Trip To Six Flags Over Texas

It's nice to reminisce the past adventures that I had when I was in Texas. I lived there for more than 5 years and there were many memories worth remembering. I'll write them all here in the days to come but for now let me take a walk down memory lane when we went to Six Flags in Arlington, Texas 2 years ago. It was my first time to go there together with the teenagers, kids and some adults in our church. We were given a very good deal because we went there as a group. I only paid $35 for the entrance fee and that includes my lunch for that day. The kids rode the church bus but I rode with some of the ladies in one of our friends car. My husband was not able to go because he was working. He was born and raised in Texas but he's never been to Six Flags and it was close to where he lived before.

We left at 7:00 AM and it was a two and half hour drive from Wichita Falls to Arlington. The park opens at 10:00 AM. I thought that there will not be a lot of people there because it was not a weekend but I was wrong. There were lots of people there. When we just got in, we had some picture taking with some of the cartoon characters who were there to entertain the visitors. Then we roamed around to look what rides they have. There were different kinds of rides but I just chose to ride the smooth rides. I’m chicken when it comes to riding those thrilling and adventurous rides like the Superman, Coobrila and the roller coaster rides. Oh my! Just looking at those rides made me feel dizzy and weak. I just rode the train rides and the boat ride. I enjoyed riding the Boomtown Depot train because I was able to have sight-seeing around some parts of the park. It was hot and humid at noon and in the afternoon (maybe the highest was mid 90’s)but it was a good thing that they have those fans with mists all around the park and I like to stay near them when I pass one by. It made me felt better. We ate our lunch in one of the fast foods inside the Six Flags. We just showed our tickets.

After roaming around the park and had picture taking my feet became sore in the afternoon. So my friends and I just sat down across the Superman ride and watched the riders there. Some of them were yelling, I don't know if they were thrilled or they were just nervous going up. The kids and teenagers and some adults had fun riding those adventurous rides.

We left Six Flags at 9:30 PM and I got home about past 12 midnight. My hubby was already fast asleep. I really got tired because of too much walking. The next day my husband said that I look darker because of too much exposure in the sun. I told him he need to visit Six Flags too next time and I'm pretty sure he will have a good time.
