Sadly, the Mack powered Thunder Run at PCW .... was a "ok one last one for the night plezzzzzeeee" ride. If you do not count powered coasters, then the Fly (Mack custom wild mouse) was the last one. That was fun because my nieces and their friends were in the car ahead of me, and I got to watch them...

Well.. it might only be a year old, but......

Voyage is a wild ride, and, as such, is going to get battered in places. Retracking is common on woodies.

I have no clue what crawled up their rear ends and nested there to make them treat other enthusiasts the way they do. Paul, coming from another Paul, you run a great s...

Loved the update today!

Your photo essay is making me look forward to the Coastercon stopover at Stricker's next June.

As for SFOG, that one will likely have to wait for the 2008 coastercon for me.
