Unfortunately due to production delays I am unable to bring you a Video Trip Report to kick off the 2012 season of CVA, however I am proud to bring you this little jewel.

Found by Fatdaddy in a KMART parking lot during a recent visit was a ghetto carnival feature "Captain America", a Miler kiddie coaster. How ghetto was this place, well, we are talking ghetto. Duct tape was holding the gravitron together, a crank handle was used for the lift chain on the coaster, and the trabant about killed us.

So we walk up to the entrance where we had to pay $2 to get in. Wanting to know ride prices before we entered we asked the lady how many coupons for the coaster, no speak English, and held up a sign telling us how much tickets were. Um yeah. So, we go inside, look around, and none of the rides said how many tickets. Apparently it's at the ride operators discretion, if you are white, 5 tickets, if you speak Spanish, 4 tickets.

Anyway, here are a few interesting photos and a bonus credit! It was unexpected.

Kmart. Right Here. Right Now

Shamrock stands for luck, as in, good luck, you're going to need it on our rides.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 054.JPG
Duct tape fixes everything.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 023.JPG
Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, eh, oh, wrong park.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 056.JPG
Wheel of fortune, but enough of that. Lets get to the bonus credit, and then get the hell out. This place is not in the best part of town.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 002.JPG
Here it is, the crown jewel, the one, the only, CAPTAIN AMERICA!
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 010.JPG
We were assured that this attraction meets all IP licensing requirements.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 005.JPG
You know it's ghetto when the gas station car wash is next to the coaster.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 024.JPG
"My wife wished I would die, I just might on this ride!"

The lift.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 029.JPG
A circus monkey comes out and cranks the handle for the lift chain. True Story.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 038.JPG
And off we go. I called my insurance agent before we embarked on this journey, wanted to make sure mom and dad would be set. You know, just in case.

So for you nerds, here it is.

Since I am a himalaya fanatic, had to try it out. Not bad for almost shaking apart.

Then it was time to take a spin on the Trabant. Holly hell this thing was on kill.
Ghetto Riverside Kmart Carnival 052.JPG
They made you ride in pairs. Two fat@sses in a trabant made for an interesting ride, as you can tell, we were highly excited.

And before we get shot, it's time to get outta here. Police helicopters = bad news.

Hope you enjoyed this ghetto report. Much better, much bigger, much more excitement is on it's way this season! Check back next week for another installment of CVA!

Don't forget to comment!

That truly is the definition of "ghetto fair". I went to one similar in the parking lot of a Costco and got stuck on a Crazy Surf for 30 minutes.. fun time to be had at ghetto fairs. Look forward to seeing more

Wow.
G-E-T-O.

There are many things I will try/enjoy while out enjoying this planet, however, I draw the line if the rides are assembled with glue, toothpicks and duct tape.

Scary- but funny, too.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

Not to mention any time someone sets a Zipper up in a parking lot! Those thing are scary enough, let alone the ghetto factor thrown in!!!!

Ummmm....I'll pass thank you. :) Those ghetto fair rides make me nervous enough when they aren't in need of duct tape repairs. Looking forward to more!

I'm actually kind of surprised you and Caesar made it out alive. Cause that's actually kind of scary. But great report, and great whoring skills :)

If you wanna get a good Himalaya ride come over to one of our carnivals.

In the US they do all things wrong with them. Frist off they run them far too slow - and then all the "Dont rock the cars" and "Dont raise your arms" and "No sunglasses onride".

Image
This is the correct speed to handle such a ride - note how far the gondolas swing up!

The US has great coasters - but I always have to refrain myself on "commenting" to the ride-ops about their operations and rules as I dont wanna get kicked from the parks.... ;)
