New for the 2015 season, Cedar Point transformed their notoriously painful stand-up coaster, Mantis, into a floorless experience. Named Rougarou, the finished product was themed after a werewolf from French folklore. During my trip to Cedar Point last week, I was eager to try out the supposedly much smoother coaster.
After just reopening last year, Kentucky Kingdom has already gotten to a good start to make their park worth visiting again. Last week, the park announced their new-for-2016 roller coaster, Storm Chaser. By the looks of it, the ride will be a great addition to the park.
Ever since Carowinds announced their record-breaking Giga Coaster last fall, I've been anticipating its opening. Finally, I made it to the park last week to check it out. Believe me, I "felt the sting."
