I noticed in the "Best Dark Ride" post, a lot of people have nominated this as their favorite. What is it all about, what do you do?

The Exterminator is a dark ride/coaster at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin, PA.

It is a Reverchon Crazy Mouse - a spinning coaster. The special effects are great, and the storyline is very creative.

ThrillRide has a good page about Exterminator, with pictures taken from its opening season of 1999. Go here: http://www.thrillride.com/exterminator/exterminator.html

It's a Wild Mouse-style roller coaster inside a building filled with dark-ride type theming.

Oh, to make things a little more exciting, the cars are a bit like Tilt-A-Whirl tubs.

It is an awsome coaster,I personaly liked it better than the Phantom(because phantom was too bumpy),but I realy didnt notice the theming, I only saw the theming in the que line!I guess we were going to fast,I probaly would have noticed the theming if I rode it again,but i'm an Ohioan so I only went once,on hot 101.1 day!

I'll tell you what... First time I rode Exterminator, my group decided to "forget" to tell me about the spinning cars. I can't tell you how caught off-guard I was when that happened.

And you know, the highlight of that ride, to me, is flying down from the hairpins into the "boiler room." That's great.

The most hilarious roller coaster that I have EVER ridden. You laugh the entire ride. Great hairpins, theming and surprising drops, not to mention the spinning cars.

Couldn't agree more. Everyone we rode with was laughing and giggling the whole time, and the people coming off the ride all had smiles on their faces. My wife and I had a great time at Kennywood, but I think Exterminator is the thing we talk about most when we talk about that day. *** This post was edited by RagingBull on 1/28/2001. ***

Only Kennywood can take an 'off the shelf' ride, and create something that has a wait of 1 hour. Rain or shine, it packs a sure thrill.

For me, that's the single best perk about Phantom's Revenge... Hopefully Exterminator's line will finally shrink, at least a bit!

"Unfortunately, nobody can expain what the Exterimator is, you must experience it for yourself"



"Now this might feel a little bit weird.."


LOL!!!

P.S. You would have to see the movie to get the humor.

The quotes are actually both true about the Exterminator.

When I made the trip to kennywood, i considered skipping the exterminator, but after i rode it i was very wrong. It was suprisingly exciting, its full of hairpin curves and out of control spinning, I rode it 3 more times!
