That’s a real shame to hear. I’m glad I got chance to ride it at least.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That sucks, it was down during my trip to the park this past July and I was looking forward to riding it this year since I’ll be living a lot closer soon, but oh well :(. I hope they can replace it with a worthy successor in the next few years.

Ugh. I really liked that ride. It was unique, forceful, fun, and had one of the funniest “endings” for a big coaster! Grrr. Can’t they ship it to Michigan’s Adventure and run it on sheep power or something?!?

Donkeys are my way of life!

Damn! I am sad to see this coaster go... I freaking loved that ride. The awesome launches... The slow rolls... The crazy stupid ending... It was all so awesome! :cry: :cry: :cry:

Oh wow... this may be one of the most universally liked rides to be removed. It’s right up there with Dueling Dragons and Big Bad Wolf. This sucks.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!
