1. Ride The Elephant At The San Antonio Zoo

Yes, it's a good thing you can't do this anymore, because of animal cruelty and all, but damn was it fun when you could.

2. Ride The Brackenridge Park Skyride

They need to bring back the Hemisfair-era skyride, like, yesterday.

3. Horseback Swimming At Brackenridge Park

Not only were you able to ride horses in San Antonio's iconic park, you apparently could go swimming with them as well.

4. Ride the Brackenridge Park Paddle Boats

Basically, Brackenridge Park used to be a lot more fun.

5. Spend All Day At Jungle Jim's Playland

Every local 80s and 90s kid remembers riding those spaceships.

6. Alternatively, Spend All Day At Discovery Zone

The other 90s-era indoor playland. Remember that infectious commercial?

Ride The Rocket At Playland Park

Yes, San Antonio had an amusement park before Fiesta Texas, and it had a roller coaster and everything.

8. Pop 4th Of July Fireworks In The City Limits

This was before a tragic accident on New Year's Eve, 1992, when a bottle rocket struck a girl in the head and killed her.

9. Badass Barbecues At Tacoland

RIP Ram.

10. Go Fishing At The Lone Star Brewery

The Lone Star Brewery's new owners need to bring this back.
