I love roller coasters. Wooden, steel, with loops, without, I love them all. But I'm not an adrenaline junkie. Not really. I've never jumped out of an airplane or dangled from a rubber band or anything else that adrenaline junkies do. But roller coasters? I could ride them all day long. With a break for lunch and dinner, of course.
I poked around on YouTube for a bit to find some front-seat views of coasters (And yes, I do sit in the very front when I ride them.), so if dropping down several hundred feet and whipping around corners with your hair trailing in the breeze isn't your idea of fun, you might not want to watch these.
This is one of my favorite coasters. The ride is fabulous.
And this one, because nothing compares to the rickety feel and the sound of a wooden coaster.
And this one. You are warned, the folks who made the video are a little vocal, and it cuts out before the ride is done, but it gives a great shot of the first hill, which is made of awesome.
I've never ridden this one, but I'd love to. In fact, I'd love to go to Cedar Point and spend several days riding all their coasters. What a dream vacation that would be.
One of my favorite all-time rides is the Zipper. But the last time I was on one, I almost knocked myself out. I think I need to wear a helmet the next time.
