Campbell was fascinated by his surroundings. Since he loves dogs we thought this cute little doggie ride would be the perfect start to his adventure. Campbell said he wanted to ride with me so the two of us got in line while Scott stood with Bennett, camera in hand, waiting to capture the huge smile on Campbell's face once the little ride took off.
And that's when Campbell lost his mind.
Yall. He screamed so loud all of Silver Dollar City could hear it. At first I tried to console him and tell him it was okay, that I was right behind him, and I was holding him tightly. But he didn't care. He continued to scream at the top of his lungs and I couldn't help but laugh especially since everyone was watching us.
Before the ride even got started, the operator allowed Scott and Campbell to get off so Silver Dollar City wouldn't have to continue to hear Campbell's screams of terror.
At this point Scott and I weren't real sure what to do but we were certain that we were already emotionally and physically exhausted and we hadn't even been there an hour yet. We suggested some ice cream so Campbell was excited about that. We took a little ice cream break then tried to get on the carousel.
We got kicked off of a carousel. Because my child was afraid of it.
This was the ultimate low moment.
I looked at Scott and said "let's get out of here" and that we did. Vowing to never go back to Silver Dollar City again.
