Opinion: Adults need amusement park thrills too

Posted Friday, May 25, 2012 9:54 AM | Contributed by Jeff

From the author:

I'm also interested in what the amusement-park experience would be now that I'm an adult. It's one thing to be young and insanely giddy to ride as many stomach-contorting contraptions as you can fit into a single visit, but quite another to endure long lines, sharp back pains and the acute sensation of feeling like an intruder in a space meant for much younger people.

^Here's hoping I never find out, wahoo... turning 45 at this year's Coastin' event in Wildwood (with luck).

Pretty good article. However much I want to relate, though, I just can't. This is a hobby of mine. and so I have found over the years a nice compromise between being a kid at an amusement park, and being an adult in the real world.

I never feel out of lace when I am at a park. Maybe I'm not at that age yet or something.
