Did you catch a look at the funky picture Nathan took for the first week of our "Where-Are-We? Wednesday" contest?
Funky cropping, actually.
Here's the photo. Look familiar?
The challenge was to quickly identify and email us with the name of what the heck that is, along with where it is in the park.
We very quickly received more than 500 entries, many of them incorrect (sorry, this is not one of the birds at Eagle's Flight -- but good guess!).
Other top guesses were the Star Spangled Carousel and the Udderly Blue Ice Cream stand.
The entries came from states as varied as Iowa, Mississippi and Michigan, plus Canada.
But the winners (the first three correct answers) were from states we know quite well. Congrats to:
- Katharine S. of Murphysboro, Illinois
- Korri I. of Union, Kentucky
- Jennifer B. of Springport, Indiana
Congratulations to Katharine, Korri and Jennifer, who each knew this week's photo was a cropped seahorse eyeball:
This is the Dasher's Seahorses ride from Rudolph's Reindeer Ranch in our Christmas section.
This week's winners each receive two one-day tickets to use this season.
If you'd like to play, too, please sign up for our free newsletter. We'll send out another fun photo next Wednesday.

It's one thing to expect employees to be capable of operating equipment as befitting their job descriptions.
...but Gary had quite a "driving test" lined up for him last week.
As you may recall, we're adding a shade structure to the Wildebeest queue this season.
Crews are pouring the cement footers for the shade supports, but few jobs come without a challenge. Because of the remote location of the work, concrete is having to be ferried by the bucketful (or rather, front-end-loader-ful) around the Bahari Wave Pool and up into the queue at Wildebeest.
Witnessing Gary's steady hand coaxing the Bobcat up the ramp and down again in reverse was like watching someone thread a giant needle without even squinting. There was no spilled concrete and not even a scratch on the Wildebeest queue.
Wonder if he can parallel park that thing?
