Hey it’s Mark Andrew. Ok, ok we rode an amusement park ride. But Bo and I were the first to do it! And that’s history right? I’m talking about the new Brain Drain thrill ride at Elitch Gardens. Thanks to the 50 or so Mix 100 listeners who were there with us. You gotta check it out. It’s a looping ride that goes 7 stories tall. Click the video.
The freakiest part of being on the Brain Drain is that is slows down and nearly pauses when you’re completely inverted. To make the effect even more interesting, turn your head to the west and look at the upside down mountains and the cars racing by on I-25 that appear to be driving on the ceiling. There are some Elitch’s rides I just can’t do. Tower of Doom and the Excellerator come to mind. But this ride I will be on every time I visit Elitch’s. Just enough fun and just enough thrill. Plus I have to remember to get a picture of the inverted Rockies on my next ride. One tip: hold on to your sunglasses. Or put them away. ;)
