Fun new rides just for kids! #SFOGTHRILLS

Hopefully you saw my last post about us being invited to Six Flags Over Georgia for the Grand Opening of Bugs Bunny Boomtown.  I didn't want to overload you with photos, so we are here now to tell more about the rides!  Boomtown is all about kids and we had a blast letting him play to his hearts desire!
Tweetys Tree House - 
This was perfect for an introduction to the rides.  On this ride, you go up 20 feet in the air and then it "drops" you. Not too fast so littles are giggling more than screaming.  See the smiles? So fun he had to ride more than once! 

Daffy Duck Bucket Blasters- 
This one has one of his big brothers on it. (He did manage to get them all on it with him!)  He loved it, because you shot the other people with the water ... and could also shoot the people standing to the side watching!  Sure to get lots of shrieks and laughter!

Speedy Gonzales Speed Boats- 
This one kinda caught him by surprise.  We thought it just went around and around, but it actually went up and down too, like a speed boat!   He was laughing and giggling, I just wish I would have gotten better pictures!

Bugs Bunny High Sea Adventure - 
The "boats" set sail and swung around in the air.  More than just kid swings, this was fun for him.  You could ride 2 people per boat or go solo.  (See some parents rode it too.) 

After riding the rides in Boomtown, we were finally able to talk him out of there so we could walk around the park.  As were meandering, we came to a stage where the characters were out dancing and having a blast.  Broxton and Daffy were doing the Whip N - Nay Nay at this point.  
Bugs and Lola got dressed up for the dance party!  Just had to get a picture of them!!!!

\
After all of that,we had to head back to Boomtown.  The playground (AKA Looney Tunes Adventure Camp) kept calling his name and this boy loves to run around.  We spent a good time there letting him get more energy out!   

That's All Folks!!!! 

As I mentioned in the previous post, the big brothers were able to join us for the day.  We had fun, good laughs and were able to make memories.  I will mention though, if you are in a cast... plan accordingly.  We had an injured player on our team and he ended up renting a wheelchair.  Most of the rides he wanted to go on, he wasn't allowed due to safety regulations with the wheelchair, so keep that in mind.  Even the rain could not keep the smiles off our faces and we left pretty close to closing time. *(The brothers made it from open to close.)
If you are looking for something to do for spring break or trying to plan summer break, please keep Six Flags in mind!!!
We were invited by Six Flags to attend.  All thoughts are my own.

Bugs Bunny Boomtown, now open and ready #SFOGTHRILLS

We were recently invited to go to attend the Grand Opening of Bugs Bunny's Boomtown at Six Flags Over Georgia and I could not pass up such a fun time!   The big brothers came up for the day and it was full of fun. (Not even the rain could make us leave!)
As a child, I remember taking vacations to Atlanta.  I have been to Six Flags on more than one occasion though the years.  Actually, when I first moved to Atlanta in college, my roommate and I bought Season Tickets because we were going to go often enough for it to be worth it for us.  I hate to admit it, but ever since I had Broxton, I have not been a fan of motion like that.  I can't do roller coasters, trampolines and even car rides drive me crazy. Having a son (and driving near Six Flags all the time) I have been asked several times when I was taking him there.  I honestly have been meaning to take him, but I needed someone to ride with him, so I thought. After spending the day there, I realize now, we can go have a fun day at an amusement park and I don't have to find someone to ride with him!  

Getting ready for the ribbon cutting ceremony for Bugs Bunny Boomtown.  

I immediately went back to being a child as soon as I saw the characters getting ready for the event.  

Of course I had to get Broxton to take his pictures with each of the characters. They were so fun!  Photobombs and all, we were all laughing!  

It was Savannah's first time there, so I had to get her photo with someone.  Porky was nearby and didn't mind posing. See he's even holding on to the stroller. 

The president of Six Flags over Georgia was there.  We actually saw him throughout the day and he always had a smile on his face!!!

Right before the ribbon cutting, everyone was ready!!!

Stay tuned for my next post as I share the rides Broxton enjoyed in Bugs Bunny Boomtown!
(I didn't want to overload you with pictures in one post!) 

 I was invited by Six Flags to go enjoy the day.  All thoughts are my own.
