    Cypress Gardens rediscovered!

    So yesterday I had the pleasure of exploring Cypress Gardens. It was my frist visit, and I will first admint that I am a sucker for "Old Florida Attractions." Personally I love to see things that are 'pre-Disney'

    I was pleasently suprised with the atmosphere, and really enjoyed the 'Old Florida Charm'

    I have pictures and videos of the park, hopefully you will see what was so charming about this great old Florida attraction!


    Heather in front of a pretty 'flower fountain'


    Beauty was everywhere!

    I love this!


    Two Belles!


    Beauty and the Beast (left to right)


    All the female Wallaby's had babies in their pouches! It was precious!




















    I love how the Belles just roam the park, quietly interating with guests!




    The Iconic picture spot!


    YAY!




    I am a GREAT driver!




    The amazing double decker carousel!


    You can call me Eric, or Mr. Suave! lol

    I will post some POV videos of some of the coasters, and the bumper car extravaganza!

    I hope you all enjoyed my camera phone look at Cypress Gardens!

    Hopefully you will be seeing more of this park, with an eye much more detailed than mine!

    Thanks for the TR. Looks like you had a relaxing day in a lightly visited park.

    I honestly felt like I had my own private theme park! It was CRAZY! But I really loved the gardens and the over all quite nature of the park!

    Personally I think I am going to get an AP.

    Re: Cypress Gardens rediscovered!

    I went to Cypress Gardens when I 3... back in 1978. My mom loves going there when she & my dad come down for the winter/spring. I'd like to go back and check out the gardens again sometime. I'm finally old enough to appreciate it now. LOL!

    It really is a GREAT value! Our ticket is $30.00 plus tax and you get a second day free!

    You really can't beat that! The park is really terrific!

    Nah. I just don't care for waterparks anymore. I liked them until I was around maybe 16.
