Legendary; spend the cash if you have it and do it all! Not listed, but I think it's still there, is a cage where you get into a velcroe suit, jump on trampoline thing, and stick to the wall (as seen on Letterman-years and years ago!). My advice, get there as early as you can.I live in Portland and go a bit; it's always busy, but still fun. If you need directions, the quickest way etc, let me know!

What do they call it? Spaghetti, the Ride?

While taking in the Alpine Slides at Government Camp,I would suggest going up the mountain to Timberline lodge. While not coaster related,Timberline Lodge is a fascinating piece of Depression era architecture and you get a great view of the Oregon Cascades and Mt. Hood. Dress warm as you will be at a 6000 foot altitude.

While going to Thrillville,ask for Ed Roberts. Show him any coaster club membership card and you get a free ride on the Schwartzkopf Jet Star coaster.

Nasai,congratulations on your home purchase!:) E-mail or call me!

Thanks, Ron!

I have to get up to those alpine slides. According to RobBob, you control them completely. Heck, I thought they were similar to old car rides, and on rails. Dude, I will kill myself if I am in control! ;)

Rob, the CPG appreciates the new house you got for us to crash in!;)

As for the slides, it's the others in front of you who are most in danger if you lose control! Legendary, Rob, et all, when you go, the op will put a set time between the sleds. After giving you the OK, always take a few extra secs to verify it's cool to go, and for the first few secs go SLOW, then let it rip! Why? Otherwise you will catch up to the person in front of you. It's kinda like a freeway; some folks just do not belong in the fast lane, yet use it anyway! However, use the slow side at least once to get a feel for the layout. After that, it's the fast side for the rest of the day! And be sure to catch some air on the (short) drop just outside the start!!

Oh and one more thing. There are two styles of sleds, and the difference is extremely noticeable. Ask for the big person's sled, even if your not. Those (fewer of them) sleds rip-n-tear down the course.

Well, if I drove them anything like my mountain bike, there would be a major need for insurance. I swear I forget that I am flesh when I do this stuff.

Rob-who likens his fleshy whites to Michael Jackson. The difference is that I actually have vitiligo. ;)

I think I have to check out the Mt. Hood attractions on my trip out there too. Have any of you done the reverse bungee or zipline? Both of those sound like fun!

I have done a reverse bungee. Pretty crazy stuff there. Very intense, and frightening, but invigorating as well. ;)

If you mean, was I "scared white," then the answer was a resounding yes. :)
