Free thrills

Like most people, Matt and I enjoy free things. We also enjoy roller coasters. Therefore, we couldn't say no to the free admission offered to military this month at Knott's Berry Farm.
We kicked off our day by standing in an hour-long line for the Silver Bullet, only to have it break down when we were in front of the line. Luckily, the ride made up for it.
Super Scream was also well worth the wait, and I was even able to get a couple pictures on the way up... and down.
The rest of the day was spent pulling a few G's on roller coasters like Xcelerator, Montezuma's Revenge, and our favorite, Ghostrider. Although for Matt, who's flown in a couple super sonic jets recently, it wasn't quite as thrilling. He leaned over and commented that these rides are probably pretty dull for fighter pilots. He's probably right.
It was fun to go on big thrill rides as opposed to the calmer variety that we mostly go on at Disneyland, but to be honest, we'd pick Disney any day. I think that means we're getting older. Disney is just perfect, though. It's so much cleaner, has fast passes, hosts nicer patrons, and we shouldn't even have to mention how perfectly themed our beloved park is. But hey, it's nice to have your stomach drop every once in a while (seriously), so thanks for the good times, Knott's! We appreciate companies who appreciate the military, and I'm sure we'll be back.


  1. Glad you had fun! My favorite time to go is for Halloween for "Knotts Scary Farm"!

  2. Oh my gosh you did not take your camera on the rollercoaster haha! What if it fell?! lol looks like you had fun!

  3. Wow looks like you had loads of fun!

  4. Ally- I totally wasn't planning on it, but I didn't want to leave it in my purse to get stolen while I was on the ride, so I looped/tied it to my belt loop and put it in my pocket. Then when we were on our way up, I was like, "Hey! I have my camera!" So I pulled it out (but kept it attached) & took a couple pictures haha. The lady at the bottom was oh-so-unhappy about it.

  5. We are planning on going this weekend, simply because it's free!! haha! I don't think any theme park could ever compare to Disney!

  6. Whenever I think of Knott's Berry Farm all I think of Berry pie. Just the name makes me drool. It doesn't seem right that it's just a theme park.

  7. That looks Ike soooo much fun! I too was amazed you had your camera on the ride, haha. I love going on rides like that, it's funny to think that for some people (fighter pilots) those rides would be dull! To me they are so thrilling! Oh and i can't help but notice you are wearing shorts... and i'm feeling a lille jealous. Hehe.
