Best and Biggest Thrill Rides

There's no shortage of heart-stopping excitement in Orange County. If you live for the adrenaline rush, if you have the need for speed, you'll find it among the many fun rides throughout Orange County. Here's just a sampling of what you can experience in the OC.

Knott's Supreme Scream

Knott's Berry Farm keeps reinventing the big-G thrill ride and its Supreme Scream is no exception. Located on the park's boardwalk, this white knuckler lasts an adrenaline rushing 45 seconds and reaches speeds up 50 mph. The ride has separate Turbo Drop towers arranged in a triangular fashion. And being 312 feet tall, it's the tallest freestanding structure in Orange County. Seated in a carriage with 12 other brave souls, with your feet dangling beneath you, you ascend to a "nose-bleeding" height of 252 feet. After a momentary stop at the top, a quick blast of compressed air rockets you straight down in just three hair-curling seconds. Unlike traditional free-fall rides, which end after the drop, Supreme Scream takes thrills to a new level by rebounding each carriage back up the tower for a second drop. The sudden upward rebound creates a positive 4G-force, followed by a second free-fall. The ride ends with a number of smaller up and down bounces until your carriage comes to rest at the base of the tower.

Disney's California Screamin'

A classic up-down-sideways high speed thrill ride that has you hanging on for dear life, California Screamin' is a wood-mimicking steel roller coaster located at Disney's California Adventure park. Reaching a top speed of 62 miles per hour, it's the fastest ride at the Disneyland Resort and one of the fastest rides at any Disney theme park. In fact, it's pretty intense for a Disney park ride, with a power blast take off that accelerates you from zero to 55 miles per hour in a heady four seconds after launch. The Paradise Pier themed ride has become the longest looping coaster in the world.

Sports Car Thrills

Instead of an amusement park, why not experience the ultimate racing thrill http://bestonamusementparkrides.com/thrill-rides-for-sale/ and have a professional driver take you for the ride of your life in a fast car at Auto Club Speedway? After you buckle up, you better hold on tight for two heart-pumping laps through the Auto Club Speedway Exotics Road Course. You're next to a professional driver as he pushes the limits of a meticulously prepared, 505 horsepower Corvette Z06. If you think you have what it takes you can also drive an exotic car yourself-when you sign up for their Race a Ferrari or Race a Lamborghini experience.

Aerial Thrills

Not for the acrophobic or faint of heart, Sky Thrill in Fullerton lets you take control of a world-class aerobatic stunt plane-and fly it like a stunt pilot. They offer several flight experiences from short intro flights to over-the-top "World Aerobatic Champion" thrillers. You don't need a pilot's license or prior flight experience to fly in any of their programs. You fly the aircraft of your choice for up to 90% of the flight time at speeds up to 250 mph pulling up to 6 Gs! Sky Thrill pilots brief you on everything you need to know before your flight during a short safety briefing. They also teach you how to perform each aerobatic maneuver and what to expect from your instructor pilot. Once airborne, they talk you through every maneuver, step by step. Flights start at $365 for a 1- hour, 35-minute flight.

Amusement Park Rides and Boardwalk Rides

In the summer, many vacationers and families from Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey drive to the Jersey Shore. One of the favorite past times of most vacationers is to go on the rides at the boardwalk. So who maintains the amusement rides? Are the rides safe? What happens if there is an accident and someone gets injured?

Image result for amusement park rides for sale
The New Jersey Division of Codes and Standards, a part of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA), governs ride safety in amusement parks and carnivals to ensure the safety of these rides for the public pursuant to the Carnival and Amusement Ride Safety Act. NJAC 5:14A-1.1 - 5:14A-13.5, which was only implemented in the recent years. The Act provides responsibilities not only for the owner and manufacturer of the rides, but also the rider. The Act has 13 Subchapters, but only a few chapters of interest will be addressed in this article. The entire act can be found on DCA's website.

