Most places have a smaller one and you can work your way up. Thats how I and everybody else I know did it.
If you kid is crying at load, the kid shouldn't be going on the ride.
So I told him maybe next year when we go to Hershey. Like you suggested Robert, I'll see if he wants to try Super Dooper Looper since it has only one loop to deal with. If he likes it, fine, I won't try to trick him into going on one of the others there. If he wants to go on one, fine, if not there's always another year to mature into a coaster nut like me.

As Robert said, be positive, only do what they want to do. She was begging to ride all of these. She wanted me to "stretch" her so she could ride the Diamond Back - yeah right honey 6 inches? That's a stretch all right!
