I rode an alpine slide once and discovered something. I don't like 'spam in a can' sports. Should have known better since I won't ride a roller coaster. I once rode the Scooby Do at King's Dominion when my kids were little and it scared me half to death. They went back for another ride.
I have (and will) ski Tuckerman's Ravine but I will not ride a roller coaster. I have at least the illusion that I'm in control on skis.
