Here Goes Nothing

I know this has nothing to do with fashion or art, or anything of that premise. But I just have to share this.

Yesterday, I went to Six Flags Great Adventure along with my family and my brother's friends to celebrate his 13th birthday. As I am a thrill junkie, I was quite excited to know that the Six Flags in New Jersey was home to the fastest, tallest roller coaster in the world. The Kingda Ka. Us kids had come up with the perfect plan to how we would execute the riding of this coaster. We decided we would ride it as a finale. If you have been to an amusement park, you know that as you walk around there is always this one coaster that you can see everywhere you go. The Kindga Ka was that coaster.



It seemed like it touched the clouds. From 0 to 128 mph in only 3.5 seconds, pulling 1.67 G's. 456 feet of pure exhilaration. Before I knew it, I was being strapped into the seat, bouncing up and down with pure terror. This, might I add, was a completely new sensation for me because not many things make me scared. Not to sound like I'm Hercules or anything. Woosh! My face was like in one of those movies where the people's cheeks fly back exposing their gums. The pressure so intense, it forced my eyes shut. Going up the side of the huge hill felt like I was being shot into space with a super cannon. Once the cart got to the crest, I peeked my eyes open and I could see the whole world (a tad exaggerated). Then, too soon after, I was plunging down the side, which was crazier than a celebrity baby name. I would post the candid picture of me flying up the side, but I am not that brave.

Now I can say I have ridden the fastest, tallest roller coaster in the world. If there is ever a new one, just tell me how to get there.

HOLY CRAP. That coaster does look like it reaches the clouds! Just look at it compared to the others! Haha I love this, "My face was like in one of those movies where the people's cheeks fly back exposing their gums."

Oh wow, I'm so excited for the royal show - an annual event where I live... So many roller coasters and rides, but nothing as exciting as that!!

Oh. My. Gosh.

I want to ride it, and I want to ride it NOW! haha Actually New Jersey isn't too far away... hmm... maybe I need to visit the NJ six flags now! But really, that is so cool you have now ridden the fastest and tallest roller coaster in the world!

I love roller coasters... my favorite part is when you go STRAIGHT down... everytime I could swear we're going to just crash through the earth, even though I know we won't. I like it when I'm a bit scared, if it's not scary and thrilling, where's the fun?! :P

i have the worst fear of roller coasters. *shudder*

thank you so much for stopping by my site and leaving me a comment. to answer your question...i actually don't do much to it. i wash w/either suave or v05 shampoo & conditioner because they have no proteins or silicones in their products which wreak havoc on my hair. after i towel dry, i just run some MOP-C curl cream and either air dry or blow dry w/a diffuser for a few minutes if i'm in a hurry. that's about it. :)
