It does feel like you are kinda going through gears.

Lap Bar only.
KK shakes a lot as it accelerates.


That certainly makes a lot of sense then. Thanks for the education!

Continuing with my previous post, here's more of the Merry-Go-Round Museum near Cedar Point in downtown Sandusky. I actually don't think I knew this place existed when I started my trip but just happened to drive by it on the way to CP, so I had to check it out. It was a nice break from CP, and their Allen Herschell carousel is gorgeous (although I still think Toshimaen's Dorado is THE most beautiful of all). Anyway I digress...Check it out when in the area!

The difference between a merry-go-round and a carousel is...well apparently debatable: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=743058#p743058

Happy 2014 TPR!!! I'll be the first to admit I've been a major slacker with updates to my thread. To remedy this I have set a goal. I want to share with the world from A-Z my amusement and theme park nostalgia collected over many years...hopefully weekly. It's really not right to hold all this collected stuff hostage in boxes in my closet, and though I'm sure there'll be several flubs, I want to do better with my thread, so....kicking off the new year and first up is Adventure City, a small but nice park just a bit down the street from Knott's Berry Farm. I really liked how Freeway Coaster leaped over that one tree branch...too cool! I'm not sure any other coasters do that. Anyway and as always, I hope you enjoy my updates, and be sure to support Robb and Elissa with TPR as well as post comments to keep me going until I eventually maybe someday get to park Z.

Glad you're back, and Happy New Year Mark!

I forgot you had posted that TDL 2007 postcard.
I got the same design in the t-shirt....and a coffee mug!
But they took Scary Teddy off the main design, and put
him on the handle of the mug.

I will be showing it in my One Month of Mugs thread, end of this week. :wink:

And Adventure City was a nice little park to enjoy, even
without big thrills and huge attractions. Tree Top Racers
were pretty good back then, when we visited.

This design looks great on a black t-shirt.

Thanks Bill, and we must've bought the same mug! I still like to take it to work during Halloween.

Alabama Adventure (aka Visionland) circa 2007...sadly Rampage sits and rots as the owners continue converting the park into a water park. Under potentially different future ownership, do you think the dry park side could make a comeback?
