Or any car, since cars don't typically leave the ground unless something goes horribly wrong.

How would they theme a water ride to NASCAR again? lol

Cedar Point already has a NASCAR themed ride. Anyone care to guess what it is? ;)

DING DING DING. That was too easy!

When I worked at the park, a coworker would always say "Welcome to the Penis 500!" in his spiel. No one ever caught on. No matter what anyone said, it always sounded like "Frelcormm doda Preenduz vrieve Urmdrubt". What a hoot!

That was a fun spiel to really let go with your voice. I always tried to sound like a sports commentator on that ride.

Knotts has one too. At the first Winter Coaster Solace, right before park closing when Camp Snoopy was completely empty I bribed the ride op with $40 to allow an adult-only take-over of the kiddie whip. Guess who sat in Gordon's car.

Come on...guess!?!

They should have hired Charlie Brown's teacher to work that ride.

You don't need to, their over driven/blown speakers take care of that for everyone.

But back to KD, who else thinks the NASCAR tie-in is kinda "meh?" Don't get me wrong, I watch most of the races and kind of like NASCAR, but the tie-in just doesn't catch my interest. Of course, I'm sure it will catch many more people's interest there.

I tend to really make fun of NASCAR, a lot.

The theme is probably going to really turn me off, but the coasters will probably be something to get me there anyways.

I couldn't care less about Nascar, so any such theming won't do it for me.

Try living in VA or south. Its in your face about as much as the rebel flag is.

Neither is for me.. But makes a lot of people happy here apparently.

Hmmm...vertical construction. Who'da thunk?

(FYI, that's not a 90* banked turn)

That's just part of the Peanuts Gang theming. If you're old enough to run the ride, you're going to sound like a muted trombone.

Moosh, your timeline is off. You already made a smart-azz remark making fun of everyone.
