I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life... Home park: Six Flags America Favorite park overall: All Walt Disney World Parks Favorite Steels: Maverick, Millennium Force, Sky Rush, Talon, Poltergeist, I-305 Favorite Woodies: Iron Rattler, Phoenix, Roar, El Toro, Jack Rabbit, Thunderbolt, The Raven, The Legend TPR Trips: Northeast 2011, LeviaTHON 2012
I really like Worlds of Fun, especially at night. I love Mamba and Prowler. Prowler is the most intense GCI I've ever experienced, and possibly one of the most intense woodies I've ridden overall. I also enjoyed Timber Wolf. It has some great airtime and a nice layout, but unfortunately it's disturbingly rough. Riding defensively is a must, although that doesn't change how I rate it.
After visiting Six Flags St. Louis, Silver Dollar City, and Worlds of Fun, the last park I would visit on this trip would be Adventureland. I gotta say it was a pretty nice park, I wouldn't call it amazing or worth coming back to unless they got something new. I did get my 200th credit on the Dragon! I found it very intense and the ending has got to be one of the best coaster endings ever. The park's layout is also easy to navigate through (except the island with the rapids) and has a new water park included with admission. Also, does anyone know why we have to double up on Rainbows? The one at Six Flags St. Louis and Adventureland, the ride ops made us double up... thanks!
Here are my roller coaster reviews....
Tornado: It was actually a really fun wooden roller coaster! The out and back layout was implemented well but the layout did seem a little short (didn't bother me...) and wasn't too rough. Oh yeah, no station gates!
Dragon: This was my 200th credit! And it was definitely the best coaster in the park! The prelift was a little bad, but the drop, loops, and ending helices were totally awesome. I could care less who built the ride, it has a well designed layout which makes for a totally kick A$$ ride.
The Underground: I definitely didn't see it as good as Fire in the Hole, but for Adventureland, it was a great indoor coaster. If you wat to experience the scenery to the fullest, sit in the front.
Outlaw: The only let down of the park. I thought it would be a Gwazi sort of coaster, not really. It was a little slow, and the layout didn't give off much (no airtime...)
Adventureland has one of these dandy chairlifts that soar into the middle of trees.
Tornado is a fairly fun sized out and back woodie, but still has a unique layout.
Sadly, not too much airtime.
Turnaround didn't have a lot of shuffling.
This picture reminds me of all the abandoned woodies out there, rotting away.
The park isn't huge, so you can see Tornado pretty much anywhere around the park.
I think this ride is called Gaunlet, but I didn't care enough to ride it...
Sawmill Splash was pretty bad. Lots of spinning during the helices, and the splash was pretty small...
Outllaw has a great atmosphere, the ride itself, not so much.
No, it wasn't shaky...
This does remind me of a GCI woodie with PTC trains...
Nope, Not a lot of laterals here...
The rapids were a little lame, but still worth riding.
I was just happy the water wasn't brown.
The Underground: An above ground indoor roller coaster.
I love these space shots!
There it goes!!!
Didn't ride, but trust me, this park has a ferris wheel.
The paratrooper at Indiana Beach is better. It doesn't have a big slant either...
The train is pretty cool though.
This would be the Dragon!
The park is very well kept, and it beautiful for taking pictures like these...
Believe it or not, this was the worst part of the ride.
Very, very fun!
This shot turned out really nice.
There was a fire here. I feel like they should keep it open like this because if they built it back with buildings, it will be all cramped up again...
This dude needs a girlfriend.
The only log flume where you get the most wet on the little predrop.
I think I've grown onto riding log flumes.
Oh man, Break Bances are so fun! The only other one I remember riding was the only at Six Flags New England back in 2004, but I was told it was removed...
This year new to Adventureland was the water park! I only had a chance to ride two slides though.
If you wanted to wait an hour for slides that aren't that special, then you should ride one of these!
I rode the Orange and Yellow slide. It was terrible, they installed speed bumps on the ride and it was quite uncomfortable... I thought they would be better.
Last picture... An alright slide. The bigger tornadoes are better...
Whenever I go to Colorado I pass by Adventureland, but i've never actually stopped to go there. Thanks for showing us what the park is like! It's a bummer that those slides are "trimmed", they look like a a lot of fun.
