All American Corners Construction

Liberty Twirler

Liberty Twirler Over at the Liberty Twirler site we see not a ton of progress on the outside with the walls still up

Liberty Twirler Looking at the site, some ground work has been done but not too much. Like I've said in the past, this ride won't take a ton of time to get done but it needs to be done eventually!

Orbit

Orbit Orbit still has its sign out front...

Orbit But so much more has changed! The cars are finally back on and they look amazing

Orbit The area in front of the ride is blocked off to allow for workers to access the cars

Orbit And workers are indeed getting the ride ready

Orbit I can't imagine it would take much longer than another month to get this ride running again

Orbit So glad to see progress on this ride finally! Its opening can't get here soon enough!

Game Time

Game Time Finally, at the old Game Time restaurant something is happening

Game Time New paint job and railings out front. Can't wait to see what becomes of this restaurant

Misc Updates

Misc Updates Not bad, only two rides down today!

Misc Updates Drop Tower is open again!

Misc Updates Action Zone isn't the same without it

Misc Updates South Bay Shores is open again! Looks great and is as crowded as ever. I look forward to getting to visit soon

Misc Updates Couldn't resist taking pictures of the cute ducks in the park

Misc Updates This mother had all her babies with her. Very cute!

And that will wrap up our update today! I always enjoy when the park puts on festivals and it was good to see an old favorite like Red White and Brews back. I look forward to seeing what comes of all of the All American Corners work as well. We'll be back in July as the park brings Carnivale to Northern California!
