Like Vater, I rode it at KD...my first inversion, and it scared the *stuff* outta me, LOL. As much as I'd like to return the Anton shuttle back to its original home, I'd REALLY like to see Rebel Yell returned to *its* former glory...and it was GLORIOUS...:)
No kidding. What the hell's happened to it in the last couple years? Retrack it, repaint it, and dare I say make the effort to actually dispatch the trains at the same time so they can race, for crying out loud. :-/
vater and Gator.....takin me on a trip down memory lane at my dear old PKD....
i was never tall enough to ride King Kobra....it was gone after 1986, and i was still a small fry, lol. but i watched it cycle many times, droolingly...(is that a word?)
and i second the notion about Rebel Yell, its needs some serious TLC...and while were at it...the water park should go entirely back in the woods. one of the worst mistakes that PKD ever made was draining Lake Charles. any old school KD'er here would agree with me i know...
I do like Anaconda...but I agree, it can't compare to the ol' Kobra. Love that pic, Tim! Ugh...gettin' all emotional n' stuff. Sounds like the three of us need to get together and start an Anton/KD lover support group.
no one should EVER get rid of an Anton....they're not making any MORE ya know!
That's yet another one of my beefs with PGA. Parks in 3rd world countries can afford to keep these awesome first and second generation Anton shuttles operating. But a corporate conglomo like Paramount couldn't afford to keep PGA's operating for some reason, and insist the ride had to be removed (and not for anything new, the old site still sits vacant).
