If A Theme Park Ride Or Rollercoaster Could Talk

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.

I would have agreed before the Coasting For Kids @ Michigan's Adventure. Thunderhawk was a fun non banging ride. i did 37 and Draven did 35. For a vekoma, not too bad.

And I KNOW I am in the vast minority here, but I thought a ride on Boomerang! @ WoF was a fun ride. Not painful or nothing. I probably wouldn't marathon the thing but I'll try Boomerang at SFStL as well.

I agree with TC10k, no OTSR's on boomerangs would be a fun gimmick that would give them more life.

Not just a fun gimmick, but it was almost like a brand new kind of coaster. It was ridiculously fun.

ALSO, that one in Vienna has a tunnel between the cobra roll and the vertical loop. You come out of the second half of the cobra and just as you reach the vertical track, you enter the tunnel. It's pretty cool.
