Well, this is probably if you have kids. I just discovered it on rcdb.com. These indoor entertainment complexes have a kiddie coaster in some of there locations. There are 2 in Illinois that have these coasters. Can anyone give some details if this place is worth going to? I have never heard of it until today. Jeff, it looks like more coasters can be added to the database with this.

Yeah, tons more if you include all these. Unless the Roller Coaster Data Base is not current, I noticed quite a bit of stuff in Texas alone which could be included in the listing. Sure would be cool to have em all.

i live in michigan and we have 2 jeepers here that i know of and they both hove a rollercoaster.they are for children .there kinda like a kiddie coaster at a carnival,like dragon wagon,but just a little longer,and a tad faster.an adult will not fit in this.overall its great for a birthday party,but not to go to to just ride rides.

hothitz, I wasnt planning on going for my own enjoyment. I have a 5 year old daughter that I would like to take there. Even though they are kiddie coasters they should also be included in the database just like the kiddiecoasters at big amusement parks.

Two Jeepers are within a half of a hour drive from my house. The kiddie coaster goes up comes down goes into the station. It is the same at every jeepers and it is a portable ride.

Chitown - What about some sort of compromise... How about just including the coasters that an adult can ride in for the data base. By this, I am also including the kiddie coasters which require a small child for an adult to ride (Although I think this rule is stupid. I say, as long as you can fit, you can ride). Otherwise, things could get rather out of hand. Just think how absurd it would be for some rink dink park to buy say 15 of these juvenile junior coasters (or even PKI could get a couple and put them in their video game building) and thus have the bragging rights of "the most coasters on the planet" or something just as equally ridiculous... for a season at least. :)

I only brought this up because rcdb.com recognizes these coasters. Actually there are amusement parks with portable coasters for adults that are in the database so when it comes down to it than it shouldnt make a difference.

It is kind of silly to argue over it either way, but they probably should be in the list of coasters because they ARE coasters, at least as much as kiddie coasters at regular parks.

Actually, there's one here in Kansas City at the Great Mall of the Great Plains. The coaster is called Python Pit and it packs quite a punch for a kiddie coaster. My 5 year old sister and I have gone out there a couple of times. For a kiddie coaster, I would recommend riding it.
It goes thru a tunnel and has several strobe lighting effects, etc. (At least the one here.)

There is one here near in the cahrlotte area at Concrod Mills which is a Mall about 10 miles from downtown Charlotte.The kiddy coaster they have at the one here is called Python pit, It was a good ride, but it cramped me up BAD, I am 5'7 and 16 years old, and my little sister who I had rode it had to help me walk back to where my mom was becuase my leg had cramped up during the ride...LOL.
