Anne was a complete trooper-we were at Great America for over 10 hours and she walked the entire time, and never complained. Near the end of the day she said, sort of panicked "Mom! My toes hurt! Every step I take. I don't know why!" I told her that's what happens when you walk all day long! Anne was also great in compromise. I looked up all the rides she could go on and there were about 30 total or so. About 1/3 were kiddie rides, 1/3 were carnival type spinny rides and 1/3 were more grown up faster rides (Log ride, Whizzer, etc). Anne has no desire for those bigger rides. If it were up to her she'd stay in the kiddie section despite being about 3 years older than the age those sections were intended for. But she put that all aside and went on the bigger rides with me and even had a great time! I was so pleased! I cannot wait to go again next year! I'd totally consider going again this year (but it's too expensive not to mention John had to take the day off to watch the other kids and he has no more vacation time). I can't wait to go again next year!
