Okay, so we took our 7 year old DS to Knott's Berry farm over the winter break. He's really into the Peanuts cartoons right now, so he loved it. While in Camp Snoopy, he saw a roller coaster ride called the Sierra Sidewinder -- and he WANTED to ride it. Thankfully my husband and my SIL (who was with us) are okay on roller coasters (I, on the other hand, don't do roller coasters! lol) so they took him on it with them. 

He was laughing as he got off the ride and wanted to go on a ride that would take him upside down! WTH?! lol. So later in the day he went on Montezuma's Revenge -- its considered a "level 5" thrill ride. 

DS really enjoyed those rides, but I think after those 2 he had his fill for the day -- he wanted to go back to Camp Snoopy and enjoy the slower paced rides. LOL.

^^Aidan and daddy on the Sierra Sidewinder after the ride was over^^

^^My DH trying to get Aidan to wave at me. I think Aidan was still thinking, "what the heck just happened?!" lol^^

^^My DH, Aidan and my SIL posing outside the ride. I had to take a pic of the first roller coaster Aidan rode on^^

^^He loved taking a pic with Lucy^^

 So cute!!  I love the one with Snoopy just hugging him!!

How amazing the head phones did not fall off on a roller coaster!!!  Does he wear those often, and if so how does he do with them?  We're trying to get my son use to his as noises bother him so.  Great if your son keeps them on!

My DH said that he took the headphones off Aidan during the rollercoaster ride, but that once the ride stopped, the wanted them back on again. lol. 

We got them from Home Depot for around $20. I think my DH found them in a section where they sell headphones for gardeners and people who work with loud lawn equipment. 

We just bought them for him this last week since we also went to a place called Farrell's Ice Cream shop and it can get pretty noisy in there. So far he doesn't mind having them on. 

^^That is Aidan at the ice cream shop -- like I said, it gets loud in there, so he kept them on almost the entire time we were there^^

 That is awesome, I bet my boys would love the rides. Ever since I had kids, I don't do rollercoasters either.
