Love the fact that more of you are getting on board with this thread!

 

Keep 'em coming!

Still there, but with a worse name. ;-)

 

Even though Medusa didn't fit in with the western themed area, I still preferred that theme over Bizarro.

Medusa was Michael's first ever front row seat on a coaster!

 

He told me to tell him where the camera was so that he could open his eyes long and go hand's free just long enough for the photo - which he did.

 

Then he closed them tight for the rest of the ride. LOL

I am enjoying this thread quite a bit so far and I am glad it was revived! Below are a couple of photos of the now defunct Thunder Rapids Log Flume at Darien Lake. During my first visit to the park on August 31st, 2017 it was already standing but not operating and waiting demolition for the all new for 2018 Tantrum.

That is all I have for now, but I will look for and upload other photos of rides that I had captured which are no longer with us.

All I got is this one. But it was a goodie, while it was running.

 

WILD MOUSE!

 

(with the silent "e")

Time for a thread bump...how about some Dueling Dragons from IoA?

Dueling Dragon's before they dumbed it down, American Style.

I LOVED the trains!

Which one was your favorite?

127669300_Florida_2010729.jpg.7ae54c99bbb4a0799217d0a561e85bc3.jpg

I liked both, but I think that I preferred Ice Dragon

Loved the little bit of airtime you would get here on Fire Dragon - weeeee!!!!

Such a great concept - sure would like to see this pop up at a park (outside the US) where they could be reborn and duel the way that they were intended to!

We only rode Speed The Ride once, but we loved it!

A shame that they never relocated it as it pretty much crapped all over the other coasters in Vegas.

This may or may not be a shameless plug for where I work. lol

 

This was in the NASCAR museum that you needed to walk through to get to the coaster.

Just went through my photos from past trips and picked a few random rides.
