^But on the flip side, since they only seat 4 passengers, they really don't make much sense being anything BUT an upcharge.

I've actually never done any of the Challenge Park stuff other than the mini golf courses, I might give this and the go-karts a shot this year...skycoasters still intimidate me though.

I Love Eli Manning!

The one at six flags looks really fun, but you have to pay $25 after you have already paid $49 to get into the park. I don't think its worth it unless your in one of those fun centers or piers then I might rethink it.

It look's like i should have rode this while it was at VF. They had a wicked good deal. It was something like 7 bucks a person if two people rode. I guess that should have been a sign that the thing wasn't doing well and would be moved.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

^ That's what happened while the ride was at Dorney, also. In the last couple years it was really cheap to take a spin. I remember back when it opened they wanted like $20 (or more? can't remember exactly) to ride and no one did. That's when the price cutting started.

Good Going Cedar Fair.


I've never ridden one, so I'm actually pretty excited to do so.


I mean don't get me wrong they are thrilling, but they are not worth the upcharge price.


Oh yeah, I completely agree, but Cedar Point has a deal in May where you pay one price for a package and you get a room (2 nights), 2 starlight tickets, 2 full day tickets, 4 Challenge Park tickets good for anything in Challenge Park, coupons for later in the season, and much money. My mom and I have been doing this for the past 5 years or so and I think maybe one or two years we used all of the Challenge Park tickets because it's always too cold/rainy to mini golf, and I'm not a fan of the go-carts as there's always obnoxious kids who race that try and ram into you, or it's raining. So I'm just happy that there's something I can actually use the tickets on this year so they don't keep going to waste. :lolr:

Donkeys are my way of life!

^ Nice! Yeah when I buy the package, I go so early in May (the weekdays after opening weekend; there is NO ONE there...everything is a walk-on), that I don't even have to book the package until literally 2 or 3 days before. :lolr:

I think it would be fun to run that ride. You could mess with people when they were about to fall, that always makes a ride more interesting. :lolr:

It looks like it could turn out to be a good ride...

I like the fact that you can watch streaming video of people on the ride. :lolr:
