    Can not believe we have not seen the video of what really happened at the Sugar Bowl.

    That is, that a Yellow Jacket stung Bevo so he would attack ugag.

    Or is it because you are just older?

    I don’t think so, or else you’d think all the other coasters would also seem rougher.

    You have to ask?
    Thanks for that. Some of those earlier, old photos sure bring back memories. My dad was a local architect and one Sunday all seven of us climbed into the Chevy station wagon and took a ride out to the Six Flags construction site. It was the Sunday that Tony Cloninger, the Braves pitcher, hit two grand slams in the same game. We heard both of them on the radio.

    I actually used to like the Viper a lot, with its instant acceleration and essentially no line

    My stepson and I, years ago, stayed on the Viper for something like 10 straight rides - until we got bored and moved along. Just stayed in our seat

    Didn't they change the name of Viper right before they tore it down to make room for Superman? or am I mis-remembering?

    I want to know more about this. How is such a thing possible?

    They just turned the trains around so you sat facing backward.

    Oh. I was envisioning something much less possible.
