Rollercoaster-Personal Narrative

Improved Essays
Sometimes in life, one has to take chances. I was not sure of that until I strapped myself down in the scariest rollercoaster at Six Flags Fiesta amusement park. My heart was running a marathon as the ride climbed to the peak. My sweaty palms were glued on the back of a passenger’s headrest. My life was depending on it. My friend, Odina, was laughing beside me the whole time; she did not know how worried and anxious I was about this devastating rollercoaster. It is called the Iron Rattler, and it stood at a height of one hundred-eighty feet tall. The other passengers were energized with excitement, anxiety, and fear. I felt uncomfortable getting on the rollercoaster because I thought I was going to die. I thought maybe the rollercoaster would fall …show more content…
I got comfortable with the rollercoaster as if I became one with it. I waved my arms up high enjoying the crazy loops and turns. The rollercoaster went inside of a dark cave that blinded everyone. Water splashed on us like an atomic bomb as we exited the cave. Maybe this rollercoaster was not so bad after all. When the ride officially came to a halt, I was amazed on how much fun I had. My negative thoughts about the Iron Rattler were erased for good.
“Told you it was not bad you big baby”, Odina laughed.
As a matter of fact, she was right. I learned to live life without thinking about the bad things. That was the best day of the summer I experienced. I desperately wanted to ride the Iron Rattler again. We were going to eat, but I was able to convince Odina for round two. Sometimes in life, one has to take chances. I was not sure if it was true, but it was after all. I was glad to take that opportunity to experience a wild, fun rollercoaster and got over my fears. I felt accomplished that I got over my fears. This day made me want to travel on a journey to ride the scariest rollercoasters the world has to

    We started up the 200 foot drop, “Don’t look down” they kept telling me. Telling me not to look down made it even worse. It took what felt like forever to get to the top of the drop. I heard the front of the coaster stop making the clicking noise, and soon after I went flying down the 200 foot drop. I was terrified till I realised that I actually wasn’t scared, I was having a ton of fun.…

    Quietly, I sighed under my breath, “I don’t think I can do this.” However, just as I said this the spiritless roller coaster attendant strapped me in permanently ensuring I couldn’t back out. After the attendants strapped everyone in, they did their whole spiel on how we were going to have a great time, but the words muddled in my mind as I was more focused on breathing. The car moved onward and screeched at us as if in warning. Then suddenly the car stopped, I’m pretty sure just to spite us. I noticed then that to the right of us was a tall, black metal tower lit with the numbers three, two and one.…

    The rides along the trip were also important. Like the rapidly Space Mountain that left my grandma and me gasping for air. Even the simple Snow-White ride which had left me in fear since I had been scared of those dwarfs suddenly popping out in my face. My mom and dad were even traumatized after the thrilling Tower of Terror, which she describes as “ a ride that kept going down, down, down.” My favorite one has to be the Space Mission, which left me smiling, but my mom and grandma in tears from all the shaking and rumpling in the “ship.” In conclusion, going to Disney will be a memory I’ll remember forever. It had brought my family closer today and I experienced some.…

    One of the biggest roller coasters in the park! I pushed myself to get on it with Sadie so we could ride all of the rides before it was time to go. We walked up, the line was super long but it went by quickly. We got buckled in and *chuga chuga screech* then the roller coaster started to go up the first hill ever so slowly. Before I knew it there we went so quickly and we were thrown into the first loop.…

    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.…

After that response, my sister started to cry, kick, and scream. “Calm down!” I bellowed at her. I wanted to enjoy the ride, and I wouldn’t have been able to do that with her kicking and screaming the whole time. Finally, the rollercoaster started.…

    In just a few seconds they would be off, gone to travel over the track in a bright blur. The screams enclosed the car with the force of adrenaline as it appeared and disappeared in a flash. I heard the happy and terrified screams of the people on the coaster and the booming voice of the ones controlling it while strolling around Paradise Pier in Disneyland with my family. At this point, I hadn't been on the roller coaster yet. I preferred to keep myself on the ground and not on the coaster going up side down into crazy drops.…
