OK Angie, if I can handle RNRC you can too! I will also admit to being really nervous the first time I rode it (I held on for dear life and had my eyes closed the whole time). The launch is pretty crazy but it's also pretty fun too. Amazing how your opinion of something can change after a few rides. I hope you like it! The Animation Academy is great! That's always a good thing to do when it starts to get really hot outside.
