Where I stayed
Yes, it is true, we spent another day going from one roller coaster to the next. The first couple rides "Great Bear" and "Trailblazer", Rusty wasn't too impressed with and he thought nothing was going to compare to Busche Gardens
It was our goal again to do all 10 coasters at least once before leaving for the day. The kids had never been on a traditional wooden coaster and this park is known for theirs. We enjoyed the Comet, the Wildcat and Lightening Racer which is a double-track wooden roller coaster with two staggered lifts approximately 90 feet for each other that run simultaneously in a race. A real fun and different approach to riding coasters. We enojoyed the Wild Mouse a couple times, but the Super Dooper Looper was a let down from its name. There wasn't any dooper in the looper at all. But then there was Fahrenheit. We had all been preparing to stand in the 2 hour line all day long. It was time to face the music. After standing in line for an hour and a half we approached to ride where Rusty and Ellen were instructed to sit in the front seat
We decided to ride the Sidewinder, Storm Runner and Great Bear one last time before leaving. Rusty insisted upon Macaroni and Cheese for dinner followed by the coconut cake we had picked up in Lancaster County yesterday. He then opened a few gifts to find some pirate games we had picked up along the way. He seemed to be satisfied with the days events and gifts from the family. On the other hand, he wasn't too thrilled with the idea of having to go to bed and not playing with the toys because we were headed to Philly in the morning.
