For this year’s annual event of our company, I choose Enchanted Kingdom. It was a really hot Saturday morning but we still went for a theme park adventure. Who would say no to free ride-all-you-can passes anyway? :)
I was expecting to ride EKstreme but Gerald wasn’t that brave enough that day to try it. However, he was all game to try Space Shuttle, while I still don’t have the courage to do it. As you see, we mostly never agree on something. Haha.
On our first visit, we were only able to spend half a day so we made sure that on this second visit together, we’ll make the most out of it. But still, we were only able to get to try three rides – Anchor’s Away, Jungle Log Jam and Rio Grande – because we spent more time walking around and spending our wizard money on the skill games. Haha.
In the end, Gerald was able to get me this cute blue penguin stuff toy. :)
It was my second time to ride Anchor’s Away, and it’s scarier this time because Gerald forced me to sit on the third to the last row, unlike during our first time when we’re seated on the middle part of the boat. Haha.
I told myself “Once is enough” but I guess Anchor’s Away is the only “extreme ride” I can handle. Haha. Gerald wanted to try Disk ‘O Magic again, but I strongly refused. My experience with that was beyond scary. Haha.
I thought I’m already brave because I was able to jump from a 65-ft high waterfall, but oh my, the Jungle Log Jam is still scary! I was more afraid because there’s no seatbelt or anything, and you only have two bars beside to hold into! It was my first time on the Jungle Log Jam, I know I know. I can’t ride that when I was still a kid. And I wasn’t able to ride that before because Gerald and I didn’t bring extra clothes. But this time, we tried it (along with Rio Grande Rapids), because well, we’re a little prepared! Haha.
Only a little prepared, because we just brought extra shirts. When we got into Rio Grande Rapids, we were soaking wet! The Magic Drier didn’t even dry us up. Advantage of the freaking summer heat? We removed our shoes and dried them up under the sun in just a few minutes. Our shorts were also dry in just a few walks around the park. Haha.
Dumping only a few photos below because we didn’t bother to take too many photos and videos anymore. Haha. We were so into the moment and enjoyed the games, rides and even food. Haha. A short video of how our day went is available below at the end of this post. :)
We strolled around and ate a lot while we wait for the sun to go down because of the fireworks. I was a little disappointed, maybe because I’m already used to amazing pyromusical displays? But still, we ended up the day cool by riding the Grand Carousel! Haha We felt like we’re kids again while riding it! :)
It was fun despite the summer heat because the whole park was lively, with all the rides, people and cute little kiddos around. Plus, we didn’t have to fall in long queues (except for the popular rides) because the whole park was closed to public, and only exclusive to our company. :) We spent more of our time enjoying the games and watching other people scream their lungs out on extreme rides. Haha
It’s your turn!
