One last set of Central Park pics.
Ch 6 32.jpg
But around the corner from the "Telling Witch" was something we Americans could understand--guns!
Ch 6 33.jpg
You talkin' to me? Ain't nobody else here!
Ch 6 34.jpg
We proudly accept the rank of Silver Chieftain!
Ch 6 35.jpg
Then assume the position--for we are Diamond Lords!
Ch 6 36.jpg
As you can see, the weather was still pretty good when we left Central Park.
Ch 6 37.jpg
Hey, when did LAX put in a water park? Oh, wait, this is Tegarayama Ruen.
Ch 6 38.jpg
They had shut down all the coasters due to rain, but I'm thinking this one has been out of commission for quite some time.
Ch 6 39.jpg
This picture really sums up the Tegarayama Ruen experience.
Ch 6 40.jpg
But, yay! We're going to get a credit for me! Tivoli to come later today.

^I suppose so. Don't mess with Ginny! :)

I actually wanted to be a "Traci Lord," not a "Diamond Lord." :)

I loved Tivoli! I wish that we could have spent more time there. If only we hadn't stopped by the ghetto Ruen park first! Oh well, who would have known they close when a few sprinkles fall from the sky? Why, I have never heard of a park doing that! For shame! What, you say Knott's does it? Aw, crap! :lmao:

Hi Chuck,
Great TR! I also loved the Ultraman sim. After that ride, I was satisfied enough to simply take on the park's beautiful landscape. Poo on the typhoon (my 3rd typhoon/hurricane I missed this year; the 1st was on the island of Guam and the 2nd back home in Hawaii).
