What was crazy quilts new name? ), SeaStorm (Raging Seas )(back when they manually controlled the spinning direction not the crappy automatic version) and NIGHTMARE @ Phantom Cave were all great rides. I thought Nightmare was dumb as a kid (or maybe the 6 hour wait tainted my opinion) but if it were still at the park today I think I'd feel positively of it.

Pray for the light of day.


Rodeo RoundUp was Corn Popper's other name. Crazy Quilt was removed when they built the Emporium and they moved Lasso there. Crazy Quilt's cars made a Halloween appearance about 10 yrs ago.

I miss Carnvile(?), it was cool that they brought defunct ride cars/pieces out, it was nostalgic.

^ I used to love the old vibe that Fright Fest had leading up to the event. Like how they had the Fright Night Field Trip busses scattered throughout the park playing the random Halloween sounds and adding to the atmosphere in late August. I wonder if they’ll do anything similar to that in the weeks leading up to the event this year - but I’m not gonna be holding out for anything. Only time will tell what they accomplish this time around

I'll start by saying that my pick is a tie between UFO and Twister.


RANGER!!!!

Anyone who knows me in real life would probably automatically know who I am; from just that.

^ this is true. However I was referring to the nostalgia of the Fright Night Field Trip busses specifically. I don’t believe there was any large haunt experience like that last year and also as a result no large set pieces scattered throughout the park to advertise it.

There was signage in the areas that had scare zones and mazes but not much else. And that’s fine because they only had 3 months and what I’d assume was a pretty limited budget to get that event up and running. Now that they’ll have a full year, I’m hopeful (and I know others are too) that this year’s Fright Fest will be better and hopefully continue to improve.

Still no word on Holiday in the Park, but I’d assume if that were to be a thing, we’d find out in August with all the other new stuff Six Flags announces all at once.

Since most of my favorite rides are still at Darien Lake like Viper, Scrambler, Superman, and Tornado, I do some favorite Darien Lake rides that are gone as well. The defunct rides that I've rode will be in bold lettering.

* Raging Seas
* 'Cuda Falls
* Floodgate Falls
* Rainbow Mountain (Cuda's predecessor)
* Cascade Canyon
* Crazy Quilt
* UFO
* Ranger
* Nightmare at Phantom Cave.
Nobody knows a lot about Darien Lake like me! ;)

Did my donkey title just change???

I think maybe the submarine ride in kiddie land, but I'm not sure.
