  10. 10. This summer I visited Six Flags Over Texas. Several of my friends went with me. We had lots of fun. There were lots of exciting rides. My favorite was the Titan rollercoaster. It had lots of twists and turns at 90 miles per hour. We rode it at least three times. I would like to visit Six Flags again.
