Lap bars!? Yes please! That sounds awesome, I need to get myself on a KMG of some sort soon...
Hopefully I will make it to Fright Nights
As an actual contribution, I think my favorite high-intensity flat recently was the Fabbri Evolution at The Fair... they ran it really slow and it's ugly but an extra bonus was that the first time I rode it, a maintenance worker was up on the platform greasing the main bearing while we were riding it
There was a man on that catwalk while we were riding it (not my photo)
Okay, so this is actually my first post in a long time, but I figured this thread might be the best place to ask.
I've been trying for quite some time now to find out more about a flat ride that was featured in an old VHS tape I used to have called Awesome Rides. If memory serves me correctly, the ride was called the Tumbler, and it looked absolutely bizarre. Here's a clip of the beginning of the video that I found on YouTube (the ride in question appears briefly at the 1:16 mark):

What the hell is that?... It looks amazing
Is it the new enterprise model Huss was advertising a while back? ^^As for KMGs, definetly try to make it out to ride one! the one in the pic with the lap bars looks amazing, but as said a few posts back, even the smaller "Freakout" models can be crazy fun with a good long cycle. Once rode a freakout at a fair where we were given a 5 minute long cycle... One of the most fun experiences I've had in a ride.

I love the Huss Flyaways, like Nightwing that used to be at SFNE, or a good old Tilt-A-Whirl. Tilt-A-Whirl's are so much fun, I can't even describe it. It's so much fun and it makes me laugh like a school kid the entire time. Same goes for Tea-Cups.
I do still love an Enterprise. Paratroopers, Calypso, Space Rollers. Also Shake/Magnum, and I always manage to have a good time on Storm.
Scat is also more intense than it looks.
Fighter has a good "whip" effect.
I've only been on it once, but I never forgot my ride on High Roller:
There is a carnival that is in the middle of refurbishing perhaps the most legendary flat ride of all time: the Chance Turbo. Would love to finally get on one of these! Unbelievable to think that Belmont Park in San Diego had one of these operating.
