So far I've gotten 1,3,4,6 and 8.  I'm counting the Giant Coaster, which is operating as Wild One at SFA, STILL a great ride.  John Miller, rebuilt by Schmeck(fire, '32), who would expect anything less!  I got some good pics of Looff's Giant Dipper last fall, but had to choose one park due to time restraints, er constraints.  SFMW and SCBB would have to wait for another time, Stealth was calling my name.  Employees at SCBB thought I was NUTS taking photos of the empty park and coaster the day after their season closed...The Racer at Chapultepec, I assume that's the coaster listed as Serpiente de Fuego since it's "twin-tracked".  Crystal Beach Comet is now at SFGreat Escape,  Coaster at Dorney is nowThunderHawk (coming soon!) and that leaves, sadly Mr Twister.  I'll visit the namesake at Knoebels, and get a pic of the "Golden Bolt".  PPP here I come.  Since I am a woodie freak, this list is for me!

rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you
