The Most Magical Place On Earth...or at least Vizag

MGM Selvee World! Never heard of it? Shame. It's like Disneyvillage. After passing the sign for 2 months, we finally decided it was time to see what it was all about. Who knew that behind a forest/public park--a 20 minute walk from our neighborhood--lurked this veritable wonderland for American lawyers?

See: upside-down rocket ride with canvas seatbelts. (photocredit: Ally. I am actually riding in that rocket like a crazy person. I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Fear of death can be pretty funny.)

Who knows when the last safety checks were performed? Probably never. The Big Wheel was using bald tires that sounded like they might implode at any second. But the sea is right there to distract you. Smart move, Indians. Blissfully unaware of impending doom:

Disneyworld's Matterhorn is no match:

I do not ride these at Disneyworld either:

Disneyvillage also apparently enlisted (against his will?) Grumpy in place of the Haunted Mansion. I was too scared to ride:

A classic, made even better with pelting rain near the end. Also, it was about 5 minutes longer than normal (that is to say, 5 minutes too long):

If history has shown that something sounds like a great idea, and then completely, maybe don't repeat it:

(bad picture, it all of a sudden got dark and started pouring soon after. We had a very wet walk home)

Needless to say, we had fun.
