Wet and Wild Emerald Pointe

SmugMug Daily Link

We took a break yesterday and went with the Kidd Family to Wet and Wild Emerald Pointe in Greensboro, NC.  As you can see, we had a splashing good time!  We got there when they opened at 10, left when they closed at 7, and hit almost every attraction in the park:-)

The ride we liked the least was the one I thought would be the best. It was the Tunnel of Terror.  Somehow I missed that the whole ride would be in the dark.  Go figure!  I thought it was going to be like the Tornado at Great Wolf Lodge but it wasn't.  Our favorite ride was the Dragon's Den.  You drop out of the tube into an open air sphere where you circle around a big dragon and then finally go into his mouth and out another shoot to end the ride.  Fun stuff!

I had my Kodak EasyShare Sport C123 camera around my wrist the ENTIRE day and took about 150 pics.  Not the quality of my regular camera but a great way to get some fun pics around lots of water.  The kids kept begging me to try to get them under water.  I was just glad the park staff had no issues with me taking it onto the rides with a wrist strap.

We felt the lines were a bit slow yesterday.  One of the lifeguards said a typical day is 3000 folks and somehow there were over 7000 yesterday.  Wow!  I would go again but try a weekday.
