The top deck of the Mark Twain provides a nice elevated vantage point; it seems that most people with cameras could not resist snapping as many photos as possible from up there. Many left the ride suffering from severe and painful Shutter Finger.
Here's one view, while still at the loading area; there's Rainbow Ridge to our left, and Casa de Fritos to our right. The castle is in the distance, while the Matterhorn-less Skyway can be seen in the distance. That ovoid grassy area is a nice oasis of green - long gone of course.
Looking a bit to the right of the first picture we can see the Golden Horseshoe building. It looks like it might be a chilly day, judging by the sweaters and overcoats... that ice cream vendor probably had slow sales. Notice the other two grassy parks (one to the left, one to the right)!
