... and our first ride was the roller coaster ride that had been closed during the week. This also turned out to be one of our longest waits to get on a ride. The wait though was worth it and it was a really cool ride with even a loop included in the ride, along with the super fast take off! After this we needed to sit down, so of course we went on to the Ferris wheel, though in a non-swinging cage this time, much to Kelsi's delight!

I really loved the trees with the purple flowers (anyone knows which kind this is?). There are also so really tall 'bushes' which are cut in the shape of dinosaurs. This definitely makes you smile and brings back the kid in you. :)
