200$ for a tube of a Vegimite? Yeah that's not nearly enough; you'd need 800 more for emotional, physical, and internal damage. Haha

Nice update for a small park! Can't wait for Waldameer. :b
You would be genuinely shocked to find out how comforting it is to be functionally insane.

Good stuff, Jake! I'm loving the photos that you've been taking with your new camera. Looking forward to the rest! Especially the pics from Canada's Wonderland, so I can see if I can spot myself in any of them. :p

Waldameer time! Took a crap ton of photos here so bear with me :)

Thanks goes out to Steve for the excellent personal tour of Ravine Flyer II and to the park for great hospitality and an amazing night ERT session on Ravine Flyer II! The coaster was running excellent, got like 22 straight rides, and it has gone way up towards the top of my list.

Steve Gorman gave us great insight on the park.

Yes, we were really there. The ride is operating by the way.
DSC_0715.JPG
Ok, maybe right this second the ride isn't operating.
DSC_0717.JPG
Unless you are wood, a nail, steel, or a particle of gas, this is not a view you want.
DSC_0718.JPG
Hurry up guys!

One last stop under the belly of the beast.

Fun fact #1: Ravine Flyer II is powered by apple sauce.
DSC_0732.JPG
This looks important
DSC_0733.JPG
Whatever you do, don't push the red button!
DSC_0735.JPG
Fun Fact #2: There has NEVER been a wheel replaced on Ravine Flyer II's train(s).
DSC_0738.JPG
Block systems, how do they work?
DSC_0740.JPG
Fun fact #3: Waldameer sells amazing cookies and you should buy one. With milk
DSC_0741.JPG
Ok, this is kind of creepy? Just add a kid?
DSC_0747.JPG
We tried the spinner again, still no spin. But still a fun ride!
DSC_0755.JPG
We rode this.
DSC_0760.JPG
And then this. The non stop spinning rides almost brought me to tears
DSC_0761.JPG
Lighting packages are cool.
DSC_0768.JPG
Pirate's cove walk through take over!!!
DSC_0771.JPG
Bumper cars are the best way to take out your aggression.
DSC_0772.JPG
I really thought this park came alive more at night.
DSC_0777.JPG
I stopped taking pictures though :(. I did get one at the end of ERT, to kind of prove it happened. But 22 straight night rides on RF II, with full trains, was absolutely epic. AMAZING night!!!

Darien next.

Great pictures Jake! Something about Waldameers Drop Tower makes it the best one I've been on!

That night ERT on Ravine Flyer II was pretty awesome, almost up there with the ERT on Boulder Dash last year. Although the 5 rides in a row on RFII middle was a bit rough as times!

Great update as usual man, Conneaut Lake looks like a terrifyingly awesome little park, and Waldameer looks like one of the best little local parks in the country, not quite Knobeles good but not that far off. I wish every town in America had a park like Waldameer.

Riding 3 in the scrambler was insane. Waiting for someone who was off the ride to post a picture.
