So I just got back from a Six Flags trip, leaving with two cars of rl friends who also play wow on maelstrom. (Grizwald(&his GF), Rux, Bathazar, Azero(&his GF)) and we met up with Sandram, his sister, and his sister's boyfriend.
It was a fantastic time all around, even as a 5'7 hobbit, I was able to ride every single ride, even conquering the mighty "King De Ka" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingda_Ka) with some "minor technical difficulties" including our first car not launching on the track, having to be removed, then them almost launching us off again while the track was still DISCONNECTED from removing the faulty car. All of this was made extra terrifying by the fact that I went man mode and took the front seat with Mark.
I learned that Joey is slightly afraid of roller coasters, but with some persuasion, I convinced him to ride all but the bizarro (because he wasn't feeling well after the first 3-4 in a row) and the King De Ka (I do not blame him at all for not wanting to do this.)
Overall, rode a lot of rides, spent some quality time with friends, got to meet and have a blast with a good friend from wow, nearly died twice from the last ride of the day, and I am currently regretting not applying any sunblock, because I will be suffering from quite the sunburn tomorrow.
When Joey texts me the pictures, I'll put them up here for you all to enjoy/critique. I intelligently decided to leave my iphone in a heated car for 6 hours, and luckily my rubber/plastic layered case prevented it from completely melting, and after some cooling down, it worked completely fine!
took a picture of the sunburn, pretty intense:

Nope, he plays a hpal and a gnome priest on alliance side!
Yeah, I just haven't been to six flags in an extremely long time lol
I rode the Bizarro! It was pretty fun for sure, I prefer the ones with huge drops :P
