When I used to go to the park, there weren’t nearly as many rides as there are today, and we quickly memorized the layout of the park. My siblings and I each had our favorite rides, and we would map out our strategy for the day as we drove to the park. The first stop was always the inner tube barn, where you dug through the pile to find the perfect tube. Once you found the tube that was just the right size (being petite, I had to hunt for a small enough tube that I wouldn’t fall through), you hung on to it all day, even taking it back to your picnic table during lunch for safe keeping. I have so many warm memories of fun summer days spent at Schlitterbahn!
