Six Flags over New England
Day 2 of our vacation was a trip to Six Flags Over new England which was a short 15 minute drive from our hotel. The last times I was to a Six Flags park was in 2000 when we went to Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ. I am a chicken and there was no way that I would go near one of the big roller coasters as seen in the above photo. We certainly went on plenty of the more tame rides in the park. Since we went on a weekday early in the season, the park was not crowded and we never had to wait more than 10 minutes to get on a ride. I remember dreading to go to theme parks when you spent more time waiting on line than doing anything else. It was not uncommon to wat 1/2 hour or more and the ride lasted 3 minutes. It was nice being a kid again for just one day. I will post photos when I return home in a few days.
