Also, the Scat 2 at Beech Bend. That was the most evil contraption (next to the Fly-O-Plane at Lake Winnie) that I have ever rode. OUCH!

You can add Rock O Planes at Sylvan Beach (NY) and Casino Pier (NJ). There's a Roll O Plane at Sylvan as well. Gillian's Wonderland Pier in NJ has a Crazy Dazy.
Also, check their website cause they have coupons for $3 off the $16 admission.
As for Virginia Reels, I would say if any ever returned to an American park, it would be at Knoebels. This would be a great project for them once the Flying Turns are finished.
Interesting how so many of those Pennsylvania parks have the classic rides mentioned here. There are also more ACE classic coasters in PA than anywhere else. Seven of them are in the western part of the state.
Also -- Wooden Side Friction coasters -- Lakemont's Leap the Dips is the only one that I am aware of. *** Edited 8/10/2006 4:13:05 PM UTC by Arthur Bahl***
Trekker Park said:
Virginia Reel -- Anybody know of one of these still out there in an American park (I know there are a few in England)?
There are no Virginia Reel rides in the UK. There is a small powered ride in Great Yarmouth called Tyrolean Tubs which shares slight similarities but is a very different ride altogether.
-Jimvy! - misses the Reel at BPB :(
