Well kids I just got back and have good news and bad news , for me.. on our second day of our trip this was our first stop.. and guess what.. I rode the mine ride.. However I was squeeshed.. I mentioned to the little girl ( at my age they are all little girls.) .. that I had tried to ride the day the mine opened.. and she promptly let us ride again.. and THATS WHEN I HURT MY KNEE.. It couldn't take the togetherness of my big legs and other vital parts.. and it got worst as the week went on .. the last two days I had to ride a scooter just to make out the day. I guess that a couple of days of being home and not walking 9 to 12 miles a day will make it better.. but be careful on this ride big guys.. I won't ever ride this ride again.. but at least I did it twice in one day.. twice in 10 minutes.. and the ride itsself is GREAT..
