Jan Michael is a great fan of roller coasters. The higher and faster and more spirals & loops the better, he says. I like the smaller ones just fine, but the big boys always scare me to death, at least at first. And since Krakken is certainly not small, and since it was the very first coaster we rode all week, I had to screw my courage to the sticking place and force myself to be brave. But in the end, all of the heart palpitations were worth it - we rode it twice :)
Here I am, hoping against hope that my seatbelt will do its job and that I will not go whizzing through space and be smashed to smithereens on the pavement somewhere.
This is our new hobby: Every time we ride a roller coaster, we will buy the picture they take as we're careening around at 100 miles an hour. My favorite things about this one are Jan's look of eager expectation for whatever's coming next, and that my hair is standing 3 feet off my head. Roller coaster pictures help keep a girl humble.
All finished and still alive! (I had my doubts, you know.)
Journey to Atlantis isn't really a roller coaster since there's just one drop at the very end, but we couldn't resist the picture.
