Cray Cray!

Okay, I did it. Took the plunge on the country’s biggest, fastest, tallest roller coaster (see post below). Television colleague Liem Vu was with me. We sat in the front car. Two thrilled contest winners and Liem and I , who both looked like we were trying to ass-walk our way out of the seats.

Nuts, folks! It was nuts. That first drop of 306′ is an absolute free fall at an 80 degree angle and there seems to be no end to it.

You just plunge and plunge and plunge. Every trace of spittle was ripped from my gaping maw. (sorry to whomever was seated behind me..although at a speed of ย 148kmh the saliva could have been vaporized) Similarly, the tears that came to my eyes in the cold and the wind were torn aside like windshield droplets under a car wash blower

I must have looked like an Edvard Munch painting.

So strike that one off the list..even though it was never there in the first place. The Leviathan will undoubtedly have them lining up for hours this summer. I won’t be there. Been there. Done that. Cray cray!

      Looks like you crossed one off the bucket list. Looks scary, but definitely keeps you young. You know you loved it!
