'Extreme Terror Rides: Mega Speed'
Summer is on the wane, so how about a virtual spin on several amusement-park rides c/o the Travel Channel? This series promises an "adrenaline-pumping journey on the world's wettest, fastest and highest thrill rides," including the Guada Loopy at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Texas, the Giant Drop at Dreamworld Amusement in Australia and Poseidon's Rage at Mount Olympus Park in Wisconsin. Sorry, the Flight to Mars didn't make the cut. 10 tonight.(seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
