(97) Still a very good ride! With the recent retracking job the ride runs a lot smoother, but the laterals and airtime can still be enjoyed (in somewhat reduced quantities). The new seat dividers allow the person on the left to get a new experience caused from the laterals: That of landing right on the small seat divider. At the end of the season, this ride was back to it's fast and furious self.
First seen at this park in 1990. New car shells for 1996. (Old ones behind Eagle)
Currently running 1 train of 2 cars, 4 per car. Seatbelts only.
A standard fairground coaster, nothing special.
A Herschel Kiddie-Oval
Back when I was short enough to ride it, I thought it was fun.
A Log Flume built with a ground level concrete trough. Only the lift and drop are above ground level. Features include a rapids-style section with several quick drops, as well as a tunnel that has a water-curtain across the trough. This year the drop did not have any water running down it, which led to a very hard,rough, and wet landing in the pool below
Main drop again has water running down it, did not try it due to cold temperatures.
My Opinion of park
Arrive after 4 and take the starlight admission. This still allows you 5 hours with the earliest closing time. Unless you are big on shows, 5 hours is way more than enough. Crowds are hardly ever a problem. If we hadn't of decided to have an informal marathon on the Screechin Eagle (got in 62 rides) we would have been ready to leave in 2 hours.
