I did it!

Yesterday lordaerith and I drove down to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and met up with cjovalle, qyandri, and gruff there. We went on a bunch of their coasters, the cute little Scooby-Doo Haunted ride, where you get to try to blast things with "light", and stuff. When walking around, I looked at their Superman Krypton coaster and decided that even though it had twists and turns like the Batman - The Dark Knight coster at Six Flags, I wanted to try it. Now, for those of you who don't remember, last time I went on the Batman ride, I had a really bad experience. However, this Superman coster looked much more spread out, so I wanted to see if I could handle it. Aerith, Qyandri, Gruff and I got in line and I was really scared, but aerith asked me if I'd rather do this or see a cockroach. Well, irrational fear of cockroaches or fear of falling to my death...cockroaches are worse. So, we got on the coaster, and Aerith pointed out just how well the wheels grip the track, which helped. And the ride was actually a lot of fun. It's partially built into a cliff, so one of the turns is high off the ground, but low into the cliff. I had a death grip on the harness, but I was only really really scared once. I think that because the Superman Krypton coaster is longer than the Batman one, the twists aren't so close together so I had time to recover before getting flipped upside down again. I was smiling when the ride was over. I would totally do it again. And maybe one day, I'll even be able to enjoy the Batman one. :) I rule!
