PHOTO TR:Mega Mid America trip report.


Recommended Posts

Great trip report! I'm hitting many of the same parks next month - your photos are fun as well as a big help. Thanks!

 

A couple of questions about WOF. Is that spinner a Tony Hawk / Pandemonium clone or a custom installation?

 

The invert is fairly recent. You compare it to Talon (loved it). Where does it fall on the B&M scale? Hopefully it doesn't completely lack intensity a la Silver Bullet (which I also like although it' s no Batman).

^ I think the layout of the tony hawk, and dragon coaster are slightly different but not by much. Either way, they are both fun.

 

The invert was fun, but not as intense as others I have been on. I would have to rank it in between silver bullet and talon. It just seemed to be slower and the inversions were far apart. Still a fun ride, just not my favorite invert.

One of the mazes was just sitting there. It looked like you could just walk right in.

At this park they are cheese bites. At other parks, they are cheese curds.

You can tell that this is a cedarfair owned park.

Yea, $5 is crazy.

 

Thank you.

 

I would do it for a dollar if I was soaked but not more than that. If they charged $1 for those things instead of $5 I bet they would get more than 5x the usage and they would make more revenue that way. Did you see anyone use that thing?
