then we'll   be entering africa cool okay and then like all  through the park or these things called rideables   um and it says 33 cents a minute and you ride  them like a bike but they're motorized scooters   so if you have trouble walking on the trails   you can ride these things that look like animals  all day if you want to hop off hop on maybe one   day i'll do a rideable and vlog but i don't know  i've seen people writing them i'm like oh my god   but they're called ridables so if you can't walk  you can rent this motorized scooter bike thing   so yeah before part two and we enter
