Riding the Roller Coaster

Riding the Roller Coaster

I have always had a strange love for roller coasters.  The way they toss and turn your stomach and force childish screams from your lungs is incredible.  The roller coaster has evolved over the years as well.  They are now more twisted, faster, higher, and, at the same time, somehow smoother and more comfortable.  I decided to pull out my camera and film my latest ride on a roller coaster in Six Flags Great America near Chicago, much to the chagrin of the ride operator who yelled at me “no cameras” as we slid past her look out stand.

Without any further a do, here is the video:

  1. Roller Coasters scare me, but for some reason I always end up riding them!
    Maybe after my accident I won’t be able anymore though:(
    The “worst” one was the Cyclone in Coney Island, NY… scary!!!
    Have you ever been there?
    p.s. I enjoyed the video!
