I LOVE THEM!!!!
One would think I didn't...I am a screamer! I screamed so much on Saturday and Sunday that by Monday my giggle was at a pitch only dogs could hear!!!
I could only get out Oooo Hooo!!!
It is better to day!
My first roller coaster ride was when I was 6...I think....First grade....Must have been 6. The coaster I don't really remember, just my aunt's comment afterwards..."You are as white as a sheet!"
My most scariest ride was the Zingo...I was 9 or 10.....my mother's weekend....she and her lesbian lover took all of us to Bell's in Tulsa. Bell's has now been kicked off the fairgrounds and Zingo is currently in the process of being torn down.....Makes me think of that song...Pave Paradise and put in a parkin' lot....sad really.......but anyway...
My little brother was 5ish and I was put in charge. We were going to ride that thing!
Zingo is a wooden roller coaster and nothing really special about it. It is just one most kids in the Tulsa area know very well.
So anyway...we are on it and take off and it wasn't too long before my baby brother started to slide down under the bar! And one quick turn, he was tossed towards the opening! In my mind I could see him thrown out and hurled to the ground and his death!
Not on MY WATCH!!!
I grabbed him and held him with one arm and held on the bar with the other....and we rode it out!! You talk about white as a sheet! We both were!!!
I have stood there lookin' at Zingo many times over the years not once wanting to get back on it.....just one of those bad things, I don't want to repeat!!!
I have ridden many coasters. I love them all. The ones that are suspended and do the corkscrews and the loop da loops....I scream the whole way!!!
Our weekend trip was no different!
Silver Dollar City has 4 or 5....Thunderation is the best to start kids on, it is mild compared to the others in the park. You can ride it forward or backward....and of course backwards make you the dizziest!!
The Wildfire is best for loop da loops...it's fast!! And that I think is the problem with most rides....they are too short after standing in line for 2 hours! We did that in Dallas to ride the Batman....awesome ride....maybe 60secs????
Have you ever been in Dallas in July in tin building without A/C?????? That alone is apt to make a person sick!!!
The Power Keg at SDC is real cool....you are propelled 0 to 60 in 2.3 seconds straight up and dropped down a steep hill.....and there are twists and turns.....Just an awesome coaster!! MrsHappyFamily and HappySon rode it with me and Roy.....The boy may never get back on another coaster!!! He was doin' all he could to keep from cryin' when we got off.....Roy said he was probably shook up becuz of that WOMAN screamin' her ass off behind him......I CAN'T HELP IT!!!!
Some times when you go the park during the slow season, you can ride them over and over again....Once Roy and I were on the Wildfire and I screamed the whole way!!! I have tried to suppress it but I just can't do it....it just comes out!!
When we got back to the barn to get out, the man asked if we wanted to go again.....And the lady and her 7 year old daughter that was sittin' next to me were discussin' it......Mom said,"Do want to do it again?"
And the little girl thumbs at me, "NOT if she is goin'!"
I was laughin' so hard at that I had to get off.....Far be it for me to ruin a little girl's fun!!!
So Share! What was your roller coaster like???
