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>

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
