No problem...and yes it would be sad if SFGAdv took out the parachutes. I'm not sure if there are any more left besides those and the ones at LaQua in Japan. In my opinion, SFOG should've kept the Great Gasp and moved it over to the Cotton States Exposition section!

That's right...how could I forget the Texas Chute Out?! Always thought that was a bit of a clever name.

Mountain Express

Postby montezooma » Mon Nov 10, 2008 10:05 am

Very clever name, the original three had great names, seems the "name pool" got rather shallow with the last two incarnations.

Best to the worst:
Texas Chute Out - Six Flags over Texas
The Great Gasp - Six Flags over Georgia
Sky Chuter - Six Flags over Mid-America
Sky Jump - Knott's Berry Farm
Parachuter's Perch - Six Flags Great Adventure.

And now for todays submission...Mountain Express at Magic Mountain, my first coaster!

^Wow, I've never seen a postcard of that ride. Nice one!

Here's Cypress Gardens' poor Starliner in its original home.

Since I am doing a Kennywood mini-series over in the attic, I thought I would share my Kennywood post cards here.

This view shows what the Lost Kennywood area looked like in 1989.

I have always loved the name "pitt fall" for that ride. So clever! Here is more from Kennywood
