 Review of Cedar Downs Racing Derby @ Cedar Point
2 Rating Posted by: papa1958 on 9/11/2006 1:36:00 PM
This is a wonderful and unique park attraction that is in fine condition. It has a sister attraction "The Derby Racer" at Playland in Rye, New York. Although, the Cedar Point version runs MUCH slower than "The Derby Racer," the Ceder Point version has a leg up because the "racing" feature still works that allows you to simulate that you are competing against the other horses in your row. As I state in my review of "The Derby Racer," it is worth a special trip to Cedar Point and to Playland just to ride these rides. Perhaps Cedar Point should run the ride at slow speed during the day (as a family ride) and then at full speed at night (as a thrill ride). Here is MY top 10 carousels list: (1) Cedar Downs Racing Derby -- Cedar Point (2) Derby Racer -- Rye (NY) Playland (3) Carousel -- Rye (NY) Playland (4) Carousel -- Palisades Center Mall (West Nyack, NY) (5) Carousel -- Lake Compounce (Bristol, CT) (6) Carousel -- Flushing Meadows Park (Queens, NY) (7) Carousel -- Central Park, NY (8) Carousel -- Trimpers Amusements (Ocean City, MD) (9) Grand Carousel -- Columbus (OH) Zoo (10) Savage Gallopers Carousel -- Six Flags Great Adventure (Jackson, NJ).
