The Roller Coasters in Spring

Amusement parks are a great way to usher in the summer vibe, have a great time with friends, act like you're a teenager again, and pay outrageous prices for mediocre food.

Tara and Lara planned this small Saturday jaunt to Paramount King's Dominion which turned into a larger group as the date got closer.

We ended up with Lara, Tara, Anne, Rachel, Katie, Holly, Jeremy, Ben, and me.

The side challenge of the day was to keep track of how many white trash icons we could find - mullets, tramp stamps, tube tops, bad ink, etc.

The winners of the day: Female - a very unflattering (and often adjusted) tube top while sporting a chest tattoo. Male - brown Carhartt overalls (just over one shoulder) with no shirt.

The weather was amazing, the rides were awesome, and the company was a blast.

When are we going back?

Here are some more pictures.
Here are Tara's pictures and her blog account of the weekend.

Here is a video of Tomb Raider. I held the camera against the restraints in front of me so this is the perspective of someone looking straight ahead during the ride. Watch it if you Dare!!

Here are a couple more videos. Sorry the camera work is pretty awful.
This one is an upside-down video of Rebel Yell (backwards).

Here is the Drop Zone at night. Sorry you can't really see anything but the screams have a nice effect.

It looks like it was a fun day for all. As for people watching. We do this when we go out somewhere. People come in a variety of interesting shapes and sizes. Somtimes it's hillarious and sometimes it's "Oh my gosh! was that human?"
