....Camp Snoopy actualy has a ride that is fun. i could not beleve it when i got off and i actualy had enjoyed Timberland Twister, It has some thing to it that nothing else at CS has,it fits. it is just tame enough for the 75 year old lady in front of me and just wild enough for die-hard coaster fan like me. there were only about fifty people in the park to start with, so i got 8 rides off before i decided to head home. i think this may be the big surprise coaster of the year.

I think all the parks getting spinning mice and bobsled coasters this year probably agree with you!

This is proof that a coaster doesn't have to be hundreds of feet tall or go over 100 mph to be fun! Some of the best rides ever are the most timid looking ones. (Perhaps I need to take my own advice and get my hiney to Holiday World this year without fail!)

Yes. You must get to Holiday World. Although, Legend doesn't really look "timid" when you look at its first drop from the station.

I wouldn't call Legend a timid coaster by any stretch of the imagination. Especially at night!

I missed Chubby Checker's performance at opening day ceremonies yesterday and only got a single ride in (real life called--dinner at a friend's house) but it seemed to be just enough for everyone.
If you get dizzy you can look directly across from you. If you're bold, you can look to the sides for some of the best visuals ever. The spinning makes for some of the most interesting MCBRs ever.
Car #4 seems to be consistently wild. Try to load the car as evenly as possible weight-wise for the best spinning action.

Really, Playa? All other accounts suggested an off-balance car for best spinning.

It may seem crazy, but a more descriptive topic title might be a good idea.

All evidence at this point is circumstantial at best on the Gerstlauers...but I rode a car with two adults and two kids. We boarded the kids on one side and the thing went dead on the second 360.
Take that for what it's worth.

I know the seating is different on the G's vs the Maurer's, but when Keith and I rode on one side with one adult on the other, we had the absolute most insane spinning ever, the entire ride.
In fact I've always had the best spins when the weight distribution wasn't balanced.
Joe, hopes to ride Spinning Dragons this year.
EDIT: Sorry, I wasn't very descriptive - I was referring to our ride on Spider, I haven't ridden Timberland Twister yet. *** Edited 3/16/2004 3:05:06 AM UTC by Legendary***

On these types of rides, I personally enjoy the science of weight shifting. Even if you don't get the car to spin wilder or faster, leaning the opposite direction you are turning can make the ride significantly better.
No, I'm not a dork. Ow! Hey, stop! I said I'm not a dork!

fearless ben, how can you diss Ghost Blasters and their log ride like that? Im a sucker for Sally rides and I know its short but you gotta admit that ones a lot of fun. CS's log ride may be the best log ride not in the states of FL and CA too. This is not metioning the flats, which I think are enjoyable too.
Lets not forget, the Ripsaw can be very enjoyable in January in Minnesota too ;). *** Edited 3/16/2004 4:07:52 AM UTC by Touchdown***
