Almost five hours of fun and rides before a tornado warning sent everyone running for cover.  We spent about a half an hour in the Johnny Rockets bathroom corridor as our "evacuation shelter".  There were a few tense moments as people were reading reports on their smart phones of tornadoes touching down within a mile of us.  The power flickered, but never went off.

When the downpour slowed to a more mild downpour, we gave Sophie the only poncho we brought and headed for the car- via the gift shop of course.  Had a crazy detour of a ride home due to downed trees, and came home to a house without electricity.  We put on dry clothes, headed to IHOP for dinner, and our power was on when we got home.
