I agree with you---BLSC is one of my favorite coasters at the park!

Rob, Racer and Adventure Express both used to have 44" height requirements. However, in 2005, Racer's height requirement was raised to 48", and the new IJ:ST was given a 48" height requirement as well.

When Cedar Fair took over, they raised AE's height requirement to 48", and added seatbelts to all of the Arrows in the park.


Nice TR, Erik! Just FYI, Flight of Fear is running unusually rough this year. I'm not sure what the problem is, but it has never been this bad since 2000. Were the lights on during your ride?

OMG! A TALKING MUFFIN!

You actually had four coasters and four trains, if you count the piece of BLSC in the bottom of that picture.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

I am loving this thread for some reason. Nice discussion!
I want to belive the Beast is the greatest wooden coaster ever, but my last few rides, I seem to get really bored after the first drop and the next, and only, great drop on the ride. For historical purposes you want to love it, but in reality, it isn't that great :?r

^ It's the trims. They ruin all the fun. :lolr:

^^^ I also noticed Flight of Fear was really rough this year, I wasn't expecting that at all, and it ended up giving me a headache the last time I rode it. :roll:

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Dominator at Dorney was lowered from 52" to 48" in 2008.

Millennium Force was 54" in 2000, making me too short to ride. They changed it to 48" the next year.

It all started with a donkey

That's true, but that kind of bothers me, cause the Beast is legendary. I realize Magnum is the first hyper coaster, but the beast is literally famous( there is a book by RL Stein called The Beast, and it is a terrible horror story about the coaster) CF sucks, they should give this coaster the respect it deserves. It may not be the king of terrain coasters(boulder dash is in my opinion, but I have never ridden either) but it still deserves glory.

That's Sean Flaherty's car. He doesn't really get on coaster boards anymore, or go to any events, but I've known him for 11 years. Nice guy, but doesn't really get along with TPR for some reason or other. He doesn't seem to hold it against me, though.

Glad you had a good time at the park a couple miles from my house!
