Round and Round

The brunette twin doesn't like roller coasters. She's been on a few small coasters and decided she doesn't like them. Her favorite rides go around and around. The faster they spin, the happier she is. Her current two favorite rides are Test Track at Epcot and Sandstorm at Busch Gardens.

Test Track puts you through a series of "tests" like how your vehicle handles a rough road or quick stop. It's pretty entertaining until you get to the final test. For this adventure, your car is nearly catapulted through a door and spun around a track at a very high speed. I didn't think the brunette twin would like it. Given her reaction to the kiddie roller coaster, I was pretty sure she wouldn't like the speed. Boy, was I wrong. As soon as we got off the ride, she said, "I want to do it again." So, we did.

She had the same reaction to Sandstorm. This Busch Gardens adventure is one of those rides that looks like an octopus. The "arms" have several cars, which spin as the entire ride spins. It's a quick and crazy ride. The brunette twin cannot get enough of it. We rode it several times during our last visit. She laughed and laughed. As soon as we finished one ride, she wanted to do it again.

The good news is that I like the rides both girls enjoy. The bad news is Daddy doesn't like either option. As long as I can alternate between roller coasters and spinning rides, we're okay. I need the time waiting in line to reset and get ready for the next stomach turning adventure.
