Looking for a Cuddle-Up ride in a park

Monday, July 14, 2003 6:10 PM
Does anyone know of a park with a Cuddle-Up that is still running today? If you do can you please tell me what park and any information you have about that park.

Thank

Sure,

Knoebels in PA and Stricker's Grove in Ohio both have the small versions of a cuddle up.

What the hell is a cuddle up?

It is like a spinning teacup ride except the cups you sit in can interchange among the different spinning panels on the floor. That means your constantly changing directions.

Cuddle-ups are great. And there are even new ones being made now! DCA has one in the Flik's Fun Fair area and I think Toyko's Disney Seas park has one too. I am kind of curious if anyone besides Disney has gotten one of the new ones. Anyone know?

Crazy Daisy is the name given to smaller versions and I believe they were made by PTC. Check out the pic. I must say that it's a pretty neat ride, and if you aren't dizzy from spinning, you'll be amazed at how the cups barely miss each other. Strickers is open again the second Sunday in August for Family Day, for those who are going to be in the SW Ohio area. Sylvan Beach in NY also has one.

As mentioned above, Knoebels has one that is not really good. Strickers Grove's rocks but you can only ride it on July 4th and the second sunday in august.

Adventurland Iowa has one also

Conneaut Lake Park had the best one I've ever been on (the original that was where the bath house is now, not the protable version).

The last one of these that I saw was Hersheypark's Coal Shaker during a visit in the late 1980's. It was located in Mine Town somewhere near where the Arcade is (perhaps the same building?).

MANY years ago (the 1970's I think) the tubs were just your standard tubs and they were a dull yellow I believe. Sometime in the 1980's they were changed to look like chunks of coal. It was taken out sometime between 1988 and 1998 (not sure when). One version of why was because it was a very noisy ride and its noise would interfere with acts in the Ampitheater. I think I heard that it is now in storage, but not sure if that is true or just a rumor (or perhaps it was at one time but is no longer).

Kind of hard to take a post as objective if a park or coaster name is part of the "user name"

I remember riding full size Cuddle Ups at Geauga Lake in the mid seventies. Those had five moving disks in the floor I believe. I think Myer's Lake in Canton had one too. Those are the ones I'm looking for, but I think they're all long gone now.

Wood anything else is an imitation

The title of this thread is ripe for parody [and hijack] but I'll behave. In addition to the parks already mentioned you'll find Cuddle-Ups [original or new] at Adventureland, DCA, Western Playland, and Rye Playland.

This would be a prime classic ride for a comeback such as the flying scooters have done recently.

From the picture Cedar Point has something close to it, but it is for the younger riders in camp snoopy.

Rye's is as kiddie version, too.

The only one I've seen (and until I read this thread I had no idea it was a Cuddle-Up) was the Coal Shaker at Hershey. When I visited in '95, which was my first visit since the mid to late 80s, I couldn't believe they had removed it. It remains one of my favorite flat rides, and I've always preferred it to the more common Teacup ride.

Regular tea-cup rides tend to make me sick but Crazy Dazies do not (at least the only one I ever rode didn't). I really wish they were more common.

Are there any of the large kind (more then two tables) around? PTC still mentions them on their webpage: http://www.aimsintl.org/members/memTemplateShow.php?memID=65
