The Park With a Good Kind of Identity Crisis

TPWGIC002 (Large)Occasionally, when we visit theme parks, we visit one that feels a little out of place. One that lacks an identity, one that lacks what the general public is in general used to. This though doesn’t necessarily mean the park is of lesser quality. In some cases, especially this one, it creates a unique experience for guests. Something that’s quite different than other parks are able to offer.

California’s Great America Update – April 18th 2015

DSC_0120 (Large)We told you we’d be returning soon, and we kept that promise. It was hectic, to say the least.

There is also lots going at the park such as the reopening of quite a few rides, so let’s continue shall we? Continue reading “California’s Great America Update – April 18th 2015”
