Sesame Place announces Oscar's Wacky Taxi roller coaster

Posted Thursday, September 21, 2017 9:42 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Oscar's Wacky Taxi will feature a bright yellow, taxi cab-inspired train with the grouch, himself, at the helm. The coaster's 1,200-plus feet of track will feature a 40-foot drop and a series of "exciting twists, turns, and plenty of airtime hills."

Awesome! Reminds me of Wooden Warrior. A great way for kids to start testing their nerve on the way to "grown up" coasters.

Saw a POV creation on Facebook and I think it looks fantastic. Great starter coaster.

Wooden Warrior, Roarasaurus, now this.....Gravity Group is becoming the wooden alternative to Miler kiddie coasters...

It's great to see Sesame Place adding so many rides over the last 10 or so years. I remember visiting as a kid and there were no rides at all, just water slides and playground type attractions. Vapor Trail is better than the standard Vekoma Jr. coaster layouts and this looks like it will be a good coaster for the park as well.

So you satirically think Milers are the best coasters in the world? ;)

George only knows how much sprockets cost.

How would George know? He can't even walk his dog.

When you only work an hour a day, twice a week, you should have a lot of time on your hands to figure stuff out.
