From Emerald63: Greetings SirNott. I finally got around to faving your history LOLs for the site. I especially like the Words of Wisdom one. It's sooo true - 99% of guys "don't need no stinkin' instructions!" Until they screw up... Thanks for letting us know about your stuff and have a great weekend. :)
Wow! Weird! I was thinking harder and I think my story is actually from around 1980. I would have been almost fourteen. It was a church group in my case, too. I went about four or five times after that, but you can be sure I never went on that darn Gemini again! I grew up in southern Michigan, near Jackson, so Cedar Point was not horribly far to go for a school outing (band or senior trip) and once I went with friends and their parents. Still the only amusement park I've been to, and my last time there was 1984!
You stole that Cedar Point story from me! I swear! I was like twelve on the Gemini. Going up the hill was fine, but as soon as it started down that first big drop I was rising up in my seat. The girl I was riding with had the smarts and calmness to slam the bar down over us. I never saw another moment of that ride. Eyes closed until it was over. Nightmare!!
