Re:Chat With Me....



I just got back from Six Flags and had a wonderful time. I rode Tatsu 3 times and X2 twice, and hit my head so hard on X2 that I thought that I got a concussion, because I felt weird ever since I hit my head really hard. Amanda, that is so cool that you live by Knott's Berry Farm, I love going there. My favorite ride is Xcelerator.


Re:Chat With Me....



oh my goodness im so sorry you hit your head! your really brave i herd on x2 theres fire shooting at you and all these crazy turns some people get whip lash. and yea i live right next to knotts but we dont go often i dont have a favorite ride its hard for me to choose favorite anything


Re:Chat With Me....



oh haha it ok i dont know how you double post like that though... anyways whats up? your from texas i always wanted to go there i would love to live there right now in california its 90 in the shade i hate the heat, i love texas though its so pretty your very lucky to live there


Re:Chat With Me....



sorry my last post was so long


Re:Chat With Me....



I'm super brave, and you are right about X2. It is insane! Fire shoots out at you, and as you are going down the track the seats flip just like the Zisper ride. X2 does give people whiplash, but it is super awesome! I w9uld love to live in Texas too. I have always wanted to go there. In Hesperia, where I live, it is 112, super hot. But I love hot weather, and hate winter. Hope to talk to you soon.


Re:Chat With Me....



hey sara, i hope you didnt get wiplash on there, that sounds so scary you are brave like i said a billion times haha. its hot where im at to i dont know the exact temperature but i think its the same here too 112. i do not like the heat i love the cold i never been in a place that was snowing before i always wanted to go to a place that has meduim weather and alot of raon in the winter, like Organ or even New York. hope to hear from you soon too sorry my post are so long.


Re:Chat With Me....



Thats okay, Ilike long posts. If you want cold snowy weather in t3e winter, come to Hesperia. It snowed like crazy last year. And I did get whiplash on X2 it hurt. Thn, my second time I got butterflies which usually never happens, I think it hafpened because I was a little scared but it didn't hurt the second time, and I can't wait to ride it again.


Re:Chat With Me....



haha sarah thats awesome someday me and you got to go to six flags becuase i would have so much fun with you, my bff paulina has never been there before she would love it there. and wow i really wish it would snow over here but it never does its just heat and more heat blah i hate it


Re:Chat With Me....



I wish I lived there. You live by one of my favorite theme parks. When blind people go to theme parks, they don't have to wait in line, and anybody who goes doesn't have to wait either. I don't wait in line and neither does anyone who goes with me, so yeah, that w9uld be fun if we went.


Re:Chat With Me....



sarah, that is insane, have you ever been to disneyland before? when i went with paulina we had to wait in lane for all the rides, paulina had to wait too. shes blind and the only thing they did to help her was tell her is there was a gap in between the ride and the part where you get on the ride. they just said "oh watch your step" which was pretty ironic. they knew she was blind too. i think it was because she dident bring her can, she hates using it she just lets oher people show her around then walk with it i dont know why.
amanda :)


Re:Chat With Me....



Yes, '8e been to Disneyland and the same thing happened to me. I don't go because you have to wait in lines for very boring rides.

Amanda, I remember saying you couldn't imagine skydiving? Jell skydiving is the most amazing thing you can ever do. It feels awesome to fall at 125 miles per hour from 14000 feet!
