I remember going as a little girl to 7 Springs and going down the alpine slide. I thought it was the coolest thing ever!

I went last summer and took a ride down. I am probobly too old for all that but it was still great fun.

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.

I love rollercoaster but am deathly afraid of sled riding, especially of jumps would much rather hit jumps on the skis. It hurts alot less than being on a sled.
