Six Flags: Great Adventure

28 Jun

Friday, June 13th, was our mandatory work party at Six Flags: Great Adventure. I know what you are thinking, “Care, do you really ever work?” And the answer is yes. I have decided that media people get tons of presents and things like days at Six Flags because media is not that cool. I know there are aspects that are really cool, but I think most people get stuck in the not-cool stuff.

Anyway, Six Flags was super fun. It was weird to see work people outside of work. It was most surprising to see how early people start drinking when they have the opportunity. Actually, my favorite line of the day took place during lunch when some of the people we were with decided to get some drinks around lunch time: Guy whose name I have forgotten, “Do you guys want to get a beer?” Me, “No, that’s ok.” My boss, “You don’t drink, right?” Me, “Right.” Guy whose name I don’t remember, “Oh, well I think they serve wine.” Is this the caliber of people I am working with? I just want to know his rationale behind this statement. Anyway, I thought the exchange was pretty funny.

So I have decided that Six Flags is pretty much the same everywhere. I will say that the New Jersey one got extra points because it was cleaner and you didn’t have to walk up mountains to get to rides. They did have the craziest ride I have ever seen in my life called Kingda Ka. The ride is about 20 seconds long and it is a lot like Magic Mountain’s Superman except that instead of going down back-first, you turn around at the top and go straight down face-first. I have never been so scared to ride a roller coaster in my life. I kept thinking about how Jessi would react to the sight of Kingda Ka, at which point I would laugh and laugh. cheap Propranolol J purchase Clonidine

There was another version of Superman in New Jersey that was really cool because you were actually riding on your stomach. I didn’t know how they were going to pull it off, but it was really cool and so so fun. You sit in the roller coaster like normal but then, opposite of what happens on X, you are tilted forward so you are looking at the ground. There is extra padding on the ride, too, so your chest isn’t smooshed against the bars, so it is totally comfortable. I was in my superman stance the whole ride – one hand ahead with the other fist on my waist – until I couldn’t hold it anymore, which is the precise moment that the picture was taken. What a joke!
