I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Wet Ones. I received free admission to Six Flags, attended an informational and complimentary luncheon, and received a gift bag and promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
Last weekend the family and I got to go to Six Flags Over Texas! When we were first invited to go, I wasn’t sure there would be much for my little kids to do there, because I could only remember going to Six Flags Great America in Chicago as a teen. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Six Flags Over Texas has a whole entire section devoted to the littles, as well as many rides throughout the park that are perfect for the whole family.
Once we got to the park, we met up with a bunch of other Dallas area bloggers, as well as Stacy DeBroff (CEO of Mom Central), and Chenier from Wet Ones. We got to spend some free time in the Looney Toons USA section of the park where all the little kid rides are located. Hanna totally surprised us by wanting to go on the Taz’s New York Adventure ride that goes up in the air and then drops down… So not the Hanna-who’s-scared-of-heights that we are used to! We could see this look on her face that said, “I’m scared, but I really want to be brave and have fun!”
Then, as a group, we headed over to lunch at JB’s Smokehouse where we got to eat some delicious food and learn more about the park and Wet Ones wipes. There were a bunch of Wet Ones Hand Wipes on the tables so we could clean up and de-germ before eating lunch. It was a bajillion degrees out and Nick even wiped his face with one and said it was really refreshing. It was great to learn that Wet Ones kill 99.99% of bacteria, especially when your kids have been going on rides where tons of other kids (and their cooties) have just been. Wet Ones were a great way to quickly clean up when there wasn’t always a bathroom right around the corner to wash hands in.
After lunch, we all headed over to the Wet Ones Karaoke Gazebo where some of the kids had a blast singing to their favorite songs. (Courtney from My Crazy Savings’ girls were totally adorable!) Hanna was being too shy and Oliver was only interested in getting the mics to sing his own song. But, then we saw the Gold River Adventure ride and the kids were begging to go on it. We had gotten a few front-of-the-line passes so we used them to jump to the front and take a ride through. It was a perfect ride for the whole family and a really nice break from the heat. Liam was zonked out in the stroller, but if he had been awake even he could have gone.
When we first arrived at the park the kids had spotted the Boomtown Depot train that takes riders around the whole park. We went through one loop around the park on the train and then stopped for some Slurpees on our way back towards the Looney Toons USA area. We didn’t make it back from our train ride in time to get a funnel cake with Chenier and some of the other bloggers, but the pics on Instagram looked so tasty!
Once we got back over to Looney Toons USA, the kids went on a few more rides. Hanna loved the Daffy Duck’s Capitol Tours ride. It was this bus that went up and down in a big circle. The line was pretty empty so she kept getting off and back on again like 8 times in a row. After that they went on Speedy Gonzales’ Truckin’ Across America a few times before we had to call it quits. We were all super hot, but it was just getting to be too much for little Liam. We had more than enough fun and we’re sweaty and dirty enough to prove it. I’m glad we had some Wet Ones handy to clean up afterwards! We headed home and the kids were all zonked out in the cooled-off car within 5 minutes after we left!
