IX Center TR (first open rides in OH)

Postby gravitywolf216 » Thu Mar 29, 2007 3:24 pm

Here in Cleveland, before all the super-awesomeness that happens in Sandusky, and the meidiocre-suckiness thats currently happening in Aurora opens. We have the IX Center. For those who don't know about it, the IX Center (International Exposition Center) used to be a tank factory, out by the airport here.

It was since converted into the largest expo center in the world. And every spring they host the world's largest indoor amusement park.

Some pictures kinda suck, and I wanted to take more, but my camera was havinging issues, so im going back to do this thing proper soon. So bear with me.

P.S. They were doing this "lights on and off thing" while we were there, did anyone go through that before?

The Satanic Ali Baba's comment was too long so I reposted it here

If you look at the counter-wieght, it has the same decorations as a portable chance inverter. And if if you've ever ridden one, you'll know that it goes way to slow. So I was kinda skeptical about it and almost skipped it.

But I went on anyway, and it was THE scariest pendulum ride I have ever been on at a carnival. Or ever for that matter. Even though it goes waaay to slow as expected, it TILTS! Like Acrophobia! And not all the time either it does it randomly, and fast too. It actually feels like the whole gondola just fell off the ride. It was wicked.

from the look of the crown, I think its Chance. They don't have it listed on flatrides.com though. It just appeared. When I go back, Im gonna see if I can find a tag on it or something. Most rides have a company tag plate or something similar on them

Not sure if it's the same one, but I know ARM makes a ride like that called Full Tilt.

Yes it is an ARM ride.
ARM is selling them as NEW and they are also modding old chance Inverters.

An American Classic.

It was okay.... The Crazy Mouse was the only adult coaster this year, I guess they sold the other one. There are a lot more rides that I wasn't able to take pictures of, but I got most of the major ones.

I used to be terrified of them when I was little, but they are pretty fun. Most of them don't have OSR's just huge padded lap bars in a cage. So when its upside-down the riders just kinda tumble around.
