OK, I need more time to write than I'm all that sure I have this early in the week, so I'm going to vamp a little, with pictures from Rye Playland as part of the vamp. Thanks for being so kind about this.

Dragons and warriors and demon facade just over the gift shop on the north end of Rye Playland. You'd think one spot somewhere in here would have a Playland T-shirt but no, not so far as I can tell.

DragonTron: the video screen above the Dragon Coaster entrance and that gets into action showing stuff in the evening and night. It fascinated me so.

View of the Rye Playland main midway, with its gorgeous walkway and The Dragon way off in the background center.
