Thumbs up Not about boating, but all about speed!!!!

Check this out. This is the World's tallest, 430 ft and fastest, 121 MPH Roller Coaster. A series of magnets propells you up to 121 MPH and you, get this, coast up and over the 430 foot top.

If you are ever near Sandusky, OH, make sure you stop and ride it.

Oh yeah, you accelerate to 121 MPH in 6 seconds. The whole ride takes under 20 seconds!!!!

Seen that on the Discovery Channel Thrill Rides. The camera view from the front seat was insane!!!. They had a couple of other crazy ride's on that program. They are currently working on the design for a see saw type ride for the top of a hotel in Vegas. The rider sit in a cart that goes back and forth as the end go up and down. The stop at one end is out over the side of the bldg!! Wild stuff!

You know those roller coaster rides are cool on Discovery HD. However I don't see why they keep turning the camera around to show the people riding. I would like to see one full lap from the front.

Roller coasters are the deal! Those are always the first stops when visiting ANY amusement park. Just one more stop on the speed junkie road trip!
