Over the past few years Fright Fest has been going downhill and this year was no exception. The park didn't have too many decorations, Area 51 should have been in Hometown, Tinseltown was very plain, and the freak show should have been in Necropolis. There weren't as many scaractors and the ones in ...

I went to SFMM in 2002 and I was lucky enough to ride Flashback a few times in a row. I thought the ride was smooth and it was a lot of fun for a smaller coaster. It's a shame that it has been neglected and that it's going to be torn down.

I haven't heard that story before, thanks for sharing. I went to Six Flags Great Adventure in August and I rode the Skyride. Although I have only been on 4 sky rides this is by far the best. I wish I could have rode Delta Flyer/Eagle's Flight and Southern Cross so I could try to compare them. So if ...

I like the idea that it's going to be enclosed but the addition of a second wild mouse doesn't make sense. I think that placing it in Orleans Place is a bad idea because it's too close to Ragin Cajun.

For me it's Yankee Clipper because I like the straight drop better.

In case any of the Gurnee people havent seen it yet, the recording studio is sadly sponsored by B96.

I was at the park a few days ago and I hate the Wiggles World more than I thought I would. The area is hideous and is a big waste of space. The new line configuration for American Eagle is horribly long. The entrance isnt too noticeable and is very plain. I wish Wiggles World wasnt added but theres ...

I rode the Demon 5 times today and the logos look even better in person. I dont know if its just me but it took me a few minutes to see the flames. The flames should have been painted a lot lighter.

Demon Drop at Cedar Point is great and I like the first generation free falls the most. I love Cedar Point and I think everyone should make a trip there at least once. Ohio isn't that far and the drive is worth it to go to a great park.

The first looping coaster was the Centrifuge Railway built in the 1850's. The first corkscrew coaster was Corkscrew built in 1975 at Knott's Berry Farm.

In the picture it shows what looks like Shockwave and Superman:Tower of Power at Six Flags Over Texas. Shockwave is blue and in the picture the coaster is green. It could be a differnt Six Flags park so if I'm wrong someone correct me.

^ You're probably thinking of Antoine's. I can't remember if they sell waffle cones there or at the Funnel Cake Foundry. The only place I know for sure thats sells them is the Firehouse.
