Florida’s original theme park

It was great to finally make it to Florida’s original theme park.

The best part was the price — free!

Well, sort of …

Cypress Garden predates Disney World (and all the other Orlando area parks) but is now part of a larger theme park, the latter of which we did have to pay to get into.  And well worth the price I may add, too.  Retaining the garden added a welcome historic and natural element that weaved through and complemented the rest of the park.

Can you guess the park’s new name?
