It's an analogy that applies to this park. It's a collection of rides,
including a couple of hand me downs you might recognise from other parks,
none of which are particularly exclusive or noteworthy in the grand scheme
of things. Indeed when you look around the park as whole it doesn't strike
you as anything striking, or as a park to expect much out from. Instead
though you've got a park that's fun and works, in it's own unique way.
Part of what helps it work is the way the rides are presented. Instead of
being satisfied with basic
presentation, extra effort has been made with the
rides. The parks roller coasters are pretty basic models, of which
you'll find similar examples of rides, and even exact copies of around the
country. They could easily be ride once and forget about rides. This is
avoided though on 2 of them due to the presentation of both rides which have been well
themed, and even had a few tunnels added to them, making both rides more fun
than a plain unthemed
example of them.
These presentational values extend to some of the family rides like the
Pirate Ship and Cannibal Pots, and even to some of the kiddie rides. There
where even some kiddie rides I would have liked to have a go on myself
because they looked so good.
This all helps contribute to the parks unique atmosphere. It's an atmosphere
that creates an atmosphere of it's own. It's one with an edge that says come
and have a go if you think your hard enough. It's one that says it doesn't
care that it doesn't have all the accessories richer parks can afford, it's
still going to provide you with a fun time anyway.
Overall it's a park with a good basic set of rides, and a good atmosphere
that would make me recommend giving this park a try.
