In Search Of The Fastest Roller Coaster In The World


The best thing about going to amusement parks is getting on all those rides. As you get older the allure of the merry go round fades and you start to want to go the grown up rides, the ones you have to be a certain height or age for. Americans are crazy about Roller coasters. Riding one is almost like a rite of passage, especially if you are a kid, trying to conquer some fear. There are coasters that are rather scary for being so fast they make you feel like your face will turn inside out, and then there are those that spin and hang you upside down before letting you plummet at speeds exceeding 100 mph. Those are the ones that make grown men cry. Getting on the fastest roller coaster in the world means you have to skip the cotton candy and the ice cream so you can enjoy the ride without hurling.
