^ I agree with you 100% but you forgot to mention Mr. Twister's tunnel on the turn, it was small and tight and taken at those high speeds it was quite scary.

While riding White Cyclone over at Nagashima Spa Land in Japan this past summer it had moments of Mr. Twister, it really took me back to what a great ride it was.

Click here to see more GREAT photos of Wild Cat and Mr. Twister posted at Scott's Amusment Closet

In his post you can see the the train racing out of the very small tunnel.

I can just kick myself for not ever going to the original Elitch Gardens. It's not like Denver was THAT far from Southern California. Unfortunately, I just never got out much.

Thanks again for all of these updates. It's been a great way to tour old and defunct parks---all of them great in one way or another.

Did the old Elitch's take any rides with them to the new down town area park? The old Elitch's looked amazing and so beautiful. Too bad we can't say that about the new Elitch.

several rides were brought over from the original location.....the Sidewinder rollercoaster, the Great Chase rollercoaster, the Spider, the Viking, the swing ride, the Rainbow, the Tilt-a-Whirl, several kiddie rides, and I believe a few others as well.....all of which still remain except the Rainbow.....

Can I park my donkey here?

Awesome awesome awesome. This what I've been waiting for. Takes me back to my early childhood. Thank you. The old Elitch's got me addicted to amusement parks.

In the old location of Elitch Gardens you could actually see the lift of the Lakeside Cyclone from the lift of Mr. Twister and visa-versa. Pretty cool to be in one park and see another coaster in another park.

VENTURE RIDE MFG.

Well when it comes to flat rides "I am into most things except Scat". OK, get your mind out of the gutter, Scat was a ride by Venture, they also made a little gem called the Cobra. These rides didn't make it into any theme parks that I am aware of but they were a staple on carnival midways for years. I haven't seen too many of them around lately. I rode one, I think it was the Cobra, at Marshall Scotty's Playland Park in El Cajon, CA when I was a kid.

For all you flat ride junkies, these two unique and strange rides are right up there with the Chance Turbo and Toboggan.
I now present "SCAT" & "COBRA" by Venture...oh and one other kiddie ride.

Any of you ridden either one of these?
