Its a very good tivoli coaster. Ripsaw was very well themed as it interacted well with the surrounding landscape. While there werent too many drops, this was certainly a fun coaster with some good helixes and it was quite long too. Certainly one of the best family coasters out there.
*Yawn* - Nothing very exciting here. A bunch of turns taken at about 15 miles per hour. Its a little odd that the ride has individual lap bars for an undivided seat, but I carefully set both bars on my seat to the same level. As with all of the rides at Camp Snoopy except the Ferris wheel, the entrance is on the malls lower level, but the ride platform is up at the second level. The first lift carries the long train into the treetops...yes, treetops; this is a lushly landscaped park. It winds around a bit, lacking in significant drops. Not too exciting, now, okay? The second lift shares a tunnel with the log flume, a tunnel which hides the coasters maintenance shed and storage track for the second train. A bit more of a swooping course brings the train back to the platform. Its no major thrill machine, but rather a coaster for all ages and a very nice scenic tour of the park. 7/10
When I visited the park it was called Ripsaw. It is a steel sit down scenic railway coaster built by Zierer in 1992, it is 60' tall, 2,680' long. It gives a nice view of the park and it has scenery also. Good ride capacity only one train running. Very smooth and a long ride around the park. Rerideable and alot of fun.
A neat coaster that weaves throughout the entire park, making it visible from everywhere, which was cool. The ride wasnt much, just some turns and slight drops, but it was enjoyable. No roughness to speak of and a few of the helices produced some nice Gs. Rolling through the log flume was really neat and the whole ride just fit perfectly. A very good job of turning a fairly standard coaster into an interesting machine
Excellent for the family and with the long trains it has better capacity than most family rides.
Even though its a smaller coaster, I still had a fun time riding around the park and waving at people on the ground.
By far the pinnacle of the family coaster group. It has length that no other family will probably ever touch. APPEARANCE-10 It goes all around the park and it really pulls the park together. Plus you go through a cave and around so many rides. CAPACITY-7 Just one train causes a decent wait but when I was there it was still only a one train wait. RIDE QUALITY-8 Very smooth with some good speed in the corners a long ride (2500+ feet) helps. FUN-9 I really enjoyed it and rode five times just a fun way to see the park. RERIDE-10 You just have to go each time since it previews the park like a train. OVERALL-44 AVG-8.8 I will give it a 9 since it is such a good family coaster. If you have a chance to stay til close at this park I would recomend it since they let naturallight take over and it makes it hard to believe you are indoors.
OK, Im not apt to give Zierer/Tivolis high scores but this one is longer and more fun than most and its gets my highest score for a Zierer/Tivoli. It interacts with the other rides and the trees very well. The cars are small but so am I. Its just a fun coaster.
Good for a mall coaster but way boring. It is pretty cool how it goes all around the park but Id take Timberland Twister over this anyday.
Nothing super exciting about this ride but still good. Although it is lacking in any good drops, speed, or airtime, it provides a nice relaxing ride with a great view that fits Camp Snoopys demographic perfectly. It is also one of the few coasters you can ride in the dead of winter thats in one of the Great Lake states.
I say it was a great view of the park. Its fun to wave at the people below.
Its great in the front or back. Wish there were steep drops.
