The last time I rode the Dragon coaster it was butter smooth but amazingly boring because of those terrible trains. What a snooze fest...

The only thing I really know about Rye, and the reason I would like to go there is for Derby Racer. I've heard that, unlike Cedar Point, they still run theirs at full speed ? When Cedar Downs was still at Euclid Beach, it was always a fave of mine.

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

I would go to Rye Playland if it was combined with Adventureland in Farmingdale. And if you're going to Quassy, I would highly recommend going to Lake Compounce. It's one of my favorite parks, and in my opinion it beats the other three parks I just mentioned combined.
Top 3 Parks: Knoebels, Cedar Point, Kennywood
Top 3 Steel Coasters: Phantom's Revenge, Intimidator 305, Fury 325
Top 3 Wood Coasters: El Toro, Phoenix, Boulder Dash
Top 3 Flat Rides: Knoebels Flyers, Black Widow, Zipper
Top 3 Water Rides: Coal Cracker, Escape From Pompeii, Splash Mountain
162 coasters

Yeah, Derby Racer runs at a ridiculous speed. That and the Log Flume are easily the 2 best rides in the park.

Thanks for posting that, I'll have to take advantage of that deal, I've been meaning to drive out there since it's not far, just the traffic sucks. How crowded does this place normally get on a weekday?

The place gets a bad rap for the coasters, but the cheesy dark rides alone make it worth the price. The best (most violent Whip) in the country. The Derby Racer. They also have decent bumper cars, probably the hardest hitting non-Lusse ones I've been on. All rides I've mentioned are more fun than the coasters.

^How is the crowd there these days? Although I felt at right at home (which must say some odd things about me,)- I think some of the members of the 2008 trip were kind of frightened.

Rye Stab-Land was the moniker and I think we voted to NOT leave Tony there when he was late for the bus because he would have been murdered :devil: :lol:
