Six Flags Great America

 

Welcome to Six Flags Great America

Amazing to see a Condor ride operating

Despite horrible load times, Superman Ultimate Flight is still one of the best coasters out there.  The sensation of flying (especially in the front row) is just so much fun

Dark Knight is an interesting mouse coaster.  While fun, the transitions can be a little rough

After riding Dragon Slayer a few days ago, Joker just seems tame

Batman on the other hand is anything but tame

Had to ride the swing ride

You know I am not passing up an opportunity to ride an Impulse

Anyone else miss Kiddyland?

Goliath stands tall at the back of the park

I'm still surprised that Six Flags hasn't cloned X-Flight at other parks

Demon is still a classic must ride

Amazing how much better their Justice League is compared to the one in St. Louis.  Everything actually works (including the guns)

Richochet

Giant Drop

Raging Bull is still one of my favorite coasters

I had a good ride on Viper today - of course I didn't ride in a wheel seat so that's probably why

Still the best themed area of the park

Maxx Force is fun for what it is

I still think that it is way too short of a layout

We finished the day with a ride on Goliath after park closing

It was nice walking back to the front of the park without the hordes of school kids that infested the park today

It was a great day

Nickelodeon Universe - Mall of America

 

Welcome to Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America

The marquee attraction is still the  Sponge Bob roller coaster

It does appear to be rougher in a few spots, but is still a great ride

I love the look of this bounce house

Not sure if it was my gun or the actual targets, but Ghost Blasters needs a tune up

I'm sure by now you've seen the video of the lady that can get this thing to spin like crazy.  I'm here today to admit that I cannot.  I am lucky to get it to spin once

Orange Streak is still my favorite ride here.  It proves that coasters can be just for fun and not overly intense.

The Big Rigs wandering through the trees

I think these ride vehicles are adorable

Who doesn't like swings?

These bumper cars are pretty lame, sorry not sorry

I am good for one ride on Brain Surge before I'm done.  I'm surprised there isn't more protein spills on this ride

Avatar is not nearly as scary as Jimmy Neutron at American Dream.  I think the shoulder straps make you feel more secure

Carousel

Ferris Wheel (this thing allows you to get some neat visuals of the park)

Cute crazy bus themed to Diego

They had a new Dumbo Spinner ride themed to Avatar

The Shredder ride is a lot of fun

Of course we had to ride the Log Flume and say hi to Babe the Blue Ox

Boots has a Banana Swing

Bubble Guppies was moved to make way for the new Avatar Dumbo Ride

Fairly Odd Parents is still a fun coaster

Good times at the park - let's go check out the rest of the Mall
