I am sure its been posted in the past, but why not resurrect it. Great show.
King of Queens.
Link Fail :-)
All I can think about when I see this is how awful it would be to push someone around Magic Mountain in a wheelchair. Workout of the century.
I pushed my Mom around in a wheelchair at Dollywood a few years back. It was difficult for the both of us. We went back the next day, and she insisted on renting a scooter.
She is doing a lot better now, but she will still probably need a scooter when we go back this Spring.
I had not seen this episode and found it to be alright. The ice cream skit is pretty funny to me.
I agree about the workout with the wheelchair. This makes me wonder, what would be the five "hilliest" US parks?
That's an interesting question. Dorney would HAVE to be top 5. Hershey has certain areas that are rather hilly. Cedar Point and Great Adventure? I don't think they'd make the top 50. GAdv, when it comes to STAIRS, however...that's a horse of a different color (sorry, saw Wizard Of Oz on the big screen a few weeks back. It's still with me.) the stairs on Nitro and especially Bizarro, take a lot out of me.
Silver Dollar City is a pretty steep climb as well. Not so bad going in. But, make sure you save some energy at the end of the day, or you might not make it to the front of the park. ;-)
Busch Gardens Williamsburg?
Oh yeah, Josh. I remember my second visit, musta been early 90's. My mom was a heavy woman, and we got her an electric scooter/wheelchair type of thing. The cursory instructions we were given didn't stick. She almost went straight into the Rhine down a really steep hill, unable to control the speed and causing many innocent bystanders to leap out of the way. My nephew and I caught up to her about 20 feet from the water. I had to hold the chair while it was still in gear while another patron flagged down an employee for help.
Holiday World, SFStL, and SFOG also come to mind when considering "hilly" parks.
Mt. Olympus is hilly as anything, but then you add in ALL those stairs...flatlanders like me have a hard time getting around (and sore legs the following day).
