Hiya, ya’ll! Just felt like typing that.
We went to Avalanche Bay in Boyne City for my fourteenth birthday. I wanted to go to a water park for my birthday. We were going to go to Great Wolf Lodge, but a friend told my mom that I was going to be bored there. So we decided to go to Avalanche Bay instead. It was the second time we had been there. Harrison and I were really hoping that the owner had put conveyor belts in to take the tubes up the four flights of stairs, but nothing had changed. Oh well. Get those muscles (or lack thereof in my case) pumping!
Harrison and I took of. We headed out to The Toilet Bowl. I was not going to waste half of my time being scared of it like I had the first time. The line wasn’t very long, but it did stretch down onto the fourth staircase. However, brothers and sisters tend to talk, so the time didn’t take very long. It was very fun.
The other slide that was up by The Toilet Bowl was called The Super ‘G’ but was renamed by everybody The Outside Slide. I liked all it’s twists and turns, but it didn’t build up as much adrenaline in my veins as the Toilet Bowl did.
Another thing that was a big one for our family was the Mat Racers. You also had to walk up millions of stairs, but the mats were much lighter then the tubes were. Mat racing was fun, but I didn’t like racing with Daddy in the lane beside me, because his feet sort of dragged in the water and splattered me in the face.
Mommy and I raced on the slides in the Splasherhorn. I won. I always do, and I don’t know why.
In a regular swimming part of the park, I wanted Harrison to play HORSE with me. HORSE is a game like basketball, and there were basketball hoops and floating basketballs. However, he vetoed (because I would beat him and he knows it ;) ).
We ate at Avalanche Bay, too. We got complimentary lemonade because my meal took so long to get.
I met a friend at Avalanche Bay. I gave her my e-mail address when we left. We liked to race on the Mat Racers, or Carpets as she called them.
I liked going to Avalanche Bay.
