SCREAMING AND HOTDOGS

75-Cyclone-NK-066

I don’t like horror movies, except the old ones which are more funny than scary. I thought Jurassic Park and Jaws were scary enough. Life is plenty full of thrills and chills without seeking out more.

Then, there are roller coasters. Especially our hometown favorite — the Cyclone at Coney Island.

  1. I remember you posting this picture before and I love it still!

    I have a pic of me, my ex and M at Kings Dominion when M was about 4. He was already over the kiddie rides, so he is in the front seat of the little “coaster” and has his arms up the entire time. We didn’t go for a few years after that because we wanted to wait for him to be tall enough for the “real” rides

  2. I hate roller coasters. Even merry-go-rounds I’m not fond of. But I’d love to shoot one at night with the lights flashing. Would make a great photo!

  5. No way. I would probably be the one in the newspaper the next day “Lady falls out of helter skelter” or something like that, or perhaps my first heart attack. I get nervous enough getting on the escalator and getting off at the local supermarket.

    • Most people don’t fall out. It’s usually the idiots who decide they should stand up, then fall out. In more than 80 years, no person sitting down has fallen out. As for heart failure, I’m not sure they have ever released the stats, but I’ll bet there have been a few. I’ve been riding this big bad boy since I was a little kid, so it’s not so much scary, as really hard on my bones and back. The last time we went — about 4 years ago — Garry said he didn’t think he could do it again. His bones were objecting loudly. Mine too … but I might do it once, just for the memories and a last scream.

      • “The Last Scream”. I like that as a title for a horror flick. BTW: I surfed our cable system (a horror in itself) and no where do I see Karloff, Lugosi and the classic horror films of yore scheduled for Halloween viewing. Say it ain’t so.

  6. I love roller coasters, although I won’t go on any that go upside-down.
