The kids and I went to the Great Escape today. Its a theme park owned by Six Flags. We visited with Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Taz, Wily Coyote and Foghorn Leghorn. We also saw Batman and the Flash! We went on some rides including the new one above. I like to call it the Giant Toilet Ride, or for you in England The Giant Loo ride. Its really called The Tornado. You have to carry this huge raft up the stairs and then you go down this chute. I ended up going down an almost straight drop BACKWARDS into this thing. I thought I was going to fall out. Sarah had this look of horror on her face. Then you go up the side and down and up the other side and down and then shot out the bottom into a pool. All in 17 seconds. Yup just like a toilet. LOL! It was pretty fun after the initial fright. I had only two complaints about the park. The prices of the food and drink and the dress policy.
The food and drinks are very expensive and you are not allowed to bring in any of your own, even water. Water is $4.00 for a small bottle! Outrageous! Very few public drinking fountains either. Also, you cannot wear your swimsuit in the regular park area. I wore mine into the park and no one said anything. I had shorts on over it. There were women in tops similar to mine and swimsuits. I was approached by a guard who told me I had to have a cover up shirt. Now mind you, my top is rather conservative, just swimsuit material. Not allowed however. I told him I came this way and had no cover top and he didn't press the issue. This was after we were already there 4 hours. I saw my sister's daughter N. She acted like she didn't know me, but was distantly polite. I gave her a little hug. She is a Bugs Bunny costume character at the park. She was just coming in to work when I saw her however. My Mom saw her and her brother when she was up and N was rude to her. I didn't put N's full name in her because my sister may not want it in here and I respect her privacy. So I got a little sunburn and had fun and TODAY IS MY 1ST YEAR AWAY FROM DAVE! Wooohooooo!
