^There's no Pooh like Crappy Pooh! An e-stop would actually be an improvement, as you've shown here, Erik.

 

I actually rode this thing "sad-and-pathetic" style all on my lonesome last summer. I never thought I'd ever pine for the return of the Country Bears, but . . .

 

I am looking forward to checking out the Tokyo version, though.

Ok, Its Vegas time.

 

Vegas: Part 1

200703080069.jpg.dff67ae885df295eb004a59ce664da96.jpg

After Manhattan Express

200703080060.jpg.1cc6d389f47c5e42984b1544f03864a5.jpg

I doubt that the new trains made much of a difference.

200703080059.jpg.4b7375e1d219f9e8f7bbb1b0addae26f.jpg

#12.50 to ride a Togo coaster? Yes please!!

200703080058.jpg.de3406b7b5bf2b3734186fe4ac7c036c.jpg

Oh dear.

200703080056.jpg.c663bc539ae32e8b347cc50cb5d8d84e.jpg

Onward to NY NY Hotel and Casino.

200703080053.jpg.8d6ff421882e111c7aba3807049a4eda.jpg

Our first launched-looping-Premiere coaster.

200703080052.jpg.fe472f4497cf60dfe3ed8371e9db16ad.jpg

It was quite fun, the 2nd launched section was unexpected.

200703080051.jpg.5e3281d765a0c1a6e7e55a2c44eaa86a.jpg

Best coaster in Vegas.

200703080049.jpg.8c84936633f5af0520582190e0b97943.jpg

This one costs $10.

200703080047.jpg.182b0a3bfae392479605dcbc230129be.jpg

Lots of Nascar fans in town due to the race.

200703080046.jpg.055e4b8753ca333b6fecb48b49eb3296.jpg

How can you be that bored in Vegas?

200703080045.jpg.d49a7584036d859d9c78f231e51c47a9.jpg

But that is ok, I am sure this one is a much better coaster.

200703080044.jpg.1bf3fbf815b8fe8df5c548f958cc9c7b.jpg

They no longer have a credit, so we skipped this one.

200703080041.jpg.76d2562bf03d491b4428cc167ea43c2e.jpg

Yep, all of this is found here.

200703080031.jpg.73cf24d8487c3f6e67560bbcfeb44825.jpg

We decided to pass though.

200703080032.jpg.b89fe0ae84f09cea241608b97118be84.jpg

They do have a 2nd credit.

200703080036.jpg.2d32974d42bb2f7d16031cdd0aabd4af.jpg

The Canyon Blaster train.

200703080035.jpg.3ddb69f6818706c1c7e6e4f178ba56e2.jpg

All about Canyon Blaster.

200703080038.jpg.5fb69d4aa263a38fb842a860fb14e929.jpg

It pretty much goes all over the Adventuredome.

200703080040.jpg.ec647575a0baac6ebd6c7c3c1a2271cc.jpg

This actually was a pretty smooth Arrow coaster.

200703080030.jpg.e2486a771c77553008d5a378e8eb4b28.jpg

Its costs $7 to ride Canyon Blaster.

200703080029.jpg.9276008e2d73b316a109f38eff89e879.jpg

It is free to park at the hotels.

200703080027.jpg.64e03f18bc3b2e5628ab98411750c1bf.jpg

Yeah, we stopped by the Adventuredome first.

200703080026.jpg.791004520cef035dfbcae6a237e65421.jpg

For you Prince fans.

200703080023.jpg.86caebaf6fc863a07c8b1600dddd0b2d.jpg

Almost there.

200703080020.jpg.fe1355b42ccd9392211b824eb7020a6a.jpg

Yeah, its really in the middle of no-where.

200703080017.jpg.d3fd0f3a0be04f17ed4e38f247ecf5a7.jpg

They do have a monorail that takes you to the other area hotels.

200703080013.jpg.52f45c768e7776497890186798ddc7a1.jpg

The coaster track goes all over the hotel's property.

200703090102.jpg.dac19535aa7364e807e7f52e738ce056.jpg

One of the smoother sections of the coaster.

200703090101.jpg.ae0e1baf0a2e0a3f574b948d8c95548a.jpg

I can't remember if this part had bashing or airtime.

200703090100.jpg.3dacbc62f3910f9388875df5f2c6e28f.jpg

After leaving the hotel it goes up 200 feet.

200703080007.jpg.15bc225e5d4839658c2bee87c35b8e29.jpg

This is what the coaster train looks like.

