I was reading the Comfest thread and saw many people mentioning Zoombezi so I thought I'd clear some clutter and start this new thread.

I just got back from a day at the bay. And by "day at the bay" I really meant "Day at Crocktail Island, drinking beer". I love finally being able to be on the grownup side of the waterpark. The prices were REALLY good for a theme park. 16oz drafts were $4.99, and you could get Shock Top or Goose Island. But for $9, you get a 23oz Pilsner glass, that ony costs $3.99 to refill, for the rest of the summer. I was telling my wife, $4 for a 23oz Goose Island is better than 98% of bars in town, I would bet.

New slides = there's only 2. One of them has this stupid washout ramp, and it looks kinda boring. The other one has some nice dips, and this awesome upwards part. Hard to describe. I really liked that one.

Here is a picture of me, super drunk, at 4pm today. With my awesome $15 shades that I bought at the zoo. #winning

Um, Erin? You know Saturday is Comfest, right? I know you're new to town and all, but it's kind of a big deal.

seems like they should just keep the otters over at the bay. I suspect they'd love the slides.

there is little on earth more sad than making it to the otters after they've tuckered themselves out and are done for the day . . .

they were 'reacting' to your voice because it was a ceaseless and piercing squeal, mostly in the range that only marine mammals can hear.

I woke up this morning to a commercial for Zoombezi Bay on the radio and haven't been able to stop saying, "Zoombezi Bay" like the guy on the radio spot does. I've been cracking myself up all morning.
