Yes, there are 2-seater chairs on each of the 4 corners of this structure. You are raised up to the top and then dropped!

The key word there is YOU, cause it's not going to be ME!



Great picture....love the blue in the sky. A perfect day for someone else to ride that one.

Boily, are you kidding? I could easily drop $100 there and wait in line for hours. Truth is, tho, I'm a 'scairdy cat' and can thing of better thinks to do with my money (a new filter?). So, I shot this outside the park (best vantage point, anyway). Admittedly, I did go on some of those rides a few years back -- but only on a dare from my wife.

Great photo. Do they leave the flag up 24/7 or does someone climb up there every morning and raise the flag.

If so, I would NOT want the job.:?

Good question, Chuck. I've never noticed it at night...but I will now.

Probably some teenage thrill seeker would volunteer to raise and take it down daily, just for the free ride.
