Rugrats Runaway Reptar at PKI, is it a success?

Friday, December 14, 2001 9:45 PM
Has this coaster been a great success with the small-fry enthusiasts? I am beginning to think that maybe Vekoma should heavily market this coaster along with their Rollerskater kiddie models. They seem to be great additions and with no problems.

Almost all parks want a junior coaster so it might be possible for Vekoma to focus more on this(kiddie coasters) as opposed to the big ones.

I sure liked it. I liked Woodstock Express, so inverting it was a good idea to me! I would tend to agree that Vekoma's little rides are real hits. The Flying Unicorn at IOA is another nice ride.

 I agree with Jeff. Reptar was a great sucess for PKI this year. Everytime I went to the park, there was always a line for it. It really is a family magnet. Heck, there are quite a lot of seasoned enthusiasts who ride it a lot also.

Who knew it was going to be that cool?

I really liked the Flying Unicorn at IOA. The drop was actually tall for a family coaster!

I went on the at PCW (same ride) and i thought it was great. I'm pretty tall and actually got some great unexpected  foot choppers.

I think the Vekoma junior inverteds look like the best in the line of junior coasters. Hopefully Six Flags will get ahold of this and put them into their parks that do not have children's coasters (*cough* SFoG).

Maybe at Coastergallery???   I lke this ride but the only beef I had with it was that the backs weren't padded.  It wasn't to comfortable.  It was still a great little ride though.

I liked Silver Streak.. The ride did last long enough for to get uncomfortable.

 

Personally I am glad Wonderland got it last year...

Very neat little ride...sort of like Woodstock's Express but with scare-the-poop-out-of-you foot chopper moments (that is, if you are not short).

Foot chopper is right... I'm only 5'8" and I can "walk" up the lift!

My daughter and I have been to numerous parks and ridden numerous coasters and everything else, and we love it. We also love the Ghost Coaster and Beastie. I wish they'd build intermediate versions of the same coasters, maybe 20% longer and higher and faster.

Thats why I like Knotts' Jaguar! because it is an intermediate style coaster that adults and kids can appreciate.

Actually, Jaguar would be pretty fun if it were inverted!

I think the Inverted Vekoma kiddie coaster is a perfect addition to a park looking for something different, while still being a kiddie coaster.
