This weekend, I took my first ride on a large roller coaster. I'm in love with them.


It was soo great!

I rode all the coasters at Carowinds in Charlotte, but my favorite was probably the Top Gun:







It was one of the funnest things I've ever done in my enitre life! The site said it was the fastest one there, about 62mph. I think I'm a roller coaster addict! Anyone else love roller coasters? Are there any other place near/around VA with good coasters?

There's a place near Cincinnati, Ohio called Kings island and it has some of the best roller coasters out there. It USED to have the only wooden roller coaster in the world that had a loop but something went wrong one day and people got hurt but that's a long story.

Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

I have a good roller coaster story:
We were at Six Flags America in MD and me n my friend were riding the Joker's Jinx like it wasnt gonna be there tomorrow. We rode it 5 times in a row, then one of my other friends who was in the park with us told us, hey lets get on superman. so we start walking to the Superman, then the Joker's Jinx shoots off again. Well, the train that was gonna be us GOT STUCK. I was laughing so hard, then sum chick that worked there was like thats not funny then i was like, its hilarious!!

Pfh, that's not a roller-coaster...

THIS is a rollercoaster:




Kingda Ka, the tallest, fastest, rollercoaster on the planet. Full article about it can be found here. 456 feet high, and the ride train doesn't always reach the top...

Never been one for big roller coasters. However, I'm going to Alton Towers tomorrow, and will be going on all the big rides.

Should be... Interesting.

Roller Coaster Tycoon. Inverted Roller Coaster I love that game, I've soon finished it all up

Yeah, I love rollercoasters. The best park in VA for rollercoasters that I have been to would be Kings Dominion. Volcano, Anaconda, and the Hypersonic XLC are all fun as ****!

I've seen videos of it. I almost puke just by looking...

I'd rather die than ride that.

This will probably be the greatest roller coaster ever:

It's the, now finally finished, although not in this pic, LED ZEPPELIN: THE RIDE, which is gonna be a part of the Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach. opening next year. Supposedly,the ride itself will be in sync with "Whole Lotta Love" during the ride. I'm totally looking forward to it.
