Rides That should be brought back to Life

Tuesday, August 5, 2003 7:37 PM
There are many rides that have been dismantled in the years gone by. Which ones do you think should be brought back to life. My number one pick is drachen Fire it should have been sold to sfwoa and used there. I also want the bat back.

Most that have been torn down in recent years have been for good reason...including Drachen Fire.

I understand people do not like Drachen fire but to me the ride was awesome. Look at it from my point of view for one second. It had one of a kind lighted trains. two first of its kind and only of its kind elements and one sweet drop, it was one o a kind state of the art rollercoaster. To me it was a master piece. It gave riders experiences of positve and negitave g's never felt before on a ride.( the cutback element). Plus the camal back hump after the first drop was awesome.

I think parks should concentrate on building the small woodies of the past, those coasters are the best, maybe build some clones of lost coasters.

As much as I really hate to do this(esp. since I'm always complaining about it), I think I must.

The one ride that I think should be brought back to life is none other than..........

M: TR

Now that was a "hard" one to answer.

Since I'm no longer considered "funny" I will not be including a signature with my comments.

too bad, dumbass. they just can't take it out of the dump and build it back together just for your sorry ass to ride about 3 or 4 times. listen to the beach boys. Mark of the Beast 666 Satan

Maybe it wasn't the Jim Beam facility that caught fire today, but the Ritalin factory?

Cedar Point Cyclone in place of Avalanche run, so I 20 years we can all say "I want Avalanche Run back."

Wait scatch the Cyclone idea, I want Avalanche run back instead of the ginormous box we have now. ;)

Er....back to the topic. I would love to see the Crystal Beach Cylcone, Coney Island Thunderbolt and Drachen Fire back in business. If I owned my own park I would try to recreate these infamous legends ;)

How about reviving Mean Streak to its prime? The first time I rode it was the year they trimmed it to death...:(

Goofy as it may sound...

for me, the Rocky Springs Wildcat in Lancaster PA.

I think it stood (SBNO for years) until sometime in the 1980's before it was finally leveled to make way for apartments, or town homes, or a development or something. Maybe not the biggest or the most well known, but I just like the idea of having a fourth Schmeck coaster with in a 2hr's drive.

It's funny how everyone wants Drachen Fire back. Although I never rode it, a friend of mine did and said it was the worst coaster he had ever ridden and mentioned that it was extremely rough. Whats wierd is that many enthusiasts complain about roughness, yet now so many of you want a ride back that was just that - a headbanger.
