Rides you always do?

Thursday, July 25, 2002 10:20 AM

What kinds of rides do you always hit when you visit a park, besides all the coasters. I know a lot of us are big dark ride enthusiasts, and obviously a lot of us (including me) take a spin on the in-park railroad. Personally I always try to leave a little time for the log flumes, I just love those things! I don't care if there is no difference from one to another riding style, I just always like to try out the different layouts and see how they fit in with their setting. I especially like Arrow flumes. I've been wanting to start some kind of flume club, lol. Anyways, is one else as big a fan of flumes as me? What other kinds of rides do you always hit?

-Dark Rides or Dark Walk Throughs

- Swinging Ships

- Ferris Wheels (not the old fashioned bench seat type... but the big ones with "bucket" style cars)

- Carrousels (not the kiddie type and on the rare occasions I am at a park by myself I usually skip these)

- Log Flumes

-----------------
Kind of hard to take a post as objective if a park or coaster name is part of the "user name"

Swinging ships - one of my favorite non-coaster rides.

Carousels - got to ride the "merry go round"

Water rides, dark rides (prefer non-walkthrough, but walkthroughs are cool), trains are a great way to see a park, drop rides/thrill shots, and anything that flips me upsidedown.

At the mega parks I tend to do just the coasters, log flumes and drop rides. Sometimes I will hit a flat ride, but generally only the ones that I know I won't find at a smaller park that I'm visiting that year. I try to get my flat fixes at the smaller parks that only have 1-4 coasters. Unless of course there is a particularly good ride at a big park (Flying Eagles @ PKI comes to mind).

Drop rides, log flumes, and anything that goes around really fast.

I make sure to do all the Schwarzkopf flats. He built the most intense and fun flat rides around! SFGAm better not ever get rid of them!

Tampico Tumbler at Knott's, IMO is the closest any 'flat' ride comes to a coaster and always deserves a spin.

Nothing except at Kennywood - if I go elsewhere, its extremely rare that I ride anything but coasters. I'm paying my money for one reason, so I'm gonna stick with that.

Rare stuff like Tampico Tumbler, old stuff like a Whip or Rock-O-Plane, dark rides, Wave Swingers, and my newest thriller, the flyers....

edit: forgot Derby Downs, an awesome ride.....of course, I always "go to the whip" too early and my horse tires before the finish line...;)

Chaos and The Witches Wheel. Also do the log flumes and usually the raft rides when it's hot out. I try to hit all the coasters and then see what I can get on.

All spinning, sickening, flat rides. Also any non-1st generation free fall tower ;)

I'll ride anything I can at an amusement park, when I go up to Cedar Point the coasters are the most important though.

I've only been to Conneaut Lake once but every time I go I'm gonna make sure I get on the Flyers, I love those things.

I am also a big fan of log flumes. The one at Canobie Lake Park is my favorite.
