Personally, I'm not as big of a ride enthusiast as I was say ten years ago or so, sadly it's something that just happens when you get older.

That being said, rollercoasters are still something I find enjoyable, as do a lot of people.

The thrill of soaring high into the sky, that feeling of weightlessness as you make your descent, and the excitement of banking around tight corners and corkscrews.
