Great Coasters Under 70 ft. tall

Wednesday, July 11, 2001 4:23 PM
In a world full of steel and more recently wooden behemoths standing at 180 ft. tall that fly through 7 in versions while standing up, hanging, flying, and doing other mind-numbing things, I think it would be nice to pay a bit of respect to those smaller rollercoasters, the ones that don't get as much attention, but in a lot of cases are a lot more entertaining than their larger brothers and sisters. What's your favorite smaller coaster? I'd have to say my three favorites are the Kennywood Racer, The Wild Mouse at Hersheypark, and the Blue Streak at Cedar Point.

Cyclops is an incredibly intense airtime filled ride, and I think it is under seventy feet tall. *** This post was edited by Valleyfan! on 7/11/2001. ***

I agree with the Belmont Giant Dipper. What a blast that ride is. Talk about laterals! I don't know about SCBB though, I've never been on that one.

Cornball Express. I heard that Leap the Dips at Lakemont is cool, and I imagine the Jack Rabbit at Seabreeze is cool.

Outlaw at Adventureland is great coaster under 70 feet. Its a combination CCI and GCI because Mike Boodley designed it while he still worked for CCI.

i would have to say the all the kennywood classic wooden coasters. Jack Rabbit for unbelieveable airtime on the double dip. Racer with those quick tight turns at the bottom of the drops. and Thunderbolt for its unique design and fun elements throughout the ride.

Okay, Kennywood's Racer is 72 feet tall. The Jack Rabbit is 70 feet tall and the Thunderbolt is 90 feet tall. So technically you can't call Kennywood's wooden coasters the best under 70 feet tall because none of them are.

Just thought I'd clear that up :).
