"Sweeping" a Park

Wednesday, July 17, 2002 1:08 PM
Rollergator wants to talk about riding all of a particular type of ride, like all the standup coasters in the country, etc. That leads me to a related question : How many of us like to "sweep" an amusement park by riding every single ride there that we're allowed on. Obviously past a certain age we can't ride kiddie rides, but even then we can ride carousels, trains, swings, boats and cars. Obviously the way to do this is ride everything once, then go back and reride favorites as many times as closing times allow.

So how many of us have swept which major parks this summer ?

I have been on every ride at SFgadv. But not in one visit. Eveb Road Runner Railway doesn't have a height restriction.

I usually hit the coasters first. After there out of the way I hit the drop rides then rides that are rare or new. Followed by the log flumes. If the park has an old carousel with hand carved horses I'll ride that too.

I figure why ride a tilt a whirl, paratroopers, ferris wheel or rides found everywhere when you can usually ride them at your home park.
