Vaiku Pasaulis, home to the only known roller coaster in Lithuania, has been documented on ThemeParks.ie. http://www.themeparks.ie/europe/vaiku/index.htm
See the pictures on ThemeParks.ie.
You know when your having a hard time finding new credits when you take a trip to Lithuania for 1 coaster. :)
And a Jet Star at that. I think Richard has almost won in the war on credits ;).
Actually, in slight mitigation, it was the end of a weekend in Poland that only finished there because I couldn't get a return flight home at a time that I wanted from anywhere else :)
At least it wasn't a rollerskater. Then he'd be a credophile.
This makes Conneaut Lake Park look like Disneyland. LOL!
These rides don't even look like they could operate, but judging by the picture from the top of the ferris wheel, I guess they do.
Are there even operators here, or is it some sort of community park where you run the rides by inserting a quarter?
I was at Keansburg Amusement Park on the Jersey shore on Saturday September 26th last year and they only had about 1 operator for every 4 rides on a Saturday afternoon. The crowds were very light. The Op just went back and forth between rides as needed.
The day I visited there were two operators roaming. The controls for each ride are in lock boxes so nothing happens without them.
Honestly the coaster was as good as any Jet Star I've been on. Schwarzkopf built solid rides to be sure, but it wouldn't ride that well if maintenance wasn't up to scratch.
I love the Ferris wheel bunker. Almost as scary as it looks sitting inside it.
Wow, Flying Cages! Very rare...there are none operating in the US. Did you try them, Richard?Last edited by Mamoosh, Thursday, July 8, 2010 7:07 PM
^I saw that and wasn't sure if the pic really was "those jungle gyms". Park looks pretty cool to me...and even an Anton in a parking lot would still beats the absolute daylights out of most other rides... :)
No, I only tried the coaster and the Ferris Wheel. Those flying cages looked like too much work ;)
Flying cages ARE a lot of work, but they're a lot of fun.
