I survived 14 roller coasters !!!

Just got back from Mystery Trip '09 ....
Cedar Point Amusement Park, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World on the shore of Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio. Cedar point boasts of 17 roller coasters of which I had the ... err .. pleasure of riding 14 of them. Nick and Lisa did 15 ... Sam and I sat out on one. The most intense was probably Top Thrill Dragster .. a ride that only lasts 17 seconds ... however you are launched from zero to 120 MPH and then shot up 420 feet to an arc where you then fall face down 420 feet. My first comment upon seeing it up close was: "It's a frikkin rocket sled!!"



Other coasters include:
Maverick <- Sam and I sat out.
Millennium Force
Raptor
Magnum XL-200
Disaster Transport
Mantis
Blue Streak
Mean Streak
Gemini
Iron Dragon
Corkscrew
Wicked Twister
WildCat
Mine Ride
