  1. I don't think we're hitting a junction of the community falling apart, the supressed working class plotting to overthrow the Bourgeoisie or any kind of poltically driven assassination attempts. The sad fact of the matter is that on this or any message board you're going to have a small handful of people who have such trivial existances that they must make a contrary point (whatever it may be) on any subject matter. Just like in real life, ignore them and move on.

    Thats what you think Ryan...

  2. The rides are in the front of the Zoo almost totally separate from the zoo itself.. There is the animal encounters stage but that's it for the animals in Jungle Jacks Landing. The rides cost 8 dollars on top of zoo admission and the waterpark is around 25 bucks it can be pricey however its very well done.

    Btw

    Awesome sign

  3. Yesterday was a wonderfully warm day and it was my moms birthday. She wanted to go see the polar bears at the zoo so I figured for her birthday to go ahead and take her up.

    Walking into the Zoo I see that they still have trams

    After renewing my membership for the year we entered the park and decided to walk around Jungle Jacks Landing to test out my new camera.

    The rides would open later in the day however right now the pathway was open and we were free to walk around.

    Walking in the 1st thing you see is the Log flume

    Looking around the station it looks like it wasn't ready for the season yet. I didn't see any logs in and the water was filthy.

    Next up I walked by the flyers. I road these last year and they are snappable however I didn't ride them today

    Walking around again was Journey to Zanzibar

    4613917630_15f8a79b89.jpg

    As I walked around the area You can see the jungle trek car ride

    4613917994_277ed1a7fc.jpg

    Once again it didn't look ready to open. Funny enough they were running a 2 for 1 special today because I it looked like a lot of the rides weren't quite ready yet.

    I decided to test my camera out some and took a picture of the large slide complex in the water park

    Speaking of the water park the gate was open to the main entrance. I stuck my camera in and grabbed a quick shot.

    Next we walked towards the kids area towards Sea Dragon

    4613303117_a4a4df5197.jpg

    Next up was the frog hopper and Sea Dragon.

    Sea Dragon spent most of last year in rehab. However this morning it looks like it was ready to go

    4613922038_2cbe3b0d8c.jpg

    We walked by a ready to go Gibbons

    4613303877_6748f15dff.jpg

    Then the scrambler

    4613304261_ba6d9068fe.jpg

    Then as we finished our circle we went by the safari cars

    4613924400_541e51d818.jpg

    Walking back around they had birds on leashes!

    Here is an owl being all like what..

    4613925592_2996454ded.jpg

    Then there was this ferret looking thing

    4613307693_237aabbace.jpg

    Then there was the sparrow...and some outlets

    4613926566_d10721afee.jpg

    Then there is the Turkey Vulture

    4613308423_0585ff8f88.jpg

    As we were walking back we saw the Flamingo parade

    4613309565_fde13c77d7.jpg

    One of the shows the zoo does is the Cheetah & dog show

    4613928584_8591ff58b2.jpg

    They tell the stories that the dogs are used to scare off the Cheetahs but these two have been raised together and they seem to get together well enough although the dog is a bit crazy.

    The Cheetahs are still young and growing but this is a cat I wouldn't mess with

    4613311021_2485a6c3cd.jpg

    The keepers told me the cheetah kept eying the kids because it would be easy prey.

    The dog on the other hand loved all the attention.

    4613311321_c1e4553f7e.jpg

    We then walked back to the North America part of the zoo to see the polar bears. As we were walking up we saw the Bison

    4613311321_c1e4553f7e.jpg

    Right at the railroad crossing is the solar house which is being built by OSU and the zoo

    4613935160_ca1e3e2df1.jpg

    After waiting for the train to cross we were in to Polar Frontier

    4613318015_83430c7e82.jpg

    The area itself is very well themed out

    4613937654_06b80c1d1b.jpg

    Even the employee only area signs are well thought out

    4613937654_06b80c1d1b.jpg

    Next we walked into the "mine" down to the under water viewing area.

    4613939432_e49a851204.jpg

    There is tons of fish in the water for the bear to eat. How ever today the bear wasn't fishing

    4613940060_3638db95a7.jpg

    from here you can walk up to the "living room". This area is setup with TV's showing the polar bears. A gift shop, and a really neat display showing the ice caps melting,.

    4613941096_30173c6de4.jpg

    4613942012_986cde812b.jpg

    Walking towards the outdoor viewing area we got to see the polar bear

    4613324025_1fb9de2489_o.jpg

    4613325941_e4054651f2.jpg

    I got to see the brown bear too

    4613944864_fb82536475.jpg

    As we went towards the exit there is the Arctic fox

    4613326631_e3ce02c62f.jpg

    It was ultra crowded in the area so we made our way back down and out of the zoo.

    It was a fun couple of hours and the new exhibit was very fun and informative.
