Stitch Posted November 18, 2003 Share Posted November 18, 2003 Favorite Roller Coaster : King Cobra I could never get enough of this ride, from the start when I would get in line I loved seeing/hearning the train roar by as a walked under it's second bunny hill. While in line the smell of it's diesel fuel and loud block brakes were bliss to my senses. I would allways gander at the sign instructing you how to get into the restaints and think how cool they were. When I reached the station I went to the first availble spot and waited for my ride and watched the operator in the tower dispatch the train. It was finally my turn to ride, I hoped into my restraints worked my arms through and pulled my leg restraint up and got ready for another great ride. The operator would check to see that I was comfortable in my restraint and then move on to the next car. Everyone was ready and we were off to the chain lift, I allways watched the friction wheels as I approached the lift. On the lift I looked at the Eifel Tower and Days of Thunder and how high up I was, it allways seemed a lot higher than it was. At the top I read the "Please Keep Feet Flat On Floor At All Times" and checked out the lightnin rod. Around the turn to the drop and bam, instant air time all the way down the drop straight into the loop, I could see the car in front of me get really close to my face, a truely awesome site! Up the first bunny hill, more excellent air time and right into a near vertical banked helix. I allways tried to pick my feet up but it was preatty much impossible. Now it was time for the second bunny hill, again great airtime! The best part of the ride was next the Trick Track, out of no where we banked to the left and then centered out an went up the second to last turn. After the turn we dropped again getting more air, then it was two small bunny hills giving more air! We slammed into the brakes ending our great ride and then entered the station. I got out of my restraint, rejoyced my excellent ride and went out the exit. As I walked to Action Zone the other train roared out of the helix and passed me. I left King Cobra and went back into it's line for another great ride. That's why I love King Cobra and it will allways be my favorite coaster! Favorite Flat Ride : Shake Rattle And Roll The first time I rode this ride it scared the crap out of me, the incredable air time made me think I was going to fall out. Once I worked up the courage to ride it again I got hooked. Wlaking down it's queuee I love seeing the cars get right next to you then whizz off, a great thing to see. Once on the ride I get in to Orange # 2 (Of Course) and feel the car swing and sway. The comfortable seats are a great plus too. Time for the lap bar to come down and make it's signature electrocuteing noise lol. The operator comes by and checks all the lap bars and then gives the signal. Now if you have a good operator they will buzz the bell with a little diddy! Orange car #2 revs up and I'm off flying under the arm and progressivly getting higher. Enter the Rodeo, I place my right hand on the hand rail and throw my left up high lean back and yell "Rodeo!"! Magnificant air time all the way through and looking at the ground while at the top is excellent too. The cars start to lower and eventually stop, the restaints "Electrify" and I walk off Orange # 2 till my next ride. That's why Shake Rattle And Roll is my favorite Flat Ride!
