Now that summer's here, our craving for adventure and fun is coming to life. Let's take a 149 mph ride on the world's fastest coaster!

I love anything that involves a thrill or an adrenalin rush. I've been skydiving, bungee jumping, and cliff diving. A couple of weeks ago Naomi Lynn wrote "10 Essential Things Utica can't live without any longer." One of the things she mentioned was an amusement park. I couldn't agree with her more!

When I was a kid, my summer vacations consisted of  road trips to theme parks every year. I've been to nearly all of the 6 Flags locations, both Bush Gardens parks, Disney World, Kings Dominion, Magic Mountain, Cedar Park, Adventure Land, Hershey Park and at least a dozen others. I love amusement parks! Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi has a coaster that will satisfy even the most extreme adrenalin junkies. It's called the Formula Rossa and it goes from 0 to 149 mph in 4 seconds. Hold on!
