With Spring Break upon us, I think it would be fun to write about one of my favorite topics: thrill rides! However, 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, '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 up-hill water coaster 'Blastenhoff' at Schlitterbahn.  We don't have time for that.

I have come a long way since then, I won't ride everything but I will ride about 90% of them.   Have not ridden the 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. 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. Let me know how your list would play out and what ride you would add to my list.
