And a few more Funtown Splashtown USA pictures to coax you into reading about my mathematics blog; how's that sound?
The Camelot Bridge, entrance to the part of Funtown Splashtown USA with the Excalibur roller coaster. The lions and the shield look to be gold-leaf at least, and brilliant in the sunlight.
The actual official Photo Spot by the Exalibur station. The station and the spot for buying ride photos and gift shop and all that are heavily done in the Medieval Castle Except In Teal style.
The Excalibur station, as seen from leaving the ride. Each row has its own name and shield; if I remember right we rode in Sir Perceval. If I don't remember right, it hardly matters.
Animal friends come running for the decorative Spinning Teacups ride! A view of some of the park statues. They're more common near the edges of the current park.
Funtown Splashtown USA's ``Classic Carousel'', a modern-issue Chance fiberglass carousel. It has got a Stimson Band Organ, although sadly on the far side of the ride from the entrance so it's hard to see. Not hard to hear.

Currently Reading: Hacking Matter: Levitating Chairs, Quantum Mirages, and the Infinite Weirdness of Programmable Atoms, Wil McCarthy. So far I'm not buying it, but I'm sad Omni wasn't around to illustrate it all.
