The far end of the park faces the interstate; a strategically-placed spinning mouse is keen on luring in unsuspecting tourists. Between the mouse and the Star Flyer is the gaping maw left by the recently chopped log flume.
Here we have Fantasy Island’s poor-man’s Fascination. It’s like Knoebels’s Fascination except it’s homemade (probably cost $200 and a trip Home Depot) and in every game everyone loses because they’re at Fantasy Island.
It’s a portrait of CCI weirdness: Wavy turnarounds, a small drop into the station, unhappy PTC trains, etc. I’d love to meet the person who convinced Fantasy Island that a wood coaster made up almost entirely of raised turnarounds was a good idea and SHAKE THEIR HAND. I hope you’re somewhere working miracles in the real estate or insurance markets.
Despite the Buffalo parks’ valiant efforts, Sean and I still managed to enjoy ourselves on this tirefire of a day. The stage is set for a great day at Canada’s Wonderland; things can only improve from here.
