 Review of Columbia Carousel @ Six Flags Great America

Overrated piece of crap - thats my thoughts on the ride. From a distance, it looks really cool. It dominates the entrance plaza and really is a great focal point, something you remember years later. Being double decker was cool, something I have never actually ridden (I merely watched the triple decker at IAAPA last year). Once I board, I am forced to put on the seatbelt. LAME, but I will move on. The machine starts going, and takes its sweet time to get up to speed. Well, thats what I thought at least... fact is that its top speed is slower than my walking speed, which is absolutely pathetic. A machine can only gain so many points on looks alone, which, also werent as good as billed. Upon closer inspection while riding, the pieces were in *decent* condition. The machine definately needs some cosmetic work, but I think the paramount concern for now is changin operations. To go that slow is just ludicrous, and then they slap a belt on you like some toddler? Talk about insulting..

Excellent review. I agree. Overrated piece of crap! This is just a silly and pointless ride. Lets name an entire area of the park after this.
