With hardly a whisper, Dreamland has finished another
butter smooth creation.
And once again Dreamland has pushed design boundaries further.
Dreamland is rad, super super rad.
They are unafraid to build it big and crazy. They are unafraid to build it right. They are unafraid to put up a 12'+ wall. How about a double pump bump in a quarter pipe? How about a mini cradle-like cave? Try the red rail, a perpendicular sibling of Newberg's dragon rail. It undulates side to side.
Here are a few preliminary photos.
The park is open. Congratulations to the City of Astoria and Dreamland.
