Millennium force at Cedar Point

DSC03442Standing at over 300ft Millennium force dominates the skyline at Cedar Point in Ohio. The one time world record breaking coaster standing at an impressive 310ft has riders gasping in awe as they stare up at the huge skybound lift hill whilst waiting in the queue to ride.

I was fortunate enough to ride Millennium force a number of times during a visit to Cedar Point in 2007, we counted about 6 or 7 rides during our visit. After those experiences Millennium force dropped straight in at the number one spot as my favourite coaster.

Mantis at Cedar Point

DSC03524Built in 1996, Mantis is one of the tallest and fastest stand-up scream machines in the world.

Built by Bolliger and Mabillard (B & M) Mantis is another unique ride experience at Cedar Point. Guests board stand up trains and fly down a 145-foot-tall first hill at a top speed of 60 mph.

This stand-up roller coaster turns riders upside down a total of four times, includes a 137-foot drop at a 52 degree angle.

Kennywood trip report

undefinedEver since I watched the Kennywood memories DVD ive wanted to visit this park, im a great fan of traditional parks and my favourite park in the UK is as traditional as they get Pleasure Beach Blackpool.The Pleasure beach and Kennywood management have had a relationship going back many years and when I was researching some materials at the pleasure beach the correspondance between the two parks backed this up.Another reason for me visiting Kennywood was to see the only other Noahs Ark attraction in the world which is based at Kennywood.

Kennywood is located in Pittsburgh.
