Dutch Wonderland with Matt, Kevin and Emily
« on: December 11, 2008, 11:31:56 PM »
The day after CAD, I headed to Matt's place and met up with Kevin and Emily.
 
Then we headed to Lancaster County.

Here's the beef.

I think the milk will be off.

Do you think he takes unleaded?






Here is a cute pic of Kevin and Emily.

Emily thinks they look like tools. Is it the hoodies, going to Dutch Wonderland without a kid or that thumbs up Kevin is sporting?!/b]

and Matt makes a complete set.


I didn't get the hoodie memo.





Good Lord!



They have antique cars


a Flying Trapeze


and a Matt milking a cow.

Hope your hands are warm!

I had to.

Scaring little kids with loud noises is what I do.









Ok. We came for the coasters.


as opposed to sitting in the parking lot


watching the coaster, in the dormant winter


Here's the Joust


It's about a credit.


aboat a credit



They have lots of pretty gardens. Let's take a look...










They have a purple dinosaur


a Mad House




and a Space Shuttle.

 This shouldn't go upside.

Hey, it's no

Fly Me to the Moon












No wonder I've been eating pretzels while putting this together.

One more ride on the Kingdom Coaster.




It's a nice, smooth, fast-paced coaster. Its design is similar to Wild One, an out-and-back with a helix at the end. The front provided a better ride to me than the back, because it was faster and had some airtime. 

and off we went to the crazy bridge




Edited for your enjoyment

We went for the Halloween event and to be honest, it sucked.  But I have to say, the place looks totally different in the summer.  It's actually nice looking with greenery.

I guess we'll have to check it out again because the insane crowd levels made it possible to only get 3 or 4 rides in the whole day and one of those was the super slide!

Nice TR :)

Thanks Wade.

I think the crowds were light and sporadic. It was May 3rd and the forecast was rain. It's a nice looking park and very reminicent of Hershey.

They have twirling turtles.

Always wondered what dutch wonderland was all about. Seems neat and quirky, but probably not worth the $40 to get in. One day...

It is neat and quirky. I milked a cow there (it was water in a fake cow, but still...) 
But it's best served with a discounted admission. We paid $20 with our Hershey passes. The junior woodie is no Wooden Warrior, but a great family ride. And the spinning turtles tilt-a-whirl, the water bridge, and the sick 6 person Houdini ride.. Very charming place.

I think its about 35 bucks on top of the cheapest hershey price now a days.

Whats the deal with the simulator? I've heard its kind of a big deal.

I forget. Is there a simulator in addition to the Houdini style ride? The mini Houdini is a trip. Very disorienting. And potentially nausiating.

If you go, just don't let a random kid ride the coaster with you for 10 consecutive rides.

They have one of the only remaining Astroliners just like the one Clementon used to have. Unfortunately, it's now just using a really small LCD tv in place of the movie screen but it's still really awesome that they've kept it running!