200703080005.jpg.297a0031bfd603b1fabc8b5880a5c1d1.jpg

Yeah, its costs $7 to ride.

200703080004.jpg.91bc97f5780635282e76fe18d218822e.jpg

As well as a roller coaster.

200703080002.jpg.b61bd448057a2708127a7be8b3ca1464.jpg

Yeah, they have a Buffalo shaped pool.

200703080001.jpg.7f6318666694c4c06cc827d3882253a7.jpg

We stayed at Buffalo Bill's in Primm Nevada.

I've been enjoying this photo TRI was in Vegas last week, and skipped all those coasters. One ride on ME many years ago was enough! I don't remember CB being too bad, and rode Desperado many, many years ago when it was still OK. I'm thinking that there will probably never be another coaster built in town, as the casinos seemed to have shifted away from any sort of "family" focus and are moving back to the old standards, gambling and booze.

^^ Yeah I totally noticed that the area was not very family friendly. We did not care much for Desperado. The first drop was pretty good, but the rest wasn't. It is still better than Manhattan Express though.

Vegas Part 2

200703090098.jpg.13e33e472e38add8e3003f6688f58bbf.jpg

I think its funny how a little dinky place of eating from Clearwater, Florida has made it so big.

200703090097.jpg.74d16d36400ef1a26124eda08416d14c.jpg

Blah Blah Blah.

200703090092.jpg.4a2d2c1ee01ed1d94ec383be52bf5c81.jpg

Just like Italy.

200703090096.jpg.f98549ec2f94489a05c62768ad74ca91.jpg

See, Pirates.

200703090093.jpg.ddded493197597f7eb222b2ad7965c94.jpg

You find the free pirate show here.

200703090090.jpg.34faf303333d56ac895638a0bc1d83b4.jpg

Kind of like the low rent James Bond hotel.

200703090087.jpg.97b2b8321aae7f0a19d0d1c0ac7ac6da.jpg

Maybe we can stay here next time.

200703090085.jpg.8128ff9ef28afbe853d0c3c2d084c644.jpg

These were very cool.

200703090079.jpg.1d3733abe77a559c8df59f6317e80c8b.jpg

Veags is really an awesome place.

200703090078.jpg.d068022b5c9e6f928abf3d1c9e149ba8.jpg

The Hoff: In Paris.

200703090076.jpg.58ea914e3a8653edcec6b514ad34326a.jpg

Just like Paris, I am sure.

200703090075.jpg.7c6ab102333cfe3a243d01ad420f11b8.jpg

There are some of these cool fountains around the Paris Hotel.

200703080072.jpg.81f31bce06933c35e850f516cb842cf7.jpg

You find these cards everywhere around Vegas.

200703080071.jpg.0dc9f48a5da451f83a681d007615ec96.jpg

The Strip at night.

200703080066.jpg.97b3631f5c451b104e2edd280266504d.jpg

The Luxor was certainly interesting.

200703080063.jpg.dfe29cc9d3aab5b071f3b73297f5b899.jpg

Excalibur's castle is bigger than Disneyland's.

HOOVER DAM time!!!

200703100178.jpg.b774789d05052beb95b39c0f22d41cb7.jpg

Inside the train car.

200703100177.jpg.ed1510c202724f91671828383947362e.jpg

Basically the seating is inside a train car.

200703100176.jpg.3e2e3d8992db22cc2da4d9c986eef6fc.jpg

The Barstow McDonalds. The last time I ate here was when I was 13.

200703100175.jpg.1d0ee03804eb107d9c9060e5183ad079.jpg

This is what the Zzyzx Road sign looks like at night.

200703090174.jpg.7df19b2095889a16df5551633739995a.jpg

Too bad Soren ate all the food.

200703090170.jpg.a55a9f75fe1127f080eb2bbe15d988bb.jpg

We felt like going to Dairy Queen to eat Blizzards.

200703090169.jpg.07a0661cc2fbfc59775fd59b7cc44607.jpg

Another McDonalds playland bites the dust.

200703090167.jpg.dc7919f648eec9cf456aed36959f206b.jpg

LOL!

200703090168.jpg.a8448ad0c3dec0c1909b870898187310.jpg

Sorry ladies, Soren is already taken.

200703090166.jpg.d13e14503b56ac63eec0a3a8579b6bf4.jpg

Soren almost got smashed.

200703090163.jpg.8c8632d1a0d1c50ed766f39acb5412cc.jpg

Poor Puppy.

