Dollywood to unveil SkyZip
Pigeon Forge, TN: Dollywood, the amusement park owned by Dolly Parton, will open their new attraction SkyZip this season. While the article didn’t exactly give a lot of details about the ride, I’m pretty sure it’s one of those automatic cable rides that jettisons riders across a ravine at a brisk speed. It’s cost $40 bucks to ride, being a “premium” thrill attraction (aka stupid low capacity.)

Let’s Take an Acid Trip to Seaworld!
Orlando, FL: It’s stories like this that always bring a smile to my face; a smile made from the thought of “haha, that’s funny” and “oh crap” smashed together…you know that smile! Yesterday at SeaWorld Orlando a “sweaty, shirtless man on LSD” attempted to gain entry to the park. After the 23 year old man attempted to enter the park a second time, a skirmish erupted, he was shot with a stun gun numerous times and eventually used a recycling bin lid as a shield while screaming “never!” at the stun gun wielding deputy. Wow, now that’s something I would have liked to see!
