Lots to do/entering for this contest. I almost passed it by but I'm glad I didn't, pretty fun! Takes me back to being a teenager spending summers at our, (Astroworld), Theme park. To which had a roller coaster just like that actually called by the same name too. Interesting.

Love the "ride along" parts ;-)

GOOD LUCK ALL :-)
