Laura B., the queen of Summer hijinks and good times, chose this week’s word to be “summer”. Perfect, since that season is upon us!
I found some photos that I took awhile back at Six Flags Amusement Park. Summer is the season to visit amusement parks. I found these photos just in time for this week’s word!
The next new photos will be progressive shots. This is one of my favorite rides at Six Flags, called Shipwreck Falls. Here is a shot of some riders going down the hill.
The impact of the boat/car/log hitting the well of water at the bottom of the hill creates a huge splash and a wave of water. People in the car get soaked, but it’s not over yet.
To the left, you’ll see the gob of water moving inland.
There is a platform nearby where people can watch the ride, but I advise you to not stand there in your new suit or whatever. You get soaked almost as much as the riders do, and you see the water coming toward you. I went on this ride several times. Several. But I also enjoyed standing on the platform and getting hit by the water. This shot was taken quickly so that I could hide my camera from the water.
Finally, here are some rafters at Six Flags. I don’t know what the ride is called, but I think all it consists of is to rent an inner tube and float down a lazy river. Maybe it was called Lazy River. Not sure.
That’s the end of my photo collection for this week’s word. Who will LB tag next? We shall see!
