S&S "Spin Shot" tower retrofit

*sniff* *sniff* Vertigo... *sniff* That was my baby and got me employed by S&S for one day. Stan paid me out of his wallet. $1.

Such a fun ride if you were the large harness and the pins weren't pushed all the way in to tension.

Vertigo was one of those things I didn't do because it always was crowded when I was there that summer and I figured I'd do "in a year or two when demand dies down". Oops.

It's not like people were knocking down the door to ride the thing anyway. A Skycoaster isn't particularly fast to load or operate either, but as another up-charge for a particularly unique experience, does it matter?

Skycoaster isn't even counted as a "coaster". You're just slinging around in a bunch of circles. I've seen these kinds of rides before.

I was wondering the same thing. But then I moved on.

I went to Amazon and ordered a set of four coasters and it turned out they weren't even coasters, they were just things to set my drink on to keep it from ruining the table.

That was my first thought, but I couldn't remember his name. He was a living, breathing Coaster Buzz meme.

Holy crap. Kyle Fobe seemed completely correct and normal until I saw Tyler Boes and now Kyle Fobe is making me legit laugh.

Right? I have no idea in the world why that name entered my head.
