I don't ride the rides very much anymore, but this roller coaster is my all time favorite. It's called the Giant Dipper. This wooden roller coaster opened here in 1924 and is still going strong. I rode it for the first time in the summer of 1969.

The last car is my favorite one to get. The first hill down takes your breath away. My technique for riding this ride is I plant my feet firmly on the floor board, raise my arms and enjoy the ride. Oh yeah... I do scream all the way down that first hill. ") It's wicked fun!!
