It's National Roller Coaster Day 2012!The roller coaster was patented on August 16th, 1898.
From Mike GallagherHappy NRCD to all the folks on TPI! Hope you get to ride today. If not, have faith..it'll come soon. And since today also marks the 35th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, I hope your rides today don't leave you feeling "All Shook Up." Well, nobody's riding Son Of Beast, so that should help...

(I hope this gets posted today while it's still relevant..)

From Bradley KeithNot getting in a ride today, sadly. Wish I could. One time, I took a can of soda on the Beast. After the ride, I opened it and it went everywhere! Both the Beasts shook you up pretty bad, I guess.

From Dominick DIt's been raining in Central Florida most of today, so unless it was Space Mountain, RNRC, or Mummy, I couldn't ride a coaster today.
