Visit the ‘End of the Earth with Antarctic explorers

Visit the ‘End of the Earth with Antarctic explorers

Chill out this summer with a museum exhibit that will take you to one of the coldest places on Earth, the Antarctic.

The “Race to the End of the Earth” exhibit, which will open Saturday at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City,  recounts the 1911-12 contest to be the first to reach the South Pole.

Norwegian Roald Amundsen and Britain’s Royal Navy Capt. Robert Falcon Scott undertook 1,800-mile journeys from the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf to the Pole and back. Their choices when preparing their teams for the contest spelled the difference between triumph and tragedy.

Hands-on activities will help visitors understand what it would have been like to travel to the Antarctic a century ago, as well as what it is like to conduct research there today.

Photographs, paintings, and historical artifacts from the Amundsen and Scott expeditions will place visitors in the midst of Antarctic exploration and research. There will be life-sized models of portions of Amundsen’s and Scott’s base camps; a landscape that transports visitors to the frigid, windswept South Pole; and a diorama featuring the largest penguin species that survives today, the emperor penguin.

Three of Scott’s team members took a dangerous five-week expedition, called “the worst journey in the world” by expedition member Apsley Cherry-Garrard, to recover eggs from the emperor penguin for scientific study.

Among the interactive portions of the exhibit will be a personality test that visitors can take to see how they might fare in an extreme environment during long periods of isolation.

Info: Museum admission plus a ticket to the exhibit total $24 for adults; $18 for students and seniors; and $14 for children. The museum is at Central Park West at 79th St., New York City; (212) 769-5250. The “Race to the Ends of the Earth” exhibit runs through Jan. 2, 2011.

Luna Park reveals rides for new Coney Island amusement park

Luna Park reveals rides for new Coney Island amusement park

Luna Park opens Memorial Day weekend with new rides and renewed promise that New York City officials hope signals the return of Coney Island to its glory days.

With 23 rides on six acres of city-owned land at the former Astroland site, Luna Park joins the legendary Cyclone wooden roller coaster, the iconic Wonder Wheel and Nathan’s famous hot dog stand in the latest effort to revitalize and reinvigorate New York City’s best known playground.

The city plans to invest $150 million on infrastructure improvements at Luna Park, which takes its name from the original amusement park that operated at Coney Island from 1903 to 1946.

Italian ride manufacturer Zamperla, which supplies theme park giants such as Disney, Universal Studios and Six Flags, promises to use Luna Park as a testing ground for its newest cutting-edge attractions.

 

The first phase of the project is to open on Saturday, May 29, with 19 rides, mostly of the whirl-n-hurl carnival variety.

A second phase, scheduled for 2011, will add four thrill rides, including a human slingshot and two roller coasters (a suspended flyer and a motorcycle-themed ride), according to Screamscape.

The 19 opening-day rides:

Thrill rides
* Air Race: Simulates the experience of fighter pilots, sending riders flipping upside-down and generating up to 4 Gs of force.

* Electro Spin – A rocking, spinning Disk’O ride that travels up and down a half-pipe.

* Brooklyn Flyer – A 100-foot-tall tower swing ride.

* Eclipse – A spinning pendulum swing that sends riders 50 feet up in the air.

Roller coasters
* The Tickler – Spinning coaster cars travel along a classic Wild Mouse track.

* Lunar Express – A family coaster with traditional mine car trains.

Family rides
* Beach Shack – A dipping and tilting hurricane-style spinning ride with a seaside theme.

* Coney Tower – Bounce up and down from heights of 40 feet.

* Coney Island Sound – Another tower bounce ride.

* Kite Glider – Lay down in a gondola and fly like a hang glider on a double-oscillating wave-like spinning ride.

* Lynn’s Trapeze – A classic flying carousel swing ride featuring images of historic Coney Island.

* Surf’s Up – Riders stand up on a giant spinning surfboard on an undulating half-pipe track.

* Wild River – A 40-foot-tall log flume water ride.

* Balloon Expedition – Soar up to 40 feet high in a hot air balloon gondola.

Kiddie rides
* Mermaid Parade – A pint-sized log flume with a theme based on the annual Coney Island parade.

* Circus Train – A train ride for the little ones.

* Happy Swing – A giant swing that looks like an oversized swing set.

* Tea Party – Kids control the spinning speed of their own teacup.

* Speed Boat – A themed spinning ride with boats that leap over waves.

The Best Pancakes in America

As a child, we become huge fans of those fluffy, soft, golden-brown pancakes served during breakfast. What joy it is to lather the thick, gleaming syrup, watching it cascade over stacks of pancakes. And who has not tried making one? Misshapen pancakes forced to other family members, we have great memories of our first tries in making these delicious cakes. And if youve managed to let a pancake fly as you tried flipping it over in the pan, then welcome to the happy and huge club of pancake aficionados. Dont worry though, as there are lots of places to try them.

Chosen for their creativity, toppings and filling, here are some of the best places in America where you can satisfy your cravings for this simple yet delightful cake which, though it has been enhanced, flavored, and changed in countless ways, remains everybodys favorite.

The Farmers Diner in Quechee, Vermont

The Best Pancakes in America

Founder Ted Murphys mantra is “food for here,” so they only get the best-and freshest-ingredients from local farms. Organic lovers will surely delight in this place and their organic, wheat flour buttermilk pancakes, served with Vermont maple syrup and Cabot butter. Its a quaint, retro-style diner which will appeal to many. And if you think thats not enough, you can also order Vermont Liberty Tea Companys fruit-lavender brew. When its harvest season, Champlain Orchards cold apple cider will surely quench your thirst. Nothings as fresh and clean as this. For sides, you can try Vermont Smoke and Cure ham steak, or maple sausages.

Stanley in New Orleans

The Best Pancakes in America

Along Jackson Square in the French Quarter is a new eatery. You will surely be charmed by the soda fountain counter, where you can swing your legs while sitting on the swivel stool, waiting for your stack of pancakes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and Steens cane syrup-the local sweetener that has that molasses kick. And since youre in New Orleans, if you can, order the Eggs Stella-soft shell crabs on top of poached eggs with Creole hollandaise. The best sides are Bloody Mary and that spicy bowl of P&Js oyster, shrimp, and andouille sausage gumbo.

Hawaiian Style Café in Big Island, Hawaii

The Best Pancakes in America

Want the biggest pancakes? This place will give it to you. In the town of Waimea, locals love this place for their Loco Moco-hamburger patties over rice, with grilled onions, fried egg and gravy. Naturally, the serving is huge as well. All items on the menu can be lathered with gravy or paired with a fried egg, including the Pancake Sandwich which is the size of a platter-two-stack pancakes with whipped butter and coconut syrup. For other must-tries, go for the fried rice, Spam and Portuguese sausages.
