I heard a commercial on the radio for the Wet ‘n Wild water park last weekend and thought, “Wow, that sounds like so much fun!” Not to mention it’s consistently been 106 for the past two weeks. Seriously. Apparently this week I was really into surprise dates.
I’m the worst at keeping my own secret date ideas to myself because I get so excited about them but THIS one, I was determined not to tell until that day. So I kept it all to myself until I sent Mr. Layland these really obvious clues.
He guessed it right on his first try.
HINT #1 – You will need your swimsuit tonight.
HINT #2 – At some point we might feel a little LAZY.
HINT #3 – Things might get WILD!
When we spotted the water park from the road I got really excited. I know it was my surprise for Mr. Layland but I honestly think I was more excited. I tend to get a little enthusiastic about new things and heck – it’s a water park! Who doesn’t love that?
We got there and I felt like it was my first time at Disney World. We stashed our stuff in a locker, snapped a quick pic and we were off!
I won’t go into detail of each ride we went on but I’ll describe my top three.
The Constrictor is a super windy tube slide. It’s dark the whole time and has a few surprising short drops. It was thrilling and we screamed like little girls.
Mammoth Falls was borderline terrifying. We got to cut the line because a mother and son needed another set of two so we only waited for about 20 minutes. The first 10 seconds is a twisted tube slide but then it DROPS. We’re talking Splash Mountain kind of drop…except I was backwards. Backwards! Right before we slipped over the edge I looked over at Mr. Layland and screamed at the top of my lungs. The drop swoops up a wall and you slide down into a shallow pool. All I have to say is, watching the ride in no way prepares you for it!
The third best was another two-person funnel ride, Maximum Velocity. I was surprised at how fast we went, it was just like a roller coaster! It’s a two person ride which was fun because we got to scream as much as we wanted and not bother other riders.
We decided that all the rides are faster and more exciting at night 🙂 It was the most exciting four hours you could have asked for and worth every penny!
That’s life with Mr. Layland & Me!
