We started off in the little kids park and rode a few rides there.
First was the swings. Molly and Sophie really liked this one.
Henry thought it was a little too tame.
There were some hot air balloons to ride which made me a bit dizzy. Not only did they go up and down but also spun around too.
And just to make sure my head was fully aching. We had to go on a tea cup like ride where we went round and round and spun around too.
Molly had a great time but honestly my head started to hurt!
Henry was not happy with that coaster and really needed to give one of the big ones a try. He is my only dare-devil, death-defying kid. None of the others wanted anything to do with the big coasters and since my husband gets motion sick really easily. I was the default go on the rides with Henry person. I told Henry to pick one to start with. He decided to try Kong. This one hangs below the track and has a bunch of upside down loops and some cork screw like twists. He loved it!
They even ran into the 6 flags guy that helped us with our tickets. The school was supposed to send us our tickets and when they didn't arrive (the but school funds had been taken so we knew they had been purchased) we contacted this man to see about replacements. He came through for us and we got the tickets we needed to get into the park.
Henry and I did Kong and another coaster called the Boomerang which was a short coaster but once you went through it forward they reversed it and you went back through the twists and loops backward. Not nearly as fun as Kong but still filled the need of the thrill seeking Henry.
A dolphin show was next. When I was a kid we came to this park when it was called Marine World. I remember seeing the dolphins and killer whale shows.
We went to the Butterfly Garden
To finish off the day I told Henry we could do another coaster. He was debating if he wanted to do Medusa or Superman but when I said what about Sky Screamer he got really excited.
After our flight we were headed back to meet the others but saw there was no line for one of the other coasters and decided to quickly do that one as well. The Cobra was more of a traditional coaster. No loops but lots of quick twists ands ups and downs.
It was a lovely day at Six Flags. Great way to kick off the Summer. My kids seem to think Vacation has already started.
