a clasic ptc coaster. with a little old fashoned speed. i love the old ptc trains and ride set up. even the fact it lacks fin breaks. the layout is simlar to other ptc coaster but in my view when their this old even a clone gives a differnt ride. and what a great centerpiece to have for over 70 years.

This 1927 built coaster provides much more than just nostalgia. The well conceived layout provides both exciting turns and nice little pops of air time over its course. Like any good woodie it feels faster than it really is. Watch out for the back however, it tends to be very rough.

WC gives a pretty good ride, considering its the oldest operating coaster in New England. The drop is more exciting than it looks and there are occasional pops of airtime, particularly on the bunny hops toward the end of the ride. Occasionally the brakes fail and the train just sails right through the station and back toward the lift hill, to the delight of the riders and to the disgust of those waiting in line. Try to avoid the back unless you like really rough rides.

The first time I rode this coaster it kicked my butt. It cracked my back and made the seatbelt come undone, it was amazing. The second time, sadly, was not as rough. Pretty good for an older wooden coaster, nice layout.

This little woodie is packed with charm and fun - a classic older Schmeck. Its surprisingly quick at times, and even provides a bit of airtime here and there. It reminds me of the sort of gentlemanly demeanor that Rye Playlands Dragon has - just a little more aggressive. Definitely worth a ride, and give it a run in the back seat if possible - it gets a little crazy back there!!!

Suprisingly good. From the midway, this ride doesnt look like much. However, the speed isnt bad, its very smooth, and you do get little bits of airtime throughout. Not nearly as good as the Dash but the recent re-tracking must have done this old ride wonders.

More fun than I had anticipated, this older wooden coaster has quite a bit of zip and good airtime, especially for riders in the back seat.

just an average coaster. not fast, not very rough, only a little airtime. Would be much better if it did not slow to a practical stop on the last turnaround before the two bunny hills

I dont know why this ride gets such a bad rap. I for one enjoy the fact that you get thrown around by the ride, if adds so much more to it. Where it may lack in speed it gains back in thrills. The turns the hills and the beating you get from this is certainly great.

I grew up riding this old wooden coaster. It never fails to disappoint. While it is a bit bumpy, one has to realize that it was built in 1927, a time when a rough ride was highly accepted.(Remember, the Crystal Beach Cyclone was so rough that their was a nurse stationed on the platform to tend to injured riders!)A ride on this coaster is the following: the first drop is a 78 foot plunge all the way to the ground followed by a climb into a left fan curve, across a few bunny hills, into another fan turn this time to the right, leading into two low level hills, a flat turn to the right, over a final speedbump, and into the break-run. A classic ride which gets the job done.
