By Batya Kairey  I was in Great Adventure in the summer. My friends all wanted to go on a Kingda Ka, but I was scared. I was not scared that I would die, but that I was afraid of the heights. My friends tried to convince me to go on a Kingda Ka, but I was trembling with fear. My friends went on line without me and tried to convince me to come on with them. They were almost at the top and I still didn’t go. When they came down, they were all talking and laughing. They were screaming how good it was. I felt so left out because I didn’t go on. On the next ride they went on, I went, too, and had the time of my life. I will never be afraid to go on any ride again because, if the other people can do it, I can do it too.
