King's Island!!!!!!

Hello my people! I haven't posted since Random Wednesdays, I know I know! But I've been working on this post for a while now-so many pics! Don't worry though, I've still been commenting on everyone else's.

First off-a BIGGGG thanks to my lovely 92 followers and the people that have awesome blogs that don't follow me but I follow them. Your all's blogs rock!

So as you all probably know on Saturday, May 8th I went to a theme park in Cinncinnati, Ohio called King's Island. It's got tons of rides and a water park, but of course the water park wasn't open yet! The newest ride is called the Diamondback, but the line was wayyyyy to long to ride! Anyways, the reason I went was for the high school band competition. Our school has been going for like, 50 years now, lol! First, we stopped off at the Loveland High School for the competition...it only took about 30 minutes! We done pretty good.



Me and Sarah on the way!!!


It was so so so cold and windy! It actually wouldn't have been that bad if it hadn't been so windy!
Our school band uniforms. :) Oh, and I play clarinet.



YAY! We got our tickets and we were on our way! I just took funny pictures and listened to music on the way.


See how cloudy? At least I wore capris, not shorts! I wish I would've wore pants though!




TeAnna, Stephen, Sarah (I call her Ser) and me.







The main attraction of King's Island is the "Eiffel Tower" that you can go up in. It's pretty darn tall!



Sarah insisted on taking this picture. TeAnna had to get on the ground to do it! Thanks TeAnna!


Oh, and did I mention it was "Gay Day" at King's Island. I guess that's the day when the gays and lesbians come, but do they get free admission or something? I never thought about it.

We got in line to go up in the Eiffel Tower. I've always been a bit scared of heights, but that fear has never gotten in my way. I'll go up, but NO ONE can touch me, cause I'm afraid I'll fall off. It was very very windy at the top and I was scared I was gonna blow away! And I almost did. When it got going really good I held on the side of the elevator for dear life! I shoulda got a picture.
Here's a video. It gets funny!




It was hard to get this pic cause me and TeAnna was scared to get near the side and the wind was blowing so hard!


Haha love this pic! See my crazy hair!? We had a ton of fun!


Haha, truth is, there was no drink in the cup!





View of the park from the Eiffel Tower. And that was only our first adventure...!



My yummy delicious food I had to eat super quick so it wouldn't get cold. But the orange Fanta I got was so flat! Ugh it was so nasty! Mmm and Stephen bought this yummy brownie, omg it was soooo good!


We went in the giftshop and saw these crazy hats!!!



And tried these awesome glasses on!!! We pretty much just went into the stores to get some warmth!
TeAnna, Sarah (and later Hayley who joined us) rode on this huge ride called the Delirium that I was too scared to go on at the time, but now I wish I had! Meanwhile, me and Stephen went and rode the Viking Ship. I love it!!!

I kept having to pee all day! This is us in the bathroom.



Went into another gift shop where they had even MORE crazy ass hats. This one was my favorite.

Isn't this epiccc? I asked my mom to get me this for my birthday!

We then went and rode our first roller coaster of the day called The Racers. We had lots of fun in line! We had this big long tube type of thing that we had bought to put that powder candy stuff. And then we were done with it. Well, while we were waiting in line, people were coming out of the roller coaster a floor above us. So I could reach up and poke the stick through the crack and scare the crap out of the people why they were walking. We were dying laughing. No one up there knew what it was. Lol. The Racers itself was really fun too!


Then, it was time for....The Beast. That's one of the oldest roller coasters they have. They've had it since 1979. It' wooden, by the way. It's really long-a 4 minute ride! Most are about 1 minute. The line was long, but it only took about 30 minutes to get through it. I met my husband in line. Oh, but that is too long of a story to tell!
I was really scared! But once we went down the hill, it was on! That coaster shook me sooo bad! The hill wasn't even the worst, it was the tunnels because we went through them so fast and I was shaking all over!
I don't even sceam on roller coasters. I have to make myself. But anyways, halfway through the ride I just start making conversation. :)


This is me after the Beast!

By then it was time for awards! We got there 2 minutes late because we couldn't walk very fast because our legs were so sore from walking all day.


We got second place! YAY! :)
We were then ready to go get back on the rides!
First thing though-they have a "kiddy" park (although to me it isn't even that kiddy.) and it is themed Nickelodeon. I went into to go ride the "Runaway Reptar." And guess what??? It's Charlie Brown now! I was so pissed, and I just stomped out of that place.
Then it was time for my favorite ride of the day: The Fear of Flight. Before I go any farther-let me tell you this. I've always been afraid of uspide-down anthing. I just hated it. So, halfway in line (which was very long, but I didn't care since it was inside and warm) the kid behind me was talking about all of the loops and everything. And I was like, "Gulp. LOOPS????" I kinda just sucked it up. Once we got into the main line, about ready to get in the line, I was thinking, "This won't be so bad." Then, I saw how fast the coaster shot off into the tunnell...talk about wetting your pants. And the funny thing was, when the coaster came back to get the next people in line, NO ONE was on it, ready to get off. Every single time. So me & TeAnna really thought that they died or somthing. We sucked it up though and got on the ride. It shot off into darkness, and as usual, I closed my eyes. We just went into this big black hole and rode and rode and rode. Everyone was saying "Abby, open your eyes!" So I did. And guess what I saw? LOOPS! Millions upon millions of them! I had done it!!!!! I couldn't even tell we had, either. But then, the last big loop came, and I could feel that one boys! But I loved it. We got into a tunnell, and they were about to let us off. I yelled on the top of my lungs "THAT WAS FREAKING AWESOME!!!" Everyone looked back at me and laughed. Haha. Turns out though, they let us off at a different place than where they pick us up at...so we didn't die!!!
Then, I wanted to ride the Vortex, which was upside down. But I didn't get to because the line was too long.
We then got on the bus and went to McDonalds-then home! I was very very tired.
We had a lot more little adventures, but there was too many to name them all!
I had super fun, and I get to do it 4 more times! (One for each year of high school.)
And I have a facebook now. So, if you all do, tell me your names on facebook so I can search you and add you! I love fb friends!!!
xx,
~Abby~


Oh, and this was a Wonka thing at a giftshop. YUM!
