P. 69 - EVERY house from HHN 31!

Recommended Posts

Beech Bend used to have a Christmas festival where they would run Kentucky Rumbler in the snow. I remember getting off that thing with icicles running from my eyes and nose, and snow in my hair. It was awesome! Riding coasters in harsh conditions have made for some of my most memorable rides. To this day, my favorite ride on X at Magic Mountain was in stinging rain. I got off the ride with my face beet red, and my hands numb. It was amazeballs!

^I rode the Big Bad Wolf while it was snowing once; thanks to being hit in the forehead by a steady stream of freezing water, I ended up with brain freeze.

^ I just love these things! My first one was at Astroworld (1992); then this one at NS (2007); and then the Dive Ultratwister at Rusutsu Park (2013).

 

They should build a few more of these in the world, yes? No?

That ride is shockingly fun--Togo actually scored there.

 

 

Good to hear as I had the "pleasure" of having (2) TOGO's at my home park of SFGA back in the day! Oh my!!!!

 

That said- the footprint/station is now home to one of the best woodies in the country!

That said- I give credit to SFGA for being a major risk taker on ride concepts back in the day.......

Yes, I agree that El Toro was a big step up.

Well, I don't see how that is possible. TOGO went bankrupt and closed in 2002.

I must say I love the mounted backseat POV's you have been putting up. First Dominator earlier this year, and now Lightning Run. You rarely see good high-quality backseat POV's, and it gives an interesting view of how the train moves throughout the ride.

I'm bringing this thread back! Pass the beers, everyone!

Loved Thunderhawk when i was at Dorney last, best 'classic' woodie I've been on.

Yeah, sorry, I've been forgetting to post the new videos in this thread. I'll be honest, when I get like THOUSANDS of comments on YouTube & Facebook (while, yes most of them make your brain melt) it's sort of hard to remember to post them in this thread too when you get like 0 to maybe 5 responses per video.

 

You gotta cater to your audience and unfortunately lately that's been growing more and more on social media.
