SCREAM with me... in 2003!
It's worth the 45 min.-1 hour drive to get there. There's another credit there, BTW, a dinky little kiddie coaster called the "Little Screamer".
If you do head out to Scandia, be aware that there are two more credits in the neighborhood at Castle Park, a neat little oddity about 10 minutes away in Riverside. The coasters are both junior/kiddie, but the park also features a nice Double Shot, a Sally dark ride, an odd flume with a nice drop, a bunch of flats, and some very old rides that used to be at Knotts years and years ago. Worth a look, IMO.

Going to the coaster solace I was thinking about riding the Screamer, it likes like fun, I hear it has some kick butt airtime because of the abrut drops and tops. Is this true, where is the best to ride?
I have ridden it a few times when I am in the area. It never ceases to freak me out. After I took my first ride on it at night in 2000, I thought it was the scariest steel coaster I had ridden.
While I have heard they braked a section of track before the final "death turn", I don't think it will make that big of a difference as there are many freaky aspects about that ride.
Sean's absolutely right about the night rides on the Screamer (I should know, I was riding with him). Definitely one of the freakiest experiences I've ever had on a ride. If you like headchoppers, this is your ride.
Don't forget about the honking jets flying in Ontario, now.
Pity about the final turn, eh Sean?? :)

Which reminds me... I'm missing some coasters on my count in the Inland Empire... :D
