Happy NRCD to all the folks on URC! Hope you get to ride today. If not, have faith..it'll come soon. And since today also marks the 35th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, I hope your rides today don't leave you feeling "All Shook Up." Well, nobody's riding Son Of Beast, so that should help...

Me? I'm working. A 2007 Ion (made by Saturn, not B&M or Intamin) is all I'll be riding :(

But I do get to ride my first Mountain Coaster next Saturday if plans go through.

Today's also National Tell A Joke Day, but this post is not one of those...

I rode 5 coasters in 2 parks today and didn't even realize it was a national holiday. :)

I spent the day (well, morning anyway) riding the flowrider at King's Island. While it's not a coaster, at least I was on a ride. I did not tell any jokes though.

Seabreeze and Martin's Fantasy Island, both of which were pretty crowded. TR's and videos are forthcoming. :)

Look forward to them as always Ray. Your stuff is very enjoyable. I can't wait to see your pix/video of the Seabreeze Bobs. I've been there, but I haven't been to Martins.
