Movieland. AKA: Is this LEGAL?!?

One weekend in August we decided to head to a local amusement park about 3 hours from here instead of sit around the house being bored. We went to the park during the day and then did a Medieval dinner show that night.

It was super fun but let me tell you what.... Movieland is probably the scariest amusement park I have EVER been to. We about died.
There are no real rules at this park. We rode one ride that a man was actually driving the truck we rode in (meaning it was not on a track) and he went flying over the bumps and hills. He also slammed it into reverse and we went flying into a lake.

And best of all.... there are no seat belts on this ride or ANY of the other rides! One lady even had her baby on her lap for one ride and almost lost her child.

On another ride we were required to step down a tiny steep ladder into a submarine in the dark while there were gallons of water being dumped on us to simulate bombs going off in the water. It was scary and quite hilarious at the same time.
Once inside the cramped space, you sat on a pipe (of course no seat belts) facing another row of people on a pipe. Then you were violently rocked back and forth while water from an overhead sprinkler poured down. All the while trying not to fall onto the other row of people on the pipe. The entire time I couldn't stop laughing because of how ridiculous it was.

We really had a great time and couldn't help but talk about how much this would NOT fly in the states.

This was taken right before getting in the truck of death.

This ride was in the kiddy land and it was so much fun. It probably went on for 10 minutes. It spun forward and then went backward. I really enjoyed the first 8 minutes but then I was ready to get off for fear of being sick.

The Medieval show was great and the food was really good.

One note to self: I am deathly allergic to horses. I could have used an epi-pen.


  1. Aaaahhhh!!!! That sounds fun/scary! I would not have survived!

  2. I am laughing so loud right now. Next time you need to film it.
