Thank you to Two Writing Teachers
for hosting the Slice of Life
Growing up in Ohio, meant summer trips to Cedar Point (well known for coasters). During a get together with my brothers tonight, we all reminded about our favorite coasters at “the roller coast”.
Steve remembered riding Gemini with my cousin John. “Let’s rude in the front cars red vs, blue !” He shared how they high-fived and cheered for their favorite colors. We all agreed Gemini ruled when it first came out at CP.
I agreed and shared a memory about riding Gemini 16 times in a row. Easy to do when the lines diminish. The Gemini’s wooden ness and competing colors made it so fun to ride with groups of friends.
Mike shared how he loved the Iron Dragon. A coaster unique to its time too as it allowed for dangling feet and swing as you round curves and drop on hills.
We all shared how as we’ve aged, our bodies are less tolerant to hills, dips, and curves.
My hubby and Mike’s girl friend talked of heights fear...the older we get the less we can take...still loving those memories and wishing to do experience it like we did when we were teens. Missing the roller coast of days gone by.
