Tyler and Sydney loved this ride but I have forgotten the name of it!This next pic is of Tyler and I riding the "Wicked" ride which I read has 4.85 G's of force and is propelled by opposing magnets. It was wicked fun and I only got a teeny bit queasy at the end. In the picture, Tyler and I were sitting in the back with me on the left and Tyler next to me in the middle. The lighting was awful but Ryan managed to get a few pictures.
While us 'big kids' were riding rollercoasters, Dallin occupied himself by checking out the nooks and cranies of the place. Fences are great to play on!
The one ride that I wanted to take Dallin on was the carousel. We had rode on it the last time we came, but we didn't have a picture to preserve the moment! Dallin was silent the whole time on the ride and seemed more scared than anything. He was just too small to put on the kiddie rides by himself this year, so maybe next year we will be spending more time in "Kiddie Land".
This photo doesn't give the situation justice so I will have to explain. Tyler, Sydney and Ryan wanted to ride the Rock O Plane but Tyler knew better than to share a seat with Daddy. Tyler played it safe and rode in his own compartment. His experience on this ride was way conservative compared to the next compartment in which Ryan and Sydney did just about every imaginable postition. This photo is when the ride was coming to a stop and Ryan had the gear in position to hold the compartment upside down. They were upside down until just a couple of seconds before stopping to get off! During the ride, Sydney was loving it but all I could hear was "Daddy Stop!". But Ryan told me that after he would stop, Sydney would ask "Why did you stop"?! So he kept having fun by flipping and rocking the compartment. Syndey was all smiles afterwards so I knew she had fun. She is sitting next to me right now and she wanted me to write about the things she said on the ride!
There is a train that goes around the Lagoon and this is a picture of Dallin's first ride on a train! Notice Sydney holding up her finger to signify this important ride.
This next picture is during the train ride- so it's hard to get a nice photo! This tigers' tummy looked so soft that I wanted to just go up and rub it. Oh well, maybe in the next life Tigers will let us rub there tummies!
This Camel seemed to be smiling for everyone!
Ever been 'mooned' by a bear butt? LOL
Rattlesnake Rapids is the name of this fun, WET ride. Tyler, Sydney and I rode this one and got soaked. Then the kids turned around and rode it again with Ryan. It was sooooo hot and it felt great to get wet!
By the end of the day, we were wore out and wet. I was glad Ryan and I took the kids again. Now we have pics to remember the fun as well as a journal entry! Hope your Fourth of July was memorable for your family- and safe!
