I have many. I always sprint when the gates open. I wait till the people in line in front of me are a giant step ahead, and do a big sprawling giant step. We sing 'Paradise City' by GnR when we are excited. On banked turns we all point down in the direction we are tilting towards the ground. When I reach the peak of a large hill I thrust upwards flying uncontrollably out of my seat. On the last overbank on Millie I hang out of the car. There are plenty more but those are some off hand. ________________________ "The end of endings is coming," PHILMORE - Our Finest Hour
At Cedar Point, we always have to get an order of french fries, drenched in vinegar, consumed as we sit on the benches in front of Fascination. We USED to play a few games of Fascination... *sigh*
At Michigan's Adventure, last ride of the day is Shivering Timbers and a slow walk out of the park (then we drive through downtown Whitehall and Montague, down back roads to my parents home in Shelby).

I don't have too many "traditions" to speak of, except for Kennywood. Traditions at this place center around food. Potato Patch fries with gravy and cheese. Elephant Ear. Funnel Cake. On the last visit of the year, buy a pound of fudge.
The only other "tradition" I have, is that on the first visit to a "new-to-me" park, I'll buy a magnet for the fridge, a shirt for my back, and a mug for my coffee.
I have licked the metal rails before, its not that cool. One word of advice: don't lick wooden rails unless you want splinters. ________________________ "The end of endings is coming," PHILMORE - Our Finest Hour
