This theme park has regular rides and water activities all mixed together. My youngest wanted to go on a couple regular rides before she got wet. She never wants to go alone and since I haven't been able to handle a spinning ride for years, my husband went. She broke him.
He was nauseated after a couple rides and sat out the whole rest of the evening. But at least he watched our stuff, although a locker would have been cheaper.
The kids were going in the big, twisty tunnel rides and I realized I just wasn't up for flying through a tunnel in the water in the dark. Usually I'm up for this sort of thing, but following them around in the sun kind of broke me too.
I just went and found a place where I could get wet and cool off. I felt better after that and hung out with my husband for a bit. Then the kids wanted to find the lumberjack log ride. Although it has water, it's a water ride, so it was all the way across the park and it took us two tries to go in the right direction.
That wouldn't be a big deal, it's not a large theme park, but it's all up hill. Really... all the traditional rides, including the lumberjack ride are up steep hills, on black top in the hot sun.
So on the way back down I let the kids ride a few more rides, because I certainly didn't want to go back up again. After that little jaunt we found a fun, tamer river run with tubes. The kids and I enjoyed that, but although dad was feeling better, he wasn't in the mood to get wet. After a couple turns in the raging river ride, I was done.
I told the kids I'd bring them back next week. What I'm going to do is bring them and a friend each back then drop them off.
I think I'm too old for Wild Waves.
