More or less underneath the movie theater (complete with IMAX theater and a number of "normal" theaters) is a pirate ship :) A full size pirate ship that can be used for events and such.....
|this time with christmas decoration!|
|that picture is from 2011, actually|
There's an amusement park for little children called Galaxyland.
And then a second amusementpark for older children - complete with rollercoasters (yep, plural) and a free fall tower....
|also from 2011|
Also, there is an entire hotel inside the Mall. And the hotel (and thus the mall) has a water park... with a bunch of different slides and a wave-pool thingy....
And then there's the movie theater itself with its fire-spitting dragon. Yep, real fire, a couple of times a day, just for fun....
|it's a "she" by the way :)|
Don't believe me? Go ahead, google it, check it out yourself :) I wouldn't believe me either if I hadn't seen it... Oh yeah, there are a couple of shops in the mall too..... ;)
So, yeah, WestEd, always fun :) Especially if the actual reason for the visit is watching The Hobbit - in 3D - and IMAX - and including a prolongued preview of the new Star Trek Movie *yay* :D It was awesome! A little loud but awesome :) Needless to say, we were very happy! Who's we? The family of course!
|.... and maybe a little confusion... :)|
I had so much fun! I couldn't have asked for a better present!
And it goes to show they really are my family :) Because they were just as excited as I was! *nerds, everywhere!* :D Barbie was like "wish it was May already" and I couldn't agree more. But what really got me was realizing that I will soon be there, in Hobbiton. At least for a day ;) *yay* can't wait!
