Another thought. What do you think people about Amusement Parks? We do like Six Flags parks and Wild Safari. There are some our observations and brave moments :)
   What can I say about Wild Safari? It's just very cool park especially at the first time. I like it more than zoo because animals are free and not enclosed in cages forever. It's great opportunity to make pictures and show your children real world. It's fun for everybody because sometimes you can even touch an animal or see some rare kind very close to you. And those small monkeys are so cute you can't pass them without a smile...
   Six Flags Amusement park is a great idea too but has a very bad implementation. I think that tickets are very expensive and still they charge for parking additionally. First you need to stand in a queue to buy a ticket, next in a queue to enter a park and then you need to stand in a queue to every one ride you want to go. It's crazy! Just think of it, you spend 3/4 of the time just staying in queues. Mike doesn't like at all he becomes angry after the first one, I'm more patient but still hate it a lot. I need to stand for an hour in a line to 'Medusa' and then ride for only 3 minutes !??? Also sometimes they predict waiting time like 45 minutes but in reality you stand there for 1,5 hours (!). Come on, people, they need to find some better ways to organize this experience. Can they announce a competition for the best idea how to decrease lines maybe??? I'd say give me a schedule together with ticket that I need to be at 5:15 at 'Medusa' and arrange me a ride on 5:15. I'll be happy completely! Anyway let's stop criticizing and continue describing fun.
   Yeah, everybody agrees that nevertheless most rides are fun, scary and exciting altogether. First time I and Mike visited Six Flags in San Antonio, Texas, and we were brainwashed in our first ride. I thought I gonna die but I didn't and liked it a lot. Actually we went through all the big and exciting rides that time. Recently I was in Six Flags, New Jersey, with my sister who never saw these rides. She felt the same and was very scary after the first one but after the second one she wanted more and more :-)) I like all the modern fast rides, the wooden ones (very scary) and water rides. It's just so cool to "take a shower" during hot summer day. I like the idea to make pictures during rides, you can see and show others your "intelligent" face 8-0
   It looks to me that some people go there just to win many large toys. Sometimes you can see a scene where a family carries 3 gigantic toys and several small ones. There are lucky people, what can I say? Once I won very small bear and Mike won small cow and after we never won anything else :( We never can get those, period.
   We've been in Universal Studios park in California also. It's completely different park what has several great shows and 3D short films. Attention, people: it doesn't have real rides. The rides are IMAX movies along with motion simulators. We spent 1 hour in a line just to ride in a motion simulator for 5 minutes. We didn't understand what for we waited in a line !? Universal has a real studio behind a park and they conduct a tours; it maybe makes a sense to see it once and that's it. The park has good decorations, funny actors and many shops. I'd say it's mostly park for children or people who like shopping...
