 Review of Ravine Flyer II @ Waldameer Park
3 Rating Posted by: coaster05 on 6/4/2008 9:29:00 AM
My most anticipated ride of the year and the first new ride I have truly been excited for since Voyage. RFII does not dissapoint. I still prefer Voyage by a little, but I have not got to ride that since Holliwood nights and I believe it could be in for a fall. APPEARANCE-10 I love how you can only see the lifthill from the main part of the park. It not only builds excitiement for the ride it also keeps the traditional feel of the park in tact. CAPACITY-7 They did a great job when I was there, but with 2 trains the ride would almost be a walk on. RIDE QUALITY-10 Very fast, great air, great turns, great scenary and just intense enough that you can still ride all day. FUN-10 This is how coasters should be. An excellent ride that delivers on everything and fits in with the park. Its rides like this at parks like this that make me hate places like Cedar Point. I also feel that this is a "true" small park not like HW. RERIDE-10 It is so good that I am ready to make the 5 hour plus drive back to Erie to go again. OVERALL-47 AVG-9.4 I will go with the 10 because with 2 train operations this thing will have no flaws. This was my third visit to the park and I have to say it is in that rare group where each visit seems to make the park better. I have really seen this park grow with some nice additions in the last 5 years and I hope that is a trend that continues.

Yep. Great little park. All three of their coasters are fun (not counting the kiddie). Of course, Ravine Flyer II is far and away the star of the park now and its exactly what they needed, a real stand out ride. The dark ride is always worth a ride and theyve got a very respectable collection of flats.

High praise indeed from a reliable source. Time to pour some $4-a-gallon liquid gold into the ol Ford and head north.

Traver, you out there? Up for a little drive sometime soon?

Great review. Ill be hitting Waldameer June 20th --- Im stoked. Is RFII a backseat ride, or does it deliver in most seats?

o spit, yes, after i drank my tea this morning i looked into the leaves, and i think i saw a POV of this ride.

I prefered backseat, but it also offered a very good front seat ride also. I was able to avoid the middle mostly, but I am sure that was solid as well.
