As far as having an event in my life that I will never forget, yes I most defiantly have had an event like that. My first trip to six flags; it was beyond fun, embarrassing, but yet so comical.
My dad decided he wanted to take a summer vacation with six other people that are not including me and my dad, so that’s a total of eight people.
It was July 2004. It was one very hot summer. The trip was long and there was not enough room in the vehicle. I had a friend with me. We had been friends since I was three years old and she was four. The whole way to six flags we snacked and giggled about the most ironic things. Since we were so young and immature I’m 100% positive that we annoyed the adults.
When we finally arrived at our destination, which was our hotel. We didn’t bother unpacking at that exact moment because we were running out of daylight, and we wanted to go explore the rides and all the fun stuff. We didn’t ride any rides that day. We just walked around and got familiar with the place. We ate our dinner and went back to the hotel.
The following day we woke up bright and early. We ate our breakfast, and off to the rides we went. I was too scared to ride any roller coaster or any scary rides. My friend was always the brave, and I always got called the “chicken”. It didn’t bother me much because I knew I was being a chicken. Later that evening we went to white waters. I love water but not the heights. My dad made me ride this really big water slide, and of course I cried from the bottom of the stairs till the time I got on the ride. It was scary but the time I got to the end of the ride I was grinning from ear to ear.
The next morning we all woke up and went and had breakfast. Then went back to our room and packed our stuff, and on the road we went. We were home in no time. It seemed as if it took was longer to get there then it took us to get home. That was one of the most exciting events I have ever experienced. Not only was it fun and exciting because of the rides and the funny moments, but it was quality time with the family, which I think everyone enjoyed very much.
