I Want To Take A Risk

    Did It!

    I have always had this fear of falling from a high height. So... I took a risk when I went to the Great Escape in Lake George, NY and rode the ride called The Sasquatch! It went up 192ft and dropped in 3 seconds!!!! I am now proud to say that fear is decimated!
