I loved this ride but I haven't heard of anyone who has ridden it other than me?

Several people on this site have written about the Comet (including me) - most love it. Try the search feature - several threads will come up.

The GE Comet started my love for coasters. It is still in my top 10 list. I try to get up to GE to ride it a couple times every season. So far, I've only been up there once this year and rode it 8 times that day. I was only there for a few hours. I hope they get some new ride(s) to renew my interest in the park.
68 coasters ridden (so far)of which 23 are wood and 45 are steel.

It has been quite a few years since I last rode the Great Escape Comet, but I do remember it being a fantastic coaster. It has a layout that is quite similar to that of the Knoebel's Phoenix, excapt it it taller, longer, and has no cross-overs.
Everyone must agree that this ride is great... it is constantly ranked amongst the top ten wooden coasters in the country by just about everyone who has ridden it!

I rode it three times in June and would love to know why everyone thinks it is so great - I thought it was okay, but the Phoenix and Riverside Cyclone are so much better.

That Coaster is awesome.
Just standing in line in that old station is fun!
The ride is fast for a woddy and you are almost always out of your seat.
I rode it like 5 times.
