Totally Extreme and Historic Roller Coasters of Today and Yesteryear

Remember those old dinosaurs you use to ride many years ago at the local amusement parks? Well, some of these have gotten a facelift, and some remain some of the most famous, original thrill rides of our time.

The Diamondback is the new hyper-coaster at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, my old stopping ground. The coaster measures 5280 feet long, stands 230 feet in the air, has a 215 foot drop, has 10 complete drops, 2 helix measuring 323 and 287 degrees, and reaches speeds of 80 mph. The Diamondback “is similar to the Behemoth at Canada’s Wonderland in dimensions and statistics, and like Behemoth has staggered seating.”

I love me some roller coasters, the scarier the better. Unfortunately they don't have the stuff like magic mountain near me. I went there years ago and had a blast, but always crave more. That's why skydiving has become my new passion.

Oh, and from my recollection, the idiom is "Stomping Ground" not stopping ground.
