You are on your stomach the whole time! You almost believe you can fly. Good thing THEY control the harness and the ankle cuffs.
Then we went to go see Shamu in the underwater viewing tank and discovered he was just as happy to see us as we were to see him. Look closely and and you can see his mega-lipstick
Damn that thing is huge. I wanna be a whorish female orca. Oh shit.. did i just type that out loud? Oh well
Then we rode Kracken, the other coaster, which is still fun, but Manta's got it beat by a long shot.
Off into the AC where we watched a show. We watched "A'lure" The dancers and gymnasts were amazingly talented.
It was about a fisherman who gets pulled into the ocean and discovers an underwater freak show.
The costumes make me think that whomever was in charge ordering them was too high to remember to order them in time for the first show. So he called "
Really.. would YOU wear these anywhere but in a dark room filled with 200 strangers 3 times a day? Well you might, but not I.
The show was pretty good. There was an evil sea queen in it and towards the end the fisherman saved them all from her. While standing by her throne, he took he scepter and pointed at her. A bunch of smoke cam rushing around her and POOF she was gone.
There was a kid sitting behind us who had been quiet up until this point. He asked his mom "What happened to the queen Mommy" When she didn't answer, her repeated the question. Her reply? Not unlike one me or any other frustrated mom would make. She said "He killed her." I laughed so hard. We heard not a peep out of him the rest of the show.
At the beginning of the show they took the fisherman's skull cap from him and played keep away with it. He never got it back. I'm not sure if it pissed anyone else off like it did me'
Oh shit look at the time. I have 19 minutes to get ready for work. Good thing its only a 45 second drive from here.
