Story: Rush

By: Agent Exeider

[Mystery] [Thriller] [Sequel] [Rated T-13]

(This is the second story in the “Shadows in the Dark” series.  You can find the first story HERE)

A pulse-pounding drug mystery that follows Nick and Judy in following a trail of breadcrumb clues on their first case as detectives-in-training. What follows is a non-stop thrill ride that places both in constant danger in tracking down the masterminds of this new, nefarious drug network; all the while building the romantic relationship between the two. Thoroughly enjoyable and never a true dull moment, I had great fun reading through this one.  ~DarkFlameWolf

This Day in Disney History

July 29, 1999:  The Rock N Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith opens with a special invitation only party, where guests can ride Disney’s first inverted roller coaster with a member of the band.  The ride opens to the general public the following day.

This was my first “real” roller coaster, since it went upside-down, and was absolutely amazing.  Albeit short, with it’s perfectly synced music tracks and high speed launch, it was a great introduction to inverted attractions.  The best part for me is the very beginning.  Count down along with Steven Tyler before your super-stretch limo screeches into the darkness during your 3 second long, 0-60 mph take-off.  You’ll have to see it and feel it to believe it!

Happy 15th birthday, Rock N Roller Coaster!
