Kiddieland Photo TR

Postby Airtime&Gravity » Sun May 24, 2009 8:16 pm

Now, since no one reads these, I will just say that Kiddieland is a great little park, and if you have the chance, you should visit it before it closes. It really is a nice little park, and I hope it beats the odds and reopens in 2010.


Edit: pictures switched order from preview.

The top part of the sign since that's all I could get from inside the park since I couldn't take a good photo from the parking lot. (crowds and sun) Also, I think these children might be scarier than the hot dogs on top of Superdawg.

The theming on Log Jammer was really nice. It was about the level of Viper's station at SFGAM. Again, a surprise for such a little park. Next up, the final set of photos.

Love those evening shots, nice colours.

That Little Dipper looks too cute, maybe someone like Little Amerricka or Knoebels could rescue it if Kiddieland closes.

For a park called "Kiddieland," it seems to have its share of adult rides. It will be sad if this park closes :x

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

I was expecting a lot less, thank you for sharing this. Now I'm a lot sadder that the park is going to close. :(

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Why would Little Amerricka get the Little Dipper when they already have the Meteor which is a clone of it?

I was speaking figuratively, maybe I should have made that more obvious. I have been to Little Amerricka and ridden Meteor so I kind of do realise Meteor and Little Dipper are very similiar coasters.

I'm more hoping someone will pick up Little Dipper, it looks worth saving.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

It really is more of a family park as opposed to a kiddie park, and some of the adult rides had good cycles. The rides that I did ride, (not a single rider as I'm not that sad and pathetic) were a lot of fun, and some of the rides that I didn't (tilt-a-whirl) looked to have some intense cycles. Even the kiddie tea cups looked pretty intense for a kiddie ride. The Little Dipper was also a lot of fun despite being really small, and there were two moments when there was almost airtime.
