The photos were taken about three years ago, so it could be anything, and there was already a huge discussion about Gurnee's TP in 2006.

Rant Warning!!
Now that we've gotten completely off subject, I should say that it really was not worth resurrecting this dead of a topic.

Hate to say this but GREAT AMERICA parks is starting to turn into how SFGAmWorld was a month or so ago, with all the conversational posts at least...

I can't believe how long ago that was, I wish we knew what happened to the Triple Play. ^I don't see whats wrong with posting here- the more posts the more alive this place seems :D.
The rides are GREAT, the shows are GREAT, the fun is GREAT, at Marriott's Great America! REMEMBER Marriott's GREAT AMERICA, REMEMBER Marriott's GREAT AMERICA!

It's good to see more posting here, yes, but it's irritating having to sift through a bunch of conversational "chat-room" posts before I find anything worth reading.

Jon, is there a trick to riding the Orbit so you don't have to get banged around?

I've never had a problem with being "banged around" on Orbit so I can't help you there.

Well I'm small. lol
My mom was also complaining saying how the enterprise at Coney Island was so much smoother. I have to agree but I'm sure there's a way to avoid it.
