The Griffon Roller Coaster

As part of our Christmas, my parents took us to Bucsh Gardens in Virginia. While we were there we rode the most amazing rollercoaster ever. When we got to the park we saw it was running and we watched the entire freaky thing from the ground. I honestly thought the people that were on the thing were going to die when it did the first "free fall" type drop. All of us turned to each other and said, "We've got to go on that ride!!" So we waited in line for the front row, biting our nails the entire time. On the Griffon you aren't allowed to have any loose objects, hats, shoes that aren't practically glued to your feet, etc. I rode with no shoes. Anyway, the ride was AWESOME. It was the biggest rush I have ever had in my life. I couldn't hardly even scream because I was so stunned at what my body was going through. It was incredible. When we reached the end of the ride, Darrell, Melodie, Bryant, Eric and I all rejoiced that we were alive and ran to get right back in line.
This video shows what the coaster looks like:

Even this video doesn't do it justice if you ask me!
Anyway, the day was a blast...thank you mom and dad for taking us to Busch Gardens!
