Fright Night

 

We took a little road trip this weekend to Atlanta.  It was a fun filled trip.  We started our trip at Six Flags Friday evening.  We told the kids if we could get coupons for the park we would go.  We searched the local fast food restaurants for the coupons.  That search took us to a McDonalds one exit past Six Flags that had the BOGO coupons.  We decided we would eat there too.  As we were exiting the vehicle, an older gentlemen flagged us down.  He told us we did not need to eat there, this was a dangerous area and we should leave.  So back in the suburban we went towards Six Flags.  We went to another fast food restaurant at that exit too save time adn money, NOT !!  WE wasted 45 minutes waiting on the order , that was messed up, no surprise here.

 

Finally we arrived at the park to begin our adventure.  Our kids love thrill rides and were looking forward to the coasters. It happened to be Fright Feast at the park.  There were freaky looking people there to scare us.  Yes, we payed to be spooked.fright night

While the big kids were on the Scorcher, little man and I decide to take in a monster show, or so I think.  I was thinking along the lines of Beetle Juice.  It wasn't.dead mans party

They were blowing that fake fog all over the place.  Little man is asthmatic so we moved back away from that, BLESSING.  The show stared and dead people rose up from graves thrashing all over the floor, singing and moaning.  All the sudden I look down the aisle and see a dead man crawling on the floor grabbing people from behind.  I immediately jumped up and grabbed little man.  I am ready to race to the door , when dead man crawls toward me to grab my leg, I yelled NO and kept going.  I had to work hard to find the exit behind a black velvet curtain.  When we got out of the show, I realized I had little man in a choke hold.  His poor little neck and chest were red from my massive wrestling move.  I felt so bad!!  Luckily I hadn't terrified him too much.  It was crazy.  After I recovered from that episode. WE did have a great time.  I was prepared to find scary clowns and other monsters to jump out at us from anywhere. P2030084

Pretty huh?

 

We did have a lot of fun riding bumper cars.  It was my mission for me and little man to get everyone else !P2030096 P2030097 P2030094

Jackson was finally tall enough to ride the swings, the Big Ones.  I don't like them but rode them to protect him.P2030081

The most memorable event of the evening was Neal's cell phone going overboard on Goliath.  Now that was very unfortunate.

I have not been to Six Flags since I was a child (trust me….. a very long time ago). It’s so close I really need to take the grand-kiddos. Sorry about the cell, other than that it sounds like you had a great time.

I'm afraid I might have hurt my children trying to escape from the zombie show. I always think I'm going to like it and then get completely freaked out! Glad your little guy survived. Your daughter told me about the cell. No good but always an adventure!
