On Thursday Brett and I took a vacation day and headed to Cedar Point with our friends Vic and Jamie. I can’t remember the last time I was at the amusement park. Jamie and Brett wanted a day of coasters. I have had an aversion to roller coasters for years. I also haven’t went on many lately because I could not fit into the new engineered ride seats. I figured it would be a day of relaxation for me while they rode the rides.
It turned out to be completely different from what I had planned. Once I got there I started riding the coasters. The more I rode; the more I wanted to ride. I hit all the coasters with the group with the exception of the Top Thrill Dragster. I could not bring myself to be catapulted at 120 MPH across a track and up a 400 foot 90 degree tower and down. Check out the video of our ride on The Raptor. It was fun. My favorite from the day is Millennium Force with The Maverick a close 2nd.
It was an amazing day. I would have never did this pre-surgery. My confidence level is so changed. I can’t believe we went strong until well after the official closing hours.
