Rumbler was great!.

My legs were too long for the Looping Star.

Wild mouse wrenched my knees, but was great fun!

I agree, T2 is a great Vekoma SLC!!!!

Get to Beech Bend to experience the Rumbler!!!!

Your reports always entertain. T2 beat the hell out of me on my one and only ride, but maybe they sprayed some WD40 on it or tightened some bolts or something. Thunder Run is a great woodie (and Hurler did run like that at one point, very briefly), and I remember Chang as actually being fun, but perhaps it has not aged well.

Wow, Chang has blue supports now ... still yellow track though. It certainly looks better now though :airtimer:

Dave, I don't know what the hell they did with T2. I still enjoyed Chang, but I also like Mantis which pinballed me around a bit too...

"$11 for a large Coke and a slice"

Is Kentucky Algonquin for "rip-off pizza joints"?
Tell 'em to put in Little Caesars - $5 for a large pizza (with the corresponding quality, natch).
