Well slightly chilly (by water park standards) temps and partly cloudy kept no one away, lol. It was pretty packed at Splashin Safari and I'm guessing they have the usual post school start water park/pool issues with not enough staff as a couple things were shut down. Lines were averaging a good 30-45 min. OF course it was a holiday weekend, not complaining, I knew it was a risk. But I think if we make any day trips next year, which is a 6 hr round trip we will make sure to go on a weekday to get the most bang for our buck; so to speak.

Rode the 4 coasters before we left. Took us about 2 hours to get all 4 in between 4 pm and 6 pm. And then the boy waxed poetic about Thunderbird. All. The. Way. Home.

Did see 2 things I've never seen before. Wildebeest valleyed. Twice. They had to shut it down, evacuate the stuck , and evacuate the stuck raft. And somehow a woman managed to be on one of the rafts in between the get off and get on point. Where only the boats go under the little gate. I haven't a clue how she managed that, walked up to get in line as they were hauling her but out with a ladder and everyone in line was clapping.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Valleying on a water coaster's not super uncommon, but the one of the woman still on the boat between the unload/load stations... that's a first!

Glad to hear he enjoyed Thunderbird. I certainly love that coaster to the moon and back, too! :)

So does anybody know when Holiday World restocks their online store? I want to buy a new Holiday World sweatshirt. I bought a maroon one last December and I just outgrew it. It was great, maroon and gold are my school colors so I would wear the sweatshirt and wear a maroon Converse on my left foot and a gold one on my right.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yep... This does a pretty good job of explaining why I'm 32 years old and still have no children.

I love donkeys more than me.

I asked several people in line if they saw how it happened, but those around us had all walked up after the fact. If there is an employee out there that knows what happened and can spill the beans; I'm dying to know. It was around 3:30 on Sunday 9/3.

Eh. My friends and I (we're all sixteen) we like to have days where we wear a theme park related shirt (or sweatshirt) on. One of my friends wears an awesome comfort colors shirt she bought from Six Flags Over Georgia when they went over the summer and the other one wears a t shirt that her mother bought a while ago at Six Flags Great America when they still lived in Chicago.
