Let me start by asking is it true are they getting rid of these at pki. APPEARANCE-10 they look very sharp and well maintained the ride also has trees around it a must for a good scooter ride. RIDE QUALITY-7 just way too short you only get about 8 full circles at top spped, definately lacking on knoebels. the other ride aspects are all good. CAPACITY 8- decent for this size scooter but they should enforce the 2 people per car thing. they let too many single riders in. FUN-9 cant be a ten because it just wasnt long enough. good snapping quality just no time. RERIDE-10 If its there according to coaster buzz these are on there way out, that makes no sense since they are so much better then some other flats. OVERALL 44 AVG 8.8 so give it the 9 they would be as good as knoebels if you could ride as long.

Snapping this ride becomes really adictive, and is a great thrill.

When I first saw the ride I was like"what the hech is that!?"Then my dad explaned it to me and he showed me how to steer the bird with the rutter and it was fun.

Without a doubt, one of the best rides ever. Especially cool in that the riders piloting determines the intensity of the experience. Might not look like much but, whoa, if youre good, I mean REALLY GOOD, youll find yourself hating waiting through winter.

See the instructions my sister and I left in response to another entrant. She called me the Sultan o Snap. Im so proud! This ride is a wonderful throwback to the simpler, often more innovative and exhilirating ways of amusement parks past.

Hot Diggity!!! What a great ride - I cant say enough. Maybe it gets a little extra breeze from the Vortex, but this Flying Scooter really gets going - before I moved away from Cincinnati, I was on this ride at least a few times a week, and could get the car snapping in about half a minute. I miss it so much! And by the way, this ride is way scarier than most roller coasters - its all in how well you steer n snap. Have fun!

EDIT: Well, at first I gave it a 7 and said it was the 3rd best flat in the park, over the summer I learned how to snap, and boy the difference! I had to ride it every time I visitied the park. Such a great flat ride!

A ride that can give you any sensation you want just by the way you control it. You can keep your wing straight and have a nice easy soar or you can steer it and airbrake it into a wild ride that actually scares veteran thrill seekers.

This is the second oldest ride at PKI and is possibly the best!
