USS Midway

 

DSC02465Being a San Diego Local I have always always passed by this beauty but I had never been on it to explore. This is surprising because everyone I had to talked to said they have gone on it. Even my cousin said it was her favorite museum. I heard this is one of the only midway museums in the United States. When we arrived we were asked where we were from and apparently we were the first locals for the day. From the deck of the USS Midway you get a nice view of the San Diego Bay as well as the city. Lots of cool vintage planes aboard this actual aircraft ship carrier midway.

DSC02461This Camouflage air craft just caught my eye and was different than all the other aircrafts. Hahah my outfit kind of reminds me of jumpsuits that pilots wear 😛DSC02445This was the biggest aircraft it was so spacious it probably held giant materials or maybe some giant bombs. DSC02437Lets go! My partner and I are ready to take off! IMG_6188We got to see all the aircrafts as well as go inside of some of them. I can not believe how many buttons there are to fly an aircraft. I like how interactive it is. Here inside pretending to be flying around for the journey of a lifetime. There is an audio tour but we decided to skip it this time. It looks like a giant remote control phone that everyone had their ear on.

DSC02459It is interesting to see all the different rooms of the USS Midway including the kitchens, rooms and everything else. Here I am messing around with the radio frequencies trying to spy on others.

This place is huge. Lots of places to explore, some of them are even hidden. We did not even get to explore the whole thing before it closed. We will be back next time and check out everything that we missed.

Brick or Treat

IMG_6148This year for Brick or Treat at Legoland, California we decided to head over the waterpark for the first time ever. It was everyones first time at the Legoland Waterpark. For everyone minus me it was the first time they had ever gone to a water park.

IMG_6139The water park was lots of fun. I was surprised to see that all of the waterslides and pools were nice and heated with the exception of one ride. The pirate reef was an actual like mechanical ride inside of the waterpark. We ended up having lots of fun exploring here. There was not a lot of people and line for any of the attractions. We then headed off to Legoland right at the start of Brick or Treat. We did not bring costumes this year since we barely had space for our extra clothes and swim suits in our backpacks.

I am always amazed at everyones cool costumes. It is definitely the perfect start to the halloween spirit. We got to go inside the aquarium and got to touch sea anemones for the first time. They kind of felt like gummies and were a bit sticky. With treat stations all over the park, we were able to get lots of candy and treats. There were lots of shows, attractions and Halloween decorations through out the park. Check out the video below of our adventure. Brick or Treat continues every Saturday in October.

 

Boomont Park

DSC02462A San Diego Classic Belmont Park has been transformed into Boomont Park to be in tune with the halloween spirit. The park is decorated with lots of halloween decorations and even pumpkin lights above the whole park. The perfect way to start getting excited for all hallows eve.

DSC02646The laser tag is transformed with zombies but do not worry it is not too scary. We did not try out the laser tags but apparently there are zombies dressed up and you just shot them. There is also trick or treating available from 6:30 pm to 7:30pm through out Belmont Park. There is also a pumpkin patch where you can decorate one after you purchase it with all supplies included. You can come make awesome Jack o Lantern with all the materials they have here. Boomont Park runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and October 31st for some awesome Halloween fun.

IMG_6030 IMG_6037This is the first time any of us have ever been to Belmont park and we got to enjoy lots of rides, attractions and some halloween fun. We rode classic rides like the carousel, bumper cars, train rides, krazy kars and the crazy submarine. They have lots of attractions that we did not even get to try them all out. We tried Lazer Maze which we thought was laser tag but it was like a 007 movie where you try to avoid touching the lasers. We then headed off and attempted to play mini golf. There is a cool end to the course and if your able to make it in like a skee ball the volcano explodes and you get a gift card to the arcade. I wish someone would have made it, would of been awesome to see this giant volcano explode. I am surprised that everyone was feeling so adventurous and decided to go on the zip line. Check out our awesome video below. I also included some of my Instagram stories at the end.

DSC02653We had so much fun that no one ever wanted to leave. Be sure to go and check out all the fun at Boomont Park before it ends! For more information check out http://www.belmontpark.com/boomontpark.

I received complementary rides and attractions, but all opinions are my own.
