The Plan (according to Ethan) - get up early, go on loads of coasters, go on water park and let Mum rest for half hour so she isn't sick, go on more coasters, buy souvenirs

What really happened - Hurray: Ethan forgot to put his iPod forward when we got to Hershey, so the alarm actually gets us up at 8 am. We still manage to make the first shuttle and get to the park just as it opens. Unfortunately, the part of the park that opens early is the bit we did yesterday, so we repeat the coasters we did yesterday (missing out the one that made me really sick). There are 14 rollercoasters in the park. Some are really high tech. Others are really old ones. There is this huge wooden coaster that has two cars racing side by side which is like an extra large version of the Grand National at Blackpool. It is like a real blast from the past for me and brings back some happy memories. By contrast, the kids can't quite believe that something so potentially dangerous can be made out of bits of wood screwed together.

The rest of Ethan's plan goes like clockwork, including the souvenir buying (mainly for him of course!! ). I am going to have to let him take over organising the next holiday!
