Not too many people knew the answer to this question:


There were lots of guesses when we posted this on social media, but only a handful knew the answer.

Stormin’ Norman’s Tank Tag

Wow, that was a long time ago. Tank Tag was a life-sized game. Climb in a tank and try to hit targets with your bucket of balls. Temporarily disable the other tanks or even soak them with water.

It was crazy to watch.

Surely we have an old photo somewhere; for now, though, all I’ve got is this clip from our 1992 brochure:

Above is sort of a split screen showing one of the tanks on the left and the “shooting gallery” safely located on the other side of the fence.

Five years later, we replaced Tank Tag with the Alamo restaurant. But the little Tank Tag building remained.

Over the years, it’s served as a Height Measurement Station, a storage building, and – most recently – a Churros stand.

For the 2018 season, though, we’re shaking things up a bit.

Lemon Shake-Ups building

A Lemon Shake-Up is a freshly squeezed, made-to-order lemonade.

The “shake up” is in reference to the mixing process.

So fun to watch and so good to drink.
