Hey everyone! Today was a thrilling experience and it was a fun time! We went to Hollywood Studios and we went to Epcot again; prior to today we went to Epcot yesterday, you can see my blog about it: here. We first went to Hollywood Studios. It actually had roller coasters, which was amazing! Just like at Epcot, we had a tour to start our journey of Hollywood Studios. I have actually never been to Hollywood Studios, so it was really interesting to get to see what it's all about! The tour was called "The Science Of Disney Imagineering GRAVITY". Although it says "Gravity", most of the tour was about the whole science that comes into play, kinetic and potential energy, mass, velocity, and so much more-not just gravity. We got to see how science plays a big role on roller coasters. To prove this, we were able to go on the "Tower of Terror" ride. In the beginning, I was terrified of this ride. I have a huge fear of heights, and the ride is 13 stories high; that's 199 feet from the ground! However I kinda forced myself to, and there was other classmates going on the ride also. Plus, when is the next time I'm ever going to go to this ride, or even back to DisneyWorld? So I might as well have at least tried the ride. There wasn't much of a wait because the area was vacant at the moment, so our group got the whole elevator to ourselves. The elevator was okay-but the seat belts were really loose. I guess that's the point though. The ride accelerated up, to the 13th floor. However, there wasn't enough time for us to adjust our sitting positions and actually sit back down onto the seat, we automatically dropped back down! I felt a flying sensation, but I was super scared, I got butterflies in my stomach. My stomach got butterflies because the speed of the elevator went faster than the actual speed of gravity! After a few more times up and down the ride was FINALLY over. Overall the ride was okay, but I don't really like it. After the ride we had a discussion about how science plays into it. Then we went on this ride called "Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Featuring Aerosmith". This is definitely my favorite ride here. It's a roller coaster with 3 loopy-loops. This is actually only my first time going on a roller coaster that has a loop, so I was nervous, but for the most part just really excited. The ride was awesome! It was thrilling; the ride was fast and had sharp turns and rough edges. There were some drops and spins, and loops. But what made it also cool was that it was in the dark and they played loud music! The music just made everything so hype and fun, even though it was really loud. At the start of the roller coaster, it goes really fast and takes your photo. We watched a video where it showed how they use these magnetics that pushed all the other magnetics and then finally pushing the cart/limo fast. We only rode 2 rides within the tour, then we were set free; the tour was done. We were allowed to do anything we wanted, go on any rides. After eating a bacon burger, which was my lunch, we went on rides. While some people went on the Tower of Terror another time, I was apart of this group that went to stand in line for the individual player for Rock 'n' Roll. The ride ended and we also went on this Star Tour Simulator and this Toy Story game. The Star Tour we just sat in our seat and it moved us around; vibrating and shaking while we watched a short video. I didn't really like it though, I mean it was okay, but it just got me really dizzy. Then we went and played almost like a mini game for toy story. Taylynn and I partnered up, and we were competing against each otherwise who got the most points. She won, by a grueling of 15,000 points, embarrassing. We left Hollywood Studios to go to Epcot again. Mr. M helped out his friend, Mr. John Allen, the Waianiae Media Productions Class Teacher. He was going to ask his girlfriend to marry him. So three media schools all gathered up at Epcot where we did a formation and acted as if we were taking a group photo, but there was actually some Waianiae classmates holding up a banner saying "Will you marry me?". It was just too cute! She said yes, and they even got matching shirts! After everything cleared up, we went back to Hollywood studios and I just shopped until it was time to leave the theme park. We ate dinner at Golden Corral, with the help of Mr. M's treat. THANK YOU MR. M! It was really nice of him to pay for our dinner. After dinner we just went back home, took a shower, and here I am writing my blog. I got to go, Byee!!
