Today was La Ronde... Again with friends Joel and Philippe...
It was their first time on a Roller Coaster... They seemed keen at the beginning so we chose 'Le Monstre'
A) because it's a Wooden classic.
B) because it's a rough and tumble one. (If that manage that, then the rest should have been golden...
So after a 25 min wait... not bad for The end of July on a sunny day.... we were on our way up!
Well no sooner were we on our way up then it started to spit rain! We got through the ride, and the Toulousians seemed no worse for the ware.
We got a bite to eat and then headed over to the Goliath. after the rumble of Le Monstre the Goliath would be like a dream... It's soooooo smooth. We made it through that line in about 15 mins... it always goes fast there. But it seems it was a bit too much for Philippe who kept his eyes closed throughout and Joel only barely had his eyes open.
After that we toned it down and watched the Diving show.
More walking and then we looked at the Vampire... and Cobra and and and. The Toulousians took the 'value added' 6 minute Helicopter ride and enjoyed it, but I thought the $55 per person ticket price was just a bit much.
and then decided to call it a day.
Oh Yea! We party-hardy!
