Theme Parks

Roller coasters, bumper cars and twirl-a-whirls. Sunday boyfriend and I spent the day with friends at Hershey Park. Chilly, but a great weather to walk around, take in rides. Boyfriend won prizes playing skee-ball and tossing rings on top of bottles. Yay, more bears for me. I, on the other hand, felt like Charlie Brown and the football, my skee-ball game had so much promise and fizzled out midway through. It’s the one came I stick with as I’m not very good at the hoops, roll the bowling bar so it doesn’t hit the light and come all the way back or shooting.

Chocolate screamed our names at the Chocolate World – Kisses, Mounds; Almond Joys …the list goes on. While we got our fill of the Hershey classics, we were disappointed to find that they didn’t have some of the unique things they used to have that you couldn’t find in the food store. In years past we’d go home with bags filled of unique treats. We did manage to find a new flavor of Good & Plenty – it was supposed to be hot but everything tasted like the fruit flavors mixed with cinnamon and was rather strange. The consensus was stick to the original.

What is your favorite amusement park? Do you stick with rides, play games or both?


  1. I love roller coasters and hate ferris wheels.

  2. I HATE the ferris wheel too! I was on one once and the person rocked it all the way up and back ... no ferris wheels allowed.

  3. Rides?!? Who needs rides when you've got a ticket to Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory?

  4. I like both. Shooting games are my favorite and love log flumes.
