Double-Decker Bus with Dummies

The double-decker bus windows have been painted over so you can't see inside. Also, the gate to the park is closed, so you can't walk around it or the park. Shame, because the park looks so cool! And there's a great place to let kids play in some water fountains behind the amusement park.

The "Double-Decker Bus with Dummies" -- the best feature of this attraction, is apparently gone, since the bus windows have been painted over. But there are still fiberglass statues and retro elements throughout the small park.
