I remember when The Scream Machine first came out and was the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in the world at a grand 95 feet high. In the late 70's early 80's you might have to wait hours to ride. Sometimes, they'd stamp your hand with a time to come back to ride.
If that is the Chiropractor’s dream come true, then the old Georgia Cyclone was for neuro and orthopedic spine surgeons. That damned thing felt like a 3 minute car wreck.
I never had a problem with the ninja, it was always operational, felt smooth to me, and had very short lines. Deja Vu was one that was constantly broken down/stuck, and they tore it down a number of years ago and put a little kids area in its place.I haven't been in years, but it seemed like the Ninja was always either broken down or getting stuck in a really bad spot for an extended period of time.

I grew up in NW Ga and we have Lake Winnepesaukah. That place has been open mostly since the 1940s I believe.I don't suppose many here went to, or remember, FunTown.
Sweet mother of pearl.
Since our eager, lil kid hands were already grasping paid tickets to the Tilt A Whirl we were going to ride it come he'll or high water. Well, they both came.
And all the Dads herded us screaming brats into the machine like cattle on a drive. A 5 cent ticket was harder to pay for those days and it would not go to waste.
The parents ran to the shelter of the station wagons as us kids rode The Whirl in a driving rain storm - screaming from the thrill of the ride combined with the yellow jacket like sting of each raindrop.
Ah, yes. Good times.
