FantaSea truly did not suck. Before it closed it was better than Oceans of Fun.

This is a hill i'm willing to die on. At the time it was way better than Oceans of Fun.

I saved a lot of lives there guys, there was a lifeguard station at the kiddie area where unsuspecting kiddos would end up in 4 ft of water and just look up at you with panic in their eyes, I must have hauled a thousand of them out of that 6x6 area, never had to make a save anywhere else in the park other than a few little snapper- heads that would venture too deep down the side of the wave pool.

In reading the article, it sounded like there was a lot of late night sex'n going on once the park closed.   :fatty:

We've got goat threads.  We've got yoga threads.  But this goes in the thread honoring the city that's combined it all.

just now read this article, my fave part...

“You know, as Wichitans, one of our favorite pastimes is eating,” Miller said. “At least three times a day — more if you include evening entertainment.”

Headed to Hutch tomorrow for the cosmosphere then to Wichita.  Supposed to do Tanganika wildlife park, but based on the forecast, probably need another kid friendly spot.   Any recommendos and places good to eat for kids?

Think theres a pretty cool temporary exhibit at Exploration Place.  Its indoors and weatherproof.

BUT it also looks like you've got some fine Zoo weather to look forward to, today!

Pretty sure the hookers are gone now. Sonny is out and the place is being run by new management. They remodeled the crap out of it and are pushing a more business by day Family by night atmosphere. It actually looks pretty nice in there now. I bet the new manager went thru the place with a black light and was :sdeek:
