The Holiday Park


Ya I know...one of the girls blogged about this already. Again, not everyone sees the girls' blogs, plus I have moooore pictures. So, mine is still worth looking at. hahaha.

Okay, so Brian took us to this amusement park called The Holiday Park. A very small version of Knott's Berry Farm. It was really fun! I think the thing we were looking forward to the most was the roller coaster called "Ge-Force". Funny thing is that even with my fear of heights, I LOVE roller coasters. Random, huh? I was so ready to go on this. See below.

Boy was I in for a surprise! When they say G-Force, they MEAN G-Force. No wonder it was voted in the Top 10 Roller Coasters. I'm not kidding, on this down slope, we not only went upside down but almost flipped over. We caught air and had a loss of gravity so many times. This was THEEEEE craziest roller coaster I have ever been on. And surprisingly, it wasn't a rough roller coaster where you get off and your body feels like it's been in a car accident. It was built so smooth.


I couldnt' even bring myself to go again. And we probably could have snuck the girls on (even though they didn't hit the height OR age requirement) cuz there were lots of kids in line, but there was no way I was letting them on it and getting sucked out of their seats. I can't even say it enough....it was crazy.

Okay, so enjoy these pictures. I don't think I have much to say about them.




This was the Free Fall ride. Xanthe really wanted to go on it and I thought it was like California Screamer at Disney California Adventures. No way. It was like that horrible ride at Knott's Berry Farm that goes so high in the air and you barely have any seat to sit on. I respectfully declined. Brian was the only one that would go on it with her. Here they are coming off the ride.






Carousel

I loved this Carousel. I am not usually in love with them...it takes a really good one to get me to like it. One that has just horses all around is not my favorite. This one was so amazing. It had all sorts of carriages and animals to ride in. I wasn't going to post any pictures, but then I think it will give you an idea of what I mean. ill only post one or two pictures of them just so you can capture an image of this amazing carousel. Try and see the hanging mosaic chandeliers towards the middle. I promise there ARE pictures with the kids in em further down.






Okay, here are some People Pictures. I love People Pictures, can you tell?




The kid could not contain himself. He fell asleep in my arms while we were eating.
