I'm filling in some gaps in my directory. Neither Coasterbuzz nor the official park sites have these numbers. Anybody able to fill them in ?
Height : HW Raven ?
First Drop : PKI Beast, HW Raven, KW Racers ?
Speed : PKI Beast, HW Raven, KW Racers, KK Thunder Run, CW Hurler, IB Hoosier Hurricane, Cornball Express?
Length : HW Raven ?
Ride Time : KW Racers, CW Hurler, KK Thunder Road, IB Hoosier Hurricane, Cornball Express, HW Raven ?
Also, I have 65 mph as the speed for Mean Streak and Beast. Was this in their original configuration, before the added brakes? Or is this currently ?

Check out rcdb.com (roller coaster data base). you will probably be able to find those stats there...

I would say Papa Beast still hits 65 as the lowest point is just after the third tunnel (the two connected tunnels). There has ALWAYS been trims on the ride anyway so I doubt the new mag brakes make any difference. It still makes it just as far up the second lift as it used to, the pacing of the ride is just copleely and totally killed.
Mean Streak comes no where near 65 any longer.
If given the choice I'd choose a hamburger over a hotdog anyday of the week.
