I think people enjoy theme park attractions that reflect their own individual personalities. Some, like me love roller coasters. I relate to the slow uphill climb,filled with a wild ride mixed with ups and downs, twists and curves that ultimately end up with a mellow ending. Others, like the predictability of a Ferris wheel or carousel that goes round and round. There are folks that stand back & watch and others that jump in with both feet. I am not one that walks around in anticipation of the bottom falling out so this 49 Before 50 Experience is out of the ordinary for me.
Six Flags,Magic Mountain just opened the world’s tallest free fall attraction called Lex Luther’s Drop Of Doom. This ultra intense ride climbs over 400 feet in the air and then drops to the ground at 85 mph. I thought I could handle it with no problem. After all, I have been skydiving and jumped from the Stratosphere in Las Vegas. I was really good with everything until I actually sat down and got strapped in. The car rose up, and up,and up and up. The worst part was sitting at the top knowing that the drop was going to come but knowing when. The fall was really crazy. Take a look!
