Journalling reads: While everyone else went off to go in the Saw Alive Maze, Me, Logan, Lukas and Ella wondered over to Octopus Garden, so they could ride on the kiddy rides. When we got there the man running the rides measured them both and said Lukas was too tall. They had both ridden on these rides earlier in the day but apparently the other staff member was not so strict. He tried to tell Lukas that made him tall enough to ride the big fast rides, but all of those terrify Lukas. Just when he was ready to burst into tears, the guy took pity on him. He said Lukas could ride, just this time, as long as he didn’t tell anyone. We were all incredibly greatful to the guy for doing that. It was such a sweet and simple act of kindness, but it stopped our whole day from being ruined. It also stopped me having to find some other way to occupy the two kids for about half an hour. They only ended up riding it once before Ella announced she needed the toilet and we had to go and search for a disabled one.
