I noticed Adventureland was open last Wednesday, which I thought was odd, so I drove down hoping for light crowds and lots of Turbulence rides. It was my first visit to the park. Unfortunately, I failed to realize schools were out for the day, so the park was quite busy. Traffic, however, was not bad at all.

Neither the Ferris Wheel nor dark ride were open to single riders. The log flume was closed until mid-afternoon, and the family coaster had too long of a line to be worth the wait. Otherwise, I got in all the adult rides. Their Huss Frisbee runs a long, intense program. Actually, all the flats had very generous cycles.

Turbulence is a blast. I enjoyed it so much more than anticipated. The first drop and the first hill afterwards are especially awesome, but the whole course really keeps you smiling. It didn't even feel "too short" even though it is actually over quite quickly.

Sweet report. Love the makeagifs.

Too bad I don't know you; I was sitting in my office across the street from the park while you were there.

Adventureland is really a nice hidden gem that many enthusiasts ignore, but it's worth a visit. Thanks for the report.

Thanks for the TR. Turbulence seems to be the forgotten new ride of 2015 and it looks like a great ride for its size. I really like the logo.

I wanted to bring my nephews here this Summer, but I totally forgot they added Turbulence and I brought them to Hershey instead. Oh well, there's always next year. Nice photos, ejot.

It's a fun ride for Adventureland (better than the SBF Visa spinners), but no reason for it to be mentioned in the same breathe as new coasters at other parks. Especially since so many spinners were added this year.

Are the Legoland parks the only other place I can ride one of those water whip rides?

I actually think they’re replacing the water whip with a new one, but I didn’t know about the Lady Bug Coaster.

In the US, yes? I believe there is still one at Bakken, but that may be it.
