The idea for this trip started the night Kevin and Carrie got married when Carrie's mother and sister told our kids about the local Texan theme park - Six Flags - and ever since then Richie and Chris have been planning this part of the trip.

After a full day in the Park - they were not disappointed. We got there just before eleven am and only left at nine thirty pm after an amazing Fireworks and Laser display around the walls of the quarry (in which the park is built) which told the story of Texas and the Texans.

During the day we went on a number of rollercoasters - I did do the Rattler (the longest wooden rollercoaster in the world) - but thankfully Kevin and Carrie did the rest - icluding Superman, Tony Hawks and Kevin's favourite The Poltergeist. Deb and I did do Scooby Doo's haunted house!! There are some great bought pictures from various stages during the day.

We were a tired group heading back to Tom & Beth's house that night.

Having been in Wales and Disney with you Colm Brown, I'd like photographic evidence that you went on the longest wooden rollercoaster in the world.... when posting photos you have to think of getting featured on the travelpod homepage... I think you on the Rattler would win photo of the month!!!

Re: Rattler!
I still have my green face and b...n underwear to show for it - do you still want photographic evidence of these items ?
