On Sunday I went to Great America with Gene, Christine, Adam, Nuala and Garren. It was an excellently sized group, a gorgeous day, and there was a new ride titled “Firefall”. Let me tell you a little about Firefall.


was Christine’s reaction upon first seeing it.

And then the water burst into flames.

It was AWESOME. “FIRE!” I would yell at random intervals when halfway across the park.

As is to be expected when Great America-ing with Christine and I: we went on Delirium three times. One of those times, I tried to explain my love affair with the ride to Garren (who had been a Delirium virgin up until yesterday).

Me: Delirium is like great sex.

Garren: “Wha…Wha..What?”

Me: Well when it’s good it’s like your whole body is swirling around and you get sort of light-headed and then at the end you feel fantastic.

Garren proceeded to chortle through the entire ride. Which I guess might also happen during great sex. I can’t tell if it’s just because I’ve been reading too many romance novels lately or because I’m reaching the peak of female sexuality (getting old, people) but I could have ridden Delirium all day long. I’m just saying.
