When was the last time Great American Scream Machine was good? I've always gotten rough rides on it. And this is coming from someone who didn't find rides like Bandit to be an issue.

GASM was great when I first visited the park a couple years ago. The Cyclone trains ruined it.

^ I thought it was rough in 2016 even with the old 3 bench trains. And I made darn sure to avoid a wheel seat too.

Great American Scream Machine would be dramatically better if it was on fire.

That would be a waste of a perfectly good structure to RMC someday.

I like GASM as it is now, just as I liked Judge Roy Scream in TX it's last season.

I don't remember much from my visit in the 88/89 (other than the long line for Z-Force) , but certainly nothing stood out as particularly rough. 30 yrs later it's one of 3 coasters still there.

That style coaster was never smooth, not like the modern stuff is.

A full retack would help it, as I don't think it's been maintained well, but it'll never be as smooth as a modern GCI.

Z-Force....I had a few laps on that crazy thing.

I still like riding GASM. I only ride near the front now. I like row 3.

My kids have decided to get museum memberships Next year rather than Season passes(We've had membership since program started) but this was my 22nd season as a pass holder. May do a few one day visits though. But y'all enjoy next season. HITP will be our last visit for a full season. o/ I shall now retire to my bed for some rest before work. and speak to y'all laters.
