Ride of Steel's avatar Actually from what i remember the only ride with an on ride photo is the log flume! To tell you the truth the park isn't all that special, except for one thing, the only thing i visit it for: The Comet. My #1 woodie. Great airtime, speed, laterals, and since its really smooth it flies through the track. Its like a bigger version of Blue Streak at CP. Blue Streak providing the same features just really short.

My wife and I were there this past weekend. I submitted a trip report about it that you might want to check out.

I think it's worth a trip up there. The park isn't real big, not many coasters. I truly enjoy riding the Comet. It's a coaster with a lot of history. The Comet has an on-ride photo. However, when we were there on Saturday the on-ride photo was only working for about half the seats on the ride. Not sure what the problem was.

But hey, the parking is FREE!

I just wrote a HUGE thing about the Great Escape and my password was wrong so everything got deleted. I wrote about all the coasters and what they were like. I'll try it again later. This is my home park and I actually went today! Anyway, beatiful park, free parking, not so great rides and not so great coasters. COMET RULES!!!

Nightmare: 1999 indoor coaster(smooth, slow lines)

Boomerang: 1997 typical boomerang(slow lines)

Stemin Demon: 80's arrow corscrew coaster (short, one train, slow lines)

Alpine Bobsled: 1998 intamin bobsled coaster (slow lines, doesn't run in rain or dark)

Comet: 1994 double out and back wooden coaster. (awsome airtime, 15 drops, watch out for lateral g's! :-)

I'll be on later tonight if you want to know more about other rides. Just let me know. If you wanna see pics of these rides go to
