Please tell me they gave that baby a cool name related to her place or situation of birth.

  I have a relative with the initials VW because he was born in one. 

The baby is still unnamed, but our group has taken to calling her Balluna (get it? Balloon-a). We'll see what they pick- the next before she was born, they were at the book store flipping through baby name books.

Wow what a couple of stories!

Someone asked me later in the night if I really did spill my bladder or if I was just making it up. Clearly they weren't close enough to the truck when they asked.

I'm sad to say- it's true. It's ALL true.

Best I could think of was Airiel ?!  But then at some point someone probably would call her Hot Airiel.

Here’s an article on the Balloon Baby:

I’m “sad” to say, they went with a non-balloon name with Cecelia.

Doug, loving the TR.  Not good to show my wife, as we were supposed to go this year, but work stepped on our plans.

 

Also, really enjoy your website.  I stumbled upon it about 3 months ago.  I thought the rig looked familiar, then I saw the bike rack and the steps and had to do a quadruple take....then I saw a hyperlink in the signature.  That probably would've been the easiest place to look, but I guess I was distracted by a good TR.

Cecilia?

What kind of name is that for a balloon baby?

The mom has a cool Fort name: Clementine.

That gets me to wondering- has there ever been a baby born at the Fort?

You would think over all of the years it's been open there would half to have been a few.

I know that people have died at the Fort.  But, they take them off property before pronouncing them dead.

And, I think you're right- odds are that there have been some babies born.  I haven't ever heard of one, though.  It would be easier at the Fort than Clementine had it at the balloon festival.

I tried a Google search and got a wide variety of responses, but the closest was an elephant born at AK.

There were various reviews of the Fort, and a couple articles about the boy who got hit by the bus, but nothing about birthin babies.

I think management needs to have more foresight. How are they going to keep the Haunted Mansion stocked if they take everyone away?
