I Don't Just Like - I Love Them!

I was going to join the bigger group - but LIKE is not strong enough - I LOVE roller coasters.

We live quite close to Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and I finally got the courage to ride their newest coaster - The Griffon - 90 degree drops - and they hang you at the top of the first hill for a bit.  The cars are 3 rows - 10 people across - no cars really either - a chair - no protective tube to sit in - ha ha!

The first time - I succumbed to the peer pressure of my brother and his wife - I closed my eyes literally the entire ride - never opened them.  I really loved it - scary - yes - but too much of a thrill to skip - so rode again that day - and opened my eyes a bit - then rode again on another visit and just watched everything - next goal - the front row with hands in the air instead of white knuckling the shoulder harness.

We also live near Paramount's King's Dominion - and they have so many more roller coasters - the stand up - Shock Wave, an inside one, one that goes underwater, just a ton - so that is fun - especially when we leave the children at home with a sitter and just do the coasters over and over again!

Oh, I can't wait for the parks to open!  Maybe this year my daughters will be a little braver and ride a small coaster with me!
