Guess The Ghetto Coaster

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Guess The Ghetto Coaster

Post by Paul Drabek » Thu Jul 14, 2011 8:26 am

Ok, this is a new edition of Guess The Coaster. The rules are the same as in the previous versions. There is a photo of a coaster posted. Guess what it is. If you guess correct you have to post the next one. Also no photoshopping of the images (cropping is ok). The change in this edition is the coaster gas to be "ghetto" or pretty much run down or trashed (except for all Vekoma products or Chance Toboggans which were ghetto the second they opened).

So guess this ghetto coaster.

Any guesses? It's a pretty freaky run down ride.

Wow, dunno what it is, but I know that if I rode it I would probably be thinking "Am I gonna die on this thing?" the whole time lol

Ding Woodpecker got it. It's Cyber Space that ran at Grove Lund in Wales.

Ok, your turn to post one.

Have Fun

That's the best Wild Mouse ever at Idlewild! (Unless this picture of it is at it's previous location in the UK, which I don't remember where that was.)

This is more of an example of how something got de-ghettoed. The ghetto potential here was tremendous, but they really worked it out.

Illinois Mike wins as the result of a PM.

It is Dinosaur Canyon at Deadwood, smack in the middle of nowhere, North Carolina.

This really isn't ghetto, I'm just curious to see if anyone knows what this one is.

That coaster looks familiar but I'm not sure what it is. My gut says it's a John Allen design.

Hopefully that helps.

Have Fun
