I am 42 years old and the thrill of coastering is still there.However,I have to travel a considerable distance to get a coaster 'fix'as I live in Portland,OR.The largest coaster that my home park(Oaks Park)has is a Pinfari'Looping Star'.I usually drive the 300 miles north to the PNE/Playland park in Vancouver,BC to to ride the Carl Phare classic 'Coaster'at that park.(get your rides soon,it may not be there much longer)
Great I was hoping to keep this last thrill in my life for ever. I started riding coaster's again after I got out the army since my wife won't let me skydive anymore. Coaster's are alot less dangerous, even if its only for the couple of seconds of airtime compared to minutes skydiving.
I applaud you, Riverview Mike. I totally agree that I, too, will ride until the day I die. You are never too old to enjoy life and do what makes you happy. I wholeheartedly think that the title of "Oldest CoasterBuzzer" would be quite an honor for someone, and ever who is actually the oldest CoasterBuzzer should be very proud.
RV Mike: My pops is older than you (by a year or so) and he still loves coasters too. Last year he and my mom bost really liked Sonny I'm hoping to this year get them on Hypersonic: XLC. Though in their minds nothing compares to that P&C wooden masterpiece than resided near Belmont and Western in Chi-town! lata, jeremy --The spirit of the Riverview Bobs lives on.
