I love it, the first rider in the front seat - a 93 year old lady that rode the original.


That was great. She definitely didn't look her age.

I hope I'm riding coasters at that age and not in an urn on a shelf somewhere.

I was going to say that. She looks like shes got many years to go. Good for her.

I rode Ravine Flyer II once yesterday, and it was even better than I imagined. I haven't ridden any other Gravity Group coasters, but this made a fan out of me! Fast paced, awesome air, and plenty of twists and curves. The airtime was particularly great on the bridge over the road. Perfect "floater" air. The pacing of the ride was excellent, with no real slow spots. One little side note, though. A little confusion was generated by the fact that you do not buy Ravine Flyer II tickets at the ticket booth, you can only buy them at the ride's entrance. the ride cost 3 tickets, at 1.50 apiece, so 4.50 per ride. I'll get some pics up soon.

^So, is the airtime all floater? Is there any ejector air on this ride?

There's some ejector air on the bunny hops after you cross back over the street.

It's good to be back home after today because it didn't go liked I hoped. When I arrived at Waldameer this morning I wasn't feeling nervous, sick, or tired, but nature would have a different plan for me. I had three great first rides on this coaster. It totally blew me away and I loved it. However, after my fourth ride I started to feel a little sick, but like a tough coaster junky I thought nothing of it. Then the fifth and sixth rides came and I thought I wouldn't be able to keep my food down, so I asked for someone to switch out with me. After a few circuits I jumped back in in hopes of redeeming myself, but I was only able to stomach four more trips around and then I had to get off. I really felt bad (naturally and mentally) because there were other people there who could stomach the coaster and I should have known better to think that I could handle it. I guess I didn't expect this coaster to be an extreme woodie. I got to admit it was funny seeing that bird flying out of the third tunnel and almost hitting Robb...
