So my buddy just moved to the LA county and I'd figure I'd show him the sites and sounds that is wonderful smuggy Los Angeles County.
First off, we started at Scandia Amusement Park in Ontario. When we arrived, no one was there except maintenance guys that were putting the Halloween maze together. We walked around the park, tempted to operate our own rides. Then, these nice ride ops showed up and followed us around lettin gus any ride we wanted. In order to ride the Screamer we had to have 4 people to ride it so we convinced 2 ride ops to ride it with us so we could get our credit.
Next was Castle Park, even though the website said two days earlier that it would be open, it was closed. After having a chat with the people that own Castle Park, no joke, and trying to pay them off to turn on a ride for us...they kicked us out. No credits from this park today.
Then there was Adventure City, where we convinced the ticket lady we were ACE members (even though I was wearing a TPR shirt) to let us in the park. Adventure City is geared toward kids so you had to have a kid to enter...but since we were members of ACE we got a discount and got to go in.
Final Park of the day was Knott's...Knott's is Knott's so I'll let the pictures explain themselves for that park. Oh, and Xcelerator was broken and we walked on every ride and got to marathon Sivler Bullet for 8 straight rides.
The next morning I hit up Pacific Park cuz I was close to it.
Ok, enough blah blah blah so here's the pics and enjoy...
What's that out in the middle of no where? A coaster?
Whore #1 and Whore #2 ready to get their credits on
Scandia, where our ride ops ride the rides WITH you
Ok, so where is everyone?
I think the wait is too long, I'm gunna skip this ride
YAY! Credit Number 1 of the day...and we nearly broke it. It started going backwards on the lift hill.....ooops
Scrambler!! And I'm the only one on it!!! Party!!!
Doug decided to ride a dragon...while I pointed and laughed
It's like Dumbo and Disneyland...but not
Yay, waiting in the station of the Screamer for other ride ops to get in and ride it with us
Lift hill enthusiasts...get the lotion
So we decided to ride again and then we noticed this big, gaping hole in the track...oh god
Please nuts and bolts stay together!!
First drop!!! This was a very impressive coaster for where it is...
And look at the view....you can't get that on any other coaster in Ontario
Yay, I'm on the tallest coaster in Ontario next to the I-15 freeway! Beat that!
After the Screamer it was Pirate Ship time...Doug smelled so I sat as far away from him as possible
Merry-Go-Round time, and we even got a ride op to ride it with us
That's Desirea spraying the slide with silicon and Nicole telling Doug that he's gunna lose...Let's just say that we FLEW down the slides and hit the bricks at the end. AWESOME!
Thanks to Desirea, Nicole (not pictured), and Vicky for having to put up with us for the short but great time we were there.
Next, was Castle Park in Riverside. From here it looks like it's open
Again, upon walking in no one is in the park and all we see are guys fixing rides...those are called maintanence people
So after talking with the owners and trying to pay them off to turn on a ride they kick us out, 2 missed credits and here's one, Merlin's Revenge
Castle Park, where we disappoint all the credit whores when we're closed
Bye Castle Park, update your website so that your open where your website says you are
So we had some time to kill and Doug's never been to In-N-Out
So I introduce him to a heart attack in a little brown cardboard box
To quote Ricky Bobby, "If you don't like Big Red, then f**k you"
Ghostrider wasn't too bad this time around. I have been on rides where I could only ride it once cuz it felt like I broke a rib. This time we sat in the very front and the middle and the middle is the best place to be. The back, even though the drops are crazy back there, just beats you around like a little rag doll...Here's a hint, dont put your hands in the air...just hold on for shear shakiness
The first drop is the only part of it thats just a little wee too much. With the retracking, you actually feel air time on the hills, although the job they did was still some of the crappiest I've ever seen.
