The Haunt is here

All around the world theme parks have unleashed this years haloween celebration. Including activities for all ages. The little ones can enjoy activities during the day and the more brave and older crowd can gather enough courage to walk through the parks many terrifying haunted houses. Many great reviews have been posted of parks like Knotts, Universal Studios, and Busch Gardens. So if you live near a park with a Haunt celebration I recommend a trip or at least a night visit.

Prowler Review

     The Prowler is a 80 foot tall wooden GCI roller coaster. In 2009 it was rated the best new ride of the year beating out rides like Diamondback and Saw. This year it was ranked the number ten wooden roller coaster in the world.
      You climb into the two across comfortable and cushy millennium flyer trains. Pull down the lap bar and wait for the all clear not sure of what to expect because most of the ride is hidden in the woods. As you climb the the hill you get a glimpse of whats to come and the beautiful woods and park. As you crest the hill you see the track twist below you. The track roars as you hurtle down the first drop. But before you hit the ground you pull up into  the twisted hill you fly through the structure and are off into the woods in a layout meant to reflect the Beast. In a series of twists, turns and bunny hills you fly near the ground as the trains try and buck you off. Finally you do a last twist by the lift hill and hit the brakes.
     Overall it is an amazing roller coaster and deserves its rank. My final rating is a solid 9.5. And would definitely recommend a stop at Worlds of Fun.

Roller Coaster of the Week #1 Dare Devil Dive

      There are thousands of roller coasters all over the U.S. I'm here to talk about them every week.          
                             Notice: I have not rode all of these roller coasters
                               Dare Devil Dive

      Dare Devil Dive is a Gerstlauer euro fighter dive coaster. They are known for their vertical lift and beyond vertical drop. It is 95" tall and reaches a top speed of 52 mph. It boasts a 95 degree drop, an immelmann, a diving loop, and a heartline roll. Dare Devil Dive is the first euro fighter to have lap restraints. I don't know if euro fighters head bang but, Dare Devil Dive seems to be the most smooth. This is definitely a roller coaster I would like to ride. Random Fact: Dare Devil Dive's name was inspired by a Bugs Bunny cartoon.
