A Great Adventure

Sunshine and I drove to The Great Escape. I had been here as a kid, so it was very interesting to see how things have changed in the last few (several) years.

Many of the rides I remember as a kid where still there, and there were lots and lots of new ones. It was also interesting to compare last year at this time- we were in Florida and spending a couple days at the Disney parks. All things considered, this was a much better adventure, we weren't too hot to spend the whole day at the park, the price was less, and the lines were much more manageable. Sunshine really wants to go back, so maybe we'll go again this Summer.

It was also interesting to see the dichotomy of Sunshine, she LOVED the Bobsled ride,

which was an adult roller coaster, but also had a blast on Wile-E-Coyote's kid's roller coaster.

All and all...
A whole heck of a lot of driving
$66 in tickets
$50 in gas
Lots of smiles like this..

We did have a blast... as much fun as FL was last year... we had a great time in NY, less heat, shorter lines. Really one of those great memories for both of us.

We'll talk soon, want to hear more about the beach and life in general!
