This Week’s Theme: Wheels.
Jeremy Thompson, of Roller Coaster Philosophy, posted this photo of a ride I’ve actually ridden (and loved!): the Cedar Pointe Giant (Ferris) Wheel. I also rode the one behind it: Wicked Twister, another super ride…well just about every ride at Cedar Point is great (IMHO). PS: I’m a big roller coaster fan. 🙂
About the Giant Wheel:
At Cedar Point, bigger is better, and nothing is quite as big as the Giant Wheel. Travel 145 feet in the air, gripping at the sides of one of 36 cabins, each filled with travelers awed by the sights and sounds that only this vantage point can provide. You’ll be able to see the whole park, and the whole park will be able to see you, especially at night when the Wheel lights up. After all, it has more lights than any other ride at the park.
About RCP and himself he states:
Roller Coaster Philosophy aims to create the best written reviews, opinions and commentary about parks, coasters and related attractions in the entire world. … Currently I have been on 662 different roller coasters at 169 parks between 17 countries. My home parks are Michigan’s Adventure and Cedar Point, which I have visited every year since 1994 and 1995, respectively.

“You loved ferris wheels more than roller coasters because life shouldn’t be lived at full speed, but in anticipation and appreciation.”
