Chihuly Garden and Glass, featuring colorful glass art created by Dale Chihuly, has finally opened at the base of the Space Needle.
The exhibit replaces children's rides in the area known as the Fun Forest on the 50th anniversary of the center, and Dori is extremely unimpressed.
"I'm just sick of how out of touch people have taken the city of my youth and turned it into their vision of adult snobbery and that's what bugs me the most," Dori laments.
"Do you know how much it would cost me to take my wife and girls if in a billion years any of us wanted to go look at glass art? If I want to look at glass art, I'll look at many of the fine shops."
Dori went down to the Fun Forest for one final farewell during the exhibit's groundbreaking last summer.
Would you rather take a ride in the Gravitron or stand around looking at glass?
"For 15 bucks they should give you one of those old softballs from the midway and let you bust a few of the things," Dori says.
