Just curious, is anyone else going to ride Leap the Dips for the big 100?

I can see where this thread is going even before anyone else has responded, so let me nip this in the bud NOW.  That carpenter who restored LTD did NOT claim on that coaster show that the park had something big planned for 2002, he said HE had a surprise for the park in 2002...probably another restored car or something else related to his restoration work on LTD.

And to answer your question, BigK...yes, I plan on being at the park this year.

Its reopened on Memorial Day of 1999, so I guess this memorial day will e its 100th b-day. I have to make it there this year considering I only live 90 minutes away.

Here's somehting perhaps a little similar in topic...

Leap the Dips WAS my 100th coaster.  I hit #100 in the summer of 2000, and then hit #200 in summer of 2001(Martin's Silver Comet.)  This year I am going for #300 in 2003 (haven't decided) but it looks to be quite a challenge.
I am extremely glad I picked Leap the Dips to mark my 100th.  It is not a "thrilling" coaster by today's standards, but the sheer exhuberance of knowing you are riding something that originated in Victorian times is incredible.  Just picture the men in suits and bowler caps or women in their corsets and feathered hats holding on for dear life.  It really is a piece of history.

Shaggy:  I'm with ya...hitting 100 was a cinch, and even 200 was pretty easy, but 300 is MUCH harder, and 400..well you probably have to coast outside the US for that one.  I'm at 262 and I hope to make 300 next year, too.  Best of luck to ya!

lol...I'm still working on hitting 15 considering i'm 13, don't travel and I've only started going on coasters this year...I expect to hit 100 when I'm 18 because that's when I can drive(Queer new driving law)