200703090161.jpg.a0a4c3d2c7467fbc8b710fccc6f6be58.jpg

They really should add a speed waterslide.

200703090158.jpg.0152c8f03f0e1936937d261221a9a89a.jpg

Yeah, you do get a nice view.

200703090154.jpg.3038ec637b78738d98238494a37212a4.jpg

No Soren, don't!

200703090145.jpg.6ee451210912243d5826d8e250bc3d00.jpg

We just jumped ahead one hour.

200703090141.jpg.fe5ff83c43fc66b7bd9fd294577c3dec.jpg

Basically this is where we enter Arizona.

200703090139.jpg.680d59e90d68b9b711e33509f5316c0e.jpg

Lake Mead.

200703090138.jpg.3245ce3bd4aa7fbe35749a7f5945e31e.jpg

Yes, we are in Nevada.

200703090136.jpg.cb7e9c65301050ef032589465c2aa1b6.jpg

I had a nice nap during this presentation.

200703090133.jpg.243a2342f54ed77c66d690b9113f76ad.jpg

Yeah, Hoover Dam.

200703090126.jpg.5d3d7834cf0efbdcf075fb6ef89af670.jpg

They are building a new bypass for the highway.

200703090117.jpg.a576c8202ac52cac7ea46d9a0b2d4e98.jpg

We are pretty high up.

200703090114.jpg.57d3ef2bc0e905c977f44efa76eec8ab.jpg

They just re-opened this area a couple of months ago.

200703090112.jpg.e9d281ead5724a4da988f1084af1bdca.jpg

After they cram 100 people into an elevator, you go down and see this.

200703090110.jpg.e25b675f5ae287dbb604f804767db82a.jpg

Its the ticket for the tour.

200703090106.jpg.59588ea10b1a146cf5558a8b41073f5b.jpg

The tour starts here.

200703090103.jpg.b6925a68b0626da3d9450a41f89e0db8.jpg

The next day we went over to the Hoover Dam.

Ok, its time for the Winter Solace event at Knott's Berry Farms.

200703100186.jpg.bad549765d2b7082d1bc93584b65e54f.jpg

Isn't he riding the wrong coaster?

200703100184.jpg.6145535f03746efd9f3eaeeafeb91a00.jpg

Jaguar!

200703100183.jpg.42ae1654ad60163ec9befb00da5f93ac.jpg

Jaguar! was the first ride of the day.

200703100182.jpg.751f2bc3d66fa7dcbcb09f571e3a8e84.jpg

Its also was our very first coaster event with ERT.

200703100181.jpg.7876af54dc57e71bdc1af3c584b2b021.jpg

Its our very first visit to Knott's.

200703100179.jpg.28a8827a08f78970d5a2fac86e5fae30.jpg

Its really freaking early in the morning.

200703100208.jpg.2051be890d8a20e192dfde48e0e42775.jpg

We had a really bad ride on Ghostrider.

200703100204.jpg.c9b24b14462d1f4ba3e86bed1dd94162.jpg

The most annoying speaker in the world. This thing causes headaches.

200703100203.jpg.0f7893acd2ba5969a3b5f72c1d113e6e.jpg

We did not want to stay until 10PM for ERT, so we decided to wait 30mins.

200703100200.jpg.d947b118c9d7f02db94e6a5972b77d6b.jpg

Next was Ghostrider.

200703100248.jpg.a6ac234e386340053c98cea972655a84.jpg

It was not a bad ride, though its not my favorite B&M invert.

200703100244.jpg.bb182b35d1de642d2450b16ea15dca21.jpg

Silver Bullet certainly had a unique layout.

200703100199.jpg.2d7a719e65deb702e34011d750e8d3cd.jpg

Lucky that we were already in line when they opened the park.

200703100198.jpg.82a5e6ca8dc2ff679d44c5e1050b565c.jpg

Next coaster...

200703100194.jpg.11439d4c9b6b9b8bfb9df9a3e9000e06.jpg

I can't believe that they had ERT for this one.

200703100193.jpg.fb8a3a04155fbabb428349d1980475d3.jpg

Say "hello" to Chris Godsey from Rideworld.

200703100192.jpg.7f56464d212d64abf7b0cccca00cfb37.jpg

We got to ride it 5 times. ERT rocks.

200703100191.jpg.23be4592249861a81a6d1f020192c77e.jpg

This one was my favorite coaster on the trip.

