    Does this do anything for you?

    Wouldn't do it for love, money or corndogs, but obviously a lot of people like it.

    I'd probably do it.

    I would do that. In fact, it's not far from Cleveland, so I may stop by on my next job interview.

    Doesn't look that bad. I'd definitely ride it.

    Cedar Point is the home of great roller coasters. Which means it does nothing for me. :)

    I've been on a rollercoaster with a 220-foot initial drop (yes, I know there's one with a 300-foot drop at Cedar Point) with no view of the track, so yeah, totally. The twist on the descent actually seemed to make it not as extreme. I felt that knot brewing in my stomach just watching it, but it went away as soon as the twist came.

    Top Thrill Dragster is five years old now.

    The ride lasts barely longer than BYH.

    That looks like it would be freaking' unbelievable. You'd be gargling on your guts on the way down, but man alive, how bad could guts possibly taste during a moment like that?

    I'd love to ride that thing, but I can't handle that shit anymore.

    If I was 18 again, I'd probably ride that thing six or seven times in a row without a problem. Now looking at the video makes me feel like my head is floating somewhere about Canada while my knees buckle somewhere in Kentucky.
