Oh... if THAT counts...

How about this...

If I climb into an old clothes dryer, doubling my knees up around my ears, and close the door. Then someone hauls the clothes dryer up to the top of a tree with a winch and pulley. They then cut the rope and let the dryer fall to the ground, hitting every branch and limb on the way down and suddenly coming to an abrupt halt at the bottom with a bone jarring THUD!

Oh... wait...

sorry... that wasn't my imagination or pretending... that was just a memory of the last Chance Toboggan that I rode.

Wow... that almost makes a Chance Toboggan sound somewhat appealing!

I've done that too, but I kept the dryer attached via extention cords to a power supply so that it spun while I was inside falling...

Yeah, that sounds a lot like X- one of the most overrated coasters, IMHO. Funny how those years of development and the millions of dollars attached to them got Arrow a ride that's just as enjoyable as a Toboggan!

Powered rides ARE NOT coasters. That is a 3 credit penalty for you.

Pretty hefty, don't you think? Especially because it's only partially powered- the rotation was electric but the fall was gravity, all the way.

I agree the fine is high, but for someone with 15,000 credits, the fine must be high for him to learn respect for the rule of law.

Lord Gonchar's avatar That's ok, I just scored 7 more credits rolling around the house on my desk chair.

Wheeeee!!!!

You get 7 more if you follow the same route while spinning in the chair.

I can see it now. Next years internet coaster poll will have an honorable mention for Lord Gonchar's desk chair that would have been the number one new coaster if it had 3 more riders.

I hear The Bat was overrated and a maintenance nightmare. It is probably for the best that it is no longer a coaster and cannot be counted as a credit by anyone.

Better than Dragging Iron. Thats for sure!

Better invite us over so we can ride it and rate it next fall!

Now if we could include dreamed roller coaster rides, I'd be up over 1000 already. :)

ApolloAndy's avatar I'll come over and ride the desk chair, but then I'll complain that Mitch's is too complicated and won't vote anyway.

I wouldn't fault you. Deciding between the chair ride and the dryer in the tree ride would be pure hell.

Congrats PKI! Too bad it has to get repainted, I liked the old colors, and the old name too it was more original then "Hawk" this "Hawk" that at CF parks.

The chair ride has better scenery and runs year round, but it's a little less than thrilling. The dryer ride is much more thrilling, but a little rough and the trains are uncomfortable.

And you can change the chair ride's environment- thus increasing it's potential to be counted on track records multiple times- by messing around with the lighting and the arrangement of nearby furniture.
