It's the middle of August and Summer is beginning to wind down. There is however, plenty of fun to be had before the end of the season and one of the many things that people enjoy is a trip to an amusement park. For the bold and brave, no trip to an amusement park is complete without taking a high-flying ride on a roller coaster. I have long been a fan of them, in fact, they were pretty much the only thing I would ride. The thrill of the unknown twists, turns and loops brings a heart-pounding level of excitement. Roller coasters, most people love them or leave them alone. :-) Today I wanted to share just a few images from the "Over the Top" collection. First we have this ride in the clouds.
And you thought the clouds were for computing. Imagine the thrill of dropping down these rails at speeds approaching 70 MPH.
Next we have a Race to the Bottom on an old fashioned wooden roller coaster. These are purported to have the best ride, although I have honestly never been able to tell the difference.
Below, this cool family seems to think this is just another ride in the park.
Of course Junior wants to be in the driver's seat. A real Family Affair.
Rounding out the fun is this "Hang Time" image.
This ride allows you to hang your feet in the wind and even dips along the course to let you literally get your feet wet from a few strategically placed spraying stations. That must be a blast on a really hot day.
Thanks so much for visiting!
