favorite ride

i’m keeping it simple tonight. yesterday the mister and i, with some of our friends, took the day off work to go to valleyfair and in honor of that, today’s post is about my favorite ride there – the xtreme swing!!!

there it is, to the right of the rollercoaster, in all its glory. i affectionately nicknamed it the french robot because of the color order and the swing parts looking like robot legs. also, it operates on a hydraulics system so steam comes out of it and it makes sounds like when the t-rex approaches in jurassic park. it’s basically a giant swing that goes REALLY high and is the most fun ride ever. my record so far is riding it 5 times in a row. i could easily do 10, i think.
