Narrative Essay On My First Ride

Improved Essays
When I first rode this it was the most terrifying thing ever. What was “this?” it’s Fahrenheit at Hershey Park. I first rode the ride in the summer of 2015. When I was ten about to go on to eleven. I rode with my mother, cousin, and friend. For privacy reasons we’ll call her Jenny. I showed courage when I first rode the ride, it might not be so much unlike other stories, like if someone saves someone from a burning house. I considered going back many times but I kept going, and I’m glad I did. I firstly, showed courage by going in the line in the first place, I was just barely tall enough to ride at the time so it was exciting, but mainly eerie. ‘Why did I choose to go on that ride if I was so scared?’ you ask. We had season passes that …show more content…
I was sitting next to my mother when we got on the ride. We started to move and the first thing there was the huge straight up-down hill. Gradually, we started moving up the hill, you’re stuck there for about 8 seconds till you start moving over the top turn. You’re staring right at the sun so you’re blinded and unknowing when the drop will start. I was ready to get off the ride till we started looking downward, in like most roller coasters you’re held there looking down for about 2-3 seconds, this was the most anxious part. We started to drop and I was afraid I was going to fall out, but within 5 seconds the drop it’s over, the drop part at least. We were going in all different directions, the coaster was about 30 seconds long, which most was about the hill. I finally got off alive. In conclusion, I showed courage by riding a roller coaster I never wanted to ride at all. With the huge drops, going straight up and down, and all the twists and turn, I was anxious to get on. I ended up finally pushing myself, with some help of others, to survive the coaster. I never want to go back on Fahrenheit and probably never will. It turns my stomach just to think about it. So, that’s the end of my story of

    As they dragged me up the steps to the ride, I saw the rollercoaster fly past us with people screaming and yelling. They were having the fun I wish I could have. I quickly looked down, and my body unable to be controlled by my brain, tried to turn around and walk back down, but my friends took my arm and dragged me towards the ride. I needed to get over my fear, but I couldn’t stop imagining the rollercoaster breaking down mid-ride, leaving me stuck there for hours. The more I thought about my fear, the more I got distracted about getting on.…

    As soon as we got o and the coaster started taking us up, and up my dad decides he’s going to record! And he does, I just feel so nervous as we went up the tallest ride there. Finally we got to the top, and it was as if the roller coaster was dangling us off of a 40 foot high building, till it had enough. We went down the steep drop, and oh did I get the feeling I wanted to, my stomach was so tight it had dropped, and my heart stopped beating for a good few minutes on this ride. It was the best ride I have ever rode, and after that I knew nothing could beat that…

    I concluded that it may not be that bad to go on Atlantis, but then I realized that there was a big drop in the end that sends the coaster plummeting into the shallow water. As the coasters fell under me I was shocked to see that they were still on the tracks. Then I thought about what Bhav said, “After all everyone who has done the ride so far has survived.” So, I made my second conclusion just as Bhav and I were two people away from getting in a blue, wooden coaster with black leather…

    We waited for about 30 seconds for the workers to make sure everybody was strapped in safely. When the carts then started down this tiny slope to a straight away over the water. I was a mix of scared and excited for the ride. Before the coaster started a voice came from the speakers in the seats. “Second thoughts, well too late,” it said “Get ready to go in ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two,…

    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.…

    Elora Jacobsen Do You Dare to Ride? It has always intrigued me how much trust we have in rollercoasters. Some people won't drive in the car with a certain person because their driving scares them, but they will get on a roller-coaster without any second thought. You sit in the seat, get all strapped in, and let fate decide the rest. The feeling of the wind blowing through your hair, the sheer force pushing you into the back of the seat, and not once you think about how many accidents have occurred on a rollercoaster or how many people have died on a malfunctioning rollercoaster.…

    I still payed no attention because for some reason I thought the skytrain would go in a complete circle and head towards King George. We sat on the skytrain for the longest time ever and we realized that the skytrain was starting to head towards Commercial Drive again. We quickly got off at the next station and caught the next skytrain hoping that it would take us to King George. The same thing happened again. We got on and off the skytrain at least three times.…
