    There is only one rollar coaster I have ever liked and that is the dragon one they have at the county fair for kids.  I tried going on a couple at Great America, just to say I've been on a rollar coaster, and I vowed to never go on another rollar coaster ever again.  I...

    The Higher, the Worse

    I'm not afraid of all roller coasters, but I'm tense if I don't know it and have to discover, because I do not want to have my head down. I went to another kind of attraction, that wasn't a roller coaster, but turning with the head down, I felt sick and was scared, with someone...

    Roller Coasters

    A very long time ago, I tried the roller coaster and also the monster (bigger), it was very very very scary and I did it.  If I would go back to an amusement park, I wouldn't be able doing it anymore, I am scared of heights.
