Why I hate the Hulk!
My wife (Sue) makes me go on all the roller coasters and I hate it!
She absolutely loves it and gets a massive rush; smile from ear to ear.
Why do I hate them? well I guess I am not designed to go upside down at 3 g 60mph! ! !
The first time I saw the Hulk at Universal Studios it scared me! – Not only is it big and noisy but it has that little bit where the carriages come out and you can’t quite see why it should be there! After riding it you know why! because it accelerates to 60mph in a nano second; ok it feels like that too me! ! !
I just want it to be over; my stomach ending up in my mouth doesn’t make me feel too great. So if you see a guy unable to walk properly wanting an aspirin and some water afterwards then it is probably me! None the less we go on it every visit! Last time they had the not worrying issue of “technical problems” and a cart is sent around empty for a few laps; that always fills me with great courage! :-/
To make my suffering worse I am forced onto the duelling dragon’s one after the other just to make certain I don’t feel too great. Tower of Terror (which doesn’t seem as bad as it used too) and the Kraken at Sea World are other favourites of Sues. The Kraken isn’t as bad because it stops half way for a rest (or to remove any bodies that have fallen out) – so it breaks up the stomach churning fun I am supposed to be having!
Of course Sue has now read all about Busch Gardens and all those “brilliant” rides – great! , guess where we will be going next time we visit.
Is it just me? does everyone on earth enjoy these rides? , or am I unique? .
For her it is about the best thing there is! – she gets excited like a kid as we near the front on the queue while I go quiet and just wish for my torture to be over.
What makes it worse is that I always seem to be sat next to some little kid who absolutely loves it. Afterwards he yells “that was great wasn’t it mister? ” At this point of pain I am usually unable to let go of the hand rail or talk. So I just look at him with dribble and sweat running down my red face.
Roller coasters, you can keep them. Give me something entertaining but less involved like the Indiana stunt show or perhaps the live Nemo show.
Nice, simple and relaxed – my stomach also tends to stay in the same place during these shows except perhaps Nemo when they starts singing ?
