Timber.
Enchanted Forest 024 (2).JPG
One of the many scenes that you walk by.
Enchanted Forest 025 (2).JPG
Enchanted Forest 026 (2).JPG
Dr. U R Hurtin, almost as good as Dr. Drill 'em Hard.
Enchanted Forest 029 (2).JPG
Two things stand out on the rules. 1. No High Heel Shoes, and 2. Parents, you are responsible for your children. Imagine that.
Enchanted Forest 030 (2).JPG
After walking thru the scenes, we went to walk around Storybook Lane.
Enchanted Forest 031 (2).JPG
Look Chris! Turtle!

And with that, I conclude Part I of Enchanted Forest, more to come soon!

Enchanted Forest 049 (2).JPG
So Laura said she had to go to the bathroom, and I was like ok, and went to find somewhere to sit down...
Enchanted Forest 050 (2).JPG
As I was trying to find that place to sit, she called out to me to join her. I was like OK!
Enchanted Forest 052 (2).JPG
I really thought it was an outdoor bathroom like at the lake. FAIL! It was a maze!
Enchanted Forest 053 (2).JPG
Enchanted Forest 054 (2).JPG
Yes I am!
Enchanted Forest 056 (2).JPG
Enchanted Forest 057 (2).JPG

Enchanted Forest 097 (2).JPG
Two people in this Photo TR rode the hopper
Enchanted Forest 098 (2).JPG
Yay! Ice Mountain Bobsled time!!
Enchanted Forest 103 (2).JPG
This was a good ride, cheesy, but good, I would suggest riding it!
Enchanted Forest 093 (2).JPG
And rode it we did!
Enchanted Forest 094 (2).JPG
7 times in fact, breaking Laura's previous six times in a visit record!

So there you have it folks, a tour of a jacked up place. But you know what, we had tons of fun. The staff were laughing at us, I assume because of us being adults in a park geared towards kids, but we didn't care! But they were friendly and rides in good working order, can't ask for much more than that!

So after we left the forest, we drove next door and took a look at some remains.
Enchanted Forest 109 (2).JPG
We went next door to Thrill-Ville, or, what was left of it.
Enchanted Forest 110 (2).JPG
The old slides. Laura said when the park was operating they made sure that people knew they were NOT affiliated with Enchanted Forest, LMAO!
Enchanted Forest 118 (2).JPG
Rock o Plane. The only ride left semi standing.
Enchanted Forest 122 (2).JPG
Enchanted Forest 123 (2).JPG
Enchanted Forest 127 (2).JPG
Enchanted Forest 130 (2).JPG
Enchanted Forest 134 (2).JPG
The go cart track sat silent, the crane had taken the coaster down, and the slide was dry.

Well folks, that concludes the multi-park three state, four day tour! I hope you enjoyed following along, but I bet I had way more fun experiencing it! Stay tuned, more parks, more fun, more flags coming soon!

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

Agreed, the Tip Top (Tea Cups) at Wild Waves spin like crazy. However a trip report with Enchanted Forest and no a mention of Challenge of Mondor is LAME!
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!
