    They don’t have a snazzy name for it. They just call it the Roller Coaster.

    But Cedar Point (Sandusky, OH.) is still the Roller Coaster Mecca of the United States. Haven’t been there is some time, but used to go there every year or two, just to ride the coasters.

    Last coaster I rode I think I literally popped a blood vessel in my brain. New Roller coasters have gone extreme.

    Weighing 75 lbs would be pretty cool, I could probably jump 10 feet high…

    I don’t know if it’s true, but some people claim that the roller coaster at Lagoon, in Farmington, Utah is the oldest wooden roller coaster in North America. It was built in 1921.
    “Lagoon” is mentioned in the Beach Boys song Salt Lake City.

    Kennywood Park, located outside of Pittsburgh PA in West Mifflin, is home to three very old wooden roller coasters. The Jack Rabbit and Racer must be in their 90s. The Thunderbolt is about 43. Great rides.

    Actually, that occurred in the sequel, “Smokey and the Bandit 2”.
