Ok so this is like two or three years from my last Six flags trip and this year it was on Thanksgiving so there were hardly any people there, go figure, is everyone at home eating!?
I woke up at 5AM and was picked up by three friends (that I don't even know that well) and we met with 5 other firends (didn't know them much either) at someones house and left to six flags in two cars at 6 in the morning. Leaving from San Diego it took about 3 hours but we did stop at a restaurant for about an hour and ate waffles...and good waffles they were.If I didn't have to listen to Fallout Boy or Metro Station I would say the ride was enjoyable.
The park opened at 1030 and we were there at the front of the gates,...it wasn't difficult. When we got there we quickly found other people we knew and met up with some other groups of friends that came from San Diego as well. Throughout the day are humble group of nine people at one point reached over thirty friends, both locals and out of town. There were more people we knew but I think that was the most in the same place at one point. No, I didn't take pictures, someone else did but if I get my hands on the copies I will try to post them.
Our group semi-leader Ivan (our driver too) was able to keep us pretty organized amidst the very frequent friend encounters. Our objective of course was to ride all the rides. We met that goal minus a few rides like Deja Vu and Superman because they were closed for the day. The lines were very short and for most rides we were able to stay on them a few times. We went towards Goliath first because everyone runs to X2 since its new upgrades - It has gigantic flamethrowers that go off during the ride!!! There is also something very special that happened during X2 but I will save that for another time cause it is completely off the subject but it has got me really excited.
Anyways, Afterwards our group and a few others went out to eat at the local Denny's (only place open on thanksgiving where they serve you.) and just talked and instead of eating waffles I had French Toast.
The ride home wasn't very interesting, Ivan threatened that if we didn't stay awake to keep him from getting sleepy he would open all the windows. None of us wanted that but we all fell asleep anyways. We arrived home with all windows thankfully still up and I crashed on my bed knowing that was one of the best days on my life, though I probably said the same thing about the last trip too.
