So I was up in CA this weekend at Niagara Falls....in one of those arcade places on Clifton Hill, I ran across a little ride for little kids called Kiddie Coaster. For 2 Canadian quarters, you could "ride" the Blue Streak and the Gemini (CP). You sat in a little cart with a bar to brace yourself, and a TV screen right in front of you showed the footage. I'm small enough to fit in there, so I gave it a try...it was pretty cool, the little cart actually moved with the hills and everything!
It just struck me as weird that they'd have a ride like that up in CA! But I guess that just shows how awesome CP is! But why the Gemini and the Blue Streak? I looked for a year (copyright or something ) on the ride, thinking maybe those were the two newest rides at CP at the time the ride was made, but no luck.
Oh well, it was an unexpected pleasant surprise!
Check it out if you're anywhere near the falls.

They have a video game here on campus (University of Maryland) that has a moveing base to simulate movements and such. For $1 you can either play one of the 4 or so games that utilize the simulator base, OR you can sit back and "ride" Phoenix, Raven, or The Legend.
I have seen the one you're talking about though. The one I think I saw was at Potomic Mills in VA. Seemed really small for anyone reasonably large to ride. The one I saw could fit pretty much anyone of any size
If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.
