Sure, Woodstock Express is a family coaster, but you know what? Its a good one! Its silly to me to rate a coaster like this on the same plane as the adult coasters, because they werent designed for huge thrills in the first place. This coaster is the anchoring ride in the parks Camp Snoopy kids area, and it provides a very fun ride that adults can certainly enjoy while younger kids will be thrilled at "conquering" a coaster that, from their perspective, is rather formidable. Woodstock Express is a Roller Skater model from Vekoma, and it boasts a rather impressive 40-foot height (in terms of kid coasters anyway) along with a top speed of 25 mph. If Jr. Gemini is the "first step" for budding coaster enthusiasts, then Woodstock Express is a nicely placed step-up to a level just below the likes of some of the parks smaller adult coasters. The train looks nice, and the ride has a good opening little drop followed by some quick turns and a pretty good helix. The train moves at a decent clip while navigating the cool layout, which is massive by kiddie coaster standards, filled with another dip and some more twists and turns. Kids adore this coaster, and it is nice that the park put in a "bigger" kid coaster for them to enjoy, while also making it comfy and smooth for the adults to ride as well. Watching the kids laugh and throw their hands up on this is really what its all about, and it never fails to make me smile. So, for me, with his good little coaster thats rather fun, Woodstock flies to the upper levels of the junior/kiddie/family coaster genre.

Nice roller skater thats better than most. The ride had a few added turns and was a bit taller, though it didnt make that big of a difference. Still the twists were fun and the helix as always was decent and the ride is very smooth.

Just another skater, but this one had the added annoyance of the seatbelt locks. Not that this coaster could probably operate without the seatbelts anyways, stupid Cedar Point

This is a great ride for kids, if they arent too afraid too get on it becuase its pretty tall for a kiddie coaster, but they will probably have a blast! Its actually fun for everyone.

Decent kiddy coaster, however the seatbelt situation and slow loading times is a true pain. Each seatbelt had to be opened by the ride operator which resulted in a much longer line than I bargained for in getting this cheap coaster count

Even though Jr. Gemini was my first coaster experience, I wished this one existed back in 1986.

My only complaint is how can you paint it beige and the only reference to Woodstock is on the front train. Add some color to the track and put Snoopy in a world war I plane somewhere. Pretty basic coaster, but I have to score it behind those that actually do something with the theme.

Like Scott I rode it for the credit, but at least I was with my neice. LOL. Definitely better than the atrocitities that Zierer builds and Six Flags installs with no theming for families.

Wow. Its pretty funny that these vekoma kiddie coasters are the only good rides they make! Well, I did this one for the credit, but it wasnt a bad ride. Its been cloned a few times which brings the rating down. Its still a good starting ride for kids. They dont know its been cloned.
