    I love rollercoasters, and I live within a 100-mile radius from all the popular theme parks! Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is 18 miles from home, and I've ridden every flutin' coaster there: Gwazi, Scorpion, SheiKra, Kumba, and Montu! I also live an hour from the Walt Disney World...

    I hated them until I went on one

    that was in the dark and did everything a roller coaster could do. I didn't expect that, so I simply used logic and realized that I had nothing to fear because I had done it all.

    I Love Rollercoasters...

    But, woe is me. I don't know anyone else who does :( And riding a coaster all by yourself, is a very lonely experience..

    When summer comes I get season pass

    and go on rollercoasters so much that I get used to the dropping feeling in the stomach and don't even feel in no more! Next thing to try is skydiving this summer!

    I have loved riding each and every rollercoaster I've ever been on, but no one will ever go on them with me. I was lucky one year a guy and I went on every single ride twice and had such a blast. The thrills the turns the upsidedown "stomach is gonna pop out feeling,"...

    Amusement parks are a big factor in determining

    where we go on a family vacation. Considering Dollywood this year. How does the park compare to Silver Dollar City for anyone who has been to both places?

    Terrified of Heights

    I absolutely love roller-coasters despite my fear of heights. I believe it is that fear that causes them to be that much more intense. I can never get enough of them.

    Didn't Always Like Them

    I remember going on a fast upside down ride with my mom when I was younger, and being scared on the ride and when I got off and had a phobia of fast, roller coaster-ish rides for the longest time.  When I was in high school, some of my friends and I went to Six Flags, and I...

    My mom and my brother are wimps.  My dad and I are the big roller-coaster lovers.  My brother will ride some now because he has to be all "macho" so he can't wimp out anymore. When I was a kid, I'd get mad when I wasn't tall enough to ride them.  I'd...

    Roller coasters tickle my tummy.

    I kinda love that panic and thrill of being high and coming down really fast like there's no control. Adrenaline junkie in the making? Perhaps. But it scares the hell out of me. Lol

    Woodies Only

    I have been known to buy a ticket to an amusement park just to ride the wooden roller coasters. Then I get something to eat, ride the woodies again and go home. Don't like steels, won't go upside down but give the the teeth shaking ride of a woodie and I am in heaven.
