Well, I've given enough attention to Six Flags Elitch Gardens lately... today I took a bunch of pictures of Lakeside, and I also dug through my old archives and added a bunch more pictures, so if you've ever wondered what their OTHER coasters looked like ("Wild Chipmunk", "Dragon" and the kid-sized "Coaster"), point your browser to http://www.pbase.com/knappk/lakeside
I need to take more night pictures, but on the plus side, I've included pictures that I've taken of fellow enthusiasts at the last three ACE events there (2001-2003).

cool pics, I really like the night one you have on there of most of the park, looks really cool! Wild Chipmunk looks pretty interesting, how many poeple can fit into those cars? 2? do they only run one car at a time? Anyway nice pictures, your SFEG gallery and other pictures are good too! *** Edited 6/1/2004 4:13:48 AM UTC by P18***

Wild Chipmunk is one of the better Miler mouses... two people can ride together if they don't mind a little intimacy. Though RCDB says they have four cars, I only counted three yesterday, "Alvin", "Simon" and ""Chip". Thanks for the compliments on the pictures!

They used to have four cars on there, but I havn't seen all four in a couple years...either way that is one of the most thrilling rides I have ever been on. It's amazing what a paint job would do for this ride... http://rcdb.com/installationgallery256.htm?Picture=6
Cyclone always has and always will be my favorite coaster, there is just nothing like it.
