I thought 6 Flags was American, Guess I was wrong :confused:

We don't have those in Canada as far as I know.

We have a Paramount Park, Canadas Wonderland - the Rollercoasters are fun, but rather Mickey Mouse compared to the biggest, fastest, and best in the world.

Frankly I don't really like Rollercoasters, they bored me. they are fun for a bit, but I dont get the great adreniline rush that some people do. I just don't have any thing to fear on them, so why would I?

I don't mind the rides that take you up dozens of stories and drop you - those are pretty good for me cause I hate heights and its like hanging off the side of a building.

Ah, I love rollercoasters! We're going to Six Flags Belgium next month or so, so I'll get my portion soon enough!
I've also been to Asterix Park, but I thought the wooden rollercoaster was more fun than the one with all those loopings. Also Space Mountain in Disneyland Paris is awesome!
:D

*lol* That would have been awful if you'd lost them!

I'm always paranoid that my contact lenses will come out while I'm on a coaster, which is completely ridiculous!:D

I also had that "paranoia" WW. lol, I would go on coasters with my glasses but I was scared to go on the coaster because I though the wind would knock them right out. Of course I was wrong, and now, I dont even think about those things while going on a coaster
