Well, I think you have made your kid a coaster junkie for life! At least she's started on a hobby that a garuntees plenty of fresh air, delivers a 100% pure natural high AND will help her make freinds from across the country & world!
Wait 'till she's old & tall enough to ride some of the BIG coasters!
LOL that's awesome.. you have a thrillseeker-in-training =D My first coaster was the Go-Gator at the county fair when I was 8, I screamed my head off and said get me off this thing. An hour later I was begging my mom to ride it again, LOL. My first big coaster was the Vortex at Kings Island. Now I'm a front seat rider on any coaster I can find, the taller and faster, the better!
That's awesome to hear about your daughter, I too, am the proud father of a monster. My 2 year old son loves the two kiddie coasters at Cedar Point. One night we rode Jr. Gemini ten times in a row, after each ride he's asking me "Again? Again?"
It's too much fun at this age and makes me forget about the other 15 big coasters in the park.
Love this thread! All the parents in here can attest that the greatest thrill ride at any park is the one your kid(s) likes the most.
My son loves The Howler at Holiday World. He's also a big fan of the Turkey Whirl. Can't wait until he hits the height requirement for the big ones! He's going to love them. He asks to watch coaster videos on Youtube daily and he's not even 3 yet!
My wife just rolls her eyes and says, "See what you've done to him!" ;-)
My 2.5-year-old just experienced the Wacky Worm and Dragon coasters at kiddie land at the Del Mar Fair. But I think the most thrilling for him was the Nascar "Whip" ride. And yah, watching him was a lot more fun than riding Hi-Miler. OK...fun in a different way. Y'all gotta try Hi-Miler if you get a chance. (Are there multiple models touring fairs? Or is the SoCal one the only model?)
Enjoy it now when they are that age because when they are older like my kids 15/16 they get bored easily at smaller parks and only want to go to big parks with lots of big coasters. My kids dont even want to go to parks like Lake Compounce which is my home park anymore. I dont even buy them a season pass for it anymore i just get them SF season passes since i live 30 mins from SFNE.
Since last year my 7 year old daughter has been asking me to list off the new coasters she can ride this year since she has now cracked the 48" magical barrier. Of course my wife put the kebosh on MF and Magnum for some reason, but Phoenix, Twister and RF II aren't a problem, go figure. I was excited this past weekend since we were in NE PA and I thought we'd hit Knoebels. Nope. My son cracked 42" and that's a big number at Knoebels, maybe Labor Day weekend. It's been quite a ride for my kids, they have been riding since about the time they could walk, and they have no fear. We went to Waldameer on Father's day and my daughter was pumped not only for RF II but for XScream. I hate those damn things but she LOVED it. Good times, good times...
