Here is one of my favorite topics. Rides at theme parks!  A brand new thrill ride is coming to Fiesta Texas-San Antonio.  Dr. Diabolical’s Cliffhanger is billed as the world’s steepest dive roller coaster. This exhilarating new thrill ride features three sleek 21-passenger trains, 2,501 feet of soaring track, a thrilling face-first Cliffhanger hold prior to a beyond-vertical 95-degree first drop, multiple inversions, extreme airtime, and an immersive steampunk story starring Dr. Diabolical and her plot to harvest adrenaline and fear. De. Diabolical Cliffhanger will hold 21 passengers at one time. Almost double what the other coasters can do. Check out the POV video below.

Dr. Diabolical's will add to an already impressive lineup of thrill rides including, The Superman, The Goliath, Batman, Golden Lasso, or the new Joker at Fiesta Texas just yet, but I do enjoy riding high thrill rollercoasters. My son and I, make it a point to get to a theme park at least once a month all year long.
Just so you know, I have not always been a thrill-seeker, I didn't ride my first rollercoaster until I was like 20 years old.  My girlfriend at the time(now my wife), forced me to get on the 'Road Runner Express.' My response after my first ride was, 'that was pretty intense.' She just laughed.  She said 'that's a baby rollercoaster.' Don't even ask about how I reacted on my first ride on the uphill water coaster 'Blastenhoff' at Schlitterbahn.  We don't have time for that story, however, I am sure that my wife would love to tell all of you.
Here is a list of my top ten thrill rides in the state of Texas from the three big Theme Parks, Fiesta Texas, Sea World, and Six Flags Over Texas.  Oh yeah, I will also add my picks from my family's favorite place on the planet, Disney World. This would include my most recent trip to Disney, in which I finally got to ride Rise of the Resistance. Next year I will modify this list, with our first trip to Univeral Studios.
