Ericka in Wonderland

Going into Wonderland, I had two missions — Funnel Cake and Bungee Jumping. I am happy to report that I had fulfilled my duties. The funnel cake is a dessert that is very popular in Canada. The first time I had one, or actually shared one was my first trip to Wonderland. Wonderland, on the other hand, is the largest theme park in the country. Two of my favourite rides would be the Leviathan and the Behemoth. Those two are the tallest roller coaster in the park. It just makes sense because I ain’t afraid of heights. I love the adrenaline rush so I just have to go and do it — again and again.

We planned our rides since the popular rides have waiting time on them. We only went to the big rides for brave people (that’s what I said). And by dinner time, we knew it was time for some Funnel Cake because Wonderland would not be complete without that sweet thing. Here I am (below photo) just enjoying the heavenly, deep fried, sugar powder, strawberries and ice cream on top thing. My sweet tooth was satisfied. Funnel Cake costs around $15-$20.

Though its height is only half of the Leviathan (the taller one than Behemoth), you get more adrenaline rush from it because you are only attached through strings or wires or whatever they call it and then they drop you from the tower (150 feet drop). Here is a better vision of what I am trying to say:

We were in Tower 2 and I volunteered to pull the thing that would trigger the free fall. It was not free after all because we had to pay $20 each, there were three of us in one flight, on top of the Wonderland ticket costing $40 each. I did not regret paying for it because it was an awesome experience. It was scary at first when they were pulling us up the tower but once we were at the top of the tower and I could see the whole of Wonderland, I just blurt out to myself what Charlie from the Perks of Being a Wallflower said:

“I swear in that moment, we were infinite”

And I really felt it. In that tiny moment, I felt infinite like anything was possible. I was infinite like I own the world and I can do whatever the hell I want and get away with it.

I am infinite.
