Hershey Park

Yesterday, we all went to Hershey Park. My brother's in-laws got us the tickets, and we got to see him and them as well. It turned out to be a beautiful day. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. All of us are wearing the reminders of that one on our skin. Well, not T, he was the only one wearing sun block. Because it was just a special even day, the park wasn't too crowded. It was interesting on many levels. One, we have a toddler who has never been to an amusement park like that. Two, we had a teen who has been to amusement park, but not like this one.

T tried a couple of rides. He wasn't too sure about them. He got better the more he rode. He also went on a ride by himself. At first, he loved it. There was a bell he was striking. Then, the ride began to move. That took him by surprise, but he liked it. We all cheered for him and probably looked like fools. We didn't really care. Since there wasn't a line for the ride, the operator let it go on longer. I think T was beginning to think he was never getting off. He looked like he was going to cry, and then, the ride stopped.

J rode many roller coasters yesterday. He said in Germany the parks that he has gone only have one of each big ride. Meaning there is one roller coaster in the park. There isn't the variety we have here. He loved riding them. There is one that goes 0-72 in four seconds. We watched that one launch first, so J could see what it was like. Well, he was sold on riding it. L sat next to him. The thing was he only got to see the launch area, so J thought this thing just shot you straight. He was sitting there and realized that it shot you over a hill. It wasn't just straight. He turned and asked L wile they were sitting there if they would be riding over the hill and drop. L told him yes, and that it was too late to turn back. It apparently turned out to be fun because J rode it again.

After we left the park, we hit up Chocolate World. There is a ride in there that tells you about the making of chocolate. T was beyond done at that point. He actually fell asleep even with the loud singing cows. He didn't wake up until we almost were home.

I can say that I have been to Hershey and the park numerous times. This was the most fun I have ever had. Granted my brother always adds entertainment. There is no describing him. What really did it was having two kids going through the park for the first time, and just watching their faces all day. They both were taking in new things. I got to experience the park on a whole new level. That was better than the price of admission.
