What do you think the best upcharge attraction is out of a skycoaster, zamprela turbo force and zamprela sling shot??? I think that the sling shot is by far the best with turbo force right behind it. I went on both of these this weekend at great adventure, and i thought they were both better then nitro!!!!

I dont ride upcharge attractions for one reason: I have to buy the parks overpriced food and drinks, so why should I have to pay to ride a ride? I have never gotten this.

I see both sides. I hate having to pay extra when I already paid admission and parking. But some attractions have rotten capacity. Also, it's a quick, cheap thing to put up that you can contract to run and maintain. They also take up very little space. But yah, I'd much rather have a new coaster than a couple upcharge rides.
With 1 exception: a Skyscraper. I'd definitely pay extra to go on that.

The only one I've gone on is a Skycoaster (Ripcord at CP), and while it's a great thrill and a terrifying experience, I don't care for paying the extra charges either. When I did go on Ripcord, I was an employee and had all the regular CP stuff for free daily anyway, so it didn't seem like a big deal. Personally, I'd rather get my money's worth from the park itself, even though they are great rides, and definately an interesting experience!
