My sisters - Kath and Wendy (Eleen was too little) and I rode the Cyclone when we were kids. It remains in my mind the scariest carnival ride I've ever been on. Wendy just let out one blood curdling scream that never stopped. Then, when we got off - she said "Let's do that again!" What bothered me the most about the ride is the noise - I felt like the whole wooden structure could collapse any any time from the vibration. I'm glad I did it - and I'm glad you got to experience the beast!

Hey Cathy,

Congrats on tackling that beast -- and I don't mean the guy sitting next to you. My father once shamed me into riding my first roller coaster (the Dragon Coaster at Rye Playland) and I begged him to take me on it -- twice more! Just this summer I was shamed into doing another never B4 as our 19 year old niece cajoled me into doing a reverse bungy and some kind of insane swing thing that propells you directly at the ground, saving you at the last minute by the natural arc of the swing. I swore I wouldn't scream. Hah! I yelled my head off like a little girl. It was just the thrill my newly 40-year-old self needed and it helped cross a quinetessentially Singaporean never B4 off my list. Now it goes in the never again category!
