Chips, dips, chains, whips... You know, your basic high school orgy type of thing.
Millennium Force Lift Hill
The lift hill height is 310 feet. The angle of ascent is 45 degrees. The drop is 300 feet at an 80 degree angle.
The blue train was stuck on the lift hill as I walked by. That's never good, especially if you're on the train. Fortunately, they got everything running again.
Mean Streak Train Returning to the Station
Mean Streak is a big coaster. This is in the middle of it. I have a feeling you could nearly fit Timber Wolf from Worlds of Fun inside of Mean Streak. That's how big it is.
I rode Mean Streak once. To say it is rough would be a disservice. I would recommend having a chiropractor on call if you're going to ride it. Okay, it's not that bad, but it is a rough ride, which means it's not nearly as fun as it should be.
Gemini has tubular steel track mounted on a wood support structure, which makes for an interesting ride.
I thought the kid pushing the woman around in a wheelchair was worthy of a pic.That's Wildcat in the background.
In Line for Diamondback
Guy with blue hair? Check.Sadly, it started raining. Then pouring. We waited in the station for it to clear up, but when it did, I decided to call it a day and head up to Cedar Point.
I was in line for Diamondback, but there was lightening in the neighborhood, so they closed the rides down.This is Zach, one of the ride operators. He was providing comic relief.
Backlot Stunt Coaster
This coaster was a lot of fun. It's a LIM launched coaster.
Vortex Lift Hill
The inversion in the center is a Kamikaze Curve, which was first used on the Orient Express at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City.It was awesome riding another coaster that had that inversion element.
With a bit of Diamondback thrown in at the top.
