It is pronounced win-nuh-puh-soo-kuh, but most everyone calls it Lake Winnie. This small amusement park is officially in Georgia, but to get to it you drive through Tennessee. Normal for this area, but for a native Californian who has to drive hundreds of miles to a state line just to find the next city a hundred more miles away, this seemed a little odd. Also to get to it you had to drive down a two lane street lined with houses. I'm sure the residents must complain quite a bit about the traffic going to the business at the end of their road.
The park itself is pretty small, wrapped around a small lake, but offers a large number or carnival rides. They have a wild mouse, and a wooden rollercoaster called the Cannonball, which you can see in the video. Some of their rides are quite old. The antique car I was driving sounded like it was going to explode along the route. There is also a charlift that goes acoss the lake and back, but without a locking restraint system anyone daring enough can jump out to the lake below. I thought it odd you didn't get off at the other end. This is also home to an Old Mill flume ride. The tunnel the boats go through is pitch black, no animated scenes or anything, and the boat takes forever in there, so unless you have a girlfreind it can be quite boring. A quite enjoyable park. If you are ever in the area be sure to stop by.
