Skydiver was easily the best ride in the park.

Lakemont has the only Toboggan I've ever ridden. I'm not particularly tall, but I smacked my head on the final bunny hills so I cringe what that experience would be like for anyone taller than me.

Skydiver was closed when I went. Unfortunately not surprising at all given the state the park has been in. It's sad that I'll probably never ride one of these. It's a shame that the flat rides are probably leaving. The Round-Up was a rare kind I haven't seen very often, Twister wasn't anything too exciting but it was really weird and cool, and the old sketchy Octopus rides are way crazier than the newer models.

There's still one in Wisconsin if you're that into sadomasochism.

There's some town called Elysburg that apparently has a pretty good amusement park. It doesn't have a Skydiver so I'm not sure how good it is.

^ Speaking of that park, I'd love for them to rescue Skydiver if it came down to it.

That would definitely make me go there.

I also noticed how that park has three wooden coasters but only one large steel coaster. I wonder if they struggle with attendance with a ratio like that.

I freaking LOVED the Octopus there!

Easily the best ride with the craziest cycle in the park. I also wish that there were more of these models versus the Spider models. While I like the Spider rides, the Octopus rides crap all over Spider's.

I like Skydiver rides too, but you had to have two people to ride and there was NO WAY that Michael was going on it with me. He shares the same thought about the Zipper too - hence the reason why I haven't been on either in many, many years. :lol:

I had to stand around the ride for 5-10 minutes to wait for another rider. I was able to take a mother's son on the ride and she was grateful to get out of riding.

I for one, would love to see Knoebels adopt Skydiver if it came down to it. I have only ridden it once, not at Lakemont, and don't remember much, other than I liked it. I rode it at Idora, if that tells you how long ago that was.

As long as they keep Leap the Dips IDC what happens to the rest, easily one of the most surprising coasters Ive ever ridden.
Coaster Count: 142 total 94 steel 48 wood
Favorite Steel Coaster: Skyrush at Hershey Park
Favorite Wood Coaster: A tie between The Voyage at Holiday World and T Express at Everland
