Day 6 - 8/9/08

Surprise Day!

We woke up this morning well-rested and ready to go to the surprise park, Michigan's Adventure. When the park gates opened, we ran to the first ride, a big wooden coaster called Shivering Timbers. We were surprised that we were the only ones running to the ride. I guess they live a very chill life in Michigan! After that, we went on another wooden ride called Wildcat Wolverine, which we thought was a weird name because those are TWO DIFFERENT CREATURES! Then we went on a steel coaster called Corkscrew, which had a very smooth ride. Then we walked to Thunderhawk, which was also very smooth. We then ate at an all-you-can-eat buffet! Yay, unlimited Mountain Dew! Then we did a few more coastery things, and then napped on a grassy patch until it was time to leave. We drove (and had a dance party on the bus) to Chicago, and had time to hang out in our hotel- by swimming at the pool, sleeping in rooms, playing frisbee outside, working out (YEAH RIGHT) in the gym, or doing laundy in the laundry room.
