The Astroland Cyclone has officially been added to the list.
Germany in Brooklyn.
So while we rode lots of fun coasters yesterday, there’s a couple that stand out in my mind this morning.
Skyrush: This was intense! Reminds me of the first time I rode Apollo’s Chariot. I of course picked one of the seats hanging from the edge of the coaster where you see the ground 200ft below. But where Apollo glides nice and smooth over giant hills, Skyrush rockets over them while you just hang on for dear life. Awesomeness.
Lightning Racer: Wood coasters are always hit or miss with me (I think I have bruises to this day from Gwazi) but this one was so much fun! Like the name implies, you race the train next to you. But where Gwazi fails, this one succeeds…the trains are so close, careening up, over and beside each other that you really feel you’re in a battle to the finish.
I added a lot of new coasters to my list today, though there were definitely a few standouts above the rest. Glad I was able to finally make the trip up to Hershey, PA…it’s been a long time coming.
