I can't wait to use the Purell after riding this.

As time goes by I find myself more excited about this ride. I know its small and isnt gonna set the world on fire but for one I still haven't been to Sesame Place (for obvious reasons) and its really, really close to me - this finally gives me an excuse to get over there. On top of that I have never ridden a Gravity Group and I'm stoked its not such a tiny thing that I have to be embarrassed riding it. Also, my nephew, who will be 5 this year, will likely love this thing and I can't wait for him to ride it to see what he thinks. It's big for him, but not too big, as he's only done kiddie coasters and RMT @ GreatAdv. The cherry on top is that we got BGW Platinum Passes this year so it won't cost me anything to visit.

That's shaping up to be a nifty little coaster. Actually, It's much larger and more intense looking than I thought it would be for a kids' park. Cool.

That's a great shot of the layout. Some nice-looking curves that coaster has.
