About Tom: I always loved theme parks. But I never rode anything because I was afraid. When I was 12yrs old, my 70yr old Grandma told me "Fear can be conquered!" She then took my hand and proceeded to take me on a medium/low thrill ride at Adventureland Amusement park in Altoona, Iowa. It...was...AWESOME!!!
