Joseph’s Flashback: I thought it was just a train ride!

In 1998, I went to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, with my relatives … and I was able to visit the Magic Kingdom while I was there.  Now, I have ridden on train rides at various amusement parks for as long as I can remember … and I did see a train ride while I was at Disney World.  It’s called the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  The ride is in the Frontierland section of the Magic Kingdom.

Well, innocently enough, I go on what looks like a train ride, but not long after I get on the so-called “train ride,” I find out that I’m actually on a … roller coaster!  Can you believe that?!  Now, I had never ridden on a roller coaster in my life until then … and I have not ridden on one since I rode on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disney World 21 years ago.

Will I ride on another roller coaster again?  I don’t think so!
