My dragon boy, who was so disappointed the day before about not being able to go to a haunted house, kept saying that he wanted to go to Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is a seaside amusement park in Santa Cruz. He was talking about a haunted house we had come across this past summer while passing by. Of course my dragon wanted to go in but I forced him to give up. He would not forget about that, would he?
The Boardwalk is kind of retrospect. It made sense to me that it is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The biggest roller coaster there is all made up of wood structure. We hadn’t gone there much because dragon was little and we didn’t want to spend a lot of money. Finally we decided to go on the condition that we only enter the haunted house.
Once at the Boardwalk, we headed straight to the haunted house. Casey pushed an unpleasant job on me, saying to dragon, “Why don’t you go with Mommy?” At the entrance we were told that the attraction was not recommended for children under 13 years old but that it was OK to go with adults. We were also reminded that even if we got scared and came back there would be no refund. As what was said exactly showed, the haunted house was so well made and dreadfully scary. Not only that, it was long. While my dancing princess and Casey waited outside, my dragon and I barely made our way out, hand in hand. Dragon simply said, “No more....” He had more than enough of that.
The weather was so nice that I felt like riding the ropeway to enjoy the ocean view from up above. Well, I didn’t think much. As soon as I got on I regretted it. It went so high and was so scary (^_^:). My whole body went rigid and couldn’t move until we got off. I couldn’t let my left arm off the railing but managed to take a few pictures.
