Morgan Manufacturing

Now here is a post that is appropriate for April Fools day. While I absolutely LOVE Morgan Coasters I can't exactly say the same for the trains.

I recently took a trip to San Antonio for Spring Break, it was my first visit to Sea World, and the Steel Eel was by far my favorite coaster on the trip (which also included Fiesta Texas). It was just pure roller coaster bliss.

Unfortunately many a great wooden rides have been ruined by running Morgan Trains on them.

So while I sing the praises of the Steel Morgan Coaster I cringe at the thought of riding Morgan on Wood.

Happy April Fools Day! This is the perfect day to celebrate the Morgan Train and how proudly it runs on rides like CGA's Grizzly!

PS- My second favorite ride of the trip was Road Runner Express, that ride kicked A$$!

I wondered if it was the trains or the track that sucked on Grizzly, but I guess it was both :lmao:

I wish I had relatives/parents who would go and ride/seek out roller coasters with me. I've been to Texas so many times. I've been near Fiesta Texas and saw Astro World (when it was there) and actually went to Six Flags Over Texas but that's it! I never got to ride Steel Eel or Great White. But my parents were all too happy to go to the Alamo when I'd rather go on Steel Eel :P

I'd go see the Alamo, if for nothing else to remember it.

Park TV Commercials

Postby montezooma » Wed Apr 02, 2008 8:24 am

Park TV Commercials

So lets have some fun in April...Do you love park commercials? I do, that is why I spent several hours suffering through shitcoms like Family Matters, Step by Step, Full House and others to record theme park commercials. I have gathered the ones I was able to collect over the years and have transfered them to digital.

For the next 30+ days I am going to post a new "old" park commercial everyday, so check back often to see some of the greats that introducerides like "The Iron Dragon", Knott's Wacky Soap Box Racers and SFMM's "Flashback"(Could I actually be in love with a roller coaster?).

I have quite a random collection from parks like Disneyland to Ocean Park, there is even one from Dogpatch USA. Now please beware that some of them are missing the first or last couple of seconds, I did the best I could with the equipment I had back in the days.
