A dream came true Wednesday for a little girl who survived major heart surgery earlier this year.

Five-year-old Lulu Scott of Dixon held on as she hitched a ride from one of the dolphins at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo.

Lulu had surgery back in January at Children's Hospital in Oakland to close 13 small holes in her heart.

Lulu's family often drove past Six Flags on their way to her doctor's appointments and she asked if she could visit the theme park when she was fully recovered.
