the park is pretty good with a great atmosphere. i want to keep this brief, so i will just review the rides from my point of view.
BEAST-5- i still think this ride is a little over hyped. the second lift to the brake run is what makes this ride. 2 rides very back seats. 5 and 25 minute waits.
VORTEX-8- my favorite coaster in the whole park. this ride is sooo awesome. the double corkscrews are really neat because you go through them at 30 mph it seems like. good job. 1 ride very backseat. walk on
OUTER LIMITS-6.5- a good coaster w/ great theming and launch. the rest of the ride was pretty boring before the break run. 1 ride backseat 10 minute wait
FACE/OFF-7- i dig this ride, parks should try and squeeze them in somewhere. 2 rides, somewhere in the middle. 35 and 40 minute waits
SON OF BEAST-2- let me go on record to outright chant loudly at the top of my lungs:OVERRATED! OVERRATED! OVERRATED! this was one of the most boring rides ever created. i thought werner stengel(sp?) was a modern day coaster genius....well the son failed miserably. not only did some parts hurt, the ride's layout was the most pathetic design EVER created. the loop didnt pull any forces and it felt like you were going straight. when this ride fell over in the winter, they should have kept it there and burned it to the ground. if you visited pki earlier in the season and didnt ride it, dont feel bad at all, the only thing you are missing is one ride out of your track record. i ride, 2nd to last backseat. 15 minute wait.
TOP GUN-4.5- still my favorite suspended, too short but fun.
KING KOBRA-7.5- this was really a surprise. i loved this thing to death. the loop pulled many a force as did the helix. the best part of the ride is the 2 camelbacks. talk about airtime! i smashed into the top of my harness. there were moments of headbanging like vortex, but i am not a sissy and complain about those things. i believe most coasters猀栀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 戀甀洀瀀礀 攀砀挀攀瀀琀 昀漀爀 猀漀洀攀琀栀椀渀最 氀椀欀攀 洀昀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀椀 愀氀猀漀 瀀氀愀礀攀搀 愀渀 愀眀攀猀漀洀攀 瘀椀爀琀甀愀氀 爀攀愀氀椀琀礀 最愀洀攀 眀⼀ 洀礀 昀爀椀攀渀搀猀⸀ 搀爀漀瀀 稀漀渀攀 眀愀猀 挀氀漀猀攀搀 眀栀椀挀栀 洀愀搀攀 洀攀 洀愀搀⸀ 椀洀漀Ⰰ 椀 眀漀甀氀搀 琀愀欀攀 瘀椀氀氀愀椀渀 漀瘀攀爀 戀攀愀猀琀 愀渀搀 猀漀戀 䄀一夀 搀愀礀 漀昀 琀栀攀 眀攀攀欀⸀ 最漀漀搀 搀愀礀 愀琀 琀栀攀 瀀愀爀欀⸀ 愀氀猀漀 洀愀礀 椀 愀搀搀Ⰰ 瀀欀椀 栀愀搀 琀栀攀 戀攀猀琀 愀猀猀漀爀琀洀攀渀琀 漀昀 最椀爀氀猀 漀昀 愀渀礀 瀀愀爀欀⸀㰀戀爀㸀ⴀ䴀椀欀攀㰀戀爀㸀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ㰀戀爀㸀㐀㠀⸀㘀洀椀⸀ ⴀ 䌀倀㰀戀爀㸀㈀㜀⸀㈀洀椀⸀ ⴀ 匀䘀伀㰀戀爀㸀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ㰀戀爀㸀㌀ 䴀䘀 爀椀搀攀猀㨀㰀戀爀㸀㌀ⴀ㈀Ⰰ 㔀ⴀⰀ 㤀ⴀ㈀
