 Review of American Flyers @ Lake Compounce
3 Rating Posted by: adriahna on 8/2/2004 3:39:00 PM
A violent slap in the face to any fanatic of the Flying Scooter - this is just a boring, castrated mess. First off, the sails are clipped, as compared to the earlier Bisch-Rocco examples (Knoebels, Paramounts Carowinds, etc). Secondly, cables have been added to the car mechanisms to prevent snapping. Also, the rudders are limited by a stopper. Finally, the death blow - the ride is painfully slow. As a result, although it is certainly pretty to look at, the ride is rather useless, relegated to kiddie status. With all the skill I could possibly muster, there was not a snap to be had. Sigh.

Oh, man - Im just now re-reading this review, and I think its hilarious, and says a whole lot about this ride, that such a nasty review has two "good" votes. I guess I just put it right...

I gave you a good vote and then knocked my rating down. I rode early in the summer before hitting a lot of other parks and these were to worst Flying Scooters

As sad as it is, your review is 100% accurate. This ride doesnt do anything but take up space. Hard to believe they were actually fun once upon a time...
