Mall of America coaster

Saturday, December 1, 2001 7:14 PM
Does anyone else think that the Pepsi Buzzsaw coaster at the Mall Of America is a tight squeeze when strapped in! I am 6 ft tall and weight 220lbs, and I had a hard time getting in and comfortable. Why don't they make the trains different and bigger? It is suppose to be a family ride, but I would squash my son if we had to ride together!

 

Just wondering.

I agree.  I was there a couple of months ago, and almost couldn't ride cause the lap bar wouldn't lock.

Any ride system design is a tradeoff. The more suitable a design gets for larger riders, the less suitable it becomes for smaller rides.

I can't even ride that thing anymore, just because of my height. It's very uncomfortable. But I still visit camp snoopy when I go to the mall, because they have some other good rides. However I'm finding them to be a tight squeeze too. I have no problem with the rides at Valleyfair, but many of the rides at camp snoopy (mighty axe comes to mind) are a problem. Maybe they thought that five year olds were the only ones who would want to be flipped upside down 82 feet in the air?

Yeah, I agree squezzing into the thing with two people is always a challenge.  There's only one real thrill ride at Camp Snoopy and that'd probably be the Mighty Axe.  The flume is great, though I don't put flumes in the thrill ride category.

Just wait till next year!

The ride as I remember was just ok, but I only got two rides on Ripsaw in 98 I believe. I remember it being a little tight although not much different than any other kiddie or junior coaster trains.

Danny, who often gets Ripsaw mixed up with KBF's Jaguar... and considers the flume(s) at IOA is a thrill ride.
