Wannado City Details 

It's pretty hard to describe Wannado City.
It's a theme park for kids set up as a kid-sized city. It included a mini-Publix supermarket, police station, fire station, salon, courthouse, fair, pizza parlor, and lots more.
Kids earn play money for pretend jobs while their parents wear out their shoes trying to keep up. Parents and kids are tagged with bracelets that allow everyone to track each other at special kiosks. Kids can not get out of the city without the adult(s) they came in with. I was very comfortable with that security in place.
At first, I sat in the adult's lounge and played with this site (see previous post). Unfortuantely, they only had about four Macintosh computers set up and I am not fond of Macs. It took some time getting used to using it.

Then I wandered back into the city and tried to take some camera shots with my phone.
The phone's getting a bit annoying, too. I'd rather not use all that memory for lots of pictures, so I'd mail them to myself and then delete them. Unfortunately, some of the shots never arrived in my mailbox.
Gone forever.

I was a bit surprised to see a "serious looking" accident at the Publix-
Example

The picture didn't come out great since I was taking it through a window. Same with some of the other shots, like this one of Alex getting her nails done-
Example

While Alex was in the Plantation General Hospital Emergency Room (playing doctor) another group of EMTs barged through with yet another accident victim-
Example

It's really sorta surreal to see all of these kids running around pretending to be crime scene investigators, firemen or cops. Once an hour, or so, the fireworks factory would go up in flames and a new crew of fighters would roll in on a mini-fire truck and hose down the blaze.
Marc's friend Tommy showed me the citation he'd recieved by a cop. The ticket included such infractions as: chewing gum, running, loitering (which I can't imagine happening), and wearing loud clothes! Both Marc and Tommy tried hard to get thrown in jail so they could make a jail break. Yup... they built the jail with a couple of rubber bars so the kids could squirm out and escape!
When Marc got finally hungry, he made himself a pizza. Dad had to pay real US dollars, for that treat-
Example

The kids got to spend five "Wongas" for tickets to ride the kiddie rides at the city fair. When we left the place, Marc still had 150 wongas in his bank account and Alex had 160 wongas. They promise that the money will remain there until our next visit.
This place, at the Sawgrass Mills Mall, is going to put Junior Achievement out of business. Kids learn a bit about lots of different jobs, and how to save and spend money. Of course, at $25 bucks a pop for the kids and $15 bucks for me, we won't be going back all that frequently.

Damn! I only wish we had a place like this to go to when I was a kid!
