Newbie post....  
Hi everyone, I just joined this lovely community.  I love roller coasters, although I don't get to enjoy them as much as I'd like to.  :)  I'm trying to talk the hubby into taking a trip soon.  We usually book 2 days at Lighthouse Point.  I love those little cabins, anyone else stay in them before?  Anyway---this year will be exciting.  My son just turned 6 and he is dying to go on a roller coaster and I finally think he is tall enough to go on a couple of them.  Last year he was mad he couldn't get on the Iron Dragon.  He walked up to the stick where you get measured.  The guy said he wasn't tall enough, he got mad and kicked the stick, said "stupid rollercoaster" and walked away pouting. :( LOL.  Okay it was funny at the time.

1. What is your favorite roller coaster? Old time favorites are both the Iron Dragon and the Gemini.  New favorite is the Maverick.
2. Your favorite flat ride?  Um....bumper cars?  Oh wait, it's totally the Zipper!  I love that ride. :)
3. How long have you been a fan of roller coasters? Ever since my parents forced me to go on the Magnum with my brother the year it opened. (more about that later)
4. What amusement park do you consider to be your "home park?"  I live in Michigan so Cedar Point is only about 2.5 hours away. My family used to get together for our annual trip to CP. About 20 of us who would go, we'd take several cars, leave at the butt crack of dawn, stop off at Mickey D's when we got to Ohio for breakfast then get to the park around 9:30am.  It was a family tradition and it sucks that we don't do it anymore. :(   The corkscrew was the first coaster I ever went on.  
5. What is the longest amount of time you've waited in line for a coaster?  I remember crying while waiting in line for the Magnum when it first opened.  No not out of excitement, out of fear.  My parents were going on it and my brother had no one to ride it with him, so they MADE me.  I balled my eyes out through the entire two and a half hour wait.  After I got off it, you couldn't wipe the smile from my face.  I was hooked.
6. What amusement parks have you visited?  I'm deprived....I've only been to Cedar Point.  I'd love to try out some other places but I just LOVE CP and when we actually have time to plan a trip and go,  I can't imagine going anywhere else.
7. Are you 42" or taller?   Yes but I'm only 5'1 so I can't even go on the Witches Wheel by myself!
