    “So let me get this straight, if I move this to the right, we’ll go right, and if I move this left, we’ll go left, but no matter what I do we will still just go in one big circle?” “You just don’t get it, do you, sis…”

  77. Kate

    Santa told me a secret Sis,
    that parents always miss.
    He said that on the Eagles’ Flight,
    to stroke the Eagle’s feather.

    this day will last forever.

  84. junetta irvine

    Hesitate to get on the ride, little sister climbs inside the eagle car with big brother. Quickly she grabs hold of the hand rail, while trying to gain her confidence and composure. The eagle car starts moving, and big brother comforts his babe sister by saying, “Don’t worry sissy, you’re safe with me. I’ve got eagle eyes.”

  85. Cary Church

    “To the left….no…to the right! It’s so hard being an eagle in flight”.

  90. Courtney Montel

    “Even though mommy told us to keep our hands at our sides, you move it first! And if you don’t get in trouble I will move it too!”

  91. Lori Fisher

    Keep focus sissy. its just like driving our power wheel at home. the handle is the steering wheel. the buttons are the horn. the only difference is it leaves the ground! maybe we should belt up because im sure this eagle is going to fly high. as soon as it lands im running to mommy and daddy super fast!

  92. Melissa Nicholson

  101. Shannon Darnell

    “I think the rides over…..dont look at them maybe they wont notice and let us ride again!”

  102. James

    Look sissy those people eating ice cream look like ants. Very funny bubba but those are ants eating the ice cream you dropped.

  103. Lisa Madigan

    Careful…Careful….dont pull to hard dont want the ride to stop and have everyone look at us saying…”Ummm yeah what did you two do” just like mom and dad does

  114. Joshua Bunn

    Lets see what this bird can do. I’m sure glad we chose the Americian Eagle to get around, and not the Turkey.

  115. Amy Farmer

    “I’m not so sure about this.”
    “You’re doing fine. Just a little more the right.”

  116. Lynn Yates

  120. Susan Higdon

    Boy: Hey, you think if we fly really hard it will take us to see Grandma in heaven?
    Girl: **smiles** let’s try!!!

  121. Jessica Williamson

    If we learn to fly this eagle, we’ll be a shoe in to fly Santa’s sleigh!

  122. Brice Bowley

  123. Rob Estes

  132. Amy Carter

    Girl: “Are you sure we are old enough to fly this?”
    Boy: “Don’t worry, taking off is easy!” (…it’s the landing I’m unsure of !?!)

  133. Erin Rhodes

    Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

  134. Shannon Bortner

    Ummm I really think we should have made a left turn at the waterpark? It seems we have been by here before….maybe we should land and ask for directons.

  135. Kori Arrick

    Boy: If you turn it this way we will go higher!!!
    Girl: Lets just keep it in the middle so we don’t go so high.
    Boy: It’s will be okay, I am here with you don’t be scared!

    Girl- No silly, They eat bugs and worms.
    Boy- I thought fish only ate worms.
    Girl- No!! If you don’t be careful about what you say, this eagle will think your a slimmy worm too !!

  143. Greg

  145. Tracy Easler

    I wonder if this eagle will take us over to the Mammoth? Let’s try :) I know the way!

  146. Kristine smith

  147. Connie R

    “We are sitting on the back of a giant bird, steering him by his head. When this goes wrong, I’m telling Mom it was all your idea.”

    Mr. Sulu letting Lt. Uhura take the helm during shore leave to 21st century Earth. Who knew that coming to Holiday World would revert them to their childhood counterparts?

    Next stop is the Udderly Blue Ice Cream stand for what appears to be an Andorian’s version of ice cream, and then off to Liberty Launch so they can understand the Terran version of “Beam me up.”
