After spending over $200, I knew I just needed to get over it, and have fun. It's the place Travis had memories going to when he was a kid. I knew the boys would have memories.
Words of Advices:
- Bring food in a backpack, or cooler lunch bag. Fill a cooler for the car with food. You can leave, and come back into the park with tickets. Cars are parked a ways away, but they do have shuttles that go back and forth.
- Bring a fanny pack. I have one, but it was in Omaha, Nebraska - at home.
Let's Talk Rides:
I'll go on water rides. I really enjoy the raft one because we're all together, can talk, and we don't know who will get wet.
I started talking to a family that was waiting for their family to get done. They understood me. It's sad when complete strangers gets you, but your own family doesn't even try.
One lady said, "The lookout part isn't any better than the coaster!" I could see her point. It was high up, and not sturdy. At least it wasn't jerking you around up and down hills!
A little boy sat there. I said, "Have you gone on this?" He said, "Never again!" He said it was way more than he could handle. He felt sorry for any kid that went on it.
A 18 month old cried every time the roller coaster took off. It was a loud plunging noise, and a fire showed up. I felt for him!
I waited about 4 times for my family. Keep in mind that with roller coasters I feel like the car could roll on off the track. I pictured my family leaving me each and every time they went on. Not so fun!
I didn't think things could get worse, oh but they could. I waited in line for the train ride around the park. I said, "Go on that roller coaster that you missed going on. I'll wait in line."
I texted Travis: Line is moving fast now. I hope you're coming.
Travis texted back: It was such a fast line. We went again.
I texted again 5 minutes later: Ok so I'm letting other people go ahead of me in line because you're not here. I don't know how long I can do this!
Finally he got there even 5 more minutes later. I was super annoyed!
When it was time to leave we were in a hurry. We had reservations for a magic show, and still needed to eat dinner. I was thinking, We wouldn't be in a hurry had you come to the train line after one ride on that last roller coaster.
I said, "Let's take a shuttle." Well none of us paid attention where we parked. We walked up to the park. I was only guessing as to what shuttle took us where we needed to go. It took us closer to the car than if we walked, but farther than where our car actually was.
Travis said, "See if we would have walked..." I said, "We are walking. The shuttle just took us most of the way to our car." I was fuming mad by that time. Of course they were all wondering why I was mad.
What rides do you like to go on? Have you ever have a vacation that is perfect, and no one has fought?
