Yeah, this seems like a pretty awful idea. Maybe this one is just free after getting six holes on their punch card.

Well, not really a new one. It's the one being removed from Knott's.

So now it seems the news outlets in Kansas City are dragging up all the dirt on these rides. I think they provide good views, and are pretty to look at, but man, what a nightmare.

Rabbit:

Though I love bunnies, I completely disagree. A drunk company wouldn't make the genius gatekeeper and banshee.

Your answer is in another steel hawk thread.

I didn't say they were drunk when they built Gatekeeper! It's not like it's a permanent condition.

Banshee is "genius?" You been on it yet?

It does look like a lotta fun.

It's okay but not Genius.

Edit: I was referring to Gatekeeper.

No. It's a campground that's themed to a hotel that looks like a drop tower on the side of Rolling Thunder.

Or Maverick.

Trolling memes are starting to get as annoying as the trolling itself.

Those Funtime Starflyers have been remarkably....unremarkable. Not in the news. Weird.

Texas SkyScreamer is really really tall, by the way. But the Fiesta Texas ride runs faster, more forceful.
