Roller-coasters

I got into a roller-coaster for the first time in my life today. I managed to ride with “Roar“, which is of “moderate” thrill. Still, quite a few people were screaming, but I kept my cool. What’s scary about this particular roller-coaster is not its sharp turns and speed, but the fact that it’s built of wood. The modern metal-based roller-coasters don’t “shake” you much, while the old-style, wooden ones, they give you the impression that they are going to fall apart at any moment. Video of the Roar coaster here.

Possibly, yes. We got season passes for the park.

Oooh! I haven’t been on a roller coaster since I was a teenager. Are you going to get on one again? ;-)
