"The Ultimate Rush" turns out to be "The Ultimate Birthday Present!"
I am still amazed that Alec and Kenna turned 12 on December 30, 2008. Alec and Kenna are my only two children. Next year they will start middle school. They are defiantly growing up.
A few years back I decided they were getting old enough and they did not need to have a "birthday party" every year. This year was their off year which meant they had to celebrate their birthday with their parents!
We celebrated by going to "The Outback Steak House," their choice, of course. Before we went to dinner they said they had always wanted to go on "The Ultimate Rush" at The Grand Sierra Resort, in Reno, Nevada.
"The Ultimate Rush" combines sky diving, bungee jumping and hang-gliding all in one ride! You are hoisted to the top of a 180 foot skycoaster where the chosen person in your party will "pull" the ripcord. You will then free fall and fly thru the air at over 65 mph. Sounds like quite a rush, doesn't it?
Below are the pictures and a quick video of Alec and Kenna's Ultimate Rush, which by the way, turned out to be the Ultimate Birthday Present!
Alec and Kenna getting geared up and ready to go....Yes, the guys know what they are doing, right?
"O.K. mom, we are ready please stop taking our picture."
They had a blast. Please check out the video, I did not want to bore you with to many pictures.
The Ultimate Rush is located next to The Grand Sierra Resort and Casino on the corner of US 395 and Glendale Avenue, 2500 East Second Street, Reno, Nevada. 89595. Call 775-786-7005 for hours of operation. The cost of the ride is $25 per person, $10 for each additional ride.
