Rave Bongo



Rave Bongo is a device in our local mall which ties kids to ropes and allows them to bounce 20-30 feet into the air safely. Except for the weekends, it is usually not very busy (cf. the operator in the first photo).

Sounds very exiting. Can the grown ups like us do it too?

Even though it's for kids, I bet I'd like it, too. Of course, I just a big kid (or should I say OLD kid). Nice shots.

I'm glad we don't have one here because my grandson would be begging to get on it every time he saw it!

I want his job! I'm sure I could keep busier than he is too. I mean, who wouldn't with potential fun like that at your fingertips.

I don;t like the look of all those ropes. I hope no one gets hurt there.

Thanks for the visits again.

About your question on the Carnival Cruise Ships Funnel- All of the Carnival's Ships has the same style funnel unlike other cruise line. It is something like there trademark. If you see the red and blue whale tail funnel, no doubt it is a Carnival ship.

I had to do a little research on why they all have the whale funnel and the response I received was that, " It looks like a whale's tail so it's in the mood when these ships go into Alaska waters and whales are spotted. Passengers are told that the whales surface because they think the ship is another whale and wish to show off. Completely false but then again it's a promo speech"

This is the answer we received from a forum we work online http://www.webanswers.com/travel/cruises/why-does-the-funnel-on-carnival-cruise-line-ships-look-like-a-whale-s-tail-0e0469
