So yesterday was Six Flags Marine World with my cousins. It was okay, not really had a blast. So when we (my cousins and me) got there, we went on couple of rides. I rode on Medusa with Michelle, and it was my first time. In line, I was about to chicken out, haha. Medusa was huge, here are some pictures:
Fifteen million dollars well-spent! Anyways, we wanted to go on Roar, but the lines were super long. So we went around the mini-games section and played around. I played that game were you wack the things that pop up with a huge hammer. There were about 7 other people playing, and my cousins just watched me. I was so close of winning, lol! This one guy won by 150 points, and I got only 140. I just needed to whack two more freakin' moles! So then we went to the mini-game where you squirt the target and a little bar rises when you aim correctly. I played with Jessica and Jamie. Jessica won =P and she got a stuffed animal. Yay! We later went to Roar. It was my 2nd time going on it, I remember Roar was my first ever roller coaster I have ever went on my entire life! I went on roar when I was 9 I think, lol. Here's a picture:
Couldn't get much of a general view of it. Just imagine a huge, gigantic, wooden roller coaster with many downhills, but no upside down loops or anything (my reason it was my first coaster). It was fun fun fun! Later we went to lunch. The lunch area was sooo tiny compared to Great America. It was like the size of my backyard! I went in to get a burger, some chili, and a Sprite. It was so crowded and we couldn't find a table (workers should really think about increasing the size and buying more tables). We sat on the grass to eat, better than nothing, haha. The bad thing was that Jessica got a grass stain, and she was wearing khacki (spelling?) pants! Poor Jessica, she just wrapped a sweater around her waist the entire time later. The food was yummy though. We watched a show later, forgot what it was called, but a show with a bunch of dolphins and whales doing some tricks. Quite boring, yet entertaining. We walked around later and went in some stores, bought some stuff. We then went to the baby place where they have bunch of little kid rides, whoo! Michelle, Jessica, Jamie, and I were actually small enough to fit in the rides! Too bad in some of them we were too tall to ride, haha. I rode on that little roller coaster which only goes around in a circle ONCE. The ride was only 10 seconds. The little kids thought it was an adventure though! Anyways...we also went in that ride, similar to the teacup ride in Disneyland. We ride in little cup-like figures and spin around. I got dizzy..haha. We also went on some other kid rides. We wanted to go home a little later, but before, we rode on some other roller coasters.
Next was V2 Vertical Velocity (I think that's what it's called). But I didn't ride on it. Too scared, haha! I watched Michelle and Jessica ride on it. Here are some pictures:
Doesn't look that scary, I know. But it was the greatest thriller ride in Six Flags (what I heard). There were 2 spikes, and this picture shows one of them. Then at the top of the spike, you just stay there for seconds, drop down super fast, and a bunch of twirls come next. Then it goes all crazy, haha. I think it's kind of similiar to Drop Zone in Great America..not sure which is scarier, haven't been on either (that's right, call me chicken all you want!).We wanted to go on Kong afterwards, but it was getting kind of late, so we headed home. I would have chickened out anyway, lol. Here's a picture of Kong, though:
So that was all! We did some other stuff, but I don't remember every detail. Just a summary. Great America is soooo much better! I love the roller coasters there, especially the water ones :) Can't wait to go next time. I'd also love to go with some friends, too. Aside from all the fun, school starts tomorrow! I need to quickly run to Walgreens and buy a few notebooks before it gets too late. Scared, but excited! Don't know what to expect. See ya there, Kelsey and Elizabeth. And also -insert other people I met here during orientation-.
