Photo TR: Sylvan Beach

Postby funkybadger » Wed Jun 20, 2007 10:11 pm

Well, the take over has begun! We're making our way across New York, destined to meet up with larrygator on Friday to spend some time with him before we leave for Spain.

In the meantime, we're jumping to every park and zoo we can find along the way. Today - Sylvan Beach!

Everytime some little park closes, we get pages and pages of people saying how sad it was that the park closed. But the reason those parks close is from lack of attendance.

Taking that advice to heart, we went a bit out of our way to visit Sylvan Beach, a park that truly harkens back to the simpler days of the amusement park. We were only there about an hour, spent about $20, and had a great time.

So next time we hear a sad story about a place like Joyland or Erieview closing, we'll at least feel like we've done our part to combat that happening by visiting little parks like these.

Ok, no more soapbox - on with the stupidity!!!

So here’s the entrance to Sylvan Beach . . the sign is elevated so you can see it from the lake.

And who knew? Sylvan Beach actually sits right on the beach! This is Oneida Lake – pretty!

Here's the ticket booth and the entrance to Laffland, a quirky old fashioned dark ride.

Oooh! Pay per ride tickets were on sale today! We got 10 for $9.50!

Cute kiddie area!

And on to the Galaxi for our credit!

YES! - it's Bargain Day! See, it pays to visit the small parks!

Old school teacups, baby! Lou? Larry? Any takers for some spin & hurl goodness?

Rich shows off his mad shooting skills - makes me swoon everytime!

Rich's hard work pays off in ... RED HOT TICKETS!
HPIM2881.JPG
OMG! Rich has been attacked by the Ticket Kraken!
HPIM2884.JPG
Thank goodness for this machine to tame those tentacles of tickets! Time to trade them in for the crappy loot!

And now it's time for "Bad Puns" with Melanie!! Can you figure out what this might be?
HPIM2895.JPG
Mmm . . .blueberry cheesecake ice cream is much better with vampire teeth! Actually, Melanie looks more like Brak from Space Ghost.

And one final shot of the town of Sylvan Beach. It's a quaint little lake town sitting right on Oneida Lake. Definitely worth a visit!

So Sylvan Beach was a great time. See you next time! We love you Mom! ~ Melanie & Rich

I love how the park sign doubles as a backboard for the super slide. Thanks for sharing, Brak! (Space Ghost has been alerted.)

That was awesome. Especially the Brak reference. And how did you eat blueberry ice cream, and yet keep your vampire teeth pearly white? That seems like it would be difficult.

Sucks that we'll be busy when you're in my area. Ah well, in a little over a week you'll be tired of me anyway.., :P
