Rock leads an interesting life in and out of driver mode. Not only is he the owner of Zombie Lyft, but a roller coaster aficionado too — riding hours at a time for a good cause. We interviewed this Atlanta driver to get the full story.
How many zombies reside in Zombie Lyft?
Although only one zombie rides at a time, I have three zombies to choose from and hope to add a fourth. On occasion, I’ll add a second to stare out the back window.
What do you do when you're not in driver mode?
I have two small companies, FrightStone Fx and Atlanta Haunt Review. My dream is to open a haunted house. I'm constantly researching makeup and props. I want to experiment with digital effects. If I’m not driving or working, you can usually find me at an amusement park.
You're riding a roller coaster for 8 hours in June for children’s healthcare! How'd you first get involved?
This will be my third year and my daughter's second. For the past six years I’ve provided the children with Halloween parties, costumes, face painting, and decorations. I have a huge passion for roller coasters, and from the moment my friend asked if I had ever considered doing this I was in.
What is it like to ride a roller coaster for so long?
The first two hours are a complete adrenaline rush. You’re hyped about what you're doing and people are there cheering you on. When hour five hits it's more of a matter of how to keep yourself entertained.
How can others donate to the Coasterthon for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta?
Even one dollar helps. If everyone that reads this donates one dollar, that would be huge in providing for these children at the hospital.
