a major new attraction at a park that's an easy day trip for me, it
took me quite a bit of time to get around to trying it. The reason
for this is obvious. I'd already ridden Edge at Paultons Park when
it opened the year before this, so a copy of the exact same ride
wasn't that high a priority. This does me wonder why they went with
this ride, it's not as if there aren't other rides that could have
been substituted as the signature attraction of the Wild Asia area,
that aren't already at a nearby park.
For the uninitiated this is a Disk-O Coaster, a variant of the very
popular Disk-O rides, that have popped up in amusement parks around
the country. It sees you sitting facing outwards on a giant disc.
During the ride the disc spins and moves back and forth along a
section of track. Unlike a regular Disk-O with a short section of
track, this version has a much longer section of track, that
includes a bump in the middle.
I've heard complaints about this ride being on a short ride program.
This is not something I had a problem with when I visited, although
this was on a quiet day when the rides were a walk on.
