Saturday, April 10th marked the park's grand opening ceremony.
We were there to experience it and get our first look at the park.
Check out this 2 part special report about Morgan's Wonderland by a local news station, KSAT 12
About ten thousand other folks were there for the grand opening along with us.
Some of those who participated in the opening ceremonies were Actress and wife of Spurs Basketball player Tony Parker - Eva Longoria-Parker, and former Spurs Basketball great David Robinson.
The park opened its gates to all us visitors at 6pm.
Before that, we lined up in front of the main visitor's center.
Some Star Wars Characters were there, too.
Darth Vadar even posed with Josh for this picture:
One of the first things we checked out in the park was a off-road adventure ride.
Here was Josh waiting in line to get on the ride (see the jeep cars behind him. They are loading a guest who is in a wheelchair into that one).
Josh insisted he wanted to be in the driver's seat.
we made it to the finish line :)
Josh tested out the remote control pirate ships
and the water canons
and before we headed out,
we played in the water works area
the lines were very long (with all those people there) to ride the train or check out some of the other great features. So, we are planning to sign up for a return visit, when the park will be a little less crowded.
The great thing is, it does not cost anything for Josh to go to the park (because he has special needs) and it should only cost those of us accompanying him $5 each.
