Thrill-Seeking Couple Gets Married on Six Flags Roller Coaster

A thrill-seeking Rhode Island couple has taken the plunge at a Massachusetts amusement park, screaming, "I do," as they plummeted 20 stories on a roller coaster. 

Ashley Schiller and Thom Marchetti, of North Kingstown, were married earlier this month on a Superman-themed roller coaster at Six Flags New England in Agawam. Immediately after the ride was over, they got back on and did it again, with a second batch of wedding guests in tow. Marchetti's queasiness prevented a third trip. 

Schiller is a lifelong amusement park enthusiast who once had her parents buy thick-soled shoes to meet height requirements. She tells The Providence Journal she had dreamed of the moment since she was 8-years-old. 

For their honeymoon, the couple visited another Six Flags, near Washington, D.C.
