To get the kids excited about this trip, we told them about some of the fun things we’d be doing, like visiting Six Flags Great Adventure, home to the (at the time) tallest roller coaster in the world.
After a great time at Padre Island, we started making our way back to San Antonio. We wanted to take the kiddos to Six Flags Fiesta Texas one more time, and we also wanted to stop in Austin and see some old friends from the Queen’s Swing Dance Club.
After being a little underwhelmed at Six Flags Great Adventure, I was interested in seeing if the Texas park was better. Don’t get me wrong—the rides in New Jersey were fun. But the park looked old and the staff wasn’t very friendly. I love amusement parks and roller coasters though, so I’m always willing to give things another try.
