We went to Gilroy Gardens on 4/13. It has been a couple of years since we have been there. They have done a terrific job here. The place is clean, well themed, and maintained. It was extremely hot today also.
They have a kiddie coaster and another one that turned out to be pretty decent.
Here are the photos...of coasters and amusement parks, this time!!!
Hooray! We're here
This guy with the back-pack was claiming all he had was food for his kids. The bottom of the bag was filled with waters! There is a sign that says not outside food or drink. Why do people even try?
You walk across this bridge to enter the park. They had a guy taking a survey that walked with us.
Funny, they have a Spring Fling event going on too.
Hi Gyendolynne. Are you enjoying your birthday weekend?
Here's my horse.
I think he is saying, "hey fatty, get off!!!"
Ooooh, first credit. I am sure Big Mike will see this soon enough.
The theming for the walk-way and for the ride are really cool.
Why would anyone want to take the long way around???
A neat thing about the area is the soundtrack. They have chainsaws and trees being cut down.
Hey snake, you look awfully familiar. Didn't I see you at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom? Rich, does this count as a credit?
Beware of the tail...
We're on it...
Did I mention that we had ERT at Gilroy Gardens too?
Some neat rides and theming photos coming. I don't think captions are needed.
Swan paddle boat rides...
They look like they are a little off course.
The park is educational too...
Time for some more ERT.
Like I said, the crowds were un-bearable yesterday.
Back of the train.
Up the lift hill...
Up the second lift hill. Yes, a second lift hill.
This tree was transplanted from Scotts Valley.
Sorry, if you buy it here, you gotta drink it here.
A couple more photos of Quicksilver Express.
Scott, they have a monorail!!!
It just doesn't seem like the same one you like so much though.
Nope, definitely not the same one. This monorail goes inside a greenhouse.
It was so friggin' hot in here!
Some more random park photos coming up.
They have a great train that goes around the whole park.
Sorry folks, the falls are closed. Shouldn't this say "Gilroy Gardens" ??
No one got lost in here today.
This duck wanted our food.
Don't you want some artichoke hearts?
This is one of the many falls throughout the Gardens.
