Rollercoaster Madness! Dramatic rollercoaster story! Up until the age of 11, I was horrified from the sight of a rollercoaster. When I looked at some of the scariest rides on YouTube I actually felt sick! My first ever rollercoater ride was on the 7th April 2010. It was a frightening day and as me and my friends family headed of to Thorpe Park I was a nervous wreck! The first ride my friend decided we would go on was colossus a 98ft tall, 30m long ride which is also the worlds first 10 inversion rollercoaster. As I plucked up the courage to get on this ride, I knew I could face nasty consequences…. Unsure of what I was about to face I closed my eyes until the ride came to a screeching stop. And lets just say, I wasn’t the happiest person when the ride ended…….. Why I am so Passionate about rollercoaster! • Rollercoasters mean a lot to me A rollercoaster design! because I believe it is the best way to get an exciting thrill from doing an activity that is highly enjoyable! Of course you can get thrills from bungee jumping but nothing compares to the anticipation of riding a rollercoaster.

The slides were built to about 70 or 80 feet consisted of 50 degree drops and were supported by wooden poles. Types of coasters • Today there are two types of coasters: • Steel roller coasters • Wooden roller coasters Steel roller coasters are known for their smooth ride and often awkward shapes that make the ride more thrilling!
