Visited Adventuredome last month - well Inverter was the best ride - but Canyon Blaster was my worst Arrow/Vekoma sit-down to date....

Donkeys are my way of life!

^I thought it was fine in March. Scratch that, it was better than fine. It was pretty good, with some intensity, a little air and minimal head banging. Rides can be so different from day to day.

Aw, I just checked out your visit to Glenpool, a familiar place to me. I know the speed trap entering the town coming up from Okmulgee on 75 (the Beeline,) the Sonic, and Quicktrip. Of course there just had to be Indian Tacos, it is Indian Country and Glenpool is in my Creek(Muskogee) Nation territory. A visit isn't complete without home made Fry Bread and a trip to the nearest Braums for a Cherry Limeade. I haven't been back in a while, since, ironically, a oil tank blew up when it was hit by lightning, the dark smoke made it look like a tornado in the pics I took of it. Oil is The big money maker.

I am so glad you stopped by and hit up this particular small town festival. They are always such a unique mix of charm and crap. I really appreciate the pictures, not a bad carnival for such a small town.

Hmm, I wonder if any of my relatives stopped by the festival.

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

Whats Canyon Blaster like nowadays??I must admit although it was years ago when I went to Vegas, I thought Canyon Blaster was pretty good, and I really enjoyed it, remember riding it quite a lot of times as there was no queue for it.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

^It got rehabbed not too long ago, and now it's pretty much the best coaster in Vegas (well...only because Speed is gone, but still).

Sorry Jake, if I had known you'd wanted one about 10 hours before you posted this I would have went back and got one for you!

I agree with Paul, it's running very well, nice and smooth, trains looks very good as well.

Fact. You didn't miss too much, it was a hot sticky evening, but well worth it, I even ran into a co-worker and his family. The Indian Tacos smelt good but I passed. Pride Amusements seems to have a strong hold on Oklahoma carnivals, they seem to do a fine job. Glenpool PD still makes a habit of fund raising in that area, though not as much as they once did. I only live a few miles north of Glenpool off Hwy 75, so it was nice to get out for a few hours. Braums Limeade's are the bomb!

Glad everyone enjoyed. Keep an eye out on my thread over the next few days. Laura and I will be posting pictures and reports from our visit to most all of the Oregon/Washington parks and a bonus Idaho park!
