ApolloAndy's avatar Saw this on the front page of MSN today. Thought it might be of interest:!110

Hmm...something is busted and I can't get it to work anymore. Did anyone else see it (the map with all the parks on it - click the "famous roller coasters link") and can anyone explain why I can't get the link to work? *** Edited 7/21/2006 8:43:30 PM UTC by ApolloAndy***

Lord Gonchar's avatar I got the message:

"This collection is no longer available. It may have been deleted by the author."

There's always these. (shameless self plug)

EDIT - I still get the message when I click the link on MSN's front page. Go figure.

matt.'s avatar Knott's has Xcel in the regular view and then it myseteriously turns into some sort of red and yellow coaster when you go into Bird's Eye.

Whatever it is it sure does look like fun! ;)

The Knott's view is strange how if you look at in one direction it has Xcelerator and in another it has Windjammer.

Here's some information on the ride for those who don't know about the ride.

For folks of the Google Earth persuasion, this is my list of bookmarks:

It's not a complete list of course, but it's got most of the big parks listed. Except for Magic Mountain. I forgot Magic Mountain.
