New articles released every Monday!
Sometimes it's the little things in life that mean the most, and these 5 simple pleasures prove just that. While not extravagent by any means, these few things make my day at the park just that much better.
Enjoying An Unhealthy Snack or Dessert:
While Six Flags Over Texas has many dining options healthier than your typical piece of pizza or funnel cake, there's no question that the park has lots of sweet treets and snacks too. Ice cream, funnel cakes, cookies, french fries, and milkshakes just to name a few! While I typically try to avoid eating this type of food during my visits, sometimes it's okay to let loose for a day and enjoy a snack or meal that I've been craving. It doesn't cost me anything (other than a few calaries) thanks to my All Season Dining Pass, but it can make my day at the park just a little bit better!
Buying A Souvenir That Catches My Eye:
Even though I visit the park two or three times each week, I still love getting souvenirs every once in a while to add a bit of a Six Flags touch to my day no matter where I am. My favorite item to collect are of course pins, and every time I see a new one I just have to add it to my collection. In addition, I also have a couple of mugs, t-shirts, and other fun items from the park's many shops. Sometimes it's okay to splurge on a souvenir or two, and even if it's just $5, it's a simple pleasure that I always love doing.
Walking Around And Not Riding Any Rides:
I've mentioned this in a couple of my previous articles, but walking around the park and not riding any rides can sometimes be one of my favorite things to do. Often times, I, as well as many others, get caught up in riding as many rides as possible on any given day. While there is no problem with doing so, I sometimes like to slow things down and just enjoy the atmosphere created by the park. People watching, enjoying shows, and taking pictures can be just as much fun, if not more fun sometimes, than riding New Texas Giant 20 times back to back! (Yes, I've done it.)
Improving My Justice League: Battle For Metropolis Score:
This is always a fun one for me! Improving my high score on Justice League: Battle For Metropolis is something that I always love doing on a hot or rainy day at the park. I currently have a high score of 971,200, and I am constantly trying to max it out with 999,999 points! Even if your goal isn't to max the ride out, simply discovering new bonus targets and easter eggs can be a great way to spend your time. It's a simple pleasure for me that doesn't require anything special. Anyone can do it!
Popping In For A Short Morning Or Evening At The Park:
While most of my visits are from park opening to park closing, sometimes popping in for an hour or two in the morning or evening is a simple pleasure that I have. I always like to consider them "bonus visits," as most of the time, I didn't plan on visiting until that day. Again, this is nothing big or extravagant, but to me it's a simple thing that I always enjoy doing.
