Fiesta Texas

I don't ever seek thrill rides and often avoid anything that may expedite death (sky diving, bungee jumping, roller coasters, driving often, etc). Mainly because I get motion sick pretty easily. So it's funny that I rode 7 roller coasters yesterday at Fiesta Texas.

Well, I was forced to.  When you hang out with an older brother and an equally older boyfriend for Samsung Employee Appreciation Day, you don't want to be a wuss - because it's no fun for the rest of the group. I sucked it up and starved myself until we were done riding roller coasters to avoid any mishaps. 

Okay, not really, I starved myself until lunch where I gorged on yummy BBQ brisket, potato salad, beans, a hot dog, peach cobbler and a couple cans of Sprite. Then after a few more rides, we had smoked turkey leg, slushies, and bottles of water.

After that, I was done. But the guys decided to ride 2 more times and I tried to capture the fun on my iPhone.

What we rode:
1. Superman
2. Superman
3. Goliath
4. Poltergeist
5. Bugs White Water Rapids
6. Scream
7. Superman (I stopped after the 3rd time, seriously)
8. Goliath
9. Boomerang

At the end. I wore my Traveler on all the rides and nothing fell out. Definitely doesn't need a zippered top.

If you plan on going to a Six Flags on the weekend during the summer, I would recommend getting a Flash Pass. You by-pass all the lines and make it possible to ride a billion rides a day. And by a billion, I mean like 9 rides in 5 hours (with lots of time for lunch, hanging out, and games).
