I started going to big amusement parks when I was just a little kid. I was too small to go on any of the big roller coasters. I would watch my older brother and his friends ride them and try to imagine what it was like. He always told me that “It’s so scary you would probably die 30 seconds into it.” A part of me believed him. I actually waited a few years past when I was big enough to ride them to try my first one. I loved it and instantly outgrew all the “kiddie” rides and only rode the big coasters from that point on.
