And really, who could blame them? That is honestly the coolest playground ever. We also convinced them to go watch a 3-D IMAX movie of Sea monsters which scared the snot out of Jenelle, while Meri causally ate her pretzels, but that's a whole other story.

Looking around, pretty much it was us, a couple of like 5-th grade age boys and lots and lots of groups of 70 year-old men talking about way back when.
