Six Flags Great America, Gurnee, Illinois

One day you realize that the summer is almost over with and out of the past two months you've only had one day at an amusement park and you NEED to go ride.  That's where I was early August.  It has been such a messed up summer and sadly it was coming to a close so Bond and I got up early one Thursday morning and headed up to Six Flags Great America for two days of fun, coasters and more coasters.

I grew up hitting then Marriott's Great America each summer and it was nice seeing it's familiar skyline overhead.

Our plan whenever we hit Six Flags Great America is to head straight to the low capacity coasters, namely The Dark Knight and the Ragin' Cajun because after an hour open the lines are well over an hour for both of them.

The Ragin' Cajun to put it lightly massively kicked our asses.  Bond and I sat opposite of each other in the cars and we ended up whipping around like a top.  Our heads were spinning so much we both had a hard time getting off the ride without falling down and had to sit a few minutes while the world stopped spinning around us.

After the spinning in our heads stopped Batman tempted us across the midway for a flight..
