Now that I think about it does anyone remember a ride called the "Hilltopper" or the "American Revolution? I don't really miss it, I think I only got on it once or twice.

Now Davy Jones Dinghys might have been a nice ride to try out and I missed that one.... :(

The only time Sky Whirl ever got to me way the day I rode it in the rain with NO raincoat or parka (it was one of the ONLY rides open that day...)

I have to disagree... There was just something about the rush that you get racing toward that loop that the V2 just doesn't duplicate.

Plus it's a different kind of motion, pull versus push... pull ALWAYS generates more force.

I saw that picture but I cannot for the life of me think what mall that was (looks a little like Orland Park, but I can't really tell.)

And if that mall is still open...

That would likely be easy in Santa Clara, but there really haven't been all that many theme changes in Gurnee.

I look at it this way... at least it generates forum posts :) We might want to try this again but change a few of the rules and see if the results are any different.

I think it's pretty safe to assume that the Edge is the Last Ride Standing :shock:

They actually tried that already... That's where "Batman" is located and the reason that the Lobster became the "East River Crawler".

(I have a better idea, how about "The Edge" should get no more "heal" points....seeing that this is supposed to be a battle for "second place"?
