Clearly having lost my mind, I agreed to head over to Universal Studios Hollywood this week with Godson to check out the new King Kong 360 3-D attraction. I knew better than to hit the park in August because it's too hot and way too crowded to really enjoy, but King Kong is new and was calling our name.
And it was so worth it! What a great, all be it too short, 3-D larger than life movie, ride, whatever you want to call it-- It was cool.
After a long day at the park, Godson's mom picked him up from my house and had the following conversation.
Her: So how was Universal Studios today?
Him: (half asleep) Fine.
Her: Just fine? I thought you liked the zoo.
Him: (waking up) Theme Park, Mom. Theeeeme Park. No zoo.
Her: Was it crowded?
Her: (pulling his leg) Hogs, dogs and frogs everywhere, huh?
Him: (dead serious) Just people.
Her: I thought for sure there'd be dinosaurs.
Him: Only fake ones.
Her: Did you go on the new gorilla thing?
Him: King Kong 360-3D, it's huge, Mom. It's not a "thing".
Her: Did he bark?
Her: King Kong. Did he bark?
Him: (now fully awake) No, but the dinosaurs sneezed all over us. That was pretty cool.
Her: King Kong's a dinosaur?
Him: No, he's still a gorilla but there were dinosaurs too.
Her: Any pink ones?
Her: How about dancing girls? Any of those?
Him: Not at King Kong.
Her: Was Conan O'Brien there again?
Him: He got fired, don't you remember?
Her: So I guess that means the interview you did with him last time didn't go so well, huh?
Him: It wasn't my fault.
Note: This photo was taken at Universal Studios earlier this year when Conan had his brief stint on the Tonight Show. (NBC owns Universal Studios.) My guess is the wax figure of Conan is locked away in the basement somewhere.
Do you do amusement parks, roller coaster or the likes?
