Question for my colleagues
« on: November 06, 2007, 01:16:16 PM »

The recent story (below) of an accident over the weekend at the Mall of America has me wondering. I have visited MOA on numerous occasions and even accompanied my daughters on a few of the rides at the indoor amusement park and have always had the same question pass through my mind.....

Why would anyone name something "Paul Bunyan's Log Chute"?  It just doesn't conjour up an image of something I really want to ride on. Or be near.

Paul Bunyan Log Chute remains closed at Mall after a 2-log collision

A popular ride at the Mall of America's amusement park remains closed as officials try to determine what led to a malfunction Sunday.

By Tim Harlow, Star Tribune

Riders were escorted off the Paul Bunyan Log Chute around 4:30 p.m. after a boat slipped on a conveyor belt and two cars bumped into each other.

None of the 29 riders in boats were seriously injured, but shortly after the ride was shut down, one adult did request an ice pack for a stiff neck or back, but declined further medical attention, said Anna Lewicki Long, a Mall of America spokeswoman.

Why would anyone put a log ride in a mall anyways?

I'm sure the Mall of America has this all figured out and all, but I'm imagining drippy little children in swimsuits running rampant through a Gap to get to the parking lot.  Eew, and drying themselves off on the towels at Macy's.

Eew. 

So, again, why would anyone put a log ride in a mall anyways?

It is a big *fudge*in' Mall.  Wink

And it's not really a water ride in that you don't really get soaked. Other than that it's your basic roller coasters, merry-go-rounds, etc.

I've read about Malls such as the Mall Of America, and I have only one question.

Why?

Yeah I get that, but I kinda think that having an amusement park in a mall serves no purpose.... much like a haemorrhoid....

Hemorrhoids do serve a purpose. It's your body telling you to get off your fat ass.

I suspect then that are lots of large-ish people who are either deaf or just aren't listening to their haemorrhiods Shocked

Just wait 'til your kids gets old enough that when you're draggin' his ass around a mall, you just wish the one you're at has something like an amusement park in the middle of it, unless you went to a mall that has an amusement park in the middle and you have to constantly tell him "No, we didn't come here for that." and then you wish you just wouldn't have to go to malls at all, and could just sit at home on your ass with hemorrhoids.
