When I hear the name “Adventureland,” I am filled with the instinct to make a sharp left at the end of Main Street U.S.A and dart into the land of Tiki Birds, Treehouses, Jungle Cruises and Pirates. I’m filled with the kind of happiness that words cannot describe. And so, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be very upset to find out that this blog post has nothing to do with any of that.

Reminds me of 1989, working the hand-cars for the final year of existance of White Swan Park. That was a great summer.

I'm pumped for Adventureland. As someone who both worked in the Kennywood games department for several summers, it has that appeal for me. Also, my cousin is in the movie (he's the kid in the trailer singing and playing the air drums).
