As I get older the coasters get better and better and I get a little nervous standing in line.

We are lucky, we have so many cool places in Ocean County that have some awesome rides from the boardwalks to Six Flags Great Adventure.

If you think back to that very first roller coaster you were on, it's something we always remember. I'll never forget the Sooper Dooper Looper at Hershey Park. That was the very first roller coaster I was ever on, and I'll never forget it.

Several of my co-workers were on their very first coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure. We had Promotion Coordinators at one point and they're a little younger, tell me that their favorite first coaster was the Jet Star in Seaside Heights. That's the coaster that was in the ocean after Super Storm Sandy.
