The SkyCoaster Rocks!

Blue Slate Solutions has an annual family day and for the past couple of years it has been held at our local Six Flags (The Great Escape) in Lake George, NY.  This year it was held on September 14.  The weather looked suspicious in the morning but brightened up and cooperated throughout the afternoon and evening.

One ride that my family has considered on previous visits is The SkyCoaster.  If you are not familiar with the ride you can read about it at skycoaster.com.  The version at The Great Escape is 175 feet tall.

This year we went beyond the consideration stage and took flight!  We had a couple of coupons that allowed us to purchase two groups of three for one-third off.  Lisa did not think that she wanted to ride it so the plan was for Sarah and me to ride a couple of times with others that had made the trek.

Lisa took a video of our first ride.  She also decided that it looked like fun, so she took my place on the second ride.  Lisa tends to scream on rides, and this one was no exception!  I took over the video responsibilities and watched with Michael and a friend of his.  The two boys have decided that they want to give it a try next year.

All of us who took the plunge highly recommend this attraction.  Videos of our two rides are on YouTube:
