Waldameer Trip Report

When I got to the park I was expecting the ticket booth at the front but it was right smack in the middle of the park which was weird.Then I got food and it was very affordable. So the first ride I rode was a tilt-a-whirl and it spun a lot but was rough. Next, I rode one of two coasters of my day Spinning Dragon and I chose to go down the first drop backwards and it was very intense. The spinning was more than I have experienced on any spinning mouse coaster I have ever been on. Then I rode the drop tower X-scream and it was very thrilling! Then I rode the log flume thunder run and it surprised me it had two drops and a themed tunnel. After that I rode Ali Baba and it was very lame. I could tell that it used to have water effects but the weren't using them when I was there. Next, I rode a painful ride called wipe out and all I can remember of it was that it was painful. Then, I rode what I came here for: Ravine Flyer 2 and it was so awesome that I rode it twice. After that I rode mega vortex which is a mega disk-o and it was more thrilling that what I thought it was going to be. Lastly I rode X-scream and Ravine flyer 2 one last time and this time I rode Ravine Flyer 2 in the back and it made the air time the best making 3 second airtime into 7 second air time. Then I left the park that surprised me of how good it was!

"Chose" to go backwards?

It's a spinner with the outward-facing/back-to-back seats. You can either sit facing forward for the beginning of the ride, or backward. Personally, I prefer taking the first drop backward.

Ah. Gotcha. The first type of spinner I thought of was the Tickler, where the seat is more like on a Tilt-a-Whirl.

Those Maurer Sohne spinners are a lot of fun. SeaBreeze has one called Whirlwind. When the park is slow my brother and I ride together, but sit diagonal from each other (one sits left front, the other sits right rear). That car spins so unbelievably fast through the whole course! Great little ride...

The only spinning coaster models that I know of that spin continuously thoughout are the Fabbri Spinning Madness and the Wisdom Jungle Twist....that is, unless you can find someplace that will "pull the pin" on a Reverchon.

edit: Upon further reflection, there is also the one-of-a-kind "Tyrolean Tubtwist" which hearkens back to a Virginia Reel. http://rcdb.com/884.htm
