Yes. I went on the rollcoaster. I wasn’t nervous or nauseaus or filled with dread.
It was on my list of things to get done.
And I crossed it off!

I didn’t even pay attention when the roller coaster was BROKEN when we got there!

But I’m getting ahead of myself. The Legend Rollsecoaster at Arnold’s Park Amusement Park on West Lake at Okoboji was  built in 1927 and is actually the 13th oldest wooden roller coaster in the U.S.
It is made of wood. WOOD!

Matt and Megan rode with me…Dan, Dave and my parents were cheering from the ground.

Attractive, I know. Looks like my hair is flames!
The ride was so BUMPY. I was shocked at how bumpy it was.
You can ride along for yourself  here!
