Peter's Monday Blog - WOE Expansion Update - Journey through Time - A new family coaster experience & more!
It's the first Monday in July! In just three days we'll be celebrating our nation's Independence. The WOE is unpacking all the Americana for the special occasion.
Back in 2011, Jennifer, Sally, and I had the great opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. for the 4th of July holiday. We spent a week there and watched the entertainment and fireworks from the Capitol lawn. On that trip, we also visited and toured the White House. We saw the very rooms where every president (except Washington) and world leaders sat and dined in.
We visited The Library of Congress, The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial, and the Ford Theater. In 2012, we stopped for a few days on our way to N.Y. We visited Arlington National Cemetery.
No matter how you feel about your country and the other party, there is something about watching the fireworks on the lawn of the Capital. If you allow it, there is real patriotism that can seep into you and make you proud, maybe not of what we have, but of what we can make it. That, to me, is democracy.
I have released a new writing in Reflections: Should it be a Choice?
I do hope you enjoyed the conclusion of the WOE Short Story: Back to the Elevator in the Graveyard. If you guessed the last line in the story left room for a third story in the series, you're correct!
In case you missed it, I updated Peter's Pics with pictures and review of Dollywood.
WOE Complex Expansion update: Journey Through Time.
Back to the Science and Discovery Section for a fantastic new attraction, made for the whole family. It will be called Journey Through Time. You will enter a science lab with Professor Inglepop. He has invented the first new time machine for tourists, that promises to take them on a journey through time.
Of course, Professor Inglepop is no engineer, and along your journey, there will be a few problems. But I'm sure he'll help you get through them (hopefully).
Each time machine vehicle holds 16-passengers and has the ability to go up to 125 m.p.h. The track is over one mile long and wraps around and intersects throughout the entire Section and even out past the Complex. There are no loops or major drops, but a lot of acceleration, turns, and pure fun!
But be prepared, as, with everything in the Science and Discovery Section, you will be edutained (Education + Entertainment). Meaning, you will love learning and not even have a sore brain after.
Thanks for reading! Until next time,
