So we decided to do a Mega coaster trip in the south and Pennsylvania last week. On our way down, we decided to hit up Camden park in West Virginia. This out of the way park is definitely unique.
The park consists of a classic wooden coaster, wooden kiddie coaster, log flume, and a classic dark ride. On top of that,the park also has a decent collection of flat rides. The park had a decent crowd on the Friday that we visited, and seemed to be doing well. The park has a classic whip ride that has to be the best I have been on. The one ride I did not see there was the hellcat. Not sure if it's gone, or we just missed it somehow.
The park is not very big, and only took us about 1.5 hours to get thru. The one thing that kind of made me look twice was the lack of fencing around the log flume ride. You could step right into the flume.
The wooden coasters were fun, and the dark ride was as well. I just love to little touches that a small park has over the large corporate parks and camden does not disappoint.
I would recommend checking out this fun little park on your way down south. Now onto the pictures.......
Here we are!
This is the main entrance.
This park has lots of classic rides.
The classic haunted house
It even has a coaster element to it. Does this count as a credit?
The ride has Universal studio quality props.
This is the parks main attraction.
The coaster has a weird layout with only a few big drops.
Classic rolling stock
Front of train
Looking from the station to the lift
It looks like they are taking good care of the coaster, as many parts looked like new.
I could stick my hand out and actually touch the track if I wanted
The sun did not want to let me get a good shot of the ride.
The coaster also sports a nice tunnel
Classic breaking system
Gotta love the engineering that went into it.
The park has several classic flat rides
This ride was the whip
classic everything about this ride
A peek over a fence reveals a octopus ride all covered up. Not sure if this is a new ride not set up yet, or an old ride.
I love the classic attractions this park has
My son loved this ride.
The little dipper is the parks kiddie coaster, and my sons very first rollercoaster ever
The open space that was fenced off is where the Spider was. It had an accident where one of the "legs" broke, which is actually a reoccurring problem, so that's why you saw it covered up backstage somewhere. Shame, it was one of the best Spiders I ever rode. I assume the bumper cars are still gone? (they were located next to the Whip) They burnt down a few years ago.
The Hot Cat was a caterpillar with no canvas and a roof over it. There was also one an Eli 16 Wheel, but both of those were removed for the "Rattler"
