Entertaining

Sometimes life happens when you're making plans to enjoy it. So Avocados From Mexico came up with some ways to make the most of Cinco de Mayo, no matter where Cinco takes you.

Stuck on a Roller Coaster? Here’s How to Get Your Cinco Back on Track

It’s official: Your Cinco de Mayo has gone off the rails.

You’re on your way to Maria’s Cinco de Mayo party when you pass the amusement park. With its mountainous peaks and devastating drops, you can’t resist admiring the Falcon Fall Frenzy coaster, and you quickly find you can’t just stand by. Armed with your party snack of choice — Guac a la Veracruzana With Plantain Chips — you work your way through the line and board the ride.

The wind flies through your hair as you wave your hands above your head and scream. But just as your cart climbs to the highest peak, the wheels skid to a stop. The adrenaline subsides. You’re stuck. You become self-conscious about your windswept hair.

After an hour, your stomach is rumbling, and you just can’t wait any longer to bust out your guacamole. It’s time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, even though you’re stuck on a roller coaster. Here are some tips for making the most of it:

  • First things first: Crowdsource some dippers. Break out the chips and see who has a bag of carrot sticks, cucumber slices, or fruit in their fanny pack. (Find out more about guac dippers with our video on how to eat avocados.)
  • To protect your guac from flying foes, you’ll need a scarecrow. Grab a jacket from the guy behind you, borrow that kid’s balloon, and put it in the hood. Draw an angry face on the balloon. You want to enjoy this guac, not fight a flock of birds for it.
  • Make sure you save a bit for the firefighters who arrive to rescue you. They deserve to experience the goodness of the guac too.
  • Make a mental note to check the scream cam after your rescue. Hopefully, you’ll find some useful material for the “faces of people overwhelmed by the delicious flavor of Avocados From Mexico” coffee-table book you’ve got in the works.

“I can’t believe they make you guys work on Cinco de Mayo!” you say when the firefighters finally arrive. One of them turns to you and says, “It’s not Cinco. At least not yet!” then takes a generous scoop of your guacamole. “Now that’s Cinco!”
