My guess is that someone decided to finally clean out their glove compartment. :) It probably got rained on, which is why it sealed shut.

Oh, yes. They will still provide you with your score, it is not sent to your e-mail address at all, so feel free to make one up or use a disposable one as Steven said.

Compared to the airtime on the first drop, back row, what were the bunny hills like? About the same?

It amazes me how spectacular the reflection pool lit up with the Carousel behind it looks at night.

Also, the parking lot wasn't completely un-paved :?: until that fall. Yes, good eye, though!

Yes, it's pretty neat living so close to the park, as I drive down Washington Street right past the helix quite often. :o Good way to pass the off-season. :)

Also, I think one side (left or right) is worse than the others during the corkscrews. I want to say the left is worse, but I could be wrong. Has anyone else noticed this?

Yes, unfortunately King Chaos tends to squeak a lot, but it's a good ride nonetheless.

Good point. That's probably the case as a few of the riders are doing it. If they were going forward, you can get whiplash from not having your head supported. So basically, it would leave you with an unfortable ache after riding.

Those seatbelts are one next to ineffective. People don't wear them properly a lot of times (kids will put it around their neck).
