Nearly Perfect Day, Part II

Scroll down to Part I (previous post) if you have not already read it.

We decided to watch this ride. Another that I chose to avoid.The name says it all. Zero Gravity No, won't be doing that, ever. It's fun to watch, though.

We took a leisurely ride on the Sky Ride. From up there we could see the Caterpillar.'A' and I planned to go on that. It's not a fast as The Himalaya that used to be at Salisbury Beach, nor does it play music like The Himalaya did - Wipe Out! It is amazing that when the green canvas cover closes over the 'caterpillar' the temperature drops at least 5 degrees.

After the Caterpillar, 'A' wanted to try the Skateboard. It didn't look too bad watching it from a park bench so I said I'd give it a try.Ahemmmm. I could do it again. If I had to. Slightly more disorienting than I like to be made to feel.

As we headed for a leisurely 20 minute pontoon boat tour of Canobie Lake, we passed the original, old, flying swings.Really cool looking. A definite maybe that we eventually decided against. But maybe next time.

Passed by this guy on our way to get a cold drink and head for more rides.

The next post will end our visit to the amusement park. See you then.

My kind of amusement park! I wanna go! Tell me they have cotton candy and chili dogs, too! Not that I'd ever eat such things (specially before hitting the rides), but every real amusement park has to have 'em.

Oh yes, all that stuff. And soft serve, funnel cakes, Italian ice, burgers, onion rings, fries, and my favorite - fried dough. At an enormous profit! We had a light lunch before arriving, bought only ice tea while there, and then had dinner on the way home. Many people pack coolers of food. You can't take them into the park, but you can get your hand stamped for re-entry and eat at your car.

Oh yeah, now that you mention it. We did get tilted, as in whirled. Stop reading ahead of what has been posted. (grin)
