It's no secret around here that I love the cold. I prefer winter to summer, I'd rather shovel snow than mow my lawn, Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year's and my birthday are better than Memorial Day and July 4th and Labor Day. Fight me.

Six Flags Great Adventure is embracing the cold with the new "Polar Coaster Challenge", and it honestly sounds like the least challenging thing in the world (at least to me).

Teaming up with the Special Olympics New Jersey, Great Adventure is doing their own version of a "Polar Plunge" by asking people to ride the Nitro roller coaster in nothing but shorts and a tshirt!