200703100187.jpg.686e1eb38525d3ca0d6f08dba54db5eb.jpg

What a huge line waiting for this one to open up.

Knott's Part 2

200703100260.jpg.09004a7d9d6df7bc1700567779587334.jpg

Because we still need these credits.

200703100258.jpg.b460a6c9bebb160ca92fae0d1a94d779.jpg

On our way back to you know where.

200703100234.jpg.88ec0b562c17c578580ca4f842e21c9d.jpg

Bye Ghostrider, you are a crappy coaster now. :(

200703100233.jpg.5fa9e452f2a36d6ef054b618c5868b79.jpg

And got to experience an ACE buffet.

200703100239.jpg.6951b52cc03a40a1509cacbd1ac1f4a9.jpg

We visited the old school house.

200703100241.jpg.0f5870a92ef721374d96a83266d9c1d7.jpg

Found one of Yeti Ball's redneck cousins.

200703100255.jpg.1f4a1986a7f79916b046150c748c9325.jpg

Watched Soren have fun with the shooting gallery.

200703100254.jpg.d14cd6872468b62a6cd3fc7b96f74807.jpg

Rode the sort of lame S&S tower.

200703100230.jpg.a01f05b2f118e1058ff1c3b2e4a1a134.jpg

Watch Silver Bullet go by.

200703100253.jpg.20a77d3ab56f42413bd3f92fc9f43382.jpg

It sure felt like a real horse tail.

200703100252.jpg.7f2371b47fa4e2f3c8c1a1fd0dbaab48.jpg

Yeah, that is us.

200703100250.jpg.95b476fc326c461ce6e2391d3527746e.jpg

We rode the Merry-Go-Round.

200703100228.jpg.99cd48054feea78c12a07bfe2b61e477.jpg

It certainly was a unique park attraction.

200703100227.jpg.2a6069e31e952d5a53832e742f8477f8.jpg

We did do this attraction as well.

200703100223.jpg.d580c592e0f64c64b05cacd181b9f13a.jpg

We did the little train ride through the mine.

200703100214.jpg.9bdbfe3b1bb3b7b8eb452ac9e7b38bc9.jpg

We watched people pan for gold.

200703100218.jpg.7e591e50c42c5409cee242a4a5ee09c2.jpg

So we did do the train.

200703100220.jpg.39c178ef51ee87a5ac09320650264340.jpg

We got all the credits finished by 10:45 that day.

Back again to SFMM for the WCB. Nothing better than having ERT for X and Tatsu.

200703110304.jpg.bb0d66a2ee34f661b459d7a6935310a7.jpg

Weeeeeee......

200703110300.jpg.f796cd8eb7f0c2661a23366ae4e24644.jpg

Yeah, we really liked it. Best flying coaster we have ridden, and we have ridden quite a few.

200703110298.jpg.b88bb74fe180ead1a8e6af32ed69b290.jpg

Yeah, we rode Tatsu 3 times that morning.

200703110297.jpg.34d29467c01ddf00c11ee30874ff70a3.jpg

Leanne is ready to fly!

200703110296.jpg.044e6f73fa82caa77f0e7dee3b05673e.jpg

Here they go!

200703110294.jpg.74329fc015be8d8fc76f67883556d461.jpg

Ready to fly?

200703110295.jpg.6ddeddc7afc9d0c882e06e86e926b3bc.jpg

How often do you see the station look this dead?

200703110293.jpg.cb7cce78c8082b02ece2e74d6b95a91f.jpg

Look at that line!

200703110301.jpg.57942d09864c701cf888e424e2b2c4a4.jpg

Tatsu is now Leanne's #1 coaster.

200703110290.jpg.8041d6a1d8e7f98d4813128745e8584e.jpg

3 back to back rides on X in 20 minutes.

Even though there was like only 50 people in the station. They were running 2 trains.

200703110288.jpg.8848b23462cd735b654c30e2fbb1aa31.jpg

Yeah, the track is quite wide.

200703110287.jpg.b78dda1c5f048d3b83c63bac53b1d058.jpg

Here is the lift hill.

200703110286.jpg.069d7a055192710283d2edf7e5e9d030.jpg

How often do you see nobody in the Queue?

200703110285.jpg.14c8baeb983d31ef5797d7c1cfb99245.jpg

We enjoyed X. I understand it was running really well that morning.

200703110284.jpg.e9d5ea7caa424087fc579725b7a7b578.jpg

Oh heck yeah.

200703110291.jpg.1a7dd11117498d54848cdbc2761996cc.jpg

Yeah, everyone has this photo.

