I'm going to Panama City in about 5 days and I was wondering If Miracle Strip was worthit? I went a long time ago but I do not remember it. Is their Coaster anygood? Also any info on things to do in the Panama Area would be great! THANKS!!

Looks like they only have one coaster, a 76 foot drop, 55 mph, John Allen designed, PTC woodie.

Check out the Roller Coaster Database:

I just discovered this site today and it has already been an invaluable resource !

I've been to that park, but back in the mid-80's. Not sure if they've added much since then, but it seemed like a fun couple of hours. Have fun!

You could see the coaster from our hotel last year when we vacationed there. However, the park was not open during the week when we were there so I didn't get to experience it. It looks pretty cool though. Eat at Hooters and Sharkey's (I think it was the name). Panama City is a very nice beach and you will have a good time. You might want to check when the park opens (unless you will go on a weekend), because it might not be open this early during the week.

I also saw that they have (or had) an Eyerly Loop-O-Plane. If that ride is operating please ride it. It is a very intense pendulum ride. Possible the best Whirl-N-Hurl built in the 1930s'-1960's

I'll be down in Panama City shortly, and if you're the partying type, *definitely* check out Spinnaker's Beach Club (one of the hottest clubs around) and Noah's Rain (another phat night spot).

As for parks well, this is a road trip I'm doing with friends, so I don't believe I'll be hitting any coasters
this time around. However, from everything I've read, Miracle Strip is a really cool park, especially
at night, with some great classic rides.

Have Fun!
