First generation Free Falls: love them or hate them...I just miss them!
This one one used to thrill riders at Six Flags Great Adventure. When I rode it back in the 90's it shut down while I was at the top and I got to walk down the stairs, it was almost as exciting as the ride itself. I love evacs!
With The Dark Knight being released on DVD this coming Tuesday, I couldn't help but give a little nod to the first ever Batman The Ride at Six Flags Great America. Here it is in all its original paint color glory of black and well more black.
In another thread, forum member Sparebear75 has posted a great photo trip report of the amusement park inside the West Edmonton Mall, home of Mindbender, the "world's largest indoor triple loop roller coaster".
Sadly, I've never ridden it, but several of my friends have, and didn't hesitate to rub in that fact by sending me a post card or two. The one below was postmarked 1987, the year after the accident. However, the photo shows the ride pre-accident with the original four-car trains. And four trains at that!
Well, this one has some holiday colors. Built in 1932, Rutschebanen is a side-friction coaster, meaning there are no upstop wheels, and a brakeman rides behind the last passenger seat. The park, Dyrehavsbakken, has been in operation since 1583!
