PKI Question

rollergator's avatar Wooden coasters are not generally called *clones*. The phrase I'd prefer to use is "inspired by"... ;)

...and all wooden racing O-n-B coasters in the US owe a large debt of gratitude to the KI Racer...which in turn pays homage to the older wooden racers of Long Beach, Revere Beach, and the still-operating Kennywod Racer.

You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)

Intamin Fan said: I rode all four of the spaghetti-bowl coasters in the states in 2002, and PKI's by far is the worst.

Have you rode PKI's FOF since '02. Being a local, I ride FOF dozens of times a season, and I would admit that five years ago FOF was pretty bad at times. Now, over the past couple of seasons I've gotten some of the best rides off FOF I can ever remember. It's easily my favorite steel at PKI. I would also say the same for PKD's FOF, very re-rideable.

Never have rode the other two, so I can't speak for them. Does anyone remember when FOF got it's new trains and restraints?

Ahhhh, Kennywood's Racer.....I can't wait for that park to open again. They would arguably have the best maintained woodies around, at least in my opinion.

FOF got its new trains in the 2001 season. I remember this because the two FOF's and Robin got them the same year and i waited all season to ride Robin. FOF opened with the new trains opening day and Robin opened in Oct.
