Really nice photos! I agree the coaster is great overall. I really enjoy Pandemonium at SFNE.

I like the looks of this one. It's a mirror image of Spinning Dragons at Worlds of Fun. I do, however, like the looks of this one more. :)

The ride indeed is excellent. Great photos of the ride.

I just thought I would post a link to this video I made, I spent about 4 hours editing it. Starting immediatly once I got back into Rolla from the park.

(This is MConte05 from the sfstl.net boards btw)

Nice Trip Report.

Is it the same layout as Mr. Six's Pandamonium at Six FLags New England?

BTW: THBS looks awsome! :br

I've always wondered how they would do a skateboarding coaster...
And it actually doesn't look too rough


It's not rough at all. There's only one jolt, going into ramp, and that's a track issue. I think the lead-in is just really small there. The spinning is all smooth and buttery. Tis very nice.

And coastercrazed, it's the same layout though mirrored.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Wow, this is a great ride for SFSTL, and it looks so cool in the area. This looks so much better than I expected, and now I really want to go back to SFSTL. I see that it is in the back of the park, but (random question) is the entrance by Xcalibur or is the entrance in Loony Tunes National Park?

The St. Louis one looks 10000000X better than the Fiesta Texas one. That entrance is sweeeet! And the ramp looks awesome!

Ehh, it's a little bit of both. If you know where Friar Tucks Turkey Legs is, then you could say that the entrance is basically right there. The park is situated right next to Xcalibur though.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

Very nice.

I don't understand why the record parks like Magic Mountain, Cedar Point and Great Adventure don't have rides like this. Not even a simple mouse.
The cheapest rides to crank up their records...

Other than it's location, I don't really understand your statement. SFFT's version has a much better que line, as it is all indoor and has the same themeing, just at a higher level. Also, our ramp resembles more of a skateboard ramp and has a cool red and black color scheme. Overall, I'd say they even out.

As for the entrance, SFFT's has the same thing, just that the actual door is between the video screen and the same display boards and a halfpipe lookalike.

Great TR Jim, your guy's Johnny Rockets kicks ours buttox.
