Bolger’s Vacation = Waterslide Wipeouts
I had a great week off with my kids. We went to Hershey Park for a couple of days, so it was my body being propelled at speeds it shouldn’t be!
I don’t know why, but I always wipeout on these waterslides. My body usually gets air born when the tube I am riding on hits the landing pool at the end of the slide. I never see anyone else have a problem, but I always wipeout and often have to be rescued by the lifeguards. This trip was no different. I had an epic fail on this slide.
Lifeguards pulled me out of the pool after I got stuck under the tube that I was riding with my 7 year old daughter. She was still on the tube laughing at her Dad and how he got thrown off it. I wound up at the First Aid station for a pretty good scrape on my knee which I hit on the bottom of the pool. It was quite amusing for the hundreds of people waiting on line to get on the slide!
I did much better on the Roller Coasters. Probably because I was buckled in and secured by a sturdy safety bar. Let’s go for a ride on the Storm runner.
I did that one right after lunch and kept everything down! Here’s video of one of the wooden coasters they have at Hershey. I like the wooden coasters because they seem even more dangerous than the newer ones.
Great memories with my daughter’s, even if I did swallow lots of pool water
