The Millers set out with really high expectations for the day. They had been looking forward to seeing some quick-draw gunfights and maybe even some frillies in the cancan at the saloon. But alas times were changing, and the Wild West Park had a sign on the locked gates stating that the town was destined to be yet another Western ghost town, but the owners planned to reopen a new Space Park nearby where Little Green Men and Buck Rogers’ rock-shaped rollercoaster cars would feature.
Yes, the days of the Western were numbered, and all because of a little beeping ball the Russians had shot into space. For now, however, the day was a disappointing experience, even with ice cream and a coke on the way home.
