Roller Coaster Day = My Birthday

Coaster Critic Updates

Suddenly my hobby makes a lot more sense. I found out today that I was born on National Roller Coaster Day. Back on August 16, 1898, Edwin Prescott submitted a patent for a looping roller coaster. Eighty-one years later to the day I was born. Coincidence? I think not. Finally, I can say something more interesting than, “Madonna and I share a birthday” or “Elvis Presley died on my birthday”.

Founder of CoasterCritic.com. My favorite coasters are B&M hypers and gigas. I'm also a huge fan of terrain roller coasters.
