News: Happy Holidays to everyone on the forum! It's been another great year of topics. 2018 will be a great year. The other Admin, Jon is supposed to be coming up to Connecticut this coming spring or summer to meet up with me. Mayhem will sure to follow us. LOL. Gonna visit the still vacant AMES HQ in Rocky Hill, the last vacant AMES in Connecticut located in Seymour, and going to hit up one of the 3 remaining K-MARTS in Connecticut. As a side trip we're probably going to hit Northern Mass and meet up with Chris the founder of the AMES Fan Club. ~ Brammy. New Email brammy82@mail.com

Lived near 6 flags/went to a lot. Most were "tuned down" at that park a year later. Complaints of necks hurting. Great thrill!

I have never ridden a roller coaster, and don't really care to.
Not my cup of tea.

The most famous one in this area is the Thunderbolt at Kennywood Park,
across the road from the old Hills store that was my last stop in retail.

I went to ride one of the roller coasters at Lake Compounce Amusement Park (Wildcat, I think) and my ass was too big to fit in the ride. This was like 6 years. I have lost more weight since then, but I don't know whether or not I can fit. When I was working I didn't have a car to go to the amusement park. Plus it's expensive to get in there. (The last time I went I got in for free when my then friend who had a season pass invited me to go on Bring a Buddy Free Day.

The Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas use to have a small roller coaster up top a 909 foot tall building.
