National Roller Coaster Day 2013

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.

National Roller Coaster Day 2013

Happy NRCD!!!

I've decided that rather than celebrating NRCD by re-riding the Arrow corkscrew at Calaway park here in Calgary, I'm going to go old school - REALLY old school. The predecessor to the modern coaster were the Russian Mountains in Russia and later France (still called 'Russian Mountains') where tracks were constructed and riders boarded wheeled sleds at the top of the hill and rode down to the bottom.
Since those don't really exist any more, I'm going to Calgary's Olympic Park and having a ride on a wheeled bobsled car down the Olympic bobsled run. Should be fun!
