This post brought to mind my second visit to BGE. My mom was not disabled, but she was a heavy woman and didn't get around well on the rare occasions we went to parks together. We rented her an electric vehicle. The rudimentary lesson in operating it didn't take. She hit that first down slope and couldn't slow down. People were literally jumping out of the way as my nephew and I ran after her. I still don't know to this day two things:

A..how she managed to stop it.

B..how she managed NOT to end up in the water.

Thanks for the memories, Daniel.

You should try the San Diego Zoo. The slopes are completely unnavigable. It is a chore for able bodied people to walk through.

I have tried the San Diego Zoo when my wife was in a wheelchair. Also the San Diego Wild Animal Zoo Safari Park when my dad was in a wheelchair. Neither was much of a picnic. Although the latter doesn't have any hills that even come close to the zoo's, they have some sneaky slopes that you may not notice till you let go and turn your back, and hear your loved one screaming from a bit farther away then they're supposed to be...
