The Hornswoggler Family Hershey Park Leader Board

The family spent the front half of the week at Hershey Park, which I suppose is our favorite theme park (since we go there more than anywhere else). We had a lot of fun, got very tired, and only suffered slightly from the sun and crowds.

Most importantly, Hershey has eleven roller coasters, and my two sons -- Thing 1, eleven years old and about 5'4", and Thing 2, eight years old and a little shy of five feet -- were all tall enough to go on all of the thrill rides there.

And so the final tally was:
  • Thing 2, with a perfect 11 rollercoasters
  • (tie) Thing 1, with 10 (missing the newest, most "extreme" coaster, Fahrenheit, since he did it last year)
  • (tie) G.B.H. himself, with 10 (missing the Roller Soaker, a lousy "water roller coaster" with huge lines and minimal thrills)
  • The Wife, who was enticed to go on one coaster, and regretted it the rest of the day
By next year, the boys may not need me at all. And I'm not sure if I'll be looking forward to that, or regretting it.
