Amusement Park Bingo: Blog-a-thon Day 2

So there I was, merrily walking through the turnstile of Universal Studios Florida when I was assaulted by so many different stimuli. That’s actually a total understatement. Walking into an amusement park is like when people do full immersion programs in a non-English speaking country. So, because people got a good giggle out of my Barnes & Noble bingo post (which you can read here) I have decided, with the assistance of my parents, to create an Amusement Park Bingo.
