Thrill Of Our Lifetimes

Ethan has graduated from mini-roller coasters to the Twister II, the roller coaster I used to ride as a teenager.

Thanks to Ethan's sensory-seeking needs, I haven't had this much excitement since I was 17 years old.

good for Ethan!! I truly admire him!! (and you for going with him). I'm not a roller coaster fan, they scare me, but I think its awesome those who do go on them! my son's girlfriend was telling us about one that is on top of one of the hotels in Las Vegas that she went on. She said part of the track was over the side of the building; she enjoyed it; I would have been terrified!

again congrats to Ethan!

Looks fun! Does he want to go on it over and over again like DuckyBoy does?

Good for him. I could never get my older boys to go on roller coasters with me - scaredy cats! But my #3 son? The Asbergers boy? Yup. He goes. He was scared, but he went anyway. First time he was about twelve, and on the way UP one of those loop-t-loop, corkscrewing rides, I saw him looking, apprehensively, down, over the side. I told him, "Son, if you can't look over the side and say 'Oh shit, what am I doing here?', it ain't worth doing." He was fine.

Oh wow, I think I was like 12 when I finally went on the big coasters. Go Ethan!
