This is the 4th and final post about the fun things we did on our vacation this year...
On our last day in Bowling Green, KY, we decided to go to BEECH BEND AMUSEMENT PARK. They open at 10:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. There are two sides to the park: One for rides and shows, and one for Splash Lagoon Water Park. We spent a couple of hours on the rides, and went to a magic show before lunch. After lunch, we changed and went to the water park. I don't have any pictures of us in the water park side because, while we were there, JJ's ear began hurting him terribly. We ended up leaving at 3:30 and took him to a quick care clinic. They said his ear was red, a sign of infection. So, we gave him pain meds, packed up the car, and headed home.
For the amount of time we spent there, it was a nice enough amusement park. Our biggest complaints were that they didn't have enough workers to run all the rides, a couple of the rides were run down and not working properly, and the park closes too early for a hot summer day. However, they do provide free parking, free sunscreen, and free glasses of cold water. Under other circumstances, we would have stayed until closing time.
