Daring Duct Tape

So why is Ken McGrath, KHQ/NBC reporter, sporting a video camera duct-taped to his hand?
If you plan to ride the new 191-foot-tall Aftershock coaster at Silverwood while taping a segment for the 11 p.m. newscast, it makes all kinds of sense. As the photo shows, it's an over-the-moon kind of ride.
While I enjoyed going "on location" at Silverwood today during a media/tourism event, my feet stayed firmly on the ground. Unless you count floating the lazy river in Boulder Beach.
A few Aftershock facts ... it takes riders 65 mph frontwards and backwards with the longest vertical drop an incredible 177 feet! Did I mention the 4.5 Gs?

That ride looks like a lot of fun! I can't wait to try it.

I had to laugh at the duct tape. It seems like my husband is always finding creative uses for it too.
