Coaster Mayhem V (WOF)


Welcome to Coaster Mayhem 2010 at Worlds of Fun

Morning ERT was on PATRIOT

It was running great today

Next we headed to MAMBA

We had a great time on this hypercoaster

Short lines made for lots of rerides

As part of Coaster Mayhem, we got drink wristbands.  
They sure came in handy during the day

We took a spin on Boomerang next.

One lap was more than enough

The group wanted to ride Timber Wolf so went there next

As part of Mayhem, we get ERT on Wacky Worm
You can't usually ride this without a kid

Lunch was great like normal - afterwards they had a Q&A session

They also gave away lots of neat things

Here is what these two ended up with

Next we checked out the Worlds of Fun History Museum

Looking at some of the old maps

Orient Express wheel

That's a big old nut

 It was neat to see all the old stuff

After lunch we went and checked out Spinning Dragons

Fast forward to the evening

Yep, we wanted to ride the horsey ride

Le Carrousel was just the start of our night

We checked out the new Hot Summer Lights experience

Night ERT was on PROWLER

It felt completely out of control tonight.  What an awesome experience.
Thanks for a great day Worlds of Fun

Kings Dominion

Welcome to Kings Dominion

First ride of the day would be Dominator

This B&M floorless coaster dominates the front of the park

Woodstock's Express

Time to ride Boo Blasters - a Sally shooter ride

The Crypt

Volcano: the Blast Coaster

I love how the volcano actually erupts fire before the coaster launches

This is by far my favorite coaster here


Flight of Fear - indoor launched coaster


Time to ride Intimidator 305

This is a very large coaster designed by Intamin

The coaster starts off with a very high drop and then a brown out curve

The coaster is very fast, but not necessarily fun

It's almost too much

Backlot Stunt Coaster

Drop (Zone) Tower

Americana Ferris Wheel

Rebel Yell racing wooden coaster

El Diablo



Flying Eagles

The Grizzly

Shenandoah Lumber Company

Let's take a look around from the Eiffel Tower

There's my favorite coaster at the park

Had a great time at Kings Dominion today
