I was brave. The first ride we took was the Jaguar roller coaster ride. I resisted in the beginning but got talked into it by my dad when he promised to reduce the time to return my little pillow to me by 1 year. He also said that if I take another roller coaster ride today, he would return my little pillow (wa-wa-wa) to me tonight. I took that challenge. But after riding on the Jaguar, I was sure that I would not go for another roller coaster ride. I finished it but I felt like I almost fall off from the roller coaster. I had a little nausea after that too.
The next ride was a simpler one. We rode the Sky Cabin. It goes up to about 180 feet and revolves 360 degree to give a panoramic view of the Orange County and LA County. We didn't have to wait too long for that ride. I felt like I was on the tallest building in Orange County.
We walked towards the Boardwalk and there, we rode the Wheeler Dealer Bumper Car ride. I enjoyed it a lot. I was riding with my mom and she drove the car. She was following dad behind his car without him noticing. It was so funny and I laughed so hard when dad finally realized that we were behind him.
We walked more and towards the Ghost Town before deciding to go on the Calico Mine Ride (train). While waiting in line, dad ran to buy me a bag of cotton candy. The rise was not scary ride but more to see what was inside the gold mine.
I wanted to go home but it was still early. So we went on the Calico Railroad. This is one of the oldest ride in this theme park.
We were hungry after that, so we went out to have some Knotts Fried Chicken. The line to the restaurant was too long so we bought Chicken to-go and had our early dinner at the picnic area.
After dinner, we continued walking around the theme park. The sky was getting darker by the time we were done with dinner. The lights came on and it looked so nice inside the theme park. We walked through the Camp Snoopy and rode on the School Bus. The ride makes a 'whoo whoo whoo' sound.
Next, we stopped by the Waveswinger for a little while to watch the ride. It is like you ware sitting on a swing and the machine swings you in circle and you probably feels like you are flying. I saw some people stretching our their arms pretending like their wings.
The last ride I did was another roller coaster ride. I never wanted another one but mom talked me into it. Then dad said if I rode this ride, I would get my little pillow tonight. So I went ahead with it. It was the Timber Mountain Log Ride. This ride opened back in 1969 and still very popular till today. We rode on the log and it went around the mountain and at the end of the ride, the log falls down and we got slightly wet. It was a fast ride but we waited in line for about 30 minutes.
After that, we left the park. I had a lot of fun today. Lastly, I would like to say "Thank You" to Uncle Joe for my parents' tickets. Southern CA Edison, where Uncle Joe works had their annual company picnic there today and since Uncle Joe was busy, he passed his 2 tickets to my dad. My dad has to pay only for my child ticket and the parking.
