Looks like they painted the flyers.

"That was awesome," exclaimed Hector Oropeza, 13, of Charlotte after riding Phantom Flyers back-to-back. "I loved making it swing. It's so cool."

What a great ride those are. I regretfully only experienced them for the first time last year during BeastBuzz. Time for a trip to PCar!

My guess would be when they open a ride called the Bon-Bon Express.

Not much chance of a Peg Bundy ride at Paramount. It's a Sony show. However maybe a licensing agreement could be worked out and the parks start selling shoes as souvenirs or open the ultra exclusive No Ma'am Club.

Reading the fact that kids and adults alike love it makes me happy the ride continues to please.

I only hope that corperate gets the message of "Thats what was removed from PKI" and seriously considers at least adding a Larson or other available model in a Nick/HB addition or expansion.

Theres no critisism in this post, Only this persons view.

Chuck, who's decided to move on and hope for the future. IJST looks better than I thought it would be.
