So far my only in-house-built coaster credit is Viper at SFGAm. I believe it was Six Flags' only in-house coaster, and they did a good job with it because it's a very fun coaster with lots of floater air. I guess it really depends on who and how it is made because Flying Turns at Knoebels took forever to get opened. I guess my opinion is that if they can make it a good ride, then I approve of it.

It's a delicate task, that's for sure.

Lagoon did it really well with Bombora though.

It's smooth, has comfortable restraints, fast dispatch times, and it's just a hell of a whole lot of fun. I wish parks would get this instead of Vekoma roller skaters.

Not to mention the Flooded Mine (both parks), the waterboggins (both parks), Grandfather's Mansion/Inventor's Mansion, and past attractions such as the Gandy Dancer and Rube Dugin's Diving Bell at SDC. I'm sure I'm forgetting a number of attractions as well. I know both parks used to have lots of play structures and little side-attractions that were custom as well. The Silver Dollar City Company used to almost be seen as the Disney of the Midwest... Lots of interesting stories behind that era.

The park technically wasn't Silver Dollar City yet, but the cable train in Marvel Cave was also designed and built in-house.

How about this entire park?

There was even an entire made about the park, its creator, and its history... A seriously good watch, but it doesn't really show much of the park itself...

Here's a POV of the parks house-built shuttle coaster...
Coaster Count- 113 Wood- 23 Steel- 90
Top 5 Steel- Diamondback, Bizarro, I305, Montu, Apollo's Chariot
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Racer, Beast, Grizzly (KD), Swamp Fox (FK), Wildcat (HP)

If Fury 325 ends up being on the same level as Diamondback it may just kill me...

Yummy! I just ate donkey!

Tornado and Teddy Bear at Stricker's Grove were built by Ralph Stricker but he didn't design them. He used blueprints from the 1935 Teddy Bear at Coney Island in Cincy and Tornado was from Comet at Rocky Glen Park(rcdb.com)

Adventure island in britain did an amazing job with the time machine:


They've made some of their other rides themselves as well

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Check out the first post, it was seeing how much Adventure Island made themselves that made me start this thread. ;)
