Company outing today to Hersheypark. Just got back. Thanks to Bitter for filling in. I basically tend to hit all the roller coasters I used to like as a kid (that I’m almost too fat for these days) and then spend the rest of the time cooling off in the arcade parked at a Skee Ball machine. I could play Skee Ball all day if I had enough quarters. I liked it as a kid, and still like it today. Spent part of the day with sometimes co-blogger Jason and two of his older kids, while his wife was back home with the baby. Hershey Park has changed a lot since I started going there as a tyke, but it’s nice that you can still take kids on the same rides that you went on when you were their age. The Coal Cracker is still fun after all these years, and The Comet can still shake the fillings out of your teeth, just like it’s been doing since it was built in 1946. When we were kids, we used to use the cable cars called “Sky Ride” that traveled high above the park to go from one side of the park to the other, but they seem to have torn that down in 1992.Â In the intervening years they’ve added a lot of steel coasters, but I’m still a fan of the complimentary chiropractic treatments the wooden coasters give you. I stick with the classics of wooden coasters and Skee Ball.
