It was just a couple days after school had ended for the year. The time had come for our annual band trip. The band was on its way to encounter many fun attractions. The event I was most ecstatic for was Six Flags! The day we visited Six Flags I walked around with five of my friends and my girlfriend. We spent the whole day riding the park’s fantastic rides. We started that jam-packed day with the Batman rollercoaster. The coaster was amazing with its numerous loops, twists, drops, and confrontational speeds. Coasters have never bothered me with heights. After enduring quite a few of rides, it was almost the end of our day. We made our way into the last section of the park and there it was: the most horrific ride of them all. The ride
One summer day my friend, family, and I traveled to Carowinds.sAs we embarked on our vacation, we soon discovered that the trip was extremely lengthy. Upon arrival at the park, we heard the shouting of the kids as they were enjoying the rides.cx After entering the park we darted towards the largest roller coaster there. The first problem we encountered was our fear of riding roller coasters.cdWe began to feel the thrill as we went down the first ramp and no longer had fear. The best part about the whole day was experiencing the thrill as you enjoyed the ride. Finally, we ended the day by eating out and traveling home.
The time I felt scared was when I was on the roller coaster called the Batman at Six Flags. I had already eaten some funnel cake before the ride so I was full. The smell of the funnel cake was so irresistible, even though, I knew I was going on this ride. The challenge was real because I was hoping that I wouldn’t throw up on someone. The ride was a lot of jerking with some quick and swift twist and turns. I was on the ride with my friend. We had already planned to go to the amusement so I was excited when the day came. I thought I was prepared. As the ride started off, everyone was laughing and cracking jokes and then there were silence followed by some loud screams. It was really hard but I was screaming too and my belly was dropping. That
HONK! BEEP! SQUEAKK! Every which way of me, cars are honking and breaks are squeaking but I don’t care because I see it, the best amusement park ever… Cedar Point! For the longest time had I been asking to go here, the day has finally came.
Last Friday, I attended the Ole Miss vs. Tennessee game with my friends and our mothers. A couple of the girls on the floor of my dorm thought it would be a fun idea if we took our moms to an Ole Miss volleyball game, and then go out to dinner afterwards. I agreed with them, so we all decided to attend the game. Once we got there we sat down, and immediately our mothers clicked. My mother, my roommate’s mother, and my friend Morgan’s mother hit it off so well that we couldn’t get them to shut up! My roommate and I teased them by calling our mothers hyper and childish. I haven’t seen my mother so giddy in a long time, so I was amused. Point after point, Ole Miss battled it out, winning the first game. Then the second game went around, and I
I was so happy, I felt like a dog who just got a new, big bone for Christmas. But then grief struck me: Six Flags has roller coasters, and I’m afraid of those things. But instead of telling this to
It was a warm and windy morning in the month of June 2007. I was 7 years old and my family planned a big trip to go to Hershey park. I was so excited it made me want to scream at the top of my lungs. But I didn’t. This trip was going to be the best trip of the summer. My Mom called my other family to say if they wanted to go with us. They said yes, and that made me happy. We usually don’t get to see our cousins.
When I walked into Six Flags I could hear the music from the carousel playing, and smell the popcorn, and nachos. The people there with us we 're Kara, Kathy, Lisa Jorgensen, Natalie Digllier, Copper, Payton Makena and their mom. Some of them asked me if I wanted to go on the ride called the Raging bull but I said no because I was scared and then went on a different ride instead. I had to choose to overcome my fear or not let fear control me.
‘’Wow’’, I thought when I compared Six Flags Magic Mountain to Knotts Berry Farm, Visually the rides were way more extreme. As I was walking around with my mom, uncle, and brother me my mom and my brother had a hard time keeping up with my uncle because he was walking extremely fast, he clearly knew his way around. As the worker at Six Flags started buckling all of us up my teeth started grinding against each other. Although I could feel the excitement going down my spine. ‘’Ch ch ch ch’’ as we went up, until we came to a stop that my knees were quivering with fear when all of a sudden, I’m screaming my head off!, once we went through the loopty loop I almost peed myself on that ride which was called the Viper.
It’s never been a secret that you love amusement parks. You love thrills, to go fast, for wind to run its fingers through your hair and push your head back. You love to feel like you’re flying, like you’re a free bird able to soar across the sky. Only roller coasters allow you to feel this sense of euphoria that you crave. You jump inside the biggest and longest coaster in the park, giddy with excitement. As it rushes to the top, it slows down, as expected, but instead of getting faster once
My home state is Texas, and a problem Texas faces is an overall mindset of systemic racism, sexism, and xenophobia. Texas is a very conservative state, thus many of the policies passed by our legislation are written at the expense of women and minorities. Although I might sound highly critical of our state government, I do not believe that these negative mindsets are deliberate attempts to put others down, I feel that it is simply an ignorance to the issues women and minorities face, and a lack of empathy. Ignorance is easily countered by thorough education. The easiest way to solve this is for us constituents of these politicians, to bring the issues that affect us to the forefront. If more minorities would get involved in our political system,
This year, I was invited to my friend’s birthday at Disneyland. I was hesitant about going, since I’ve only ever been on rides like Mad Tea Party, It’s a Small World, and Haunted Mansion. I knew all of my friends loved rides like Matterhorn, and Splash Mountain. As scared and hesitant as I was, I knew that my friends would never force me on a ride I wouldn’t want to go on. So I went, the first ride of course, was the Matterhorn. I waited in line with my friends as I decided on whether or not I should go on it. I went along with it, and rode the ride. I started to freak out before the ride finished going upward at the beginning, but by the end my voice was all warmed up from screaming. Stepping out of the ride, my legs were all jittery, and
As I paced back and forth in the long line, my brain began to wander among the possibilities of what was to come. I began to ask, “What if I fall out of my seat when we go upside down? What if my seatbelt comes unlocked? What if the coaster gets stuck?” After I brought this up, Katie told me I needed to just have fun and take my mind off of it. All I could think was,
I'm in the car driving toward the high school thinking about nothing except what I'm expected to do today in my game. I have my headphones on and nothing else is phasing me. People could be yelling in my ear and I wouldn't hear them. I'm only focusing on one thing. We all sit outside our locker room with our headphones on waiting for coach to come and unlock the door. Not a single one of us are talking, all of us zoned in with either headphones on or just waiting and watching. When coach comes we get our lower pads on and assemble our uppers to be left in the hallway. Then we go to the basement. We go into room 12 and coach gives us a pep talk.we watch college football pump up videos and then we all go upstairs and put our pads on. Now we have
I have gone zip-lining three times in my life and I find it very fun. Every time I go, it is very different. When I went to Kauai during the summer of 2013, I went zip lining in Lihue. We went to a forest, and went through a safety lesson prior to actual zip-lining. We were given a helmet, and a harness. When we first started to climb a ladder onto the platform, I was super nervous. My mom was too scared to go so only my dad and I went. There were 14 zip-lines, and 3 suspension bridges. The first zip-line had to be the scariest because I did not know what to expect. But, after the first one I wasn’t scared. The last zip-line was the best out of them all because it was the longest. The second to last one was the fastest,
