I WOULD choose to go on a day with a PAC concert. Hopefully it won't be too bad...

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

If Mind Eraser is like most SLC's it will be rough.

^^Mind Eraser is bad. I've heard it being called "Ear Eraser" before if that gives you any clue to what kind of ride you'll get.

Viper isn't bad for an old school Arrow looper but do expect some headbanging in the boomerang. It's a good ride.

I've always thought Boomerang was one of the smoothest out there and I attribute that to the newer style "bullet" train that's on it. Darien's is my favorite of the standard variety.

Boomerang is actually really fun towards the back, Mind Eraser sucks and is only worth one ride for the credit, and Viper isn't too bad (although it's not good either).

DARIEN, N.Y. (WIVB) - News 4 is heading to the scene of an accident at Darien Lake in Genesee County that left one man dead.

Darien Lake's spokesperson confirms for News 4 that the Genesee County Sheriff's office is on the scene investigating the death of a man who fell off the "Ride of Steel" early Friday evening. The ride and surrounding area are closed to the public. A witness tells News 4 that the man who fell from the ride had no legs.

Darien Lake released a statement saying their thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family of the guest.

It appears it's happened fairly recently, maybe in the last hour or so... Was this the same one that had the death of a mentally challenged person?

^^^Yeah, I do believe someone fell from this ROS in the past, but survived. I think this is the first death for this one.
