I was at the park this weekend and it was pretty busy and really hot! I had been to the park about 2 years ago and really liked Rampage a lot. This time though, while it was more fun than I remember it being and had more airtime, it was also extremely rough. It also felt really not maintained. There were times where it felt as if it was ripping off the track and there was one really bad pot hole after the second drop before the turn around that slammed my back pretty good both times I rode it. And yes, I did hold my back off the seat. The other thing that I saw were bad operations. The height limit for Rampage is 48". There was a train that went out with two little girls in it that could not have been more than 3 or 4 years old and definitely were NOT 48 inches. I was actually a little concerned that one of them would even make it back to the station. Obviously the two teens working the ride did not care about their safety. Both of the girls I am speaking of were smaller than KidTums and one of them was in the back seat by herself. There is no way that this was a safe ride for either of them. The ride ops need to be more careful about this as it could end up in a law suit for the park.

Other than that we had a great time and were there to celebrate my 34th birthday. Nothing can be better than riding coasters with your friends for your birthday!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Alabama Adventure, Alabama's Largest Water and Theme Park, is pleased to announce the most exciting addition to the Theme Park in years with a "Shoot-the-Chute" water attraction ride. This major expansion is sure to keep our Guests cool & thrilled, plunging down a five story, heart pounding chute for a massive splash soaking riders and on- lookers alike. HOWEVER, we need a great new name! In preparation of the new ride, Alabama Adventure is offering a chance for the community to "Name the Ride".

A panel of judges will select the ride name that best fits the park and community, where one lucky winner will receive a grand prize package of four season passes to Alabama Adventure Water and Theme Park, one Parking/ Rentals Season Pass for the park, and be among the first to ride the new ride with 10 of their friends. The contest begins Wednesday, November 3rd and will run through Wednesday, November 17th.

How about the "save yourself the wait in line and just dump a bucket of water over your head ride"?

Thanks Mark, I added this to the What's New for 2011 Thread.

As far as a name, I suggest: "This Boat Won't Sink"

I named it something less jokingly but Hydro Vengeance sounds pretty cool to me. Voodoo rain storm time! Let me just get out the rain sticks and start dancing. Wait no! The Alabama Wata'hammer.
