Thanks! I figured it did, but haven't ever seen a schedule like the larger parks. Good to know the website has a warning if I ever visit at an off time.

Sounds like bad news is coming to the Orlando park as it seems like the Paratrooper is moving to the recently acquired Fun Junction USA.

But on the flipside, it appears it will be replaced by one of those inverting frisbees.

I just hope the paratrooper stays open in Orlando through March 9th.

Noooo, not the Paratrooper going. Love that ride at FS. Oh well, at least the replacement ride is going to be good. Love the inverting Frisbees. A good choice for a replacement.

Well now I won't get to ride it. I've never been on one. I should have when I had the armband back in September. Oh well. I guess I can go to the one in Kissimmee if I want to ride one (unless I end up at a fair with one).

Honestly, the one in Kissimmee is very good compared to most parks. This one was on another level though. It was also rim driven, and the rim driven Paratroopers that load 2 at a time are much better than their counterparts that come to the ground to load.

And it went backwards too!

Bummer to see it leaving the Orlando location but at least the Atlanta one is still fairly easy to get to. It's 10 minutes from the airport and the Miler coaster there has some terrifying airtime as well.

I got a zen ride on the Orlando Paratrooper a couple nights ago and I'm even more pissed now that it's leaving.

Also, I got my first rides on Mine Blower today and it's one of those "What in the holy hell just happened" kind of rides. A complete, balls to the wall insane ride with a lot of strong airtime that began to bruise my leg after marathoning it. Easily a top-5 woodie for me. So it's safe to say m mine has been blown.
