Raise your hand if you think we've had too many Halloween updates lately!!!
Well, we aren't gonna raise our hand, but we know some of you feel that way.
Why don't we take a break from Halloween and look at a fun road trip Renee recently took to some out of the way parks in Alabama and Florida!!
Written by Renée Girard
Today we’re on a random road trip in the south! First stop of the day is The Track in Gulf Shores, AL.
We’re here for the spinning coaster! Park #1 of the day completed.
Next stop, The Park at Owa! Unfortunately it opens an hour later than advertised on the website, which puts a slight dent in our schedule, but we’ll make it work!
It looks like they’re getting ready for Halloween festivities.
There are some nice places at OWA, almost like a mini CityWalk. We decided to grab some drinks at the Groovy Goat.
We’re in! The Park is really nice. Everything looks great and clean.
First coaster ride at OWA is crazy mouse. Whoa, this thing can spin!
There is a decent selection of flat rides here as well.
Southern Express is the kiddie coaster at OWA . Might as well get a ride on it!
And then there’s Rollin’ Thunder, which one of our friends accurately described as the equivalent to being pushed in a shopping cart.
On to our next park!! The main reason for this trip, Waterville USA for the final weekend of Cannonball Run. Got our first and last rides in today.
Our final stop of our coaster tour in the south in Sam’s Fun City in Pensacola, FL.
We talked our way on to the Miner Mike kiddie coaster at Sam’s Fun City. A new low, but hey, why not when you travel a great distance.
And finally, to conclude our trip, we rode the Emerald Coaster at Sams Fun City, which only opened at the top of the hour, so getting another beer was the obvious choice. The coaster was surprisingly smooth!
We hope you enjoyed this look at some out of the way parks!! We'll get back to our regularly scheduled Halloween updates tomorrow. =)
