Rockin' the rollercoasters

This weekend was eventful and productive! We kicked it off by heading to Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari with some friends. We had told them that we had never been to a Six Flags before and they organized a trip out to Jackson, NJ for a day of rollercoaster fun! So bright & early on Saturday morning, we loaded up in a rental and headed out!

We rode a grand total of 7 rollercoasters - including the world's tallest & fastest one, Kingda Ka. IT WAS AMAZING!!! Incredible crazy but fun at the same time. We bit the bullet and decided to do the craziest one first - and I was sweating like a pig! Clammy palms and butterflies in my tummy - I was so anxious and excited at the same time. I'm so glad I did not chicken out and survived the most insane ride EVER. For those of you not familiar with Kingda Ka - check this out! Other rides of note included: Nitro (which we rode twice!), El Toro (3rd fastest and steepest wooden rollercoaster in the world), Bizarro, Superman: Ultimate Flight.

We hopped on rollercoaster after rollercoaster and slotted in some boardwalk games & lunch. Jordan lucked out on the milk can game and won a HUGE prize and so did our friends! We also did the drive thru Safari which was quite fun, because the animals come right up to your car to say hello. Like this giraffe:
It was such a fun day. We ended it off with Japanese yummies from Mitsuwa and passing out from sheer exhaustion and excitement. Sunday was spent sleeping & eating in large amounts :) 
I hope your weekend was as thrilling & fun as mine.
