Sandy Lake Amusement Park

Today was the annual Anchor Fabrication company picnic, and this year they decided to hold the event at a more central DFW location since Anchor now has 4 other sister companies to celebrate with, so we ended up at Sandy Lake Amusement Park in Carrollton. I had never been there before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It felt sort of like stepping back in time a little bit. All of the carnival rides were the old school type that still travel to various parking lots of small town fairs. There were pony rides and an arcade and putt putt golf. They have a beautiful train that you can ride around the park. Lunch was included in the picnic, and we were given yellow wristbands that were good for unlimited games and rides from 2:00-5:00 pm. Of course we were welcome to buy tickets to ride outside of that time frame, but we opted to save our money and wait for 2, much to Kate's dismay.

She had a blast on the various rides and even tried a couple that I knew she was unsure of, but I really knew she would enjoy. I think she rode the carousel 4 or 5 times (they are her favorite) and she and Nick played a round of putt putt. Kate claims that she won.
The weather got a little bit warm but it wasn't completely unbearable, thanks to lots of shade trees, so we enjoyed our day a lot. Kate asked as soon as we got in the car when we could come back, so I guess that means she had a great time!

Sandy lakes Amusement park is a park that offers the visitors to enjoy what a great setting of train and shaded rides. Its a cool calm and fun places. All age group members are equally entertained through it. I personally have visited it before my us tours. Carnival rides and paddle boat are one of my favourite.
