A Spring-like Day« Go Back Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012
Its so nice out! I took the opportunity to run out into the park and grab a few shots of the happenings. I'll share those in a minute. First, here are some updates regarding the new worldsoffun.com stemmed from emails, blog comments, and forum questions.
The new site is a work in progress, so some things like Alumni Junction will take a bit to get back online. Also, we will have a mobile site and a mobile app, and they will have Facebook and Twitter integrated right in them. So, when you are out in the park using the app, you can post how awesome my hair was when I walked by, or like a Prowler ride rating or something. Obviously one is more important than the other in that scenario.
Also, did you check out that you can click the Oceans of Fun logo for an Oceans site? Sweet!
Oh, and be sure to check out the new cart and online ticketing this spring as we add meal specials, upgrades, and more. I add more functionality, images, and content to the new site almost every day so check it out often!
Ok, now on to the park. There is some action happening out there due to the nice weather, so that is fun. It feels very spring-y out! First thing, Wacky Worm has had its name changed to Cosmic Coaster, and its going to look amazing in its new home! We're in the process of clearing the old kid train site to make room. Its a larger plot than I expected, and will make a nice showpiece for when you enter Planet Snoopy. You can also see in this photo that Wolf's backside is getting some attention. :)
On down the path, one thing I noticed throughout the park is a lot of new roofs and woodwork in general. Check out a little entrance love for Timber Wolf.
Here is some action! These guys are blasting Monsoon, which gets a paintjob this year.
Speaking of that area, the Ride & Slide gate will soon be no more, and we're going to re-work that entrance a little bit. You'll still have access to both parks right there, but the pathways will be changed.
Oh, and the big one! This will bring a tear of joy to a lot of people that read this blog, but Boomerang will also receive new paint in the next few weeks.
I'll be back later to share some more details on fun things like the new shows and the new food offerings. A couple of quick hints....the new night country show at Country Junction (dog show stage) will feature a live band! Sweet! Also, the Clements are back this year with a real dog and pony show!
Have a good afternoon!
