It goes without saying that "riding roller coasters in Russia" was one of the more interesting things I've done. Also interesting because this park was so nice! Well landscaped and the rides seemed to all be in really good shape. I wasn't really expecting that. Actually had a really good time at this park!

What, no "Whirr, Whirr, Kerchunk" references?

I believe it actually IS called the Rocket, and there is another one on the fair circuit where there are multiple rockets that go up a tower StarFlyer style (like you referenced). They're made by Funtime, the same people that do Sling Shots and the Snake chaos pendle ride that we had time on at Grona Lund.

^My on ride video clearly displays the KERCHUNK and how excited I am to hear it when we get to the top! =)

Nothing beats KERCHUNK like what we heard (and felt, yes?) at the top of the loop of this 2012 China Tour shuttle coaster. Even those watching could hear that sound. <shudders>

After riding it, even I could hear that "sound" from where I took this.

I honestly was surprised by Tennessee Tornado when I re rode it. It was good. I was surprised until I realized...
it wasn't designed by Ron Toomer

Quite possibly the most hilarious roller coaster video we've ever posted!

OMG this makes me wish you had video of our Colossos ERT back in 2012 that was in the driving rain. The most painful yet most memorable and fun ERT session I've had.

Edit - Also, that is an OBSCENE amount of water on Hakugei.

Nice video! Still can’t get over how great that color scheme looks on that ride(atleast in my personal opinion).
If it rains hard enough on a ride they might as well give me a bar of soap to take up there with me. Two birds one stone. :lmao:

Definitely a good excuse for me to visit Japan one day. Have a great weekend everyone
