Somehow I found myself in Maine today. And I took a few pictures.
I'm rather fond of the Funtown ones.

That would be the Astrosphere and yes, it would still be the dome with the creepy stuff on the walls (and now lasers and strobe lights and stuff.)

And yes, the song they play exclusively at the Astrosphere is still the Electric Light Orchestra's "Fire On High."

Damn, Funtown ruled.

Hey, you know about the Fascination parlor in Hull, MA, right? My girlfriend and I are going there in a month or so.

I went there a couple years ago.

It amused me that one of the cars on the Excalibur ride was named "King Arther" (and that I was the second person to point that out in a week, and no one had ever mentioned it before....)

I wanna go back....

Arthur's front seat has since been repainted. In fact, I'm willing to bet any misspelling was committed during a repainting, as it was spelled correctly when the ride opened.

Arthur gets the front, while Sir Bors de Ganis gets the back. By the way, the ride was named by a local student, who received for her efforts a lifetime pass to the park.
