When first arriving I saw all the security, and the metal detectors and was thinking "Really" but quickly re-thought...this is actually great so you and your family can feel safe while at the park. Even though some things can slip through I felt more protected than some other parks I have been to, this is a really smart idea.
The first place I went was to Hurricane Harbor...the water park...
I went on (well was drug onto) was the new Bonzai Pipelines Water Slide. I am scared of heights so was not looking forward to this but continued on anyways. Once arriving at the top and seeing the people in front of me chicken out I was wishing I could follow. Once in your tube you cross your legs and arms and wait for the countdown....4....3....2...1....and the floors falls out. All I know is that I could not open my eyes the whole way down, at least it was a very quick ride, not sure I would do it again though. I think this is the perfect ride if you are looking for a thrill while at the park, and definitely a great ride if you love heights and drops.
Next I got to go on the Tornado, which was another I was questionable about...I mean what if you go over the sides :) I know I am a big baby, It is perfectly safe. Once at the top you go down on a 4 person tube flying back and forth near the edge of the funnel. I kept seeing multiple people jumping back in line as soon as they were done, so that should tell you how much fun it is.
While I sat to the side my boyfriend went on the Mind Eraser which has rollovers, dives, spins, and sidewinders....I had to pass on this one, a little too much for me.
While waiting for him I decided to go on the Bumper Cars, they are always fun bumping into random strangers!
While I was there Roar was temporarily shut down so I did not get to check this one out, but looks like it would be a fun coaster.
At the end I decided to go on a Roller Coaster with my boyfriend so I chose The Wild One since it was a wooden coaster and did not have any loops....well it still does have some pretty big drops. At the end my hands were sore from holding on so tight...but at least I did it, and rode my one coaster of the day even though I was as scared as a baby.
If you are worried about food and drinks while you are at the park there are plenty of places to choose from...
My suggestion for drinks is that you buy the souvenir cup for $14.99 and then you can get free refills all day the first day you purchase your cup. Also, it may be a good idea to look into the dining pass depending on how often you visit and if your a season pass holder.
Other than rides, and food there is also fun carnival type games set up all around the park along with gift shops to purchase souvenirs or some yummy food to take home.
Overall I thought that this was a very fun park to attend, I wish we had longer than 6 hours to be there but we had to get back home because of work in the morning...always takes the fun away! Even if you don't make it during the regular summer season there is always there Halloween special, or other holiday specials when the park is open.
