Yeah Alexx, I used to have big problems with roller coasters when I was a kid. My family would leave me behind and I would have to wait around as they stood in line and rode the big coasters. They would constantly try and get me going, but I was too freaked out. Then while they were waiting in a really long line for one, after a lot of contemplation, I decided to join them in line because I was tired of feeling afraid of it. It was one of the biggest baddest coasters at the time, one called The Viper
at Six Flags Magic Mountain. After we were done with the ride, I was so freaking exhilerated and thrilled that I became an immediate enthusiast! haha
Even though I grew to like big coasters, it took me a few years to get over my fear of doing a sudden drop coaster. It's the waiting before the drop that really kills me.
I got over it and came to like them too, but not as much as the big metallic ones - X2
being one of the last coolest ones I've ridden. The biggest challenge for me was riding the needle, Big Shot
, on the top of the Stratosphere in Vegas. HOLY CRAP MAN.
That thing is scary as hell for someone afraid of base heights. @_@ I get dizzy just thinking about it haha
