^ Thanks! We also got a great on-ride photo too, although poor Bert eventually found out lately,
he had hurt one of his arms, by throwing them up in that second shot. :(

....and I just look so EVIL in that second shot, too. Interesting Hair Time, heh.

At least he had the courage to put his arms up. I couldn't do it. I held on for dear life and screamed like a five year old the whole way. Both times. :lol:

^ Actually, I don't think he did it voluntarily either! I believe he started to lift his arms, and then the pressure and speed of the launch
just shot them above his head! I quickly lowered mine into a more "locked position" as you see in the 2nd shot, and got away with that.
Still scared me to bits, LOL!

Mamba at Worlds of Fun. I don't get to travel to far. Have been to Disney World and Universal Orlando, but I know those coasters aren't over 205 feet. Hoping to make it to Cedar Point and other places, one of these days.

Kingda Ka, rode it once, that was enough. I have decided my new height cap is about 230ft, more or less Supes: ROS at SFNE

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Superman: Escape from Krypton at SFMM. I've only ridden the new version, where you get launched backwards. After that it drops to just Goliath, and then some of the smaller hypercoasters: Xcelerator, Cannibal, and SkyRush. I'd love to get on Top Thrill Dragster and Kingda Ka at some point, but I don't think it'll be anytime soon unfortunately.
