I like to ride woodies.
That was a scrambler at Conneaut though
The one at Kennywood was also a Scrambler,it was called"Space Odessy",was next to the T-bolt entrance.
You have disturbed the forbidden temple, now-you-will-pay!!!
Oops, I thought he said caterpillar.
Anyway, Seabreeze has an indoor scrambler.
Arthur Bahl said: CLPs was there until about a year ago when the building collapsed.
Really? I must've missed that. I really do bring bad luck to smaller parks?
Incidentally, SCAT2 and Tempest are both creations of Grover Watkins...who was obviously *not quite right*... ;)
CLP decided to add some fairy tale theming to the ride. They put some pictures from "Hansel and Gretel" on the sides of the cars and called the ride "Witches Stew". This is another nice ride restoration by this park along with the Tumble Bug.
By the way, rollergator, did you have anything to do with that lightning bolt that hit the Blue Streak this year. That was another stroke of "bad luck" for this park.
The building at Conneaut that used to house the indoor scrambler used to be a bowling alley and then a funhouse. I hope they're able to restore it. Conneaut has lost a lot of its old buildings (mainly due to neglect). I hate to see any more go.

No, I was, however, responsible for the lightning strike on KRumbler... ;)
Two really unique flats from the NC/SC trip earlier this year (I believe both were from (Soriani and Moser):
Top Star, MB Grand Prix, DDM: http://www.pbase.com/rollergator/image/64088233
The other one was a Sombrero (Mexican Hat Dance) from PedroLand at South of the Border, closed permanently along with the park:

Miracle Strip had three indoor flat rides....Scrambler, Tilt-A-Whirl, and Trabant. Names were Abominable Snowman (Trabant), Dungeon (Tilt-a-Hurl), and....hmmmm, can't remember the name the Scrambler had....also had an awesome dark ride, cool flume, and some other cool goodies like the 02 Tower that ran a nice combo program. Fell victim to the same blight as most other beachside parks - developers.
These "rare/unique flats" have become kind of a hobby for me...in addition to the rollie-coaster thingys... ;)
The building that housed the scrambler-based music themed dark ride at CLP didn't totally collapse; part of the roof did (due to either a storm or heavy snow, I can't recall the whole story, but it was weather-related).
CLP's Scrambler, if I recall, is one of the "good" ones... with the lower sides, full padding, and doesn't make that horrid "ready to fall apart" noise that so many I have come across lately have done. Unless the music just masked it...lol!
CLP's music dark ride Scramber I thought was much better than Kennywoods.....much darker, neater effect. The ride op's had a great time in there, and would slap your hand when your car came near. My son dragged me on it like 15 times one day. CLP's name for theirs was "Ultimate Trip"... I think KW named theirs something space-related like 2001 Odyssey ( I know that ain't spelled right) or something to that effect.
