Ok, I hate to admit this, but I am! My DH and I took our kids to Six Flags New England this weekend, and we had a great time! The water park was terrific and they had such a great time on all of the rides and all, but to be honest, the whole time I found myself comparing it to Disney. Granted they are two different entities, Six Flags should get credit for improving what used to be Riverside ten fold! But, at Disney you never see garbarge all over the place, you rarely see Cast Members ignoring guests and suiting their own needs (those who do, I am sure will be given a talking too!), and Disney always tries to put their best foot forward!
We had a great time but, we decided to stay for the “Glow in the Dark” parade, the kids enjoyed it, but DH and I kept shooting one another “the Look” that said, “are you kidding!” The parade had a knock off Malifacent type character in it, which was my first “Huh?” trigger, then each proceeding “float” was a bundle of problems. Half of the float did not light up and you could tell that it was supposed to. They had the Riddler walk around and hold a stick that had two “jailbirds” hanging off from each side, that type of costume was repeated three other times for different character representations. In all, if you have never been to Disney, you wold have been impressed, since that is the not the case for us, it only made me miss “the World” even more!
Sorry to vent, but I thought I should give Disney the credit for the efforts they put into their attractions and to making their guests completely immersed in their “fantasy!”
