138: Attempt the "Behemoth" at Wonderland for a second time
A view of Behemoth's tallest drop
On Tuesday August 21st, at approximately 6pm, I thought I was gonna get a heart attack. Seriously, this is the scariest thing I've ever done. I can't believe I did it though! I, along with my friends, went on the now second tallest and fastest steel roller coaster in Canada, the Behemoth. I felt like backing out many times but we told funny stories in line to keep ourselves distracted from what we were about to experience. Then, we reached the front of the line, went into the terrifying seats that look like they provide no protection at all and by then, it was too late to back out. So I closed my eyes, while saying "oh my gosh" non-stop and telling my friend that I hate her for making me do this (even though I actually wanted to do it too). However, before the ride went full-blown I told her I loved her, in case I die on the ride and it's my last words to her (by now you can probably tell that I overexaggerate most things). But honestly, it was so scary but fun at the same time. I screamed the entire 3 minutes. The ride's highest point is 230 feet and it goes at 124km/hr. Would I recommend this to anyone? Sure, if you like danger, thrills, and have a really good heart.
