Our Trip to Zombieland

When my wife and I went to the drive-in back in October of 2009 to see Zombieland, we both noticed something funny about the theme park at the end of the film they called "Pacific Playland". I had this funny feeling that I had been to the theme park as soon as the girls in the film arrived there. It wasn't until Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) climbed on to the wild mouse ride that we both blurted out "Wild Adventures!" We had been on that ride dozens of times, it's called Bug Out! or at least it was till the movie came out, because it's now called "Go Bananas!" So earlier this year we traveled back up to Valdosta, Georgia to see Lynyrd Skynyrd play for free at Wild Adventures and we took some comparison photos just for fun, here they finally are.

My shots are as close as I could get, I forgot to bring actual screen captures with me so I was shooting from memory. I have noticed that the must have done some digital manipulations, because it looks like rides have been digitally pushed around.

I think this is where Tallahassee finally gets his Twinkie.

Rattler is a pretty fun ride unless your running across the pad while its going! (Which would be impossible to do, because the floor drops down to a poit while the ride is running. Movie Magic)

Riding on Bug Out! They wouldn't let me take my shotgun on-board though?! It is still the funnest ride in the park with or without zombies.

A few shots of where the Hummer went in the lake.

Here is a couple shots of the Aviator that Woody Harrelson swings on while shooting zombies. I didn't grab a screen capture for this scene from the movie.

Here's a few for the Skynyrd fans!

Blueberry Blackberry Cobbler

I just realized I never posted my cobbler recipe that I promised Mr. Macabre I would. I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it's pretty tasty and easy to make. You can make it with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or even a combination of berries like I did here with this version of the recipe.

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed
3/4 cup sugar, divided
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons cold butter
3/4 cup buttermilk

In a large bowl, combine the berries, 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch,
lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Transfer to a 2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, lemon peel, baking powder, salt,
baking soda and remaining sugar; cut in butter until mixture
resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto blueberry mixture.

Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Pair with vanilla ice cream.

Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.
