If you haven't seen my me page then you might not know that i didn't go on a rollercoaster before I was 18 (well not really). Just one of those things you grow up thinking, I'd like to think that i'd like that, but i'm not gonna try it through fear of finding out that I, in fact don't like it.

So it's something you never do, until you get given the chance or you're forced to then you were scared of nothing and you were stupid to have at least not found out 10 years earlier; but you're just happy you know now cos you've got the rest of your life to enjoy it now :)

So that's basically it, soon after my 18th birthday, my sister and Ivan took me to Alton Towers, and i haven't looked back since!

I've been trekking all over the country, and starting to go abroad now trying to experience as many thrill machines as possible. It's only money that stops me from going all round the world, but that time will come ;) I just need a steady job first hehe.

Below is a list of the rollercoasters I've ridden so far...

As you might have noticed, spinball was my 50th this summer, which is kinda cool. Not bad for a couple of year's riding...but if you're reading this and thinking that checking out some of the latest rides the world has to offer might be a good idea, why not visit the indispensable RCDB Website.

Alternatively, why not see what the European Coaster Club are upto? It's how I manage to get great chances to ride amazing coasters before everyone else and find out about huge new rides about to spring up all over the UK!
