High in the sky at Six Flags

Taking a break in the fall

Every year as the weather starts to cool, the young men at Westview begin to ask the question, “Are we going to Six Flags this year?” During the school’s fall break, it has been Westview’s habit for everyone on campus to take a little vacation to Arlington, Texas. This year was no exception.

On Friday night the boys spent the evening chasing each other in the laser tag arena, playing video games, digging for prizes in claw machines, and eating pizza. Our friends at It’z Family, Food, and Fun gave our boys a wonderful night of entertainment, including the first experience many of our young men had with virtual reality.

On Saturday the main event began as the guys and their caregivers enjoyed the fun at Six Flags over Texas. Over eight hours in the park gives everyone a wide range of experiences in rides, shows, and some Halloween frights. The truly courageous guys go riding roller coasters with Bev Leigh, one of our caregivers.

This trip stretches some of our guys to their limits, but they always walk away with the same question, “Are we going to Six Flags next year?” We are always grateful to the many friends of our young men who make it possible for us to say, “Yes!”
