Percipia Goes To Six Flags

Every summer, our office goes on a summer outing. This year’s event? A trip to Six Flags!

It was a beautiful day to ride roller coasters.

While some of our employees are roller coaster vets, there were a few of us who were pretty new to them too! (Myself included.)

It didn’t take long after our first stop (The Raging Bull) for me to get a hang of it though.

I think everyone’s favorite ride had to have been the Superman. Since we purchased fast passes (which means NO LINES) we were able to go as many times as we wanted! I went four times myself!

Suffice to say, it was a great time!

Thanks again to our awesome CEO Mike!
