Darien Lake Theme Park!

It did not take me much time to go for the first trip of this tenure here in US. The first weekend itself my roomies wanted to go to a water theme park and I did not say no. After all, it is at their mercy that I can see the places around as I don't own a car. Hmm, I have to take the license and take a car fast. Otherwise you will become too dependent on others...

And this theme park was further north, on the way to Niagra. They did not chose Niagra as they both have been already there. When they are going there again, they want to go with a tourist visa to Canada also so that they can visit Toronto also. And they told me that Niagra is beautiful from Canadian side...

The thing about going north is that it gets colder, and the things were not different here also. The first ride that we took was a water ride and what else to say! That sort of took the steam out of me. I started shivering as soon as I came of water and that shivering continued as I was standing in the queue for the next roller coaster ride. I don't blame the first ride completely for this as there was the added ingredient of nerves before the first roller coaster ride for some time...

The ride was named as Predator and it had a warning written in front that people with back pain, High BP, heart disease etc should not take this ride. But little did I realize that my back will get such a pounding from that ride. It was the worst ride that I have ever been. Not because it was less scary, but it was hurting physically also. Now, that is something that I have not experienced in all the rides that I have taken till now...

Did kayaking for the first time in my life here. It was a nice experience especially trying hard to move it forward in a straight line... :-)

Err, did I mention that I skipped most of the high thrill rides as I was a little scared??? May be not. You know, sometimes somethings are better left unsaid...

And altogether it was a nice first weekend Saturday back in US...
