Ode to the Tilt-A-Whirl...

I'm usually not one for outright campy stuff...but sometimes if it's so over-the-top kitschy, I'm hooked.

This explains my long-standing love for the Tilt-A-Whirl....have just always loved this ride. And who can resist coasting around a man-made lake in a giant white swan or watching the random 3-year-old scream (I think a happy scream?) on the swing ride.

Recently went on a little family outing to this old-school amusement park just outside of Denver...really feels like you are out at some random State Fair, minus the colorful carnival folks that usually run these things. That day we just got a bunch of disinterested teenagers making sure we were seat belt compliant and wouldn't spit off the ferris wheel.

Nonetheless...was fun to see my 8yo DS and 4 yo DD have a blast, while their geeky mom was taking close-ups of the rides.
And in case you are also fascinated by the Tilt-A-Whirl...check out Wikipedia for interesting random facts about the best ride ever.
