Flashback Or Black Widow

Sunday, February 17, 2002 1:13 PM
Was it a good move to remove black widow for flashback.  I have never ridden black widow and was wondering if you thought it was a good idea replacing it.

I've have ridden both. I definatly think it was a good decision to remove it for Flashback. The ride could be rough and down-time was horrible. Almost the whole '99 season it was down. I think Flashback was also a good decision because it was something new to ride. What good is a huge chunk of medal taking up valuable ride space? Check out RCDB to see where it is now. Very amusing. Don't worry fellas, you didn't miss out on much.

I don't know...I have never ridden flashback but I have ridden boomerang at GE. I have fond memories have crying down the long stairs of Black Widow with my brother and father. That was the good old days before I realized what fun coasters are. I must say that I was not surprised about them replacing it with Flashback. Does anyone have any old Riverside Pics?

I protest!. If they were that bad then Fun Spot, Frontier City and Elitchs wouldn't have theirs. That link doesn't work.

Me too! Arrow shuttles are much more fun than Boomerangs.

Why couldnt they just leave it?  It took up no room at all.

Add me to the list of protestors.  Elitch's Sidewinder is my best friend, best ride friend that is.

You know I was thinking the same thing; that it took up no room. But, keep in mind it only ran like twice in '99. It was a waste of whatever space it took up. The link should work.

I liked it because it was the first backwards loop I've ever been through.  I think it should've stayed because of the backwards launch.  That was cool.  They should've kept it and added Flashback too.  I've never ridden a Boomerang before until this one.  Plus, there is only one more Boomerang in New England and that's at Lake Compounce.  They should've kept Black Widow and added Flashback.
