They are nice to look at. But I think my tummy would not take it.

That looks brilliant!!!

Gemini looks very much like a ride that I went on at PortAventura (a theme park in Spain ,where you may have seen I went on holiday to last week)
called stampida - there was even the racing each other thing!

I'm sorry Aleeve, when I said "I haven't been there in quite a while" I meant Cedar Point.
I've never been to the one you went to. Again, sorry about the confusion.

Could I just mention here, that the best rollercoaster ride you can possibly hope for is.....A small helicopter, piloted by an English Army pilot. Flying at 150mph, Dodging trees, hedges, cows, telegraph poles etc etc. (Yes, 2ft off the deck). The adrenaline really gets pumping. :)

If only you had of known me back then. I got flights like that for several of my friends (strictly off the record (and pilots log) of course)

Nice :)
I have a few friends in the marines, a couple in the Navy and one in the Army I think
and some who have since retired!
Still, never had an opportunity like yours!
