A boring, but historical ride.

* add an extra 5 points for historical significance.

Not the biggest, fastest, tallest, or most exciting – just the oldest in existence – and a side friction coaster to boot. Take a seat in a car that is closer in comfort to a big easy chair than a thrill ride. Figure eight track and gentle leaps and dips take you on a ride your great-granny might have loved 100 years ago.

Easy to rate a 10 because it is the best in its category and a historically significant ride that was beautifully restored. The-side-to side bouncing gives it a distinct ride and the little wooshy dips do provide surprising air, proving its not speed and length that give air but rather track design. The Coaster has its own gift shop as well as three picture options-color, black and white or sepia. Best of all, you can ride it all day for $2.50, as its fare is charged seperate from the rest of the park admission. Another hint about Lakemont Park--they had a Community Picnic on Labor Day. All you can ride and eat for $5. Theyve also done this on Memorial Day. Make a note to see if they do this event in 2003! Add $5 to the $2.50 all day Dips pass and you can ride and eat all day for $7.50.

This coaster should be required riding for every coaster fan. It is the oldest as well as the only remaining side friction figure eight left. It is also a fun ride. This little old coaster actually gets some air on the dips, and can get some good speed with a loaded car. The cars have a classic configuration, no dividers, no lap belts, no even a lap bar. It really isnt needed. This is no thriller, but it really isnt fair to compair it to a modern coaster either.

This coaster enjoyment factor is in its history. It is not that thrilling but you have to ride it because of its history.

As well, I believe it needs points. The oldest coaster in the world celebrates 100 years, nothing comes close. Not very thrilling adreniline-wise but a thrill to behold. I gave it a 9 and its well deserved, lets see where Millenium Force is in a century!?!

Now this is a good nostalgic ride. Its the only thing in this park that isnt an eyesore! The spledid side-to-side jostling of the classic side friction design is enjoyable. No restraints and some cool little bunny hills provide for a good ride, not just for nostalgic reasons. It was my 75th coaster, not a bad one either.

Not a very thrilling ride but I do appreciate its historical significance so I think it deserves a 10

Beautifully restored, it gets a 7 mostly for history. Despite the small size of the dips, they can snap your neck, depending on where you sit and the number of riders. The shimmying due to the short length of the cars and the fact that it is a side friction coaster gives it a unique ride.
