So what did we do for my birthday last year? We spent it ...
At Kokomo's: the bumper boats ride, on the left, and in the distance, their roller coaster, the Serpent. The family entertainment center gives off every sign of having been ready to become a minor amusement park before the 2008 fiscal crisis reminded us what happens when we let Republicans run things. Notably, there's a lot of space between most of the amusements and the roller coaster, enough space for a Ferris wheel, a Musik Express, a Scrambler or other attractions. Maybe someday ...
Me getting arty: since those low-angle shots on golf balls worked so well at the Lugnuts ballpark, why not try it at a proper miniature golf course?
bunny_hugger on the Kokomo's miniature golf course, which we visit one or two times every year and never tire of because it is so weird and challenging and bizarre. I mean, the thing has water hazards you're supposed to drop your ball into. What's with that?
Breezy day at the miniature golf course: tall grass at Kokomo's, with ripply water hazards behind, and even the roller coaster in the extreme distance.
Once again, I get arty. The view from the ground of what had clearly once been part of the water hazards of Kokomo's miniature golf course, but that was channeled off and made dry. The golf course shows many signs of alteration over its history, not all of which can be put into an obviously logical narrative.
The last thing your miniature golf ball sees before becoming a one-stroke penalty.