200703110282.jpg.81afb7f4902f4b86c5d244c6409a9e18.jpg

Yeah it goes upside down a lot.

200703110281.jpg.e89a312a7f187a513dd9836d86aeddff.jpg

We had a whole train to ourselves.

200703110279.jpg.3928726e41d617651cf916e29c7edd87.jpg

Unlike everyone else, we rode Viper first.

200703110275.jpg.e0539dcb08d097b42d4302b3ee789334.jpg

Yeah, some of these are true.

200703110274.jpg.21ad24c9853a09a924fa5c9f09845dae.jpg

Our special pass of coaster awesomness.

200703110272.jpg.c24ff0281e4b9617abf22ceed504e738.jpg

Robb showed up.

200703110273.jpg.8c7679c385c63f78b3e9b31d4fe60d16.jpg

I think this event had a better turn out than Solace this year.

200703110270.jpg.f1adcda4760589c3469b6b99d1616e0c.jpg

We had to get our stuff.

200703110268.jpg.7b99495eea323aeb639e31879abf329a.jpg

Yes, we made it back.

200703110266.jpg.edbac6a537ac85d69651e5b626a727a0.jpg

Is it me, or is the parking lot really far away from the entrance?

200703110265.jpg.8200e959b31bdfc1993184b130be1041.jpg

Its another early morning.

200703110262.jpg.b5b92bfd571bef7c7368010fedf15133.jpg

We were finally going to get our chance to ride X this morning.

Last Batch of Photos.

200703110341.jpg.58fc2dac9148320fffa44e1628bed38f.jpg

You know, I forgot to eat one of these. Oh well. That's the end of the pictures.

200703110339.jpg.57a6eea1cddc590e9b2de3575b5a3603.jpg

Critters in the Park.

200703110338.jpg.0531df1233450c0d7e2fa005bb58419e.jpg

SFMM actually spent money on theming for a coaster.

200703110337.jpg.9c60d6731ebe798cefddfe575aa6dabd.jpg

Yeah, I needed to experience the helix of doom from the back row. Yeah its very intense.

200703110333.jpg.1573f249dff84ac9b604612ade2e5a52.jpg

Should it say "PUPPET SHOW, and spinal tap"? Or is this the wrong sign?

200703110311.jpg.14c075205d468ca06fef9ea74211d1cb.jpg

We got to ride Ninja, it turned out to be one of the best in the park.

200703110332.jpg.215e4d40fc2b11f1ee24e3dea7d1ee44.jpg

Orient Express = Best Ride Ever.

200703110331.jpg.40091d9e148eb4bdd7595df360724f69.jpg

Yeah we pretty much invaded this place.

200703110330.jpg.520b144c353bfdfd32d9359a8aeb311f.jpg

Leanne got the SFMM happy meal

200703110329.jpg.408fd317adc9faa749abc3eff2aae1d3.jpg

Lunchtime!

200703110328.jpg.ce8168a46ed5fdbf8672d4522c14cca8.jpg

We already earned this credit last week.

200703110313.jpg.94bb3cee07e32b770ee87124050b0e37.jpg

The coaster shrine.

200703110308.jpg.3a43188e7ae48dd466b3afe79c55c987.jpg

Insane people showed up.

200703110307.jpg.5a1e2fd51057026c1fad0e395c9e9032.jpg

Due to high winds, the Sky Tower was closed.

200703110306.jpg.68f557bbb63b6549542f1f0b4c2585a3.jpg

Well, maybe later in the day.

200703110305.jpg.5da149adc7bc41490dbadf7ee07cf421.jpg

Maybe we will get lucky today.

200703110303.jpg.b7e67ffb8f3d1319744eb3bfd3d8ad17.jpg

Yes, another Superman credit for Leanne.

200703110302.jpg.7abce37201c955dd7b753589245322f6.jpg

Yes, we got Superman on this visit.

Awesome TR! That Mantis Man comment was so amazing. I swear, I was laughing for at least a minute.

 

Just a great TR in general, and it was so much fun to read, not just a few pretty photos, but an interesting story behind them.

Also sorry to read that you had a bad ride on Ghostrider, if you rode in the copper train then I really understand for such a crappy ride.

I dunno, I've ridden in both trains fairly recently and I found them both to have equal amounts of suckage.

 

If there was a "smoother" train, I certainly couldn't tell!

