Although Foxtrot has heard of the Call of Apples series, he's never had the chance to play any of them. "Sure, my skills might be a bit rusty though." He looks down at the paws he has equipped as part of his costume, "Then there are these things. Ah well, I'll give it a shot. Plus I heard they have decent food there."

Potato was literally hopping as they neared closer to the famed children's fun zone. "Yeah. They have french fries and... And... They have french fries!" Potato says, apparently only caring about french fries.

After a minute, Wacky's in sight. "Hey, guys, I'll race you there!" Potato says before dashing off in a starchy ball of weird childish delight.

As Potato Ponie dashes towards Wacky's, Foxtrot and Nivalia pick up their pace; although they're going faster, it's not by much. The unicorn slow down a bit to fix his mask, then continues to keep pace with Nivalia. "So Niv, I gotta ask. Where did you find this guy?" He glances to the caped pony as he nears the door. "I've come across some interesting characters in my life but he''s uh... Not who I would expect you to be travelling with."

Nivalia looks over to Foxtrot as the two continue towards the building, "Yea, he is different... Quite different actually." The mare pauses, a small smile appearing on her face. "I ran into him outside of Ponyville. He's nice; plus I'm always walking around with a python so I can't really say anything. Can you try to get along with him? I don't want to have to split up any fights."

Foxtrot nods, "Yea I know. I wasn't bothered by it just... caught off guard. Your last coltfriends were nothing like hi-OW!" The stallion flinches as his sister punches him on the shoulder.

"He's not my coltfriend!" Nivalia hastily whispers before returning to his normal tone. "He is simply a friend of mine who I assist with certain ventures."

"Uh huh, yea that's exactly it." Foxtrot flatly replies, a tone of sarcasm in his voice. "Did he woo you in with his cape of mystery?" The unicorn let's out a light chuckle before once again being punched in the same spot, "Ah jeez Niv! Relax will ya?"

"Hmph!' The mare scoffs as the two finally reach the entrance, "Well here we are, just one moment." Nivalia opens her bag, making sure Caprica is still sleeping snugly inside before closing it again, "Alright, I'm ready to go."

Potato is too busy racing off to hear any of Niv and Fox's conversation, though he would also deny being Niv's coltfriend."Cooooome on guys!" Potato impatiently says as he reaches the door of Wacky's and the others are still behind. Once the pair are at the door with him Potato says in an excited voice "Ok then, lets go!" and opens the door.

Or, he tries to open the door at least, but finds it locked. Potato is confused at first. But then, he notices the closed sign on the door. It was Saturday. Wacky's was closed on Saturdays... Potato turns around and looks at Nivalia and Fox with a sad look on his face. A look of crushed dreams. A look of happiness destroyed. And, most importantly, a look of denied french fries.

Foxtrot looks at the sign, then at the building itself in silence before looking to the others, "That's... what? Th- that's a terrible business practice right there. Do you realize  how much money a kids entertainment center would get for being open on saturday? A lot. Wow I'm actually kind of disappointed. I mean, not the fact that's closed for us, but it's closed in general. I mean... really?" He shrugs, "I don't know, maybe I'm getting too worked up over it." He trots over to the window and peers inside, "What a waste."

Nivalias ears fold back at the sound of the news, "Oh it's closed? That's terrible." She looks over to Potato Ponie, "Was there anywhere else you wanted to go? Or perhaps you want to break and enter?"

Foxtrot turns around and gives Nivalia a rather cross look, "Breaking in? Really Niv that's an option?"

The mare rolls her eyes, "Oh stop acting like a total saint Fox, we both know the stunts you pulled back in the day were much worse. Besides I'm only listing our options, not condoning or endorsing either of them." She looks to the building, the inside much darker without the many lights. "So what's the plan then?"

"Well we're not breaking in. I am still a superhero." Potato sadly says. He then lets out a long, rather depressing sigh. "Its fine, I guess. I just, you know, never really been to one of these kinds of places." Potato then adds, motioning to Wacky's.

Potato lets out another sigh as he trots away. "I'll just be over here..." PoPo then proceeds to walks into a corner and put his head in it. It then started to rain on Potato, and only Potato, as a pegasus on a cloud above him was jumping on the cloud, giggling as they made it rain on the already sad superhero.

Foxtrot pulls out his guitar and slings it over to the pegasus over Potato Ponie, knocking them out of the sky and dropping them onto the ground, "Jerk." The unicorn walks over to the caped pony and offers a hoof, "C'mon buddy, you can't let this get to you. Was there anywhere else you wanted to check out? I mean, we can sneak in if you really wanted to."

"We're not gonna sneak in Fox, give it a rest." Nivalia interjects right after. "How about we go somewhere else?" Her ears perk up as she gets an idea, "Oh! I know the museum is having a few special exhibitions this month?"

"How much is it?" Foxtrot asks as he trots over to his guitar and plucks it from the ground.

Nivalia taps her hoof for a moment, "With us three it would cost 157 bits. However, I have a pass that can get us all in for free." She walks over to the caped pony, what do you think Potato?"

The ten year old pegasus that was making it rain on Potato ran away crying as he was knocked to the ground. Great. You just made a ten year old cry. You monster.

Potato sighs as he takes Fox's hoof. "Yeah, I guess we can go to the museum." Potato says as Niv suggests it, not too enthused about the idea.

Foxtrot walks over to his musical instrument and picks it up, smiling with the knowledge that his aim was still that good. "The museum sounds good I suppose. Always interesting to see what new exhibits they have. I recall one with medieval era technology, rather strange but... well, strange."

Nivalia rolls her eyes at the two stallions and their remarks about a learning opportunity like this. "Oh c'mon, it'll be fun! I love going to museums, aquariums, zoos, and observatories amongst others. I mean, you have fun while learning! Why aren't there more of these places in existence?"

Foxtrot interjects, "Maybe it's because... I got nothing. I like going to those two; our parents took us to them all the time when we moved throughout the years." He looks over to Nivalia with a smirk, "Remember when we went to the Baltimare Aquarium? You had that giant stingray that kept circling around the pool to you?"

Nivalia chuckles, "Oh my goodness everytime he came around he acted like he's never seen me before. Then every time I pet him he would look up and flap his big old fins around. Then he would slide off around the pool like it was the best thing in the world... It was adorable though." The mare begins trotting at a rather brisk pace down the street towards the center of Canterlot, "Let's get going guys! The exhibits await!"

Potato trots after Nivalia. "Do they have anything cool there? Like, Phoenixes or Nemean Lions?" Potato asks as he follows Niv. "Its been a while since I've seen any really cool animals." Potato adds, seeming to cheer up a bit at the prospect of "cool" animals.

Foxtrot follows Nivalia and Potato Ponie as they make their way towards the museum, "I'm sure they have a few exhibits that features some creatures. I'm looking forward to the astrological displays as well as nature, it was there that I learned that plants and trees keep soil in place, without it, mudslides would occur all the time." He turns to the mare, "I know the museum has their usual displays, but don't they change their special exhibits every few months?"
