Kozmo's Kurves

Looking pretty good, I might have to take a side trip over there when they open it. Unless, of course, they mysteriously drag on construction for 3 years like Flying Turns.

What about Flying Turns' construction has been mysterious?

Why anyone would waste that much time and effort on a ride like that. ;)

Seriously, I don't think he said it was mysterious. He was joking about taking that same amount of time for KoKu - which would indeed be mysterious.

Read it again, Mooshie. :)

Dang dangling modifiers...lol

It looks like fun for the kids, but I really wouldn't make a special trip for a kiddie coaster, but that's just me.

I wouldn't make a special trip for a kiddie either, LK. But I would make a special trip just to go back to KG - and snag the kiddie while I'm there (if it's half the ride that HSTC was, I may want re-rides).

If it is open when we go next month, I am sure to ride it. But then I am a credit whore.

Well put, Gator.

Most of us are credit whores, Dave. It pads the count so we can brag. lol

It's only 15 minutes, so it's not really a big deal to me.

I don't know how far it is from me now that I moved to WV. Probably about 8 hours. If I lived back in Altoona or State College, which is about 3 hours away from the park, I'd probably secretly make a special trip just to ride the new coaster, but I would still lie about it. :)

According to Kozmo's Facebook page they are doing test runs starting today...

Kozmo reports that it's open as of 1:40 PM EDT!

According to a local news article, the ride has individual lap bars. The cars don't look that big in pictures, so I'm hoping its not uncomfortable for adults to ride. I'm not envisioning two adults riding in the same car, individual lap bars or not.

We visited the park last evening and the ride was up and running. The line extended out to halfway across the front of The Whipper building, all evening. We didn't take time to ride but I did watch several runs and they take you through the circuit three times.

I have hearrd back from some friends (non-enthusiast) and they say they like KoKu more than HSTC. These were the same friends that though HSTC was the roughest coaster ever. Only complaint was that the cars are a little tight of a fit for larger riders, more so that HSTC was. Hopefully this next week I will get down to check it out for myself and to see if these rumors of the test vehicle running on Flying Turns are true.

Flying Turns news from Coastin' Steve on Usenet:

So there you have it.

I'm not sure how great an idea having individual lap bars on Kozmo's Kurves is. I suspect that they're trying to get more kids on to generate more money on ticket days. The height requirement is 36", although I don't know whether that's to ride alone or with an adult.

I wonder how bad those individual lap bars are. I say that because HSTC was a tight fit for me but the Miler I rode in Ocean City, NJ last summer which had 1 lap bar for each row was fine. I even got 2 clicks on it.

If I wasn't so tired I'd go there now and credit whore it up...maybe tomorrow.
