I know this is probably piling on but...this is the only park that has ever given me genuine fear while riding.

Here's a question. How many coaster enthusiasts knew that these mice had a limit of 660 lbs per car?

I've personally ridden with upwards of 800 lbs on board, and more than once...

Apparently this one has been sold to Wade Shows.

I develop Retro Games for macOS, iPhone, and iPad when not riding coasters.
