Silverwood Theme Park | It's out in the middle of nowhere. Well, almost. I live about 3 miles from the park...and I can count on one hand how many times I've been there. It's not that I don't enjoy amusement parks, but it does cost $$ to get in. More than I care to spend. So, when my very awesome friend Laura (who works there) told me about $10 day, I was like, "I volunteer as tribute!"
Okay, that was a 'bordering on sacrilegious' use of a Hunger Games quote...eh, I don't care.

I got talked in to going on two of the rollercoasters. I do NOT enjoy rollercoasters. At all. But I was a good sport. And I was so scared I couldn't even scream. Believe me, I tried. Also, I memorized the rules of the ride, much to the amusement of my friends.
1| Hold the black grab bar
2| Do not stand up
3| Face forward
4| Feet flat on the floor
And I followed those rules religiously. What can I say? I'm a rule follower who is terrified of fast rides.
But, despite my terror, I had a fantastic time spending the afternoon with Brett, Michelle, Matthew, and Laura. The lines were super long, but there's always people watching.
Speaking of people watching, there was a guy walking around the park with a shirt that stated, "Trust me, I'm the Doctor." I was so, so tempted to go up to him and say something like, "I'm sorry, I'm so sorry...but you have two shadows." Or, "Don't blink!" Or...something. But I didn't. Cause I'm a boring person.
