Comparison of Lesourdsville's Screechin' Eagle

Post by dare-to-fly » Wed Oct 24, 2007 12:12 pm

I was just thinking about something. Since we can't fly the Screechin' Eagle at present, here is a thinking question.

What operating coaster in existence would compare? So far, I've gotten reasonable matches from The Starliner @ Cypress Gardens, Blue Streak @ Cedar Point, and Big Dipper @ Geauga Lake. What other coasters would be closer?

I'd have to go with the dipper at GL but unfortunately I think it's going to follow the same course as the SE.

Have Fun

Are there any others? I'm not asking which of mine, I'm curious to know if there are any better substitutes out there.

I would have to agree. I found the Big Dipper to be a really close comparison. I hope you are incorrect on its future, but I fear it too!
