I recently heard they've renovated Monster Plantation at Six Flags...if you refer to it as a "mansion" I will disavow any knowledge of which you speak.
I stumbled upon this video someone made just riding through, if you can watch in high quality it helps through the darker sections. To this day, I remember loving the theme song to the ride but couldn't remember any of the words except "...humans are allowed today."
At some point when I was in high school I went and it was so crowded I got to ride 5 things over the course of a day and paid $3 for a Coke out of a machine. Seriously though I haven't been to Six Flags in close to 10 years. Even worse I remember when the Mindbender was painted brown. But I'm sure eventually I'll get over the bad experience and $3 Coke machine expenses (which I assume is close to $5 now).
Anyway, harken back to better days and enjoy your long weekend.
In what little Dawg news I have, I did tune into the baseball game in the top of the 9th when we let the Razorbacks tie it up. It would have been pretty killer to have doubled up the runner at second but if nothing else the moron dislocated a finger for his efforts. I missed the winning run but caught the replay after I flipped back from The Weather Channel...Go Dawgs!
