Well the topic over at Illustration Friday for this week was "visitors." It just so happens that my wife and I took our kids to Lagoon this week for their first "visit." I wasn't really sure what to expect since both our kids are under 50 inches and most of the "good" rides insist you are over the 50 inch benchmark.
Turns out... it wasn't an issue. Not for my boy anyway.
Once the Terror-Ride was discovered it was all over. My 3 year-old boy wanted to ride nothing else. He rode it a total of 3 times and Dracula's castle once. A 3 year-old. Yeah... I remember being like 8 and convincing myself that it wasn't scary. Not only was he NOT scared, but he genuinely seemed entertained... almost excited. I guess most parents would be a tad concerned that their 3 year-old son got his kicks in a spook house ride where mannequins are being tortured and diced up... but I'm not most parents. I was down right proud of the kid! Me being the Halloween-Lover that I am and all, it nearly brought a tear to my eye to witness the little man following in his old man's footsteps.
Ah... the joys of parenthood.
