Hitting the base of the milk cans is a "no crap dummy" kind of thing or throwing the ball underhand and with a spin to get it into the milk can. I've known people who are just really good at Lagoon's games and would hit their season limit during pre season.

It's why I don't really view the games as being "rigged" in the traditional sense of the term - you can win them if you know how.  Yes, they're set up in such a way that adds a certain level of difficulty to them (i.e. in the "Shoot the hoops" style games, using a regulation-size basketball and a non-regulation size hoop, and then making you shoot from an odd angle to boot), but I'm sure that the people who run them would insist that they don't want to make the games too easy.

I used to work retail, and that's the term a couple of the ladies who worked the customer service desk and I used to use as well.  Of course, we'd usually just use it between ourselves and the kid in an effort to help keep the kid calm.  We'd find out the kid's name if they were old enough to communicate it (there was the occasional time where the kid would be a toddler just old enough to walk but not quite old enough to answer the question "What's your name?"), and then we'd get on the store PA system and say something along the lines of "Would the party of so-and-so please come to the customer service desk?"

Has any one played the King of Thrones game? It made my wife and I laugh walking past it last night.

Did anybody notice Drown the Clown near Opera House Square has been converted into two different games? It's now Wrecking Ball and Tubs Of Fun. Just wondered when it changed. The Drown the Clown sign is still up.

It changed a month or so ago. When Lagoon opened it was still the Clowns. 
Lagoon has been busy changing things up this year

It's been like 2 or 3 weeks since Drown the Clown disappeared.

Is the Tic-Tac-Toe game up near the employee kitchen new? I haven't been on the park for a month or so, but I swear I haven't seen that game before. Looked like it might be fun to try sometime.
