  1. Well... I ended up not riding the Banshee or Diamondback. I was getting up the courage all day, however after riding Mystic Timbers. I was.in too much pain to try something else new to me. I am 55 and The Beast and Vortex are just ducky for me. I am going to try to get in better shape to have some muscle strength and resilience. I have Fibromyalgia, so I know it's not wise for me to ride rollercoasters. But darned if I'm giving up yet! We had SO much fun!!! Thete was cloud cover that kept the heat down, a nice breeze and just a sprinkle or two, no real rain at all. With the weather conditions I have to say it was the nicest weather day we ever had there. I went on the Drop Zone 2 or 3 times. TOTAL RUSH!!!! This one never fails to thrill! My hubby stands in line with me which is so sweet. He has a deathly fear of heights. And as usual La Rosa's pizza and breadsticks were fantastic. We were lucky because where my hubby works, they have a free KI day every June. Plus wristbands for limitless pop or water, paid parking, paid entrance fee and a small voucher to help with food costs. We were shocked when we were at La Rosa's - we had a $10 voucher, but the meal still cost over $17, with the voucher. Normally the cashier said it would be $27 and change without the voucher. A few times in the past we have gone back to the car to eat food we brought. But sometimes ya just gotta have La Rosa's pizza! Oh and their breadsticks are to die for! For some reason my hubby and I always called it Momma Rosa's. Does anyone know if that's what it was once called? I mean my hubby and I still refer to the small coaster that was originally named ,"the Scooby Doo". Any old farts on here like us that remember the original names? People at the park (especially kids) were probably wondering what the heck we were talking about! LOL!!! Anyway, sorry for the long post, but we felt like kids (well almost) last Saturday!
  2. Thanks so much for all your help! I'm not guaranteeing I will ride the DB, but I will sure let you know if I do!
  3. I am new to the T bar and "clamshell" restraints. I would like to ride the Diamondback but looks so scary with nothing to hold onto. Does everybody here feel safe with them? I tend to feel safer in the ones with a shoulder harness like The Vortex and Drop Tower. I love The Vortex (I'm only 5ft1in) so I get banged around a lot, but I learned (especially through the corkscrew) to keep my head and neck firmly to one side, which usually prevents the headaches.
