Voted the World’s Best Seaside Park

Fireball, 2007

Spring Semester 2007 at San Jose State had just ended and one of my best friends and I wanted to start the summer off right.

After driving Highway 17, we arrived at the Boardwalk and immediately fixed our hunger with a corndog. Later we ended up in front of one crazy looking ride – FIREBALL! Anyone who has ever been on it, knows how to say it. We sat down, fastened our seatbelts and began one of the scariest rides of our lives. For the rest of the day all we were saying was “FIREBALL!”

As we began walking toward the carousel, Juanita realized her phone was missing. Her phone had dropped from Fireball and landed in the corner of the ride area but didnt have a single scratch on it. Her phone is now named Fireball.

We ended the day with a ride on the carousel where we BOTH got rings go into the clown’s mouth.
