Summer time brings back fond memories for me of when my buddies and I would have a blast at the nearest amusement park. Back then, we didn't mind standing in those long, snaky lines on extremely hot, humid days to go on rides that would last a couple minutes. Part of the fun, after all, was the anticipation and talking about how hot the girl looked two aisles to your left. Or something like that. Heh heh.
When my wild gang of friends and I (back when we weren't afraid of anything) would go to the amusement park, we would always hit the scariest, most sick-inducing rides first, then cool off with the water rides later. Oh, the joys of being young and having a strong constitution! Back then, The Beast, at King's Island, was one of our favorites. It was the fastest (65 mph), longest wooden roller coaster at the time. It opened in April 1979.
Since then, roller coasters have improved with higher gravitational forces and even more complex designs.
I thought it would be fun to show you a video of what riding The Beast is like, first person point of view. The second clip is of a steel roller coaster named Bizarro. If I went on either one of these coasters, presently, I would likely:
A) Have a heart attack
B) Shit my fucking pants
C) Piss myself
D) And Vomit
All of which would happen, simultaneously.
Enjoy the rides!
