This is a great idea!!!

I buy postcards at every park I can since they are cheap and easily transportable. (although this also means we have about 3-4 plastic bins full of them now!!!LOL!)
Got Yeti? Expedition Everest does...

Ok everyone gather round. It's time for postcard #2, and this week's feature is from where I refer to as my home park, Beech Bend Park & Splash Lagoon, located in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky. The park is located about an hour north of me, but since Opryland's demise I have adopted Beech Bend as my home park. While some would view the park as nothing more than a bunch of portable flat rides and a dragstrip, Beech Bend has had quite an interesting history since it began in 1880, even having been under ownership involving country music star, Ronnie Milsap. Ever since the Dallas Jones family acquired the park in 1987, Beech Bend has been on the upswing...thankfully! The park has some of my favorite rides like the Scat II, Kentucky Rumbler, the cheesy but historic Pretzel ride-through Haunted House, and quite possibly the best drop tower ever - Shock Drop!

This week we jump across the Pacific Ocean from Bowling Green to Tokyo and catch up with the TPR Asia trip for a visit to Tokyo Dome City! As you can see on the front of the card the giant dome is in the left foreground while there on the right is LaQua Park with Thunder Dolphin, and it's all located right in the heart of the city. I love how they do that in Japan.

I think for most of us on the TPR Japan trip in '07, Thunder Dophin was a bit of a letdown. It looks so good yet doesn't do a whole lot after the first drop. I still found it to be fun though! The ride ops basically give you a strip search before they'll let you ride it, and then they all do a little cheer in unison before hitting the go button. The park also features the "Big O" hubless Ferris wheel, an Intamin parachute drop, Geo Panic -a really messed up indoor coaster, and a $40 giant hamburger!

Ahh, good and cheap souvenirs! Buttons, Magnets, and Postcards are great choices and travel well. Also great references to parks and rides no longer around.

You just carved your niche here, friend. Well done!
