Derby #196: Amusement Parks

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

The weather's getting warmer and those weird coupons are showing up on the sides of soda cans, which can mean only one thing: it's almost time for theme park season! Whether you're in it for the thrilling coasters, the costumed mascots, or the funnel cake and turkey legs it's one of the happiest times of year for anyone within driving distance of a park. So before you pack up the sunscreen and sandwiches and pay $25 for parking, whip up a shirt design that captures the majesty, fun, and memories of amusement parks. Whether it's the rides, the rigged games, the Band-Aid in the wave pool, or just the super-pumped kids bouncing in the back seat on the way there, show us your take on American amusement. Of course to ride the Derby you must follow at least this many rules:

No pop culture references. At all.
Incidental text only.
If you need a sound effect or something, fine. Otherwise, let your art do the talking.
No zombies.
For a good long while.
