I didn't know how feasible this would be as the rollercoasters need to be stripped and checked like badger said and they need to be maintained.

Re: Rita - Queen of Speed

As soon as you turn that corner by hex you are greeted by an amazing air time hill and the screams of joy! The Anticipation sitting in that seat, watching the lights... starts with orange... then reds... then green and GO GO GO!!! The speed and whole ride is incredible!! A must ride

Nemesis because of what its done for alton.

Plus the themeing around the ride and the queue spreading fear all around you (first time riders that is :P ) and the ride experiance. I mean come on people that live next to cedar point and have gone on all 17 rides there wish they could go on nemesis!
