It was agony. Certain rides always make me laugh like that. Scramblers, Music Expresses, Spinning coasters (that spin) all produce that horrifying cackle. It can be embarrassing. But that caterpillar was fun. I thought I was going to keep it somewhat together until we passed the fan the first time. Then it was all over.
I haven't been to Idlewild in YEARS, great to see it hasn't changed at all. I also like how Kennywood Ent. kept the old rides that no longer fit at Kennwood and put them into Idlewild. (Catapillar was replacement of a model they already had, Tilt-a-whirl, and hopefully they still have the Super Round-up and and some others!)

So Nick just reminded me of one of the most interesting moments of the trip.
While on the Thunder bus, on our way to Busch Gardens, the Lightning bus is in front of us. They drove past someone on a Bike and the wind knocked the person right into the road! We had to swerve and thankfully, our super awesome bus driver, Fred, didn't run them over.
