Ok, I might be reading your post wrong but, that is kinda what I'm saying...i think. They should have just kept it it's original colors, but no, they had to paint the supports yellow. Oh and I could care less what colors they are, I was just kidding around in the first post. Sorry if you took it to heart. :)

And somebody up there likes "bright" yellow! I think they took what was left over and smacked it on Thunderhawk at GL. For me anyway, it borders on just being an eyesore, like both coasters original colors better.
It seems ID's been down quite a bit this season. There's been at least two times this season that it was down periodically when we were there too. Personally, I would hope they keep it around though, (not that I believe it's going anywhere!). It's been a nice "first big coaster for my kids", and it's still a pretty decent suspended coaster.
Well it was just parked on the lift hill the whole time it was there...that was good that it started running though.
Actually Big Bad Wolf at BGW was my first "big coaster", so it does strike some memories. I wouldn't care too much if they removed ID , but it is a nice coaster for not big thrillers (or for after lunch).
BBW is still the best suspended I've ridden, and it was my daughters first big coaster. That 100' drop down to the river at the end still just rocks! We celebrated it by taking her to the BBW merch. stand and letting her go on a mini shopping spree. Good times!

SFMM's "Ninja" comes in a close second, followed by PKI's Top Gun and PCW's Vortex. As for the one at CP I've always heard it called "Draggin Iron". *** Edited 8/10/2006 1:15:13 AM UTC by Borntocoast***
I was just there last week and it was closed Thursday, but running only one train on Friday (unless all the trains are the same color, in which case, it was running extremely slow so that it seemed like they were running only one train). I kinda wanted to ride it for old time sakes, but I didn't feel like waiting 30 minutes for it. Oh yeah, also looked like the chain was disconnected on Thursday, maybe they were replacing it (which wouldn't make since seeing as how one of the trains was parked at the top of the hill)?
