Roller Coasters + Halloween =


On Saturday, Michael and I went to Lagoon with his sisters Mia, Mendy, Elisa and Marisa. It was such fun!

Even though it was Frightmares, we didn't get to go through the haunted houses they have, the reason being that the lines for them were at least two hours long. And since we got there around 4 in the afternoon, and the park closed at 10, we wanted to hit up as many rides as we could. We got to do a lot of them too! At first I was a little worried because of how late it was, but time was in our favor and we had a great time.

We all forgot our cameras, but here are some pics of only a few of the rides we went on.

The White Roller Coaster, it was build in 1921! it's wooden, rickety and pretty awesome. Kind of reminds me of Shivering Timbers from Michigans Adventure.

The Samurai! This ride was fantastic.

This is one of my favorites! The Spider. It seats 4 in a cart, and the cart spins as it goes on the coaster.

This is part of Wicked, it's a newer ride, and I'm pretty sure it's my new favorite. Look at that wicked small upside down part

This is another picture of Wicked, on the ride the first thing you do is come out of a tunnel and straight up that thing. It looked so super scary. We were all kind of nervous to go on as we stood in line. This was the last ride we went on, and it was a great way to end our Lagoon day! Oh man, I want to do that again...

I'm excited for when we go back! It was great fun, I loved the rides! I want to ride them all again.

In honor of Halloween, and Frightmares, there were people walking around dressed in costumes, Zombies, Witches, Vampires... it was fun. Michael tried to talk to one of the Zombies, but all he'd do was grunt.

While we were in line for one of the rides, we saw someone dressed up like Waldo, from "Where's Waldo," and Michael, when he saw him, yelled "oh there you are!!" it was super funny. Waldo laughed.

We all had a grand time. I like Michaels sisters, I'm still getting to know them, but it's great because they genuinely want to get to know me better too. I hope everyone in my family feels that way about Michael, because it makes me feel very welcome into their family and accepted. I love it.

That's all for now! Have a good day :)

Fun! I haven't gone to lagoon since before Dave and I were married, it is a blast! Was it cold when you guys went?

It may be LIKE Shivering Timbers, but it is not NEARLY as good as Shivering Timbers.

I think we should all meet up at Michigans Adventures next summer.
