The boyz and I (along with my Sis, Niece and her friend) were lucky enough to be personally hosted for a day at the park.
And by "personally hosted", I mean our knowledgeable tour guide, Heriberto, gave us the ins and outs of the park and the rides, while allowing us to cut to the front of each.and.every.line to ride the rides. There's no denying, the VIP treatment was awesome.
This year was Middle's year. He was soooo excited that he was finally 52 inches and would be able to ride some of the bigger/scarier thrill rides. He was revved, he was pumped, he was stoked.
And then - he met the Scream ride.
My Sis and Middle checking out the ride with Heriberto, our tour guide.
Really? Are you sure, Middle? You want to get on this?
(*Craning neck skyward* Because no way in hell was I riding it with him.)
But that's what little sisters are for, right?
Yep. He was sure he wanted to ride it.
And well, you can see for yourself how THAT ended:Once Middle recovered, it was time for lunch. We were hosted by JB's Smokehouse Barbeque for some tasty chicken and ribs and fries. And soda. And lots of napkins.
And then it was time for even MORE rides.
Middle (my daredevil when it comes to these things, obvs) was ready for another big one. This time? Mind Eraser. I don't even like the name of that! But I did it. With my eyes squeezed tightly shut the entire time.
On the other hand, Eldest is NOT my daredevil. So this is what it looks like when you spend a day at Six Flags and don't really like to ride the big rides.
He rode the pine.
I can't say enough about the great day we enjoyed courtesy of Six Flags New England and the park itself. Clean, well maintained, and most of all, FUN.
1. Wear comfortable shoes. The park is very spread out, so you do a TON of walking.
2. Go on a weekday as opposed to a weekend, if you can. The less time you spend waiting in line = less whiny children.
3. The food prices are pricey. Keep a stocked cooler in your car with drinks and snacks and save money that way.
4. Measure your children beforehand so they know what rides they can ride on based on their height. Middle already knew ahead of time that he simply wasn't tall enough for ride that was 54 inches and above.
And now for the BEST PART!
