Iron Dragon and Disaster Transport at Cedar Point, first inversions were on Double Loop at Geauga Lake and by the end of that day I was marathoning Dominator and officially obsessed and willing to ride anything
Good luck with that! Something I tell people to brave their fears of coasters, heights in particular, is that you will only be at that 205 foot peak for a few seconds at most. It's not like Stealth hovers around that height during the entire ride, it's bound to end sooner than you might think. On the topic of Japan, I know that there seem to be a lot of amusement parks there with very wacky and thrilling coasters; trying a few in Japan might help you ease your fear a bit before conquering Stealth.Mine was Nemesis Inferno at Thorpe Park. I know it sounds silly but I’m from England and not well-travelled outside of the country (and within the country I’ve only been to a few theme parks) so I was really anxious about getting on my first proper ‘extreme’ coaster. I loved it a lot though.
I’m still looking for a coaster that will finally break my fear of heights in a little though. Stealth is now the only coaster at Thorpe (my closest major park) I still haven’t plucked up the courage to ride but I’m planning on forcing myself onto it next time I go, if only because I’m studying in Japan next year and I know I’ll regret it if I chicken out of certain credits there because of my fear of heights. Wish me luck!
It took ages to compose myself on that, I started riding about the time of its opening and was a slow start....once you conquered your fear of Oblivion, everything after that has been a piece of piss.
