I was going to film at the Pavilion, as Hurricane isn't worth riding again after last summer's bad trip, but the traffic was hell. They seemed to be running one train and doing it fairly fast. I did see Rainbow running, which I haven't seen in a while.
Stay tuned for Great Adventure, Hershey, and Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
Here are the pics I took:

Wood Coaster Fan Club - coming to a park near you
I am doing a video on rollercoasters for my senior project so I got a quick start by running down to Myrtle Beach to film Swamp Fox at Family Kingdom. The glorious Philly Toboggan train looked great and to make a long story short, the ride kicks Hurricane's wooden butt.
AMEN! The Pavilion should take lessons from Family Kingdom on maintaining a wooden coaster. I've been riding the Pavilion's Hurricane since opening day in 2000, but last October the ride nearly killed me. The back seat was so rough I had to finish the night out in the front seat which was much more tolerable. I think part of Hurricane's problem are those God awful Gerstlauer trains.
I had a TR somewhere where I talked about that and the Hurricane.
