Re: What's Your Coaster Count?

Huh, if I count Demon Drop and Free Fall as coasters then I'm at 101 and that would make Tidal Wave at Trimpers my 100th coaster, not going to do that. I'm still at 99. Number 100 would have been Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood except for my wife getting ticked off late in the day and my first ever r...

Re: I HATE Line Jumpers

Back to the original topic here, line jumping is a major pet peeve of mine, but half the time I'm afraid to say something due to the fact that I'm usually outnumbered, and in this day and age things can get ugly quick. Last year at Dorney Park if there was a line that was 5 minutes long or more, you...

Re: Is it too early for Christmas music?

Well, I now have a second job at Sears to help make ends meet, and I can tell you this much, I USED to love Christmas music. I showed up for work on Sunday morning November 2nd at 6:00AM, and the in store music had changed to ALL Christmas ALL the time. I'm up to 25 hours a week right now and I can ...

Thanks Paul, I found both of them. Wow! An old concrete slide, I'm not even sure I have ever been down a concrete one. I have been on a concrete INNER TUBE slide but not a concrete mat slide, ouch! I found other references to Wet Willy's doing a Google search. Someone mentions a kid that died, simil...

Parking? Well then maybe you can answer a burning question I have had for years. WHY do they NOT park anyone in the first five or six rows in the eastern lot? Not that I'm complaining. I will admit that I usually ignore the lot attendants and shoot up the lanes on the far east of the parking lot and...

Where exactly was it Paul? I love using local.live.com to view aerial shots of these old places and it looks like I can get a good view via Birds Eye in the Fenton area but I need some street names! :) Also, where was the old one that you used to go to when you were younger? I'd like to do some aeri...

Ahh, reminds me of the great Northeast Blackout of 2003. I work at a one branch bank and it happened right when we were trying to do our final balancing of the day and go home. After about 15 minutes I went out to my car and turned on the radio and discovered that a good chunk of the northeast was w...

Going to Waldameer on Sunday

Ok, I know there's one or two Waldameer employees around here, I will be at the park this Sunday, Fathers Day, with my family plus grandma and grandpa. I'm just wondering where I can find you at either before or after I enjoy adding Ravine Flyer II as my 99th roller coaster. :)

You were already at the right place for that information. If you check the facts page for each coaster on RCDB it will tell you if and where it was relocated. The upper one was relocated to Six Flags America and named Python where it ran through 1998 and is now in storage. The lower one was relocate...

I've seen floating chains before, always on WIldcat style rides. What park is this ride located at? I searched "Dancing Queen" at RCDB and got nothing.
