Kids have their rides, adults have theirs. What about old people? And for that matter, what about pregnant women and people with bad hearts? Try these attractions:
Geriatric Park
The Not-Very-Scary Ride
Bobbing for Dentures

And of course
Stroll Down Memory Lane, featuring robots performing such tasks as walking to school uphill both ways, in 6 feet of snow without shoes or pants while carrying a Himalayan Yak; reliving old stories about the Navy; making moonshine in tubs and eating drywall.

Of course you would need a nice old gift shop for the nice old folks. [sdm, Aug 31 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       My grandma would enjoy that greatly. Especially the "Bobbing for Dentures" ... if they got to keep the dentures, that would be an exceptionally exciting experience.

       Good idea. I once went on a virtual rollercoaster ride and sat next to an 84 year old man. He grasped his chest and told me to make it stop. But he'll never forget those few moments of excitement and I'm sure I won't either. I just hope I'm as adventurous when I'm that age.   

       And I'd like to thank the person who invented the emergency stop button heh.

       1 extra fluffy croissant comin' right (back) up at Dentureland!
I hope I'm that adventurous when I'm 91 myself. They have emergency stop buttons for virtual rollercoasters?

       Judging by the link showing a Hay Fork, it seems these folks enjoy pain.
