I finally got around to posting some pictures of roller coasters that I've ridden. At this point, I've still got a some photo's to upload like pictures from the Sweetest Park on earth, Hershey Park, another PA park and a couple of parks from Virginia.

 

My favorite Wood coaster is The Beast at King's Island located approximately 20 miles north of Cincinnati, Ohio in Kings Mill.

 

The Beast is nestled in the woods of the park. The only part visible from the ground is the top of the first lift hill. Even from the top level of the 1/3rd scale version of the Eiffel Tower all you can see is the first lift hill and the helix. The park made effective use of the terrain in building it. At 7400 feet in length it's quite a ride, especially after dark. There's very little lighting so it makes for a nice dark ride.

 

King's Island is also know as the park with first's. They built the first suspended coaster, The Bat, the first standup coaster, King Cobra.

Funny you should mention a calender, Dan. I too got one for Christmas from a friend. The one I got has a beautiful winter shot of Dorney Park and a shot of The Voyage going thru one it's 90 degree banked curves.
