On Saturday, John and I took a trip down to Six Flags (I know, I've been going a lot lately! LOL).
(John had gotten a Season's Pass too and he needed to get his new card by the end of this season in order to get the Gold Member status for next year.)
So Friday night, McKayla went to spend the weekend with Aunt Leslie and John and I woke up early on Saturday to head down to Atlanta. We got there about 10:30 but didn't get to actually ride any rides until almost 12 b/c they said it was 'too cold'. The coasters are rated at a certain speed and when they're cold, they'll go faster than is safe. So they have to wait til the temp is right and then do test runs and THEN allow passengers on board. My question tho: if they have to do empty test runs anyway, why not test run AND warm up the tracks at the same time?
We rode the Sky Bucket first, b/c it was one of the only ones running, then "The Great American Scream Machine" (and were actually the first to ride!), "Superman" (my favorite), "Ninja" (made me sick this time. oops!), "Goliath" and "Georgia Cyclone".
Of course with it being October, Fright Fest was still in full swing. Add that with it being the LAST weekend they were open for the season and you get a mad house affect. There were people EVERYWHERE. We ended up spending all day there (left about 10:30pm) and even though we didn't ride a lot of rides, we still had a lot of fun. It was nice just being with John (cue the mushy-gushy music LOL).
Here, have a look at the few pictures I managed to take all day long. :-D
Now onto the explanation for my title (if you were paying attention LOL):
Notice the snake in the above picture. John won that for me at one of the games. He was aiming to win the giant Scooby for me but broke only 2 of the 3 required plates. He told me later that I was lucky he broke even the 2 LOL
After riding Georgia Cyclone, I went to put my hair back up in the banana clip when I knocked it out of my mouth and it went bouncing down the exit ramp and over the railing to the bottom. If that's the only thing I lose while there, I'm happy! :-)
Be ready for my Six Flags posts coming up next year. With me, John, Aunt Leslie AND Kathleen all having Season Passes, you KNOW we'll be going a lot! :-D
