I arrived in Pigeon Forge, TN last evening, intent on riding as many coasters as possible today. I hate coasters, but my friend, Chrissy, loves them. She usually gets me to go to Cedar Fair parks with the promise of seeing Snoopy (Cedar Fair parks’ mascot). I collect all things Snoopy (but I won’t get in to that here, as I’ll save that for a future post).
Well, I tried. I got most of the coasters, there was only one I couldn’t do. I got locked in to one coaster with an overhead restraint, and it freaked me out. The overhead restraints tend to close in tight when the coaster is moving and when it stops, you can’t move at all. Sends me in to panic mode.
But that’s ok, because I’m here and accomplished my goal!!
Anyone out there like coasters?
An interesting article about an interesting turn of events…
Here’s an interesting story about the rise and fall of the American Mall from PBS News Hour. This short video shows how things have changed for retail in this country. Many malls are reinventing themselves, but will this trend continue? Could this type of creativety save Sears, JCPenney, and others, or will in force them in to a deeper, downward spiral?
