So I haven't been to Knott's since I was about 5 (circa 1989). I believe my thinking has always been "why go to Knott's when I can go to Disney"?
Anywho, I went this past Sunday with one of my best friends and we had a really good time. That is, until...
Me: Hey, let's go on that Ghostrider rollercoaster!
Him: Are you sure? It's like, wooden and really jerky...
Me: Shut up! I love wooden rollercoasters!
Well, right after the first drop it felt like a million little elves were pounding on my head with rubber mallets. I couldn't even brace myself to keep from flopping around like a ragdoll! All in all, I walked off the ride with a pounding headache, which has never happened to me before. It can't be coincidence that there's a First Aid station close to the exit!
I've never been on a ride that was so hurty. Now I just want to know why. WHYYYYYY?? Why does it hurt so darn much? Any engineers/armchair imagineers have any explanations? Is there some reason everyone knows but me?
