Busy times. A couple weekends ago we made a trip up to World’s of Fun with some friends and co-workers. After three years of harassment, I finally agreed to go on The Patriot roller coaster. “Friends” assured me it wasn’t as bad as the Mamba roller coaster (which somehow I’m fine with riding), but I couldn’t believe them since I knew the Patriot went upside down. The claim was that you can’t really tell when you’re upside down since the ride is fast and smooth. Turns out they were right. We survived the ride and immediately got in line to ride a second time. Good stuff. I also recommend their new roller coaster “The Prowler”. This was a smooth, fast wooden roller coaster I was really impressed with.
