Let's see here.  Prone position, dropped from 335 feet at 60 mph, with vomit following close behind.  Great ride until you stop.  ;D

Life is what happens, when you are busy making other plans.

Though you may be only one person in the entire world, to one person, you may be the entire world.

I wish to become half the man, that my dog thinks I am.

Remember me with simple acts of kindness and I will live forever.

I love those drop rides.  However, we were surprised at a similar ride at Universal Islands Of Adventure.  You thought you would be dropped, but it shot you upward.

Our Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom had one of those-- smaller of course.  A cable got tied around a teen girl's legs before it dropped, and both her legs were severed.  They took the ride out here.  I am sure they designed all similar rides, so that cannot happen again.  I know King's Island in Cincy has one, but they made alterations.

Even imagining this gives me the shakes.  I am a giant wuss in that rollercoasters scare the living daylights out of me.  I managed to man up and go with a group of friends to Six Flags in Atlanta and I did whatever the very first ride I saw was.  I was so sore for the rest of the day because I had completely tensed up every muscle in my body for the entire 2 minute ride.
