It was the summer of 2015, and this was an usual summer; hot and humid. Me being a college student at Emory University and working at Six Flags I was always busy. Today was one of those days. I have to clock in at Six Flags at 6:00 pm, and then be on time for finals at 8:00 pm.
Ever since I was a young child, I have always loved adventure. My fear loving father would always take me on the most wonderful retreats to free our adrenaline. One trip in mind that I will never forget is the first time I ever visited the colossal theme park, Six Flags over Georgia, located right outside the stunning city of Atlanta. I was at the tender age of nine years old and had just surpassed the height mark for being able to ride everything. My father had always waited for the day his daughter could finally experience the same grand adventures as himself.
lunging 230 ft., my legs about to snap from the opposing force of gravity I ask myself why. Why did I ride this moronic ride? Six Flags, a place where the aroma of waffle cones or turkey legs, the size of small children, waver through the blacktop roads. A place where kids of many ages run around with overpriced capes and teen employees know nothing about roller coasters and how they operate.
On a warm Saturday afternoon in June of 2006, my parents and I took on a trip to Six Flags. We were suppose to be on line for the ride “Batman” but accidentally ended up on “Nitro”. That accident helped save years of a life. As my dad was buckling up for Nitro, the belt just didn’t seem right with his stomach. From then on, Nitro turned to Chemo.
Six Flags, Inc. is the largest regional theme park operator in the world. Currently Six Flags operates 18 parks in the US, one in Canada and one in Mexico. In the aggregate, Six Flags’ theme parks offer over 800 rides, including more than 120 roller coasters. The following questions pertain to Six Flags’ goodwill.
I'll never forget the first time I survived going to Six Flags. The wind blowing every time you pass a roller coaster coming your way, the screams of the children, the fear and anxiety before going into the cart, and the delicious smell of all the food! When I was little I HATED roller coasters I hated the feeling in my stomach I get when I go down, but as you know you grow out of fears sometimes and start liking new things as you get older. For me one of them was starting to like roller coasters.
When I was about five years old, I assumed that everyone was the same as me. I believed that everyone liked what I liked and that they would dress exactly like me, but I never asked them if they truly did share the same compassion as I did. This all changed the day I invited my friend to an amusement park. It had been during the summer when my parents decided to take me to my favorite place- Six Flags. Since I wanted to share the experience with my new found friend, Amy, I asked her if she wanted to come. At first, she complained about having too much homework and other nonsense, but once I demanded she come with us, she agreed. At that time, I didn’t think of it as demanding. I thought of it as persuading her to come along and persuading
My artifact that shows my success is a cheer trophy that my team and I won in Vegas at a competition. The trophy is significant to me because it took a lot of hard work for our team to perform at this competition. Our team has never worked together so well and had more dedication than ever because that first place trophy is something we all wanted.
I will never forget my trip to Six Flags, St. Louis. This all started when I was fourteen years of age. My step dad, who lived in St. Louis, decided to invite me to visit for the summer. I was so excited to go! When the day came he pulled up at my house he asked me if I had all my stuff ready I said, “Yes sir! Let’s go!” Then my step dad’s family and I piled into the two cars and hit the road. The whole ride there I thought about all the things I wanted to do at Hurricane Harbor and Six Flags.
As I get out of the car, I hear a girl screaming in the distance. Hearing such a noise instantly made me feel a chill go down my spine. As I walk against my own fear, I approach an overwhelming sign that says “Welcome to Six Flags over Texas”. My mother looks at me with a huge smile, reassuring me that there is nothing to be afraid of. Being only 8 years old at the time, I was a very hyper and ecstatic kid. Going against my own fears, I timidly rushed to the entrance. As I stood there before this monstrosity of amusement, my jaw was on the floor with astonishment. Leaving me in a state of shock,I could only slowly walk in with aw, and marvel at what was before me.
My family and I traveled to Six Flags this summer for a family vacation. Six Flags is located outside of Atlanta,Georgia. While traveling to Six Flags we stopped at the Birmingham Zoo. when going down the Goliath,I panicked and started to scream.We rode another roller coaster and my fear became more magnified. We also rode the bumper cars and my brother ran into me. We didn't want to spend our summer patrolling the neighborhood on our scooters. We also went because we didn't work interfering with our family time. We wanted to go somewhere fun and exciting. While dinning at our vacation this summer we saw a chef chopping vegtables. The weekend we went to Six Flags qualified as a vacation.On our trip to Six Flags my brother interfered with
I don’t ever want to forget the day we went to Six Flags. In the morning I woke up my parents at 9:00 in the morning so we can get there early and get tickets. Next, I ask my friend if he can come and he said “Sure I’ll come”. So, when my friend was ready to go we left to Six Flags Great Adventure. In addition, when we got there we started off with the games. My friend and I were versing each other on different games. We also went into the haunted house. When we got bored we went on the roller coaster. We went on Superman, Green Lantern, and the Joker, and the most coolest part the Ferris Wheel! After that, we took a break and got back to the rides. Later, when we were tired out, we went home.
It was the day my family and I were going to Six Flags Over TEXAS.I love that place I go there all the time on my birthday. I love going on all the rides except the huge rides that can give you a heart attack like the Superman ride that can go about 80 miles an hour , the scary rides like the Joker that twists and turns and goes upside down , and the twisty rides like Catwoman whip P.S. don't go on it after you just ate.I only go on the rides that I know I won't fall off and break any of my bones.I know I’m a very safe person.
¨¨Ahh!¨ Everyone screamed while riding the Texas Giant at Six Flags. The drop was the scariest part and I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it. I was with 2024 a church group that I am in.What really scares me is that I have never ridden on a vast ride before. The ride went up up up and then the cart fell down the drop, it looked absolutely scary. Everyone was telling me to do it so I decided to do it.
