The Terrorizing Ride of My First Roller Coaster

To start off, I was standing in line, this feeling of terror rushing through my body, waiting to get to the top of the stairs for Thunder Mountain at Disney. This was my first roller coaster ever. I was freaking out. The line was so long and I didn’t know what to do. Then I realized, maybe the feeling of terror wasn’t a bad thing because I don’t think it would be normal to not be scared on my first roller coaster. To begin, we were in line, and I could not get over the fact that I was super scared. The idea came to my mind that I wanted to ask my Dad if I had to go on it, but I knew he would object because we were almost to the front of the line.

I was shaking so much, I could barely even walk. I had that feeling I thought I was going to pass out, but luckily I didn’t. I was leaning against the railing that was cold because it was dark out, and could barely even stand. I saw all of my family standing around smiling. They looked so happy, while I was still in shock from everything. They were all saying how much fun it was, and they loved it, and that they wanted to go on it again. I told my Dad that I couldn’t go on it again. They finally decided that it wasn’t a good idea to go on it once more because the line was still super long. It was also really late and we wanted to be able to do more before we had to leave. In addition, this moment on the roller coaster made me realize that it’s okay to be scared because it was my first ride ever, and I am pretty sure that it’s normal to react this way. It is important to try and experience new things even if you are freaking out about it. I never would have gone on it if I wasn’t told that I have no choice, but at the same time, I am glad that I got made to go on

    Letter of Recommendation—Roller Coaster Roller Coaster was my biggest nightmare when I was young. Unlike other kids, I begged for not going to those amusement parks and my parents were surprised. I was afraid of sitting in an accelerating car at that time, so roller coaster wasn’t even an acceptable concept for me. I couldn’t imagine myself getting tortured by that flying machine, and I couldn’t understand why so many people waited in a queue measured in hours for it. My mother used to incite me to “be like a normal kid” by suggesting how enjoyable and somehow relaxing the experience is up there.…
