An Amusement Park Adventure

I went to Darien Lake yesterday with about 35 kids.  We all had a good time.  Everyone did their own thing, which was nice.  Some like the rollercoasters, others like the water rides.  Some didn't like to go on the rides at all.  I always liked rollercoasters but I am a little squemish about them the older I get.  My friend and I hung out together all day and went on a few rides.  It was alot of fun.  Toward the end, we decided to go on the "Viper", which is a rollercoaster.  We both were apprehensive about going on it, but we pushed our fears aside and got in line.  The ride came and we got in.  Once we were locked in, it was too late to get out now.  Oh, NO!  We both said "We can't stop now!"  The ride started bringing us up this very steep conveyer belt which made you feel like it would not grip and you might fall backwards.  We finally got to the top and oh, no, we were headed downward.  It wasn't so bad at first but the the turns and flips and drops came.  Wow!  What a ride.  It was so fast and I tried to keep my eyes open for the whole thing but I couldn't quiet do it.   The pressure from the wind was so strong that my headband was being pushed backwards off of my head.  I kept trying to push my head around against the seat to hold onto it so it wouldn't fly away and maybe hit someone.  I was glad that my headband worked it's way down to my neck and wrapped around it .  At times we were upside down, and sideways.  It was alot of fun.  At the end we saw our picture.  What a Riot!  We look so funny and terrified.  I had to buy it so we would have a memory of this experience.  I would definatlely do it again.

I am not a fan of rollercoasters. Don't like them at all. I went on one at Marine Land when I was little. Loved it. but I will never go on one again. That's great you went on one and had such fun.
