To bad this woman's life is so worthless and empty that she spends all her money and time at the amusement park. Who cares!!!!! I would think with the economy the way it is that she would save her money and be a little more carful. There are no guarantees that she will have a job....wait a minute!!! She is probably collecting unemployement or welfare benefits!

At least she doesn't smoke Crack Rocks to 'relax.' This isn't exactly newsworthy, however, good for her I guess.

May not have been the most important world issue, but it was newsworthy enough for all of us to click on it and read it. I do wonder how she supports herself, but there could be any number of ways. Also, I imagine she has a season pass.

Maybe she bought a season pass. Does she have a job or is she collecting from the Guvment? I want my money back!

I admire her for her bravery and courage. I look up to her and only hope that one day my kids can achieve such lofty goals. What an amazing role model.

Get off you high horses and thinking the worst of people. I am sure she has a season pass and maybe she lives near by so after work she goes and rides from 5:00pm until 10:00pm every night. Maybe she retired early and was in the military or some job that allows you to retire after twenty years. Her sons are grown and gone. What do you want her to do, stay home and watch TV 5 hours per night or go to a bar. Good god, give the woman a break. She is having a good time and not impacting or hurting anyone.

Um, she's 52 with two grown sons. Anyone ever thought she might be retired, work part time, or just was a stay at home mom in the past and her husband supports her? No, everyone just jumps to the conclusion that she's a lazy bum with no job. Jeez, people, this story is a welcome change from all the doom and gloom. Lighten up! Is this any less newsworthy than the article about Glen Echo? So she likes to ride roller coasters, everyone has a hobby...

Sounds like an idiot savant to me-- I know one just like her-- this sounds like something she would do-- and, incidentally, it is her husband who pays for all this kind of stuff she does--
