I love amusement parks and roller coaster rides! I have experienced big dips, twisting turns, high speeds, single loop and double loop varieties across the East Coast! Thrilling as they were, nothing rivals the joy of a wooden roller coaster for this gal! There's just an intangible joy that wooden roller coasters have over steel coasters for me! The nostalgic rumbling, clicking and jerky nature always hold a thrill for me no matter how old I become!
I will admit that I am blessed to live in Pittsburgh, PA, home of Kennywood Park, one of America's oldest amusement parks! Kennywood Park is blessed with both wooden and steel roller coasters, so fans like myself have both types to ride! The Twin Racers are my favorite, sorry Thunderbolt, but I love the thrill of the twin coaster cars racing around the track to see which will finish first, the red or the blue racer. After making my first video, I needed a second to contain all of the gift ideas. Ideas kept flowing of how I could justify making two, almost identical videos, just two days apart from one another! Then the twin racers idea grasped me and I was in for the ride! I assigned my " fraternal twin videos" each a color; Savor 1 is green and Savor 2 is red. Both have been posted to You Tube, both share a page on my main Weebly and Yola websites and other social media sites that I use regularly. Now the rest is up to my viewers to determine which video gets more views. Will it be Savor Green or Savor Red? I'll let you know at the beginning of the New Year. Oh! The adorable teddy bear pictured above? His name is Henry. While Kennywood does have a mountain of plush, only my online gift store has Henry! Happy Holidays to you all!
