I was at the park this weekend and it was pretty busy and really hot! I had been to the park about 2 years ago and really liked Rampage a lot. This time though, while it was more fun than I remember it being and had more airtime, it was also extremely rough. It also felt really not maintained. There were times where it felt as if it was ripping off the track and there was one really bad pot hole after the second drop before the turn around that slammed my back pretty good both times I rode it. And yes, I did hold my back off the seat. The other thing that I saw were bad operations. The height limit for Rampage is 48". There was a train that went out with two little girls in it that could not have been more than 3 or 4 years old and definitely were NOT 48 inches. I was actually a little concerned that one of them would even make it back to the station. Obviously the two teens working the ride did not care about their safety. Both of the girls I am speaking of were smaller than KidTums and one of them was in the back seat by herself. There is no way that this was a safe ride for either of them. The ride ops need to be more careful about this as it could end up in a law suit for the park.

Other than that we had a great time and were there to celebrate my 34th birthday. Nothing can be better than riding coasters with your friends for your birthday!

How about the "save yourself the wait in line and just dump a bucket of water over your head ride"?

Thanks Mark, I added this to the What's New for 2011 Thread.

As far as a name, I suggest: "This Boat Won't Sink"

"Plunge in the Projects"

"Bessemer Bathtub"

Dye the water red and call it the "Crimson Tidal Wave"

I named it something less jokingly but Hydro Vengeance sounds pretty cool to me. Voodoo rain storm time! Let me just get out the rain sticks and start dancing. Wait no! The Alabama Wata'hammer.
