Photo TR: Camden Park - July 1

Postby bgwfreak » Fri Jul 07, 2006 5:31 am

I hadn't been up to Camden Park (Huntington, West Virginia) yet so I decided to take the West Virginia Turnpike (I-77), pay a few tolls and check out the park.

It was an OK park at best. They had some cool old flats though and the two coasters weren't bad. Weren't great, but they were ok.

I finally got to ride my first whip! It was a lot of fun!

The swan is thinking... ooooh! That feels good!
1m.jpg
They had a new set of flyers. But no snapping was possible. At least for me. :(
1l.jpg
These people are having way too much fun on Lil' Dipper.
1k.jpg
The kid in the second row is like freaking out! He must have seen a picture of Robb!
1j.jpg
Jr. Whip. Everyone say it together... Aweeeeeeeeee!
1i.jpg
Haunted House. This thing should count as a credit!!! It has a LIFT HILL and it runs on gravity! It's not scary at all, but it's still fun twisting and turning on those cars that feel like they will fall apart any second.
1h.jpg
Worst mini golf ever!
1g.jpg
Zamperla flying ride. It was ok, but it reminded me of riding a paratrooper on your stocmach.
1f.jpg
Smallest lift on a log flume ever!
1e.jpg
Log flume.... remind anyone of a certain road in San Francisco?
1d.jpg
Like yo. I'm not going to ride with my restraint down!
1c.jpg
Go already! This is like being on the West Virginia Turnpike!
1b.jpg
Bull Eye. Another classic flat ride.
1a.jpg
Big Dipper - A pretty nice old wooden coaster. It has the single lap bar, no seatbelts and one massive ejector spot and then some nice air on the other hills. The guy is saying "Grrrr. I'm being anti-social. Throw me out of the park. Please!"

Hey kids! This is rusty the clown! Come on in to my dumpy little park! Ok it wasn't that bad.

Glad you survived the trip. Is the shuttle loop still standing? How long did it take you to get there from Charlotte?

I Love Donkeys!

The shuttle loop is no longer there. :cry: I didn't even know they used to have one till I was planning this trip.

Drive time is about 5 hours from Charlotte (not including stops).

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Great TR Wes, one question though.. is the Skydiver still there? Thats probably the thing I'm looking forward to most when I go in a few weeks. Here is a pic of the one at Lakemont if you aren't sure...

Image

The most insane flat ride ever.

Once again thanks for the TR and now I'm REALLY looking forward to my visit later in the month! ::D

EDIT: Durr a look in your pics reveals all.. Image

Why didn't you ride? Was it down? Or did you just chicken out.. ::P
