So Much Stuff I Can't Recall

The Worst Day to Go to Six Flags (over Texas)

...was not today.

Sure it was cold this morning, but not rainy, not even windy. Crowds were non-existent; the longest wait we had was 15-minutes at Johnny Rockets at lunch. Only a handful of rides had more than a two-ride wait -- and only then because the workers were letting 6-passenger cars go with a single rider.

Not everything was open, though. All the live shows were closed for Christmas-season preparation, and with the small crowds many food and souvenir shops were closed (no great loss). Still, only a couple rides we were interested in riding were closed (Mr. Freeze and Flashback) -- that the water flume rides were closed didn't bother us in the 50-degree weather, go figure.

Phil had a great time. Favorite rides: El Sombrero (a big spinning hat that tilts at a 45-degree angle as it whirls the kids around) and La Vibora (a bobsled ride -- think trackless rollercoaser in a waterslide flume) and Tony Hawk's Big Spin (a rollercoaster with 360-degree spinning cars). The boy's still a bit shorter than the 52-inch minimum for Batman, which bummed him out.

And even though we know it's unlikely we'll encounter the crowdless environment until this time next year, we went ahead and got 2009 season passes. Maybe Phil'll hit a growth spurt this spring so he can hit all the rides next summer.

See ya at the park.

Wow, very cool!

Passes are great. We had them for Disneyland. You can go for just a few hours without feeling like you're wasting your money.
