Last (and scariest) roller coaster I've ever been on, the Cyclone!
I rode it once, just so I could say I did. I am a great big chicken about roller coasters!
Bonnie I was 17, working as summer help with a construction company. My boss stops the truck next to the Cyclone (we were driving through the neighborhood.) He said "do you like roller coasters?" I said they scare the hell out of me...I hate them. He said "so you want to ride the Cyclone?" I said okay. Like you, I can say I did it. Haven't been on one since!
OMG. See, when I did it it was my idea - TQ and I had gone to see a Cyclones game and I thought it would be a good way to round out the day. When my friend Waqar first mentioned making a trip to Coney Island while he was visiting, I first said I would meet him out there without really thinking twice, then it hit me that I had better clarify that I was not a scary-rides person. I was pretty sure he was just talking about going to take pictures but you never know who is going to turn out to be a coaster enthusiast! It did turn out that he just wanted to take pictures too, so it all worked out.
