Take a break and ride along with this 78-year-old grandmother on her first roller coaster trip. It will make your day.

Dutch grandma Ria Van den Brand recently let her granddaughter take her for a ride on the Formule X ride at the Drievliet amusement park in the Netherlands.

Granny laughed and laughed and laughed the entire way, which thankfully was caught on film by Vodafone Firsts, an organization that helps people experience activities for the first time.

We especially like the question Van den Brand asks at the end.

She also recently accompanied a 72-year-old friend on


first-time experience – taking a plane ride. Watch that video below, too.
