I’m not one for scary rides, but I went to 6 Flags and rode a couple of the rollercoasters. One was the giant wooden rollercoaster and another was entirely enclosed in a building and in the dark. I’m not a fan of either. The first was shaky and scary, and the second was scary and gave me a whiplash-like headache, and I saw stars when it came to an abrupt stop. I like the water rides and the smooth rides, not the hurking, jerking, monstrosities that are the signature of amusement parks. I hate heights; I don’t know how anyone can throw themselves off a platform into an abyss, trusting that something or someone will break their fall. No thanks. The games are fun, and I won a few small prizes. The cost to get into amusement parks is ridiculous, and children get their parents to pay it, but I think there are better things to spend money on. How about a good book? I know, I was kidding.
6 out of 10 stars.
