Since Shannon's employer was offering a free "family day" at Lake Winnie, complete with picnic lunch, we just couldn't resist. Free is always good, and the day turned out great. We arrived around 11 am, ate at one of the three thousand picninc pavilions onsite, and then headed out to the rides.
Not much has changed from years past, but the park has a newly paved parking area....well, sort of. Cannonball was running great in it's 40th anniversary year and the Fly-O-Planes were back in service! Ride ops were friendly and effecient, and the place was clean as always.
Enjoy the pics.
Newly paved parking area. Well, except for the spaces themselves. Still, a very welcome improvement.
The park's new entryway.
Uninspired "haunted" dark ride name. The effects weren't very special. Very campy, and good for a laugh.
The high tech ride vehicles.
What makes Joe happy?
Well, besides headless penguins, kiddie credits of course!
Extreme wacky worm pov for Joe who wasn't actually here this day.
Joe's right, kiddie credits are fun for everyone!!!
There was a battle of the bands competition being held there on this day. High school bands from GA and neighboring states made me long for a beer and a football game.
Cannon Ball pov. She still runs great!
Fly-O-Planes are back!!
And one more to drive the point home.
Lame bumper cars.
Chair lift over lake.
Anyone know why this place is named Lake Winnie?
Boat chute. If I'm correct, this is the only one of its kind in America, and is 80 years old this year. Happy birthday Boat Chute.
Pov of said swings.
Naturally, you have to hit the slide on the way out.
And a lap around the park for good measure.
Which looks like this at that particular moment in time when the photo was snapped. ;)

Wow, the new entry way look very nice. Much nicer than the last time I was there in 2003, when it was pretty much just two little ticket booths with a banner over them! I've already promised myself a trip to Lake Winnie this year, and this TR makes me think that it may be sooner than later!
Current coaster count : 223 waterviper [1:08am]: jahan i know you 17 and all but I think your one great piece of A$$
arrowfanman [1:36am]: Good...now we have the trifecta of ass-wanting!
Those slides are dangerous. Seriously. One time I was at American Adventures and the slide was extra fast that day. Many people were catching a little bit of air on the last hump so I decided I would do it. When I got to that hump I must have subconsiously tried to get more air by lifting my but right when I crested the hump, which in turn made me catch about a foot of air off of the slide and land right on my tail bone on the divider between the two lanes. It hurt so bad, that for about a week I could not bend down.
