Valmontone's roller coaster

Last week my two daughters and their friends went to the Valmontone Rainbow Magicland, which is a big theme park located in a town that's a hour and 20 minutes drive away from home. I had gone there on the night, at 11pm, and after a while I took them home. Unexpectedly, when I met my two daughters they asked me to ride the roller coaster. Obviously, I couldn't show how I was scared of roller coaster and I didn't pretend I had to go to the bathroom in order to get out of the line. Although I tryed to stand fifty feet away from the ride entrance they asked me once again the same question. So I decided to give it a try ... rather I was compelled to ride it!
In the photo below you can see me sitting last on the right with my astonished expression. My two daughters are on the left side.
The park is part of the integrated tourism resort of Rome which offers its visitors 35 attractions of various kind, such as powerful wizards and skilled adventures. It is in part fueled by the photovoltaic panels whch produce clean energy.

Io sono andato sul roller-coaster una volta e non ci andrò mai più!!! Per "farmela sotto" devo anche pagare, dovrebbe essere il contrario.

The things we do for our kids. It was great that you sucked up your fear to take them. They'll always remember their trip.
And it's nice to here that a lot of the power used for the park is green. So good for the environment.

LOL! I used to love roller coasters but now they are just too wild for me! You are brave!

You look like you are having fun. As a teacher if I do daring things it makes the kids respect me more than any 100 lessons I teach. Crazy.

That is a stunning photo! Roller coasters are ok but don't put me on anything that turns around and around and around. I get extremely sick.

I have recently been roped into going on some roller coasters at nearby Busch Gardens in Tampa which have been challenging on my system to say the least! However, it is to go outside of the box.

That sounds like a wonderful theme park to visit, glad you had a good time.

How fun! I love roller coasters and have a special scream I use only when riding roller coasters.
