This weekend was a hot one, I’m talking hot for no reason hot. The dope folks at Six Flags invited us out for a day of fun at their Splashwater Falls inside Hurricane Harbor and a Crab Feast. Yes, they gave us complimentary entrance into the park and then fed us. It doesn’t get any better than this. I shared my roller coaster experience and y’all laughed at me. From here on out it is all water park all the time.
I kept this a surprise until the night before; my kids would ask me about it daily otherwise. In the name of sanity this is the best way to handle things. My kids have never been to Six Flags, this is the first amusement park my daughter has been to that she can remember.
They always do a great job of building the suspense with the signs. The kids got a kick out of finding the next one.
We were greeted by this nice young lady and this scary guy. My daughter was not pleased, she lost it immediately. He does look creepy right?
Because corn goes well with crabs.
All these years my son has only been eating the crab legs. Now that he has this man-size appetite he need more than that. His Dad and I gave him a crash lesson on how to open and eat a crab properly.
We enjoyed corn, crabs, fried chicken, pulled pork, watermelon and cookies. Now it is time to check out the Splashwater Falls.
But first the Bloggy Boo’s (L to R) MimiCuteLips, Moms ‘N Charge & Passenger 156 need a picture. Now we can go…
Six Flags America is debuting new interactive play area inside their water park, Hurricane Harbor. Splashwater Falls is a multi-level play structure that has more than one hundred features. Kids will climb up ladders, swish down open and enclosed slides, and navigate varying platforms.
You can stay cool by playing under waterfalls, spouting geysers, and spraying fountains. A super-sized tipping bucket sits atop the huge play structure dumping water on everyone underneath. This thing was popular, let me show you how it works.
You can see the spouting geysers to the right and the tube slides to the left.
I tried to catch the bucket dumping in actions so you can see just how much water it is. My 4 year old is in this picture; she loved standing under the bucket dumping. She was all kinds of brave.
The kids aren’t taking this “craft theme” a bit too serious.
Don’t think this is a kids only type of deal. I saw plenty of adults getting in on the action with no kids in sight.

After spending about four hours at Splashwater Falls we decided to check out the lazy river.
Cover Up: I scored this Marimekko Terry Cloth Cover Up for $5.98. Original price $29.99
Only I never quite made it because we went to the pool. The lazy river goes all around this pool. Babe and the kids checked it out while I took in some Vitamin D from the sun.
This is my daughters first time with all of this water play. She made a friend and they had so much fun. They raced and played games, it was just cute to see their imaginations at work.
While the girls splashed around me, I got some much needed R&R in. It suddenly didn’t seem so hot after all. My son enjoyed some of the other water activities geared towards the big kids. Now that he is older I can allow him to go on and explore a little bit. Controlled independence is what I call it.
We had an amazing time, we look forward to coming back. Thanks again to the fab folks at Six Flags for taking such great care of us. Family memories were made.
