A Florida-Bound Spring Break!

About two weeks ago (from when this is written), I had my spring break in Florida and dedicated it to knocking out 2 water parks and a cruise! The week started off when I paid a visit to Rapids Water Park near West Palm Beach, Florida on March 18th. The day after was spent relaxing with family and preparing for the cruise, which was on the next day when we drove 2 hours North out of Miami to Port Canaveral, to board the Disney Dream ship for a 3-day cruise to Nassau Bahamas and Disney’s Castaway Cay private island. At Nassau, we did get off the ship for the Aquaventure water park at Atlantis Paradise Resort!

Because the Disney Cruise ended the day before my classes started back up, I’ve been having a little bit of trouble trying to get all pictures, videos, and reviews out as fast as I wish. So far, pages for all three places (Disney Dream, Rapids, and Atlantis Nassau) have been made and published to the Water Slide Database website, and all photographs have been uploaded tot he website and Flickr page. The first video of the whole trip, the Aquaduck POV, has been published as well. All that’s left is to edit and publish two more videos, and finally pump out the reviews for each place.

To keep current with progress on these, you can follow Water Slide Database on Twitter (@WaterSlideDB), “Like” on Facebook, or Subscribe on YouTube. You can also find us on Google+ if that’s your kind of thing!

Hello again everyone! Apologies for not updating recently. As you’ve already seen, the News Block posts have been ceased due to me not having enough time to make them for each day they come out. Even putting them in queues to be published on a schedule would be too much work on my own, so I will stick to what I do best; which is writing reviews, taking photographs, and recording videos!

I had recently made a trip to the Atlantis water park in Clarksville, Indiana (right across the bridge from my hometown, Louisville, Kentucky!) and shot some footage there, including POV’s which have already been posted to the Water Slide Database YouTube page. The review is still being worked on, so expect to have that coming very soon!

This weekend, I attended the annual Coastermania event at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio for the first time! One whole day of coaster riding with many other roller coaster enthusiasts! I had a very wonderful time, and took some very interesting pictures from there! It sure did make up for me having to miss out on Holiwood Nights annual roller coaster event at Holiday World this year. Hopefully I can attend one or both next year!

¬†While in Sandusky, I also had the chance of driving around the area to shoot exterior photographs of the Kalahari Resort (which I last visited in 2010), and made a visit to shoot exterior photos of Maui Sands Resort’s water park, which I have yet to visit, but would definitely love to plan one someday! Those photos are currently up on Flickr.com and will be on the website soon.

As I said, expect the Atlantis Clarksville water park review to be posted soon, and I might even throw in a trip report of Coastermania if I can!

Happy Sliding!
