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.

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!!!

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.
