Little Amerricka Part 1.

As you may or may not know, Little Amerricka purchased the cars, lift, drop and turn of Kiddielands log flume. They are hoping to have it up by 2011. Right now the parts are sitting where the Lady Gay used to be. Yep used to. The Lady Gay is gone :( Anyway these log flume parts where not in a restricted area, we didn't jump any fences, we didn't break into anything, they are sitting by the parking lot and the park has no problem with people going to look at them. Now enough boring talk, onto the pictures!

Hmmm wheres the Lady Gay?!? And what are those things in her spot?!?

Lets go for a closer look.

Lets go in for an even closer look!

Yep, these came from Kiddieland! I think there were nine cars, might be wrong though, so dont quote me on it!
CIMG1774.JPG
A piece of track! There arent too many of these because at Kiddieland it was built into the ground, so LA only bought parts that were elevated.

I think we need to start a Facebook group to help bring back the Lady Gay. I wonder where she went?

Why was the Lady Gay there in the first place? Was it a ride or something?

I honestly have no clue why it was there. Perhaps it was a ride when the park first opened.

Side note if anyone wants a Little Amerricka brochure check out my post here.

EDIT:

Little Amerricka Amusement Park We are still in planning stages for where to put the log flume. As far as the structure, most of the ride was poured concrete so we will most likely approach it the same way. The steamboat that was in the back of the park was sold to a third party.

This part is all about the Mad Mouse coaster! The coaster has no restraints so it can make for some interesting and rough rides.

The height chart is new. It used to be a mouse.

The cars also got new foam, it used to be orange

Brake run

One big rough turn around

I got my mom to ride it. She said she didn't like it but I think she had fun!
CIMG1686.JPG
CIMG1688.JPG
Jeremie loved it!

I must be going insane because I think it feels like the car tilts on those turns!

He seems calm, but he just got just beat by airtime!
CIMG1802.JPG
The other Allan H coaster is the Little Dipper kiddie coaster. It can also give you a beating
CIMG1805.JPG
The lift sounds weird
CIMG1806.JPG
Not the best site to see at the top of a lift...
CIMG1808.JPG
They may be small...but they will kick your @$$!
CIMG1809.JPG
Look at Jo being smart and not riding! That's it for this update!

Foam noodles, FTW. It's a shame that I haven't visited this park before considering I don't live very far away. I want them to put up that log flume already! Nice report, this seems like a nice park! =)

The log flume won't be up until 2011 since they are taking Kiddielands approach and having all the track dug underground.

Little Amerricka also has two other rolly coasters! One is wood and one is steel, and yes the steel one is much rougher than the wood one. Even though all their steel coasters are pretty janky, no other park in Wi has three steel coasters, and I'd take theres over Mt. O's steel coasters any day! Anyway, onto the pictures!

Well Robb and Casey could handle it...
CIMG1689.JPG
Not very friendly to men...
CIMG1693.JPG
You can see it from everywhere, it just sits there, laughing at you for the pain it will give you
CIMG1709.JPG
Even when your on the good coaster you cant escape it
CIMG1871.JPG
It does look cool though
CIMG1874.JPG
Its the first thing you see pulling into the park
CIMG1882.JPG
The vertical lift is fun though, now enough with the death coasters, onto Meteor!
CIMG1683.JPG
Such a nice thing to see walking into the park
CIMG1693.JPG
Overview. Its a mirror image of SFGAMs Little Dipper, but we all thought it was much better than LD!
CIMG1708.JPG
I love the sound of its lift!
CIMG1709.JPG
The first turn around. You may have saw that I already used this photo, that is because it works for two different things! Isn't that neat?!
CIMG1710.JPG
The drop is actually really good! And oh so smooth!
CIMG1711.JPG
Gavin and Jeremie loved it! And look at all the padding on those cars, its like riding in a sofa!
CIMG1712.JPG
And yes the parks General Manager gave us permission to take on ride pictures!
CIMG1713.JPG
The final dip! Can't get enough?!? Dont worry you get three more laps! (and check out those skid brakes!)
CIMG1718.JPG
CIMG1719.JPG
Double down! Weee!
CIMG1726.JPG
You may ask, how is this a Meteor photo? Look at Jo's sun glasses. Yep, Meteor track. Also the parachute tower looks a lot like a 2nd Gen Intamin drop tower.
CIMG1728.JPG
Everybody loves Meteor!
CIMG1810.JPG
See?!? Everybody!
CIMG1847.JPG
Thats all for this part!

I think Meteor has more time to break in than Little Dipper. Nice report Jon!

I like Gavin's gloves, just wanted to say that.
