Down The Bowl

At The Great Escape yesterday, we hit the sweet spot: a stretch of the day you could get on The Comet over and over again without standing on line. I can’t tell you how many times we went on the giant roller coaster —12 times? 15 times? Either way, my neck is really sore today. On the wet side of the park, we spent more than 30 minutes waiting to go on the “Mega Wedgie” water slide. You drop down a chute in a raft and then spin around and around in a big cylinder before before being sucked out the bottom. It should be called the Mega Bowl or Royal Flush, because the sensation is just like being in a toilet. If they were smart, they’d embrace this concept and run with the bathroom joke. Brown rafts maybe?

We also rode The Boomerang a couple of times, but as much as I enjoy roller coasters, it’s is a harrowing experience. That ride should be called The Colonoscopy —but I digress.

Just to top off a post that’s going downhill fast, I found it interesting that all the people operating the rides at the park were foreign workers here for the summer. We I know this is immature, but we got a big kick out out of the guy at The Alpine Sled: UFUK. That seemed funny, but this was after riding The Comet for an hour.Is it possible that repeated roller coaster trips reduce your intellect? If so, let’s hope it’s only temporary.

  1. We were there all day Saturday — our sixth trip this summer (plus one trip to Six Flags New England).

    Yesterday I achieved my goal of getting my 8-year-old on the Comet before the summer was over. He can’t wait to ride it again!

  2. Duh! I said “yesterday,” obviously meant Saturday (I guess the whole weekend has been kind of a blur).

  3. I was there on Sunday. You probably missed me. I was the dude in Wiggles World reading a book.

  4. Toilet bowl, colonoscopy, sounds like a crappy time to me.
