Happy Roller Coaster Day 2012!
As the title says, Happy Roller Coaster Day! On August 16th 1898 the vertical loop was patented. Of course enthusiasts ride these thrill rides today but some parks get into it too. Buffalo Bill’s Hotel and Casino, near Las Vegas, is giving out free rides on their Desperado hypercoaster. Unfortunately I always seem to forget that today is a holiday (at least for us coaster junkies 🙂 ) so I didn’t ride anything.
Also, be sure to go over to The Coaster Critic’s Blog and wish him a happy birthday. It’s a major coincidence that he was born on Roller Coaster day!
What do you think? Are you riding a coaster? Please comment. Thanks for reading! 🙂
