Cedar Point coasters at a mall near you

Saturday, May 17, 2003 5:12 PM
Well now I have seen everything. For the sum of $1.00 your kids, or about 1 and 1/2 adults, can go on a ride called "Kiddie Coaster". It's a motion simulator with a monitor that has a choice of either riding Gemini or Corkscrew. I've only seen 1 of these things. It's in Chicago Ridge Mall, 15 minutes south of Chicago.

Ive seen one at wildwood, with all of the coasters (with the exceptions of TTD & WT). Pretty neat actually, I enjoyed it.

Those have been around for a while, haven't they? At least a year or two. There's been one in the Lehigh Valley mall since we moved to Allentown - that was November of 2001. It only features like 6 of the coasters.

They have one at a Laser Tag place near me. It's two bucks for Meanstreak, Magnum, Gemini, Corkscrew, and Mantis. Then the thing moves around a little bit. I think I went on it once and then I just went to the back and grabbed on.

It doesn't come anywhere near any of them, of course.

I noticed the one at Berkshire Mall, Wyomissing, PA a little over a year ago. How ridiculous would it look if a 28 year old guy climbed into one? Of course, now that I lost about 70 pounds since I first saw it, maybe it won't look as bad:).

One of these machines (featuring Mantis, Magnum, Mean Streak, etc...) was at Scandia Park waaaay out in California when we visited in March.

It was kinda weird.

There are 2 versions of this ride: a full-size 2-seater, and the smaller kiddie version. The full-size is no longer made due to the manufacturer going out of business (poor design led to constant problems with the ride). The kiddie version was picked up by a different company (ICE-Innovative Concepts in Entertainment, for those of you keeping score)and was redesigned to supposedly be more reliable.

All the company would have to do is change the films to X and Deja Vu. Then when the simulator would breakdown it would be like the real rides! :)

Signature will be closed today. Sorry for the inconveinance.

on the dover ferry, there is a huge one (i'm guessing the older one), and it had most of the coasters (3 or 4 years ago...), the bad thing about it though was that didn't syncronise the ride, it just bumped you when ever.

Yes, there is one in Maplewood Mall in Minnesota and I think they may have Millenium Force, not sure though. I never actually spent time looking at it so its sort of a guess.

Yep, D&B in Columbus has this one.

I rode a simulator of the Beast in Pigeon Forge, TN, once. The coolest thing was, the video was so old that the Bat was still there.
