As part of their National Roller Coaster Day festivities, California’s Great America commissioned arguably one of the best tongue-in-cheek social media videos this year: a celebration of their 1999 Miler Kiddie Coaster, Lucy’s Crabbie Cabbies.
Enjoy the hilarity (be sure to look at the titles) and well done, CGA!
My sister shared these photos with me yesterday – as one of my nieces was feeling a bit crafty and created her own “roller coaster.” So naturally, I had to share them with all of you!
According to the “lead engineer,” – who’s still in elementary school – the ride is very advanced, and senses who’s aboard and adjusts the intensity based on the age group. So, if a baby is aboard – it’ll move at a crawl. And in the middle of the ride? Well, it stops to let passengers off to pet the dog.
Are all your cutes overloaded, yet?
If a group of teenagers on it – the ride will sense this as well – and go “super fast.” Also, the dog petting will be bypassed.
Oh, to be young…not only at heart, huh? Great job on the coaster, Shelby – keep it up and someday you’ll be working with tubular steel!
