Went to Six Flags with [personal profile] idonotlikepeas today. It was hella awesome, once we figured out how to sit down on a bus. I know many of you have us both on your flists, so I will try not to repeat too much of the craziness from today.

You can't tell from this picture, but there are actually 7 flags on top of this thing:


(The last twenty feet are heavily soundproofed(haha, I said feet))


For some reason I have paradoxical ride phobia. I'm actually more scared by the gondola and bumper cars than I am of roller coasters and such. The gondola I think is because at least roller coasters have the whole "moving fast" thing to distract you from the fact that you're high up in the air, whereas the whole point of the gondola is for you to look around and see how far away the ground is (I wonder if it'll be friends with me). I'm scared of bumper cars because of the first time I rode on one. It was back when Six Flags was still Riverside. I think I was like 10 or 11? And I ended up getting stuck in the corner almost immediately ("you're doing it wrong!"). After a few minutes of ineffectual flailing at the steering wheel, there was a horrible noise and I was covered with a blinding shower of sparks from above. The entire ride stopped and everyone looked at me. I was fine. But yeah, no bumper cars.

Anyway, here is a picture I took from the gondola when I could manage to tear one of my hands away from white-knuckling the oh-shit bars.
