Once again, thanks to Six Flags reading program, we got 5 free tickets to Six Flags. The tickets came in the spring to be used this summer. The summer was so busy that as we neared the end of July we still hadn’t made the trip. I recalled that they expired sometime in August and thought I might need to check when exactly it was. Good thing I did, since it was about 5 days from the day I checked and my children would have been so disappointed. Adam wanted to join us on the trip and Aunt Miranda came to the rescue and let Sebastian come to her house for the day to play. (He is not quite adventurous enough or tall enough for many of the Six Flags rides.)
We headed out early on Thursday morning, August 30th, dropped of Sebastian, drove to Atlanta, and arrived not too long after the park opened. The lines were much shorter on the whole than last year. We skipped the water park section of the park this time, but managed to get thoroughly soaked on Thunder River. We had an hour or so of waiting for a thunderstorm to pass so the rides could reopen, but the wait cleared out a great number of people making our last hour and a half full of riding without the wait.
