Numbers: 2,3,8. I want a ride like Deliruim, and Slegdehammer at PGA and PCW.

If they should get another roller coaster, I would want it to be something like a dueling launched floorless or dueling launched invert. A wooden twister where the whole layout cannot be seen in plain view would be nice, but we don't really have enough trees to do so. I'm not a really huge fan of flat rides, but I do agree that the park is in dire need of more flats. I wouldn't mind seeing one of those slingshot rides put in.

As far as Coasters... I'd like to see Paramount bring back a Shuttle Coaster like we had in <a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery667.htm' target='_blank'><span style='color:white'>WHITE LIGHTNING</span></a>! The best Shuttle out there right now IMHO is <a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1571.htm' target='_blank'><span style='color:gold'>WICKED TWISTER</span></a> There's corkscrews at the top of either end! B)

Paramont already has Shuttle Coasters at several of their Parks! <a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery473.htm' target='_blank'><span style='color:#33CCCC'>INVERTIGO</span></a> at Paramount's Great America, <a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery530.htm' target='_blank'><span style='color:red'>FACE/OFF</span></a> at Paramount's Kings Island, but <a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery637.htm' target='_blank'><span style='color:olive'>KING KOBRA</span></a> at Paramount's Kings Dominion and <a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery75.htm' target='_blank'><span style='color:#6699CC'>GREASED LIGTHNIN'</span></a> at Paramount's Great America are almost identical to the late great White Lightning! They could reuse that name and bring back a very popular ride IMO!

As far as other type rides...I'd like them to bring in some old favs like a Zipper, my 13 year old daughter would love to see some swings like they have at the Pavilion at Myrtle Beach (bigger than the kiddie swing Carowinds removed!), Octopus, gondola type skyway ride, I'd like to see a monorail with more than one station to move people around the park, etc! I think older type rides would do well and coexist with the newer generation of amusement rides!

Greezed Lightnin was removed from Paramount's Great America in 2002. It is now owned by Anton Schwarzkopf's son.

Also, White Lightnin and King Kobra were weight-drop Shuttle Loops, The Greezed Lightning clones were Flywheels.

King Kobra was removed from Kings Dominion in 1986, a year before White Lightnin.

Greased Lightning at PGA and SFKK are weight drops. PGA's Greased Lightnin is just parts for the one at SFKK. SIX FLAGS brought it, and that is why it is in the SFMW parking lot.

That too, I miss that. October 10, 1988 to be exact!
By Dukeis#1

According to rcdb, it's October 16, 1988. I visited in '87 but did not return until 90 or 91. That was before I really got hooked on parks and such.

Talking about shuttles, has anybody ridden Viper at SFOG, it was one of the Schwarzkoph shuttles. It was very nicely themed, but it was taken out a year or two ago.

I never rode White Lightning, is viper similar?
By Dukeis#1
#1193
They are both Weight Drop models. The only real differance between the two is Viper was built later than White Lightnin, so the supports and equipment used on it is more advanced.

<a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery39.htm?Picture=2' target='_blank'>Tidal Wave/Viper's Loop</a>

<a href='http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery667.htm?Picture=3' target='_blank'>White Lightnin's/Golden Loop's Loop</a>

Same expierience in a different location.
