They despised KK well before it broke down; they despised it when the plans were announced.
What they don't get is simple: the general public as a collective have fallen in love with the rocket. The bigger the better. The Dells and the rest, well, it just doesn't factor in any more and that drives them crazy.
It is generally understood that Xcelerator has 2.4 times the lines that Ghostrider has (on a regular day, not when the park is not stuffed with ACE hell-boys). *** Edited 6/15/2005 10:06:37 PM UTC by Scooby***
You're wrong, Scooby. I live in So Cal and go to Knotts at least once a month. Between Xcelerator and Ghostrider the woodie is by far the most popular, although Silver Bullet outranks both. Monte comes in fourth and Boomerang is the least popular adult coaster in the park.
If you include non-coaster rides both the log flume and Supreme Scream are vastly more popular than Xcelerator.
That's funny. At Cedar Point, TTD gets outdrawn by an Arrow corkscrew, a tired old suspended coaster and a one that--as far as the unwashed masses are concerned--is a 26 year-old woodie. Click on 'Rides and Ride Policies,' read and weep.
How'd that happen?
