Give Me Five Monday *Amusement Park Rides*

My friend Becca started a new Monday meme called Give Me Five Monday. The 'Give Me Five' Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here's how it works. Each week, she will put out a random topic from her list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back to her! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn't have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified. Go over to BeccA's Buzz and check it out!

This week's topic is Amusement Park Rides. Since I don't really go many places, and haven't been to an amusement park for years, I'm just going to make a list this week. Hopefully, in weeks to come, I'll have some great photos to go along with my lists.

My Top 5 Favorite Amusement Park Rides
1. Any Water Ride
(I love anything to do with water - swimming, fishing, boating, playing in it, whatever. So, the water rides are at the top of my list.)
2. Roller Coasters
(I didn't think I would like them, and it took me a long time to get my courage up to ride them. Now that I did, I love them. My husband won't ride on though)
3. The Swings
(You know those swings, that go round and round and lift you higher and higher. I've always loved those. As I child, I even used to fall asleep on that ride because it relaxed me)
4. Ferris Wheel
(It's always been a favorite. I've never been afraid of heights. Actually, I like being up high and able to look out over the world.)
5. The Merry-Go-Round
(Hey, where else can you ride a lion, tiger, giraffe or bear while listening to corny music???)

I love this!! You named the types of rides you like...that's perfect too! I love those swings...I never wanted to get off when it stopped LOL
Thanks for participating, the meme is young...but if we keep it going, it will be fun each week! Thanks for including that link back to the original post!
Great GM5 this week!

I don't do water rides. When I was 13 I was on a water slide and I hit my head. I ended up in the hospital for 3 days with a concusion.(spelled wrong). I still don't remember that day. I don't even let my kids on water slides because I'm too scared of them now.


You did it again! Those are all my favorites, too! Maybe we can go to an amusement park together & leave the hubbies behind...the buzzkills. :)


I totally forgot about water parks! I love Schlitterbaun in New Braunfels, TX. It's so fun! Great list of rides!

I happen to agree with you on your top 5 rides. I LOVE roller coasters and water rides!

Love your #2. Years ago -- before they had babies and moved away -- I was the "third wheel" when a couple I was friends with went to Great America. He loved roller coasters but thought only losers rode alone, and she was like your husband and didn't care for them *at all*. So I was pressed into service.

I have an award for my best bud!


As a kid I was scared to death of the swings but now as an adult I love them. Still quite a thrill but I'm no longer completely intimidated! :)

Oh! And I tagged you for another meme ...


I LOVE roller coasters! Have you ever been to Cedar Point amusement park!? They have some rides there that scared the grits outta me. One of their coolest rides is the 'Top-Thrill Dragster' which launches you 0-120 MPH in like 4 seconds and it goes spiraling up 420 ft.; the ride is insane.

We have a Six Flags in the DC area and they have pretty cool rides too.
