 Review of Tree Top Racers @ Adventure City
3 Rating Posted by: biosciking on 12/15/2005 5:32:00 PM
A very old-fashioned steel wild mouse coaster, the Tree Top Racers deliver a fun ride to both novice kids visiting Adventure City and coaster enthusiasts alike. The cars seat one or two people (one in front of the other) and chug their way up the lift hill pretty loudly. The whole ride is actually quite noisy, like a trash can rolling and bouncing down a hill, but I guess thats part of the rides charm. The ride begins with about four or five unbanked switchbacks typical of a wild mouse. They are executed reasonably slowly so they dont totally give the effect of the car ready to hop the track. However, you then hit the drops, and this is where the ride really became fun and exciting. You pick up a good amount of speed on the drops, so that when you hit the next turns, it sure does feel like you are either going to go flying off into the park or out onto Beach Boulevard. The second series of drops take place right underneath the first, and I defy anyone to not duck their head the first time around. A warped little spiral finishes the ride before popping up into the brake run. Despite the herky-jerky motions of the ride, the cars were padded, roomy enough especially for a single rider, and quite comfortable. Adventure City is definitely a kiddie park, but, aside from the Tree Top Racers, there is a small but effective drop tower and a quite dizzying spinning balloon ride that are appropriate for everyone. Worth a stop also as its right down the street from Knotts Berry Farm.
