Just booked trip for Vegas for the end of the month.  Allegant deal...staying at Venetian.  Have a food tour booked downtown, a couple of shows, and hoping to ride a ride or two on the strip.

Wild Woody is by far the best imo....

How old is it? I remember wooden kart tracks similar to that going back to the '80s in Branson.

Kenny's Funland report is great....lol

That motorcycle jumper ride is probably the same one I rode at our local county fair back in the early 90s....lol

I wouldn't trust the swinger ride....lol

Iíll be honest... I never ride carnival rides.  I just donít trust them.  BUT I saw the carnival set up next to the Mall and decided to have a look around.  Sad part is, it had more rides than what they normally have at Jeff City Jaycees Fair

Aren't all the rides at AFP carnival rides?

Yes, but AFP is a little bit of a different situation.  If you get right down to it, you could make the same argument for several rides at established amusement parks.

Arrived home from an incredible trip to Israel yesterday.  Absolutely fantastic.  Now only have 4-5000 photos to dig through, plus video and more.  LOL  Going to take a while to get it all posted, but when I do it'll show up on my Sir Willow Facebook page.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.
