Roller Coasters

In 2004 I went to 9 ROLLER COASTER destinations!

 

My personal roller coaster ratings is 5-star ***** is the best and * is awful. 

In 2004, I had fast thrills at 9 theme parks in one  year:

  Busch Gardens Tampa,   6 Flags over Georgia,   Disney Magic Kingdom,   Disney EpcotDisney MGM,

  Disney Animal Kingdom,   Universal Studios,   Universal Islands of Adventure, and Las Vegas

 

In October, 2007 I rode the 2nd and 6th highest and fastest roller coasters in the world.  They are at Cedar Point in Ohio.  This is from the Roller Coaster Database at  http://www.rcdb.com/.  It rocks with stats!

THE ULTIMATE THRILL RIDE

Rating: ******

12/2004

 

This Bull Ride was tons more fun than the ostrich ride!  My form was almost as good as the professional bull riders that I saw in Atlanta!

 

 

 

Christopher Reeves is no longer with us, but Ultimate Flight lives on at Six Flags over Georgia!


In October, 2007 I rode the 2nd and 6th highest and fastest roller coasters in the world.  They are at Cedar Point in Ohio.   

 

Millennium Force                        

Aggressive Thrill ride
Duration: 2 min., 0 sec.
Speed: 93 mph

It is the big star of the show. A true Giant among coasters.
So huge, it created a whole new category “the giga-coaster.
Welcome to Millennium Force, the 310 foot, 93 MPH record-breaking monster of a thrill ride.
The first hill features an elevator cable lift system to get you to the top faster,
then it is an 80-degree drop to start the coaster ride of your life!

Top Thrill Dragster

Aggressive Thrill ride
Duration: 0 min., 17 sec.


In the race for pure adrenaline thrills, there is one winner: Top Thrill Dragster.
Nothing else compares to this high-horsepower shot into the sky.
At the start you are launched forward, from zero to 120 MPH in less than 4 seconds.

Angle of lift hill is 90 degrees so you're going straight up,

few seconds later, you're 420 feet in the air.

then straight down - angle of twist on descent is 270 degrees,  then and back to the finish line.
The ride may be over in 17 seconds, but it'll stay with you forever.
