    • 2 Pages

    I hated roller coasters. They always terrified me. It makes me sick to my stomach thinking about the loops, twists and drops. One day my friend invited me to go to a Six Flags theme park. This particular friend loves roller coasters. I didn’t know why, but he could ride any roller coaster without a care in the world.
