 Review of Leap-The-Dips @ Lakemont Park

I was utterly charmed by this unique, and deeply historic, little side-friction gem of a roller coaster. I was lucky enough to get the days first ride in, after enjoying a lengthy gander at the wonderful loading station (the little set of "stalls" in which extra cars wait their turn is really something), as well as the great displays focusing on Leap-the-Dips historic importance. The ride itself? Unlike anything else, to be honest. Picture sitting comfortably in a little couch, being pushed by hand onto a lift hill complete with wooden rollback bars, and then letting gravity pull you through a series of polite turns, with the occasional, assertive light-airtime dip thrown in for good measure. The coaster gains a bit of speed from time to time, and is actually surprisingly spicy at moments - I found myself laughing out loud at the sensations created by this rather wacky coaster, thats been hanging around since the centurys turn. Give or take a few years. Highly recommended - and yes, a total must-ride for coaster junkies.
