Went to the Mall of America yesterday, and had a good time. 5 out of the 6 supervisors for Coaster Tours were there, and as a whole I think the mall got covered.
We spent a little bit of our time in Knott's Camp Snoopy (The mall's indoor amusement park, managed by Cedar Fair). Ripsaw, the coaster, was an interesting experience. Not because it was good, but because the seats on the train are so tiny it makes it fun to try and get in.
The theming in the park is pretty good, however, and the Log Flume was excellent. Also we rode on the "Mighty Axe" which is an extremely fun flat ride.
However, most of our time was bouncing around in the mall itself which has an unbelievable number of stores. Some of the highlights was a multi-million dollar nascar simulator and a tryout of some prototype yo-yos. But, some members of the group didn't quite figure them out completely and managed to hit a few pedestrians on accident.
BTW If you were at MOA and were hit by a Bungee Ball we apologize. ;)
You build it, I'll ride it
