"WILD THING" ~ What a Ride!

Yes!!! I "DID IT"... I rode the Wild Thing at Valley Fair in Shakopee,MN yesterday! Here I am walking to the ride.

I'm on the top of the ride..my friend took this picture :)

The rest of the photos are from google! These pictures give you a Much better view!

I "laughed" the entire ride...I laughed so much, tears were coming down my face..it was priceless!

Going UP...

Coming DOWN!!!!!!!!! This "drop" is 196 feet...Yikes...I kept my eyes open and it was a great view before the DROP DOWN!

Here I am..after the ride. The "photo" booth wasn't open..so no great picture of me "screaming/laughing"... I would go again!

Facts about the ride: Wild Thing was built in 1996. Height is 207 feet. Top speed is 74 MPH

The ride is 3 minutes. Seemed quicker!!

Another "thing" I can cross of my "DO" list !!!


deb :)

p.s. I hope this inspires you to "DO" something that you wouldn't normally try/DO!

You are sooo brave, Deb...oh my gosh...I could never do it!

Patti said...

Good for you for braving it!! Looks like such fun!! Of course, I haven't been on a roller coaster for over 30 years now, so my memory of them being fun goes along with youth. Perhaps I wouldn't enjoy them as much now, but, boy, back then, they were at the top of my list.

It looks like so much fun - something I have always wanted to do but am too afraid - I would be laughing also but I think the tears would be running down my leg instead of my face.

Deb said...

OH MY, you're a braver woman than I am! We have a similar coaster here called the "mind eraser" and you couldn't pay me to ride it! LOL

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Deb, you are a Much Braver woman than me!!! I am scared to death of heights.
Love the picture of you! Twyla

Jane said...

You go girl!!! I used to love roller coasters but I haven't been on one since my son was little. They are so much fun!! I'm glad you had a great time!

My Vintage Mending said...

I have to laugh. Last time I went on a roller coaster my head hurt for a week. You are a wonderful grandma to do this. I want to be just like you when I grow up! Ha..Ha..Renee

Theresa said...

Oh my goodness, if I kept my eyes open... my contacts would blow out:) Looks like fun! We are going to Six Flags this Saturday!

Have a blessed evening dear Deb, HUGS!

Joy said...

Wow, you are a brave woman, I have not been on a roller coaster in about 25yrs and don't plan to either..lol

Joyce's Journey said...

Nope. No way. No how. Could never do it. More power to you, Deb. I'm proud of you, but I think you're nuts! Said lovingly, of course!!

GardenofDaisies said...

Looks like you had fun!!! I rode several when I was young, but probably wouldn't now. I like the tame stuff , like the Ferris Wheel and Carousel and the rides that splash you with water. :-)

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Nope, there is no roller coasters on my bucket list!!! So glad you lived!


Passionate for White said...

Fun stuff!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I always loved roller coasters...but don't think I would do one now! Maybe I should think about it again! Looks like FUN! ♥

You Go Girl!!! Kudos!!! :-D

Shirl said...

Hi Deb, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. Love your post you are so brave, I do not like rides since I've gotten older. Your alot younger than me though. LOL
Love your past few posts, that scrapbook was so neat, reminds me alot of the one my Mom made for me when I got married. She used the same format.
Have a great week,

It looks fun, though...

Oh my....my husband and I rode a wood rollercoaster last year while on a trip and I swear we hurt for 2 weeks afterwards from all the jerking of our bodies.....we had fun, but never again!

Olivia said...

Awesome!!! I rode the ejection seat this summer! I thought I was going to die ;)

Marydon said...

Laughing, Deb. You are so cute! Love you in the pics. We just did the same thing yesterday with the kid-lings at the amusement park. Found every spot of arthritis in my body, but had a ball!

Would you be so kind to leave a comment on my BLOG ONLY, for the Miracle Makeover fund drive. Charlie, 8 yr. old, & his story are fabulous. Every comment brings us a $1 for the next person that will be sponsored.

You are braver than I am. Glad you enjoyed your wild ride.

Margaret Cloud said...
