Galactica at Universal Studios in Singapore.
Never did I dream to ride in this one. The sight alone overwhelmed me.
But when the opportunity presented itself.
It seemed too good not to take it.
I am not one to let good opportunity pass me by.
At that time I didn’t know if I will be able to visit the place again.
I grabbed the chance to ride the Battlestar Galactica (roller coaster).
I was with a group of friends and colleagues at the University.
Riders at the Galactica were by pairs.
We joined the queue.
We heard screams. Loud ones.
When it was our turn to ride.
From the moment the Galactica moved we screamed so loud.
We screamed our hearts out.
Until the time the roller coaster stopped!
I was so scared.
I can’t do anything.
I can’t go out.
I can’t go down.
No rider can stop the Galactica.
Everyone was screaming their hearts out.
But when the Galactica stopped.
The riders were laughing. Chattering.
Excitingly telling each other how they felt on the roller coaster ride.
It was one helluvah experience!
