Cool aerial photograph that Alabama Adventure posted just in case anybody wanted to see it. Pretty cool to see how the park has changed in recent years. Especially since 2018. 

The park does seem to be off to a great start attendance wise. Seems like every post on Facebook people talk about the crowds and the park recently announced they will be capping attendance on Saturda

^According to RCDB Rampage cost 4.3mil in 1998 or about $6.9 mil today adjusted for inflation.   I'll throw out my arbitrary "fingers crossed for a new gen Vekoma" post here..    One day it'll ha

Two things I noticed in the pictures.

 

1. "It also had numerous upgrades performed in the off-season." (Stratos-Fear)

 

Wheels?

 

2. The Claw marks on the Rampage T-Shirt.

 

It was more of a severe punch to the tailbone then a scratch.

 

I was really hoping to get out there again this year, but things just fell through. I think the park is looking great, and can't wait to see what happens for next year!

Stratos Fear Screamer had some extensive work done to....well, just about everything. Last season it would go down all the time and has gone down due to a mechanical reason 3 or so times this year up to this point, all lasting no more than 30 or so minutes (yes, only THREE or so times).

 

I'm working on a "in season changes" update that I hope to get up sometime this weekend or early next week. Here is a crappy cell phone pic of something that changed last week until I can get the pictures from my actual camera uploaded.

I was at the park this weekend and it was pretty busy and really hot! I had been to the park about 2 years ago and really liked Rampage a lot. This time though, while it was more fun than I remember it being and had more airtime, it was also extremely rough. It also felt really not maintained. There were times where it felt as if it was ripping off the track and there was one really bad pot hole after the second drop before the turn around that slammed my back pretty good both times I rode it. And yes, I did hold my back off the seat. The other thing that I saw were bad operations. The height limit for Rampage is 48". There was a train that went out with two little girls in it that could not have been more than 3 or 4 years old and definitely were NOT 48 inches. I was actually a little concerned that one of them would even make it back to the station. Obviously the two teens working the ride did not care about their safety. Both of the girls I am speaking of were smaller than KidTums and one of them was in the back seat by herself. There is no way that this was a safe ride for either of them. The ride ops need to be more careful about this as it could end up in a law suit for the park.

 

Other than that we had a great time and were there to celebrate my 34th birthday. Nothing can be better than riding coasters with your friends for your birthday!

"Dive into Malaria Lake: The Ride"

 

Edit: I thought Tidal Wave, but their swings already have that name. So what's famous in Alabama? I can only think of NASA. Yes, I thought of hillbillies too...sorry.
