I will be a coaster enthusiast as long as my body will allow me to be. I want to be 80 years old and still riding coasters. Of course, when I'm 80 the coasters will be A LOT more insane than they are now. At least that's my prediction. ;)
I have to say that when I go to the parks and see an older guy (like Ed, sorry if you see this), I think to myself that I will be just like them when I get older. A couple times at BGT, I've been waiting in line for Montu or Kumba and seen an older guest writing down something in a little notepad. Once when I asked what he was up to, the guy said "oh, about 25-30 rides today so far." This was EARLY in the afternoon, so I told him to keep on riding, and he assured me he would. That's me in 25-30 years, or so I believe.
One last item for MFRules - WHY would you believe they aren't already there! ------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you

Coasters will always have a place in my heart. Last year I saw this older lady about 75 riding Millennium Force. Let me tell you, I thought that was the coolest thing, and I still want to be riding coasters when I am a senior citizen. ------------- Life is a roller coaster...enjoy the ride!
My last coaster ride will be when my kids open up the urn and let my ashes fly from the top of the second hill of _________ (coaster of my choice to be filled in later). That will be many years and rides from now, I hope.
------------- I know you rider Gonna miss me when I'm gone
I will be a coaster lover until the day I die. MABrider has a good idea with the ashes. I'd like my ashes to be cemented in the footer of a coaster. I will just ride coasters and take pictures and hopefully design them. But I will never get very picky about what a park gets just as long its a ride. :)
