Idora Park Lost River

Posted by LOTGK on February 17, 2009

The Lost River – Idora Park – Youngstown

The Lost River was a water ride at the now defunct Idora Park. The Lost River ride was a combination of a tunnel of love roller coaster ride. Riders would step into wooden boats and begin a dark water journey slowly weaving through a tunnel. On the way, scary monsters, flashing lights, and loud sounds would scare the riders.

A few minutes into the journey, the boat would latch onto a chain drive and it would pull the boat up a long dark hill. A moment later the boat would free fall down the hill splashing the riders. You would actually catch a moment of “Air Time” in the boat as it plummeted down. The boat slowed up and drifted back to dock where the riders got out and went on to the next ride.

I can still hear the drums beating and the water rushing down the rapids of the Lost River. Of course the drums were canned music, piped in over a loudspeaker system. The drums sounded a lot like the drums in the movie, Jumanji, starring Robin Williams.

At night time, the rapids would be lit with multicolors, each step in the rapids a different color. And that my friends was the Lost River, one of the many fine rides at Idora Park.

A Clockwork Orange Remake

Posted by LOTGK on January 27, 2009

Feeling Shagged And Fagged And Fashed, It Being A Night Of No Small Expenditure With the Ultraviolet

I spied these two men riding the Ober Gatlinburg ski lift. My wife Patty told me to take their picture. So I did. A moment later, it reminded me of the characters in the Stanley Kubrick film, A Clockwork Orange. We laughed like idiots the rest of the way down the lift.

Crocs – Ugly Ass Shoes

Posted by LOTGK on January 15, 2009


Crocs Invasion Continues

Patty and I were in Gatlinburg, Tennessee a few months ago. We were walking along the Parkway enjoying the weather and the scenery when we happened upon this store front window. There in the showcase was a variety of multicolored Crocs, A/K/A the ugliest ass shoes ever made.

Now I’m not hating, I just cannot understand the appeal of these shoes. Unless you worked in the circus and wore a bright colored red wig with a red bulb nose and painted your face and known by the carnival name Bozo, then you have no business wearing Crocs. Seriously, where the hell else are you going to wear rounded orange plastic shoes with holes in them with no back to them?

P.T. Barnum was right when he said there’s a sucker born every minute.

Gatlinburg Space Needle

The Gatlinburg Space Needle rises just over 400 feet to a 360 degree panoramic viewing platform that holds 250 people. The cost is about $7.00 per person. It’s located at the intersection of Parkway and Historic Road, (Old Airport Road) in the heart of Gatlinburg. The following are several shots i took while visiting. Be sure to click the thumb nail picture for a much larger picture.
