With Ayla soon departing Circus Center and Eve performing in the Cirque Dreams show at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, we had run out of excuses… it was time for a day at the amusement park. I hadn’t been to an amusement park since “Senior Ditch Day” back at that Thacher, so I was definitely excited about a full day of fun.
Around 9:45 AM, we piled into the bus, had a few mimosas, and before we knew it our bus was driving circles around the Discovery Kingdom parking lot looking for a place to park. We arrived just in time to get in line for the 1:00 Cirque Dreams show, but not before a small group of us broke off for a quick ride on the Tasmanian Devil.
The cirque show was fun! Eve was great. The hand balancers were legit. The hoola-hoop girl hoola’d a ton of hoops. Oh yeah… did I mention dolphins?
After the show was over, Eve came out and grabbed a few of us for a “surprise.” Backstage, we got to meet some of the dolphins and they showed us a few tricks. Lu Yi loved it!
Now it was time for the rollercoasters. I’ve been bungee jumping and hang gliding, but I always used to be scared of rollercoasters. This time, for some reason (probably being with my girlfriend or now working at the circus), I was somehow able to keep it together. Somewhat surprising, the lines weren’t that long so we managed to get on most of the rides; Medusa (2x), Superman, V2: Velocity, and Skyrazer (or whatever it was called). I had the obligatory Corn Dog and Dip N’ Dots.
It was a really fun day and I would highly recommend Cirque Dreams for anyone who likes fun…
If you don’t like fun, don’t go to Discovery Kingdom.
