So someone wanted a little whoring for the third wish that I was granting, so, here it is
This is Kiddieland in Pittsburg Kansas. Kiddieland is located inside Lincoln park where you can find a golf course, putt putt golf, and other park type things you would expect. I haven't located too much info on the park, but the gentleman who runs it absolutely adored the kids that were there and treated them all as if they were his grandchildren. (Yes, he was older) Looked as if he only had one employee and they rotated operations of the handful of rides on property.
So, without further talk, here is a very short whorish report.
Here we are, ready to whore.
But first, lets take a quick look around.
I couldn't fit :(
These were some old school 40's rides
And a do it yourself ride
Do you like to do it youself? Well, on this train, you can't.
Hmmm, what is that back there?
Why yes, yes it is! It's a NERD SHOT!
Oh yeah, and a kiddie credit. So no, I won't show the picture of me riding it. Sorry. Not gonna happen. Cost me $1.50 to get spun around about 10 times. The old man was having a blast with the kidos that were there.
You know, it really was a neat, very small park in a small town that just was peaceful. Who knows, maybe one day I'll settle down in a small town, but just not anytime soon!
Ahem. Chadster, I requested a trip report of this place with the expectation that I would see photographic evidence of you sinking low in your whoring endeavors. Track layouts can viewed anytime. But watching you wallow in the dark side of this hobby, whoring yourself out and doing the dirty work of credit collecting is what we wanted to see.
Okay, actually, in all seriousness, thank you very much for posting this. I requested it because I was planning on stopping there myself this summer (until life events happened and I moved halfway across the country instead) and wanted to see what I missed. This place looks amazing. There were a few ride models I've never seen before (like the planes in the second photo down and those do-it-yourself cars) and it is really neat to see that such rare rides are still preserved and in working order. It's like a step back in time.
So now I'm wondering: will we get to see the rest of your Colorado adventures soon?
While I still refuse to post that onride photo of me, I will say that had someone chosen the Jersey Shore Whore option, I would have gladly posted multiple pictures of myself whoring, but since no one did, you guys may or may not ever see it
^ Eventually, yes! I will run a little wish granting contest again this weekend with more options, so stay tuned, wish granting will continue next week, there *might* even be a VTR option...just sayin'

So here it is, the awesome, the amazing, the epic Deep South Bash trip report! First of all I would like to thank everyone at Six Flags who worked to put on an event that, in my opinion, showed up their sister park, Magic Mountain. Their hospitality was over the top with Melinda, the parks President, stopping to chat with us while she was out walking in the park.
Mindbender still beats Shockwave. Dare Devil Dive I thought to be a little tame versus what I was hoping it was to be, but is still a solid ride that is packing the public in with 2 hour waits. The ride crew on DDD was on their game pushing trains out as fast as the GP would let them. While I'm not a total fan of fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo, this is a ride they may want to consider it on as the ops spent most of their time trying to get people to put their crap up.
Overall, this is one event I would love to see happen again next year. The time of year brought lighter GP crowds and the weather was awesome! If you didn't attend this event, you missed out!
This will be a longer Photo TR than I would normally do because this place was so awesome and we all had such a good time. I'll start off with the Haunted Mansion tour! Yes, we got to walk up into the scenery and get personal with the animatronics!
Oh, and if you are in any of these photos and would like an original fully watermarked copy for your collection, message me with your e-mail address and I will send it to you!
Up before the sun to attend one of the best TPR events of the year!
The park teased us the night before with Goliath, and they continued to tease us as they added the trains and tested.
These guys are all lined up to get their tickets at the ticket booth.
From the parks newest employee!
The gathering of the geeks.
Robb just asked eveyone if they would like FREE BEER and wine. Looks like majority rules.
"This lanyard has magical powers, is very durable, and if you lose it, no FREE BEER or ERT for you!"
The pearly gates have opened and everyone is running to the breakfast table
Good gravy people!
NERD!! Oh. Wait. That's ME! And thanks to Jake for the assist on the photo!
So after my #400 on DDD, we made our way to a Club TPR Exclusive.
A walk-thru tour of Haunted Mansion! Membership has its privy's
In we go thru the rear entrance
They let us walk anywhere we wanted as long as we didn't cross over. As you can see the ride was drained, but they had all of the effects turned on.
So, since everyone gave me so much crap about not floating through the mansion back in May, I not only rode it twice, but also walked thru it, so there. :p
You float from this way. I think. Basically we entered just after the photo op at the front of the ride.
The middle dude was yanking on the front dudes pants trying put something long and round inside.
This is a really tripped up ride.
This is where we took that group photo posted on the offical DSB thread.
My, what a big tounge you have
We are all still taking it in, trying to figure out who dreams this stuff up.
Open wide and say ahhhhhhh
We got up close and personal with this attraction. But not near as up close and personal as R.D. did with Mindbender. Want to see how close, come back for the next part to see.
This is where you turn and go into the creepy part.
This dragon thingy...
is controlled by all this
Boat lift used to lift boats that are dropped off and pulled out behind those black doors. Yeah, true backstage tour.
We went through the door and walked in here.
This is the crew that sings the monster anthem
Bye! But wait. There's more!
This is the reservoir for Monster Mansion
This boat was too scared to enter the mansion.
Out the back of the Mansion we found Goliath waiting for us!
Bunch of TPR members, I mean dummies.
But not for us! The tour of Monster Mansion was Epic, but the park was just getting started! Part II coming soon where we will have some lunch, go on a photo walk back of the entire park, and more!

The second train was undergoing some renovations. As a result, the line for mindbender was upwards of 90 minutes.
Through the trees!
Did I mention we got close, close enough to reach out and touch someone!
Loopy! Full of force, full of awesome.
Transfer nerd shot!
Rudie giving this oh sh!t section of the transfer track a complete inspection.
Make love to it!
That's the look of a man who is satisifed. Oddly enough, he had to burn one off afterwards.
This yellow thing makes Mindbender go vroom
They were adding boats to the rapids. I must say, this is one of the better rapids rides I've been on. It got us wet, forceful, and fun!
Arrow log time! I think this was the third one built.
I wasn't going to ride Georgia Cyclone, but Sam talked me into it. We hit it in the magic seat and it wasn't too bad. But some of the expressions on these people faces tell me they had worse seats than we did.
Arco was up and running, the park made good on their promise to try and get it up for us, and they delivered!
So it was TPR Quest and FREE BEER time, we had singing, we had theft, we had fried pies and beer, and we had...
This quest business is really screwed up. Want to know how screwed up? You gotta show up!
So quest was over, the park handed out goodie bags that put the icing on a cake that was already iced. Full of awesome stuff. I can't thank them enough for all they did for us!
Now it was time for evening ERT! Ninja looks so good, but is sooo bad. Actually with the arrow trains, it rides pretty good.
So we practiced for the water challenge.
Empty? Go figure. Water challenge was awesome, we all got soaked, Robb was dumping water on people, but later got dumped on by Brad (Six Flags guru who set this whole thing up), but most important, we had fun!
What, that's all? Yep, that's all folks!
Hope you enjoyed reading as much as I did at the park. Next time, join us!
