Six Flags Day

Our company paid for everyone to go to Six Flags, New England yesterday. It went off without a hitch, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, so I consider it a success! It was the very first event that I've ever planned - I'm so glad that it went well. I took a few photos, but since bags aren't allowed in most ride lines I didn't have my camera on me as often as I had thought I would.

As soon as we stepped inside the gates, we made a beeline for this ride, aptly named "Scream".

I definitely screamed. Like a little girl. It raises you up in the air, all at once and unexpectedly. And then it raises you to the very top, and drops you without warning. So two scares in one ride. Perfect! You can see we had lovely weather. ^_^ Here's a nice pic of our COO (to the left), a random child, and our Patient Advocate (to the right).

My team consisted of one of our java programmers, myself, and our HR Director (my boss - who is awesome, BTW. No joke.) Scooby and Scrappy were unfortunately not part of our team.

Another team got an awesome photo with Wonder Woman and Robin, the Boy Wonder!

Since it wasn't too hot out, there were lots of characters out and about all day. Here's a nice shot of Bugs Bunny's bum. Also some other folks you might recognize! Daffy and Pepe!

This guy, from the commercials, is much more creepy in person than you might think. Very weird.

One of the things I was most impressed with were the flowers throughout the park. Their gardeners/landscapers did a fabulous job. Check these out!

I wish I could create hanging baskets like those! The mixture of flowers and different colored and textured leaves makes for a fabulous palette...

  1. Lovely Photographs! I'm terribly scared of rides, am a total wuss. My mom on the other hand, will be up for a rollercoaster ride at any time of day or night. Hee.


All the world's a stage! But for now, just type your soliloquy here.
