Yesterday my family visited Knott’s Berry Farms for a day of fun. I grew up going to Cedar Point. Comparing the two…Knott’s doesn’t even compare to the Point. However, there is one ride that offers quite a thrill. It is a short ride…but an exciting one…as you are launched out of the gates reaching 82 mph in 2.3 seconds. Out of the gate you are shot travel up a top hat element which seems like a 90 degree upshoot and a 90 degree drop. It is quite a thrill…and it taught me something.
I always thought a good ride had to be long…so I expected this to be…well…lame. But it was not. It was the best roller coaster CONCEPT that I have been on. It was a thrill even though the ride was short…very short. Maybe we should keep this in mind in the Church. It does not have to be full of elements to be a good service. You simply have to do what you do well.
