Monster Coaster turns 30

roller coaster rideThe Loch Ness Monster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg is celebrating her 30th anniversary. I was surprised to learn that because I remember when the monster was born... there were dramatic commercials telling you to experience it.

Yet until today I never did. It wasn't all that bad... but shortly after I snapped the picture on the right, I put my camera down and shut my eyes.


  1. Wish I'd been there to ride the Loch Ness Monster with you. I LOVED that ride! I'm impressed Dad got you on it ;-)


  2. Oh, I wanted to ride it. Not sure I'd want to do it again though. Hanging upside down makes me nervous!
