First ride of the day..a huge ferris wheel..swinging type. Some of the cages are swinging type and others stationery. There is nothing to hold onto, but it goes around extremely slowly. Very uninteresting.

You can see the cars fitted with two cannons in the front, one for each player. Several 4D game screens keep coming up during the ride for us to aim and shoot and score points.

You can guess whose score was higher. My accuracy is better though!

In the Grizzly River Run..these people just missed it. But, when we went, it just managed to catch us on one side and i got wet through and through..R did not get very wet.

Simulated hang gliding, where we soar and swoop over rivers, beaches, snow capped mountains, field and trees and city roads in the night. Wonderful experience using simulation plus i -max imagery.
