Postby Jeezus Juice » Sat Aug 13, 2005 8:38 pm

With nothing really to do this past week and seeing as I havn't been since march we decided to pop down to SoCal for a few days.

Heres some pictures:

Heres that picture of Revolution I always take. I actually got a really good ride on it. I learned how not to headbang!

Monica hit 500 at Disneyland on the new Space Mountain. This ride is awesome now, so much smoother.

The park was mercilessly crowded the whole week. Fastpasses we up to 8-9pm by 1pm! waits were around 65-90 minutes all day

We decided to beat the crowds and head off to Happy Ancient Egypt Land

This was our first time at Pharohs Lost Kingdom and I'd been meaning to go for a while. Heres the Vegas-esque arcade interior

9.99 for an all day midway pass. They have two coasters and a few flats

You have to get by Anubis to get to the rides. I appeased him by peeing on a hydrant and was granted access

There are also some pretty cool slides at this park, and it was Bloody hot too.

Heres the real reason we came, to Credit Whore!!!

After our 45minutes at PLK we went to the "good" riverside park. Enjoy!

Castle Park is my favorite place in Riverside! It was built by the guy responsible for the Log Ride and the Mine Train at Knotts.

They have the absolute best minigolf in CA.

Of course I'll absolutly killed both courses I played

The ride park is actually verywell done. Dare I say it is the best FEC park in the world!?
DSC03040.JPG
Yea! Molina and Sons goodness!
DSC03039.JPG
Monica had to practically drag me on this one...;)
DSC03041.JPG
The park has a pretty decent log flume too. Alot of themeing exists around the flume area too.

Ma and this knight kicked it for a while

Then we rode the Vekoma skater. They had loosened the end brake because the train was stalling outside the station. We ended up going about 12 times in a row because it then kept slpping right through the brake!

Monica got to sit next to Michael Moore. I wanted an autograph but he had to take off pretty quick.

Luckily Jesus was there working on the antique car ride.

Interesting
DSC03062.JPG
Yes! Awesome!!
DSC03063.JPG
Check out this handmade train. This is no CP Huntington, Thats real etched glass in the cars!
DSC03064.JPG
I really like this park, it's so much better than my local Scandia FEC.

I'll close with a shot of one of the holes. Look how similer the themeing is to the Log and Mine ride at Knotts. I love this park, they were open untill 11pm too. Unlimited rides, golf, and Video Games for only $14.99. I'm totally going back.

Great pictures! Castle Park is really good, esp. since it's the closest ride park to where i live :lol: How are the rides/coasters at Pharaohs and Scandia? We've been talking about taking a trip to check them out and was wondering if any of the rides are worth going for? Thanks! :D

These is a mini golf park in my area, it's not nearly as themed as that, but it has a volcano that shoots out fire.

I never knew it did that till the last time I ws there. I was standing next to it as it went off, it was really hot.
