^ The best part of that coaster, was the part near the end, when it looked like the coaster train
was heading right towards the station. Then it made a sharp right turn, and headed towards the station.

That was fun, but the rest of it? Meh.

They should have RMC convert it for the anniversary. Worlds first already-a-hybrid hybrid coaster.

Or just rip it the hell out and put in like a Chiapas level flume there. That works too.

I absolutely love mine trains; they're one of my favourite coaster types, and I always ride one whenever I'm in a park that has one. I've ridden Thunderation at Silver Dollar City probably more times than any other coaster.

Cedar Creek Mine Ride sucks ass.

Put me in the camp of "I wouldn't care if they removed it" too. It would be nice to see them lower the height restriction, but this is Cedar Fair we're talking about...

Remove CCMR and use that space plus what's left of the STR land and put in an awesome family/thrill GCI with a 42" height restriction. One can dream...

FWIW, When we were at the amazment shop (maintenance area that does B&Ms and Arrows) I asked the question about arrow parts and the guy said that S&S takes care of all the arrow parts. With that in mind, I don't think we have to worry about any arrows going away due to parts issues any time soon.

well.. evil of us, but you must admit we "enjoyed" the whole scene happening with the car behind us with the larger woman who INSISTED she would fit. . but didn't quite.. despite a good 4 or so minutes of grown men leaning on the lap bar to try and get it to close.

I say enjoyed, only because anyone with eyes saw the issue, and she kept saying that was NOT the issue, and there was a problem with the ride as to why it wouldn't go down.

Exactly. This is why I feel some Arrows have many more years of life in them.

I live down the street from the S&S facility, and when I last visited I saw an Arrow looping coaster train sitting in the yard (almost looked like Anaconda or Viper, it was green).

Speaking of maintenance, what is it about B&M that is so low maintenance? Why do maintenance teams like them so much? Are they just really well engineered (but then again, shouldn't every roller coaster be so?). I've always wondered this.
