Yeah? I like the rides meant for small children. What of it?
For a brief Wednesday post, I thought I'd post up this photo of me at California Adventures in Anaheim. California Adventures is the new Disney theme park adjacent to Disneyland. It's still pretty small, but it's that kind of place Disney excels in creating: acreage covered in colorful, appealing caricatures of buildings, steeped in nostalgia for a strange, quasi-time that sort of feels like it must have been better than it is now. It's a lot of fun. This is one of the least exciting rides in the whole park -- called the Golden Zephyr (listed on the website under "Family Adventures") and yet here I am on it, thrilled to death, looking like an overgrown recipient of a Day at Disneyland pass from the Make a Wish Foundation. There was no line so we rode this thing like three times. I'll leave it at that.
