Those tilting teacups were actually my first ride at SFStL. Aren't/weren't they called the Hannibarrels? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I believe your right Neuski. I remember riding them when I was little-bitty. Never could ride them more than one time or I would be sick as a dog for sure. :) Great pics Paul of SFStL. This was my original home park as I used to live about 20 minutes away, and I still love to go back and take it all in and think to myself, "this is where it all began for me!"

The first time I went to the park, my lil bro (now 12) was just big enough to ride. My parents didn't watch the ride cycle at all, and just let me take him on the ride. They were a little freaked out when the cups started tilting.
Are there any other barrel rides that tilt the same way?

Nice Pics Paul.
SFStL is one of my favorite parks. I always look forward to taking a trip there.

Hey RCTtrant I was actually there on Sunday April 18th so chances are I didn't see you. I have had several emails correcting me about the teacups and the changes have been made to the site. I'm glad everyone is enjoying the pictures. Look for an update next weekend for Holiday World's opening day and then a week after that I'm going to get up close and personal with Thunderhead and Dollywood.
