Now Davy Jones Dinghys might have been a nice ride to try out and I missed that one.... :(
There was a ride called the "Hilltopper" and was then renamed "Industrial Revolution". It was in County Fair.

Tidal Wave & Sky Whirl.

With Deja Vu finally gone at Gurnee, I really wish SF would lay off the coasters for a bit and get a few more family rides. Like Steven mentioned in another thread, the triple wheels should have hung on longer. For the right price, SF could have a new one. They just have to recognize the potential. If you compare the first 5 years of operation for both SW and DV, which one had greater capacity (and less downtime)? Kinda curious on that one.

Two words, Sky Whirl

I find it kind of funny that they took it out for a super thrill, low capacity, high downtime ride. Sky Whirl would be perfect, Family friendly, but everyone will still ride it, High Capacity (does anybody have some numbers on it) and Low downtime. Just what the park needs.

Hear that, time to call up Intimin to make another........
