So I went to Great America yesterday with the Promiseland Production crew...and some programmers...and it was fun! Well it would have been more fun if Kevin didn't insist on us staying until 10!! (we meet at church at 7:30 and got there 30 mins prior to opening). So it was a 15 hour experience! Most of us had about 3 hours of "oohhh my gosh my head is going to fall off...when will the pounding end" around 3-6. After some time in the air conditioned Imax and dinner we felt better!
I went on Superman, Mark's favorite ride, and while it was cool I will never do it again! Other then the lock down harnass thing there is nothing between you and certain death! It does feel somewhat like flying and is a great ride if you can handle it. It's terifying... for me!! I "challanged" the Raging bull 3 times...my favorite ride by far! Did the giant drop and American Eagle. Iron Wolf was a mistake if you have ever been on it you know what I mean. The other new rides I wanted to check out were closed....booo! We didn't go to the water park but with the mad heat we probably should have!!
Im glad I went but next year I'm gonna talk to Kevin about this staying open till close thing!