Great TR makes me want to go to California agian that much more. btw was I the only one who was reminded of the movie Vegas Vacation with the hoover dam pics?

 

Tour guide:I'm the dam guide take all the dam pictures you want. Now are there any dam questions?

 

Cousin Eddy: Where can I get some dam bait?

When did you last ride? The reason I ask is because the Ghostrider just came out of a rehab and a lot of the problem spots where re tracked.

I am glad that everyone has enjoyed this Photo: TR. It was really great to be able to hang out as well as meet quite a few of you this past week. I wish that we had more time to get to talk to all of you more, but it was just as insane weekend. I want to especially thank Rick and Gwen for showing us around SFMM, Chris and Natalie for showing us around Knott's, and for Robb and Elissa for inviting us out there in the first place. We really enjoyed the WCB event, it certainly was a major highlight on our trip. Thanks again Soren and Alessandra for putting up with us for 10 days. Other than our flight back, the trip went flawlessly. I will finish up by making a list and a short opinion of the 37 new coasters that we were able to ride on this trip:

 

Legoland

1. Coastersaurus: Pretty typical kiddie coaster with some really nice theming.

 

2. Technic Coaster: It's probably the best mouse coaster in California, it was quite a bit of fun.

 

3. Dragon: Probably my favorite Vekoma Skater. Its part dark ride as well as part coaster.

 

Castle Park:

4. Merlin's Revenge: A typical Vekoma skater that can get you soaked if you sit in the back rows.

 

Scandia:

5. Little Dipper Coaster: A kiddie Miller coaster, I like how it rolls back on to to chain lift.

 

6. Screamer: This thing was really, really scary.

 

SFMM

7. Revolution: I really wish that I got to ride this one in the old days. The restraints and trims kill the experience.

 

8. Canyon Blaster: Just a silly kiddie credit.

 

9. Goliath: I was surprised with this one. We eneded up liking it more than expected. The helix really is intense in the back row.

 

10. Batman: The Ride: These coasters are always great.

 

11. Colossus: Probably the best wood coaster of the trip, it was really running well that day.

 

12. Scream!: A typical B&M floorless coaster. It was fun, but nothing too special.

 

13. Riddler's Revenge: I finally found another standup coaster that I like (the other being Georgia Scorcher). We really liked this one, plus it has a unique layout.

 

14. Gold Rusher: A fun mine train coaster.

 

Disneyland/DCA

15. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad: While I like MK's version better, this was still fun. We only got to ride it at night.

 

16. California Screamin' Yeah, this is a great coaster. We all really enjoyed it.

 

17. Mullholland Drive: Typical Mouse coaster, nothing really special about it.

 

18. Space Mountain: Even though it was the Rockin' version, we found it to be quite fun. I still like MK's track layout better.

 

19. Matterhorn Fantasyland Side: This was fun, but we liked the Tomorrowland's side better.

 

20. Gadget's Go Coaster: My 150th credit, nothing really special.

 

21. Matterhorn Tomorrowland Side: The better of the two Matterhorn credits.

 

Primm/Las Vegas

 

22. Desperado: Great frist drop, but the rest of the coaster was not very good. Certainly a bit more bumpy than a steel coaster should be.

 

23. Canyon Blaster: Actually this Arrow was quite good. Great theming as well.

 

24. Speed: The Ride: Best coaster in Vegas.

 

25. Manhattan Express: Worst coaster of the trip, yes its really bad.

 

Knott's

 

26. Jaguar!: It was quite fun, it certainly has some length to it.

 

27. Montezooma's Revenge: We finally rode a Schwarzkopt Shuttle Loop. These things are a lot of fun.

 

28. Boomerang: Another Boomerang credit.

 

29. Xcelerator: I really liked this coaster, probably my favorite on the trip.

 

30. Timberline Twister: Not very good, even for a kiddie coaster.

 

31. Silver Bullet: It certainly has a unique layout. We kind of liked it, there are some forces in the last row.

 

32. Ghost Rider: We had a terrible ride on Ghost Rider, so we did not care much for it.

 

SFMM (Part 2)

33. Viper: We rode in the very front row so it was kind of fun.

 

34. X: We had 3 really great rides on this one, so yeah we liked it a lot. The first drop is insane.

 

35. Tatsu: By far the best flying coaster we have ridden, Leanne's brand new #1 coaster. We rode it three times.

 

36. Superman: Kinda fun, we got back-to-back rides on it.

 

37. Ninja: Great suspended coaster, certainly one of the best coasters in the park.
