I’m sorry for the delay between posts. I was on vacation. It was nice to get away for a few days and unwind. But of course I came back with some great stories and pictures – as if I’d ever take a break from complaining…
Anyway, we had an out-of-town wedding, added a few days onto the back end of the trip and went to Idlewild in Pennsylvania. It’s a sister park of Kennywood. And I have to admit, it was so nice to go somewhere where the lines weren’t outrageous, the employees were nice and the environment was family-oriented. – things most amusement parks can’t accomplish these days.
However, in the same breath, an amusement park is an amusement park – so there’s always good people-watching to be done. And in this case, there were some pictures to be taken.
Wild Mouse – This classic roller coaster is always a crowd-pleaser – unless it breaks down. There were two kids stuck in this car for quite a while.
Smoking Areas – Most of the park was smoke-free, although there were people smoking in non-approved areas. But anyway, note the apparent princess wearing a crown in this picture.
Ringmaster – I’m always on the lookout for guys with mullets, strange hair and/or funny t-shirts. This guy met some of the qualifications obviously.
Preoccupied Mom – I often comment about “kids having kids.” Now, I’m not putting you down if your mom gave birth when she was younger or if you did. I’m more so talking about the issue in our society where kids think they need to have sex; they get stupid and end up getting pregnant. This girl was very young! And I actually felt bad for her as she tried to manage two strollers and the baby by herself. Note her “baby mama” shorts though.
What are some of your amusement park complaints?
