Florida Trip: The Parks!






We went to 3 theme parks while we were in Florida. The Magic Kingdom, and both Universal Parks. We were going to go to Seaworld, too. But by the end of the trip - we were tired and just wanted to lay by the pool. Ha ha.

The weird thing about me is, I'm a pretty big scaredy cat, I hate spiders and I'm a little bit claustrophobic. I am also a little bit afraid of heights. 

But contradictory to all of that - I'm sort of an adrenaline junkie. I LOVE ROLLER COASTERS! The more twists, turns and flips - the better! My favorite coasters that I went on are: The Hulk, The Dragon Challenge and Rip Ride Rockit. I went on all of those like 4 times. I also like the Revenge of the Mummy. Anyway, here are a few photos from the theme parks. Very poor quality, as I only had my point & shoot and really didn't edit. But you get the idea :)

Universal's - Islands of Adventure!

{oops i repeated the bottom left photo... oh well!}

Universal Studios! 

 
{The Rip Ride Rockit.  This roller coaster was AWESOME! When you sat in your seat, you got to choose which song you wanted to listen to as you were twisting around the track! I rode this thing 4 times and 3/4 times I chose to listen to Fergie's "Glamous". I don't know why but for some reason it seemed like the perfect coaster song. Oh and the best part about it....we went completely vertical on the way up. It was the scariest thing ever! But I LOVED it! }

{here we are testing out the seats before the ride. it was weird that there was nothing around my shoulders!}
{you may not know this about me, but i love that Fast & Furious movies. i'm a total nerd. this is one of the cars from the newest movie of the series - "Fast Five". which by the way, was an awesome movie!}

Disney's - The Magic Kingdom

{big huge candy store - yes please!!}
