My Trip to Cedar Point

At some point in time, every single person around the world has a life changing event that is filled with good and bad memories. For me, I can confirm that going to Cedar Point for the first time changed my life. It illustrated many important skills necessary for me, to live an improved life. On my fabulous trip to Cedar Point, I learned and gained many things. I learned how to keep patience, become a risk-taker, and overcome my fear of heights. A lifelong lesson that I will always remember is that whenever you go to an exciting place, patience is fundamental in order to have a spectacular time.

I thought I was a patient person until I sat in the car, ready to go to Cedar Point. The drive from Dearborn, Michigan to Sandusky, Ohio was four hours long. Since I have never been in a car for so long my personality was very dynamic, I was starting to become very frustrated and impatient.

This structure was simple but it was more than 400 feet tall and had a maximum speed of 120 miles per hour! My cousins tried to manipulate me into riding this roller coaster, and it worked. The Top Thrill Dragster was the first roller coaster we all rode on. As consumers, we purchased our tickets and went in the line. The line was not formal; people were all over the place. As we neared closer to the roller coaster, it seemed even scarier than ever. As the next people in line boarded the roller coaster my heart organ was pounding so rapidly as if it were to rip out of my chest. Every molecule and cell in my body was shaking. I watched the people zoom across the area, screaming and shouting. Finally, it was my turn, I was so frightened at that moment that I did not want to go on the roller coaster. Nevertheless, I thought to myself saying that I could ride this roller coaster, making a commitment, and I will do so no matter what happens. Once the roller coaster started, I held onto the bars as tightly as possible and whoosh, the roller coaster took off! As the roller coaster reached its highest point, you could see the entire Lake Eerie and Cedar
