Six Flags Magic Mountain is the Best Place to Go for Thrills

Amusement parks have been around for years, entertaining many. There is Knott’s Berry Farm, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and many more. These amusement parks are fun and all but there is one amusement park that rules them all, Six Flags. Six Flags is one of the best amusement parks to go to if you want to have fun and experience the thrills of the coasters.


I could list so many amazing rides at Six Flags, but there are two, in particular, that are a must-ride—Lex Luther: Drop of Doom and Twisted Colossus. These two rides are ten times better than any other found at amusement parks.


Lex Luther: Drop of Doom stands at a height of 400’ and drops you from that height. Once you rise to the top, you stay there for a little bit until the inevitable happens and… free fall! When comparing this ride to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Disney World, it clearly is the winner. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror only has a 131’ drop, a 269’ difference.


The other ride that proves the Six Flags is the best amusement park for thrills is Twisted Colossus. This ride is so delightful to ride because of all the corkscrew turns and drops. Not only that, you can ride the roller coaster two times since there are two tracks for different experiences. Not even HangTime from Knotts Berry Farm can beat this ride. HangTime may be the first and only dive coaster in California, it cannot compete with the twist and turns of Twisted Colossus.


The Best Cartoon Network Show

After some careful consideration, and a lot of re-watching, I have come to the controversial decision that Steven Universe is, in fact, the best Cartoon Network series on the network. The show has so many layers to it: an absolute arsenal of amazing songs– there is legitimately not one bad song produced in the course of the entire show– and lovable characters with human flaws, even if they are mostly gems. I think that is one of the aspects that I truly love about the show: not one character is perfect. That is such an important message to give to young children, (or young adults, I’m not going to pretend I don’t still watch it, and won’t continue to watch it well into my adulthood). The show even tackles real-world issues like abusive relationships, prejudice, and presents a lot of representation for the LGBTQIA+ community, BIPOC and even disabled persons. Rebecca Sugar knew exactly what she was doing with the show, and it will always hold a fond place in my heart.


The Best Color Of All

Have you looked at the color yellow lately? Yellow is the best color in the whole entire world. It has a range of different shades, and all of them are absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention that yellow can go with everything. Yes, I mean everything.

If it is a color, then yellow can complement it. I know it may seem hard to believe, but I promise you that this color helps every other one by making it so happy. Blue and yellow, yellow and black, purple and yellow, are all amazing color combinations even though they sound like they should not fit each other.

Yellow is a symbol of happiness and love. It is the color of sunshine and greatness. It is very hard to look at the color yellow and feel mad or sad. You must smile when looking at the beauty that is yellow.

Give yellow a try, and let me know how you love it. I promise you, once you say yellow is your favorite color, you will never want to go back. Your life will be changed forever. Your welcome.


What is the Best Burger Chain in the West?

Burgers, hotdogs, shakes, and fries are iconic staples of American culture, originating from the popularity of diners in the 1950s. The most iconic item that arguably defines any diner’s value is the burger; a beef patty with vegetables and condiments stacked between two pieces of bread. Some popular burger chains now include Five Guys, Shake Shack, Wendy’s, and Habit Burger Grill. However, there is one burger chain that reigns supreme in the West: In-n-Out. In-n-Out is an iconic burger chain from the West, renowned for its small menu that consists of burgers with a special sauce, freshly cut fries, and delicious shakes.


In-n-Out is the best burger chain in the West, because of the quality of the ingredients and the fresh preparation of the food. The meat, arguably the most important part of any burger, undergoes intense quality control — which is reflected in the flavor of the meat. Also, the special sauce, made out of ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard, pulls the burger together and encourages you to come back for more. The freshly cut fries and thick shakes all add up to make dining at In-n-Out a memorable and familiar experience that leaves you wanting more. At such an affordable price, it’s no surprise that people travel from across the country to visit In-n-Out.
