The best of the versions I rode out East but nowhere close to the versions I consider top notch(IB and MIA).

Funtown did a great job to take a normal swinging ship, and theme it. They placed it on a small pond, and have fountains around it.

Theme or no theme it is a pretty weak cycle.

How would I know I live in Indiana and I have been there once. It sucks compared to the one at IB or MIA. That is what I am saying.

OK you seem to remeber it suckign but why did it suck. thats more of what I was wondering.

Funtowns swinging ship didnt seem to run long, last time I went, the week before labor day. Before, it used to run for a long time, and give insane rides.

It does not produce the air or height of the other two. Sorry I hardly noticed how weak my review was.

Its okey, I understood, you werent too fond of this swinging ship.
mrceagle on 9/13/2005 4:21:29 PM said:
Ok that makes sence. so the slow ride and littel air brough you to your rating. thanks for the answer.

I hope Funtown makes the Sea Dragon give insane rides again, because it used to be a park favorite, and now people avoid it. Thats very depressing.

Even if it is sped up its stil a farly small ride.

The Sea Dragon isnt supposed to be an anchor attraction, it just has to compliment other rides, like Excalibur, Thunder Falls, Dragons Descent, and the Astrosphere.

True but havnign plain rides liek the YoYo dosnt add much to the park. honistly in time they shoudl replace the YoYo with a themed flyign carousel like Canobies and try to get away from teh carnival feel they have.
Canobie Coaster on 9/14/2005 5:05:06 PM said:
Most of their rides added in the 1980s and the early 1990s, were carnival flat rides. They need newer rides, that are more unique. Maybe replace the Sea Dragon with a newer swinging ship?
mrceagle on 9/15/2005 1:12:51 PM said:
The sea dragon isnt that old late 80s. the park itself is only 38 years old.
Canobie Coaster on 9/15/2005 2:51:02 PM said:
Oops. I think that Funtown should give their swinging ship more theming, to make it more exciting. If they do that, they could make the ride better.
mrceagle on 9/15/2005 5:48:16 PM said:
Why add themeing. you have carnival rides around it and excaliber behind it.
Canobie Coaster on 9/15/2005 5:49:29 PM said:
Maybe if they added theming to those rides, people would like them more.
mrceagle on 9/16/2005 11:22:00 AM said:
There standard rides and they get normal rider ship. its not like people are skiping them. not to metion themeing dont always mate a ride better. look at some of the rides at SFNE.
Canobie Coaster on 9/16/2005 6:32:53 PM said:
Yeah, these rides, like the Sea Dragon, are better than most of Six Flags New Englands flat rides. The Sea Dragon, actually gives riders long cycles, unlike some swinging ships, at other parks.
mrceagle on 9/19/2005 4:50:30 PM said:
I wasnt trying to straigt out bash SFNE. I was tryign to prove a point that themeing wont give a ride any more then it has. it may make it a bit more apealing but its ride depends on the park.
Canobie Coaster on 9/20/2005 4:16:15 PM said:
Yeah, because some parks dont need theming like Knoebels. Does this Sea Dragon, not have as much as a weightlessness feeling, as other swinging ships in New England?
mrceagle on 9/21/2005 4:05:12 PM said:
I did when I last went to this park back in 2003 find the ride to be a bit lacking in that feald. the ride was, at that time, prity fast and offered a long ride.
Canobie Coaster on 9/22/2005 6:24:15 AM said:
Now it is fairly slow, and doesnt swing as high, but it still gives a long ride.
mrceagle on 9/22/2005 3:57:08 PM said:
That only make s for an OK ride. if its dull a long ride realy wont do much for it.
Canobie Coaster on 9/24/2005 10:16:54 AM said:
Good point. Rides need to be very good, if they run long. Long, bad rides are torture.
