How we spent our Saturday

Lake Winnie

Arn and I spent yesterday at this GREAT little amusement park up near the Tennessee state line, called Lake Winnepesaukah. They have a seriously cool wooden roller coaster called The Cannonball, and the oldest boat chute in the US (it was built in 1927!). It was an awesome time. :)

Here's a Flickr set of all of my pics from the trip (46 in all).

Oh man this is sooooo cool looking. Every looks to very well cared for. How was the coaster? How do we get there? How much does it cost?

Dude, you should SO take little JV up there. Y'all would have a blast. :)

It's 3 bucks to get in, and 19 bucks for a pass that lets you ride all the rides all day long. Otherwise, you can buy tickets for 80 cents each, and most rides take 3 or 4 tickets, like at a fair.

It's up I-75, almost to the Tennessee line. It took us about 1.5 hours to get there from Chamblee. I'll give you more precise directions if you decide to go. And yeah, everything is extremely well cared-for... you can definitely tell it's a family running this park and not a corporation.

Also, as I kept telling Arn, it's like walking into a life-size game of Rollercoaster Tycoon. :D ALL the classic rides are there.

It's like walking into a live version of Roller Coaster Tycoon. Well worth the hour drive to get there. We did have issues with the height sticks being completly inconsistant... but that won't be an issue by next summer.

Y'all went this weekend? That's TOO COOL! :D

Did James like the boat chute, or did y'all try that?
