At the end of the summer I went to Six Flags with my friends. I love roller coasters, if they are not 400 feet tall. Many of you know heights are not my thing. So when I walked into the park and saw that almost all roller coasters were higher then 150 feet I got goose bumps. Lucky for me we went to the water park first. There were not many scary rides in the water park, but there were so many lines! Almost everywhere there was a 30 minute line. That is what we got for going on a saturday.
After a few rides we were trying to get food. I say trying because the people running the stand where we were buying food were not paying attention. There were multiple people yelling at them for their food. the line kept getting longer, and three people cut in front of me and took the chicken fingers that came up which I were waiting for. I had to finally tell one lady who took the chicken fingers I was reaching for that I had waited in line and she and three other people had just cut me and taken my food. She got mad and said that she can't believe how rude I was and gave me the chicken fingers in a rude manner. I was surprised how she thought I was rude when she had cut in front of me and literally reached over me to grab the chicken fingers I was trying to get.
After the chaos of getting food we went to the real park with all the roller coasters. As I pointed out before in my blog post I do not like heights. I had to be the one guy who passed on all the big roller coasters and wait 45 minutes until my friends were done.
There were a few roller coasters I went on. One was a 100 ft tall one that spun in circles on the way down a drop. This for me was not fun but I manned up enough to do it. I was lucky enough to be saved another hour because the line was anyways to long! I was very happy that instead we did another water one. This was a river rafting water ride. You were not supposed to get wet so we did not change for it. When we got on the water rafting ride a family stepped on and joined us. That family had one little boy that was 4 years old. He was afraid of getting wt but his parents told him that he would not get wet except for some splashes. On the ride there were a few water falls, luckily most of these missed us except for one. We got stuck on a little rock right as water started to fall above us, can you guess who got hit with a few gallons of water? The little 4 year old boy. It was extremely sad because the 4 year old was stuck under the water for about 5 seconds until we got lose again. Once we were back and got off the ride the 4 year old was shivering a crying. We gave the family a spare towel we had and walked off.
After the incident we went on a couple of rides but then decided to go home. It had been a long day and fun day but I was glad that it was over. Six Flags is a fun place to be with your friends, but it is the memories and stories you have after that is probably the best part of Six Flags.
