After thinking on it for a while I have decided to take on a Guinness World Record. The record I will be going for will be the Longest Time Spent Riding A Rollercoaster. I will be doing the record at the Six Flags in Texas in March if my application gets to the next step in the application process. This is just what I got back from GWR. I'll also be looking for sponsorship soon after it gets approved and collect funds from peopel intrested in helping me break this record with the names of people that help me with sponsorship on the front of a t-shirt I will wear on the coaster that way names can be seen on the front of the shirt while I ride it, this is'nt 100% yet but I hope it does make it to the next step of approval in 4-6 weeks.

Wow!!! Good luck and try not to blow chunks...too much :)
I actually had a fear of Roller Coasters until me and my family went to Branson and I rode the Roller Coasters at Silver Dollar City I stayed on one of them for 6 hours with no problem at all. Given they had some rule where I had to get off walk around and get back on each time but when our family went there was pretty much nobody at the park so I did'nt have to wait long.

Uh. Isn't the current record something like... 3 days? I'm getting sick even thinking about it.

My personal record is 26 minutes

So all seriousness I wish you the best of luck my personal record is 26 minutes!! This summer I was at the local fair with my kids on a small roller coaster like ride and the operator walked away and never came back:confused It was cool at first but when the five minute ride turned into a 10 minute ride:D it really started losing any factor of fun associated with it after 15Minutes:(At the 20 minute mark the kid in front of us started screaming for it to stop and only after half a dozen kids started screaming for several minutes someone finally showed up and shut the ride down at the 26 minute mark:angryThe fair manager profusely apologized for the incident and gave everyone a pass for unlimited rides:eek LOL my only thought was WTF free rides ??? so you can trap us our next ride for an hour :p

Ha that's one of the things that are needed for the event, I also need to get a newspaper person or News person to be a witness to the event and have constant video of the event.So I have a ton of people to talk to and I'm currently on the phone with Six Flags Over TX.
