    My brother -

    Kingda Ka is yours this time!!! You got to get on a roller coaster with some swagger. Go strait from the front gates to Kingda, get in line and stay there. If your friends tease you about being scared, act overally excited. Do not think-Do it.

    I spent my 40th Bday riding roller coasters. I can't tell you how much I love 'em.

    That's my advice-Do Kingda 1st thing and then you can enjoy the rest of your day without obsessing.

    And you have Let us know if you did it. Make yourself accountable to the WRATH OF LIL' TANKER!!!! icon_twisted.gif

    Go! You won't regret it. It is crazy fun.

    But don't do it for your first ride.

    I made the mistake of doing it for my first ride when I went last summer. Every other roller coaster was a complete anti climax.

    You aren't going to die from a theme park ride. They safety check those suckers so often it's not even funny.

    Just make sure the harness is on tight before riding ;)

    You may have nothing to worry about since the ride has been closed since it was struck by lightening in June.

    We'll still love you if you "pussy out".

    but as JOECIFER said, you might not have to ride it after all if it is not operational.

    I dunno, I do lots of things that spook other guys, like riding motorcycles at high speed, and rappelling down 200-ft sheer cliffs, but I don't like most amusement park rides myself. I don't consider my manhood threatened if I decline to ride on one. For one thing I vomit easily, and where's the macho fun in that? (Unless you're a college frat boy)

    OH come on. Seriously?

    I live in Cleveland, and just outside of the city is Cedar Point. Kingda Ka is the same thing as the 420 Dragster there... except it has a couple extra feet and an extra hill. I've ridden the Dragster about 10 times in the past couple years. Every time, it's one of the most exciting 20 seconds of my life.

    SPEED!!!! FUN!!! You will never feel anything like going from 0 to 125 in a couple of seconds. YAY!!

    It has nothing to do with "manning up." I know a lot of women who will get on these things.... and so I'm left with another thought.

    Gay men need to stop perceiving women as the weaker sex. That sort of language is damaging to all human beings.... hmmm.... now I need to start a new thread.

    How about no?

    I'd be just as content sitting and watching... while my manhood is questioned by those crazy loonies who ride that piece of junk... thank you very much!

    As a major rollercoaster buff, I say RIDE IT!!

    Seriously, it's perfectly safe and very fun. I will agree that it's not about manhood at all.

    I'll echo what Joecifer said. You might not have a chance to ride it if you go this season. It's been closed for a long time.

    Have you been on El Toro? If you have, you have absolutely nothing to fear. El Toro is like 200% more intense than Kingda Ka will ever be. Unless you're sitting in the front row, the height isn't really an issue either. By the time you realize where you are, the ride is already done.

    Kingda Ka has had some problems in its day, but I still consider it to be safer than driving to the park. So, if it's open, I say go on it. Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point is WAY better because it doesn't have shoulder restraints and it is so much smoother than Ka. But if you only go to Great Adventure, it's a good alternative.

    If you haven't been on El Toro, get your ass on that and sit in the last row!!

    By the way, I have to add that the people in those videos are complete IDIOTS. I was almost hit in the face by someone's camera once. They prohibit cameras on rides like that for a reason - flying cameras at 128 mph can do some serious damage to your face.

    I've been on some scary rollercoasters and they scared the shit out of me. Do I feel more manly for going on them? No. Do I think my life is richer and more meaningful? No. Do I see any point in doing it again. No.

    But if they're fun for you, by all means, do it. If you're just going on it because you think you have to in order to prove you can do it even though you're scared I don't see the point.

    If you want to do something scary come out to your graduating class or stage a protest march about DADT in front of your mayor's office.
