Because it was cool out today, Sue and I went driving. We went to Disney World to check out Fort Wilderness and see where we have to go on Monday when we will camp there for a few days. We will save the pictures of that until we arrive there on Monday.
Based on what I read this is how the Vomotron came to be. In the 1960's President Kennedy set NASA a task to put the first man on the moon. The astronauts had to undergo a vigorous training program to prepare them for the rigors of outer space. NASA built machines which placed the astronauts bodies under extreme pressure. The force exerted on them could literally blow your mind.
The astronauts coped well with most machines, however there was one machine which struck terror in to all their hearts. This machine! In 2003 this park was tasked with finding a machine to scare the hell out of its customers so the Vomotron was put into service. It is 200 ft. high and you reach speeds of up to 70 mph going forwards and then backwards. Ride it if you dare. I would love to be able to ride it!!
The other ride we saw was the sling shot. I didn't get much of a picture of it but if you look under the flag, there is the seat thingy with a couple screaming people in it. Wow was it high!!
They tried to convince us that even us old folk could handle it, but no way Jose!!
We had a fun day and ended it in Brian's new screen tent for a get together. It was nice in there with the flaps closed to keep out the cool breeze, and there was room for 8 or 10 people at a time.
The view out our window shows lots of hunters across the road from us. The hunters move in for the weekends and then they all leave on Sunday afternoon, I guess so they can go back to work.
Those food prices sounded reasonable.ReplyDelete
We realized a few years ago we can't do the amusement rides like we used to. Good Luck trying.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
You won't catch me on those rides!!!ReplyDelete