Subchapters 2 and 4 address the owners and manufacturers' responsibility with regard to maintaining the rides. Prior to a ride being open to the public, the DCA requires the owner and manufacturer of the ride to submit documentation for review regarding all carnival and amusement rides. These documents result in an annual inspection and permit to operate the ride in New Jersey. In addition, the rides are inspected by DCA prior to the ride is open to the public

Other than annual inspections by DCA, the owners must inspect and test the thrill ride on each day of intended use. The inspection and test shall be made by a qualified person experienced and instructed in the proper assembly and operation of the device and shall be performed before the ride is put into normal operation.

Subchapter 3 addresses the riders' responsibility. The Act basically says that a rider shall comply with the written warnings and directions posted by the operator of the ride, which include rider conduct signs; height, weight and size restrictions. § 5:14A-3.2. It also states that if a rider is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage, prescription drug or other controlled substance, he/she shall not board the ride. § 5:14A-3.3

What happens if there is an accident? The Act requires the owners to report the accident. There are two types of incident reporting requirements: 1) Shut down and report and 2) report within 24 hours.

"Shut down and report" involves any incidents of death or serious injury, ejection from the ride or failure of a critical structural or mechanical component, regardless of cause. The owner must shut down the ride and report it immediately to the Department by phone and prepare a written report and fax it to the Department within 24 hours of incident. The ride stays shut down until opened by the Department. NJAC 5:14A-14.3(a).

"Report within 24 hours" involves any ride-related injury requiring first aid, or any mechanical malfunction, or an emergency evacuation of the ride. The owner needs to report the incident to the Department within 24 hours by fax or phone. Owner then has 5 days to submit a written report to the Department. NJAC 5:14A-14.3(b).

Lastly, the owner is also supposed to keep a log of all incidents not reported to the Department that involve any ride-related injury or complaint. NJAC 5:14A-14.3(c).

With the regulations implemented in the recent years, safety has improved. In fact, New Jersey's 2009 summer season was free of serious injuries on roller coasters, Ferris wheels and log flumes, as reported by New Jersey State Officials.

It is important to keep in mind that regulations alone cannot prevent accident and injuries, riders must also be mindful of the safety issues. Read ALL of the warnings and requirements for the ride. For example, do not rely on the ride operator to enforce the height requirement. If you have young children with you who do not meet the ride height requirement, do not let him or her get on even if the ride operator lets them.

With stringent regulations and responsible riders, let's hope the 2010 summer season is also free of serious injuries.

Lakeside Amusement Park

The Lakeside Amusement Park is the oldest amusement park in Colorado, Denver. Before, it was owned by family and soon expanded and become an amusement park and become operational to the public.

During 1908, it was opened as a well-known amusement resort. It was named as White City because of the twinkling lights it brings during night time. Years had passed, it was renovated many times and added many features to better serve the visitors. There are three entrance gates to reach the park. Admission is free for kids' age two and below. Adults are issued coupons and can be used for unlimited rides at the park or you can buy ride ticket individually.
KIds Coin Operated Excavator Ride

Examples of rides for kids and adults are the train depot, the carousel, the Ferris wheel, Kiddy Play Land, Cyclone coaster and a lot more.

Parking space at the area is limited, but you can occupy more free spaces at the Lakeside in which you can use. Parking is totally free. However, some would think that parking is not free because most of the time, especially when there are many patrons and the park is almost full, they collect entrance fee at the parking lot itself to reduce a long line at the booth.

Enjoying the rides are often seen to kids. No wonder why many families would rather go to amusement parks rather than visiting simple parks with only playground available. But, the important is, you spend your happy times filled with laughter and excitement at the park with your family around.

How to Enjoy Amusement Rides With Your Kids

If you have young kids, you've probably heard them beg to take them to an amusement park. If you've ever tried it, you know that it can be an amazing day filled with wonder for your kids, and a huge headache-filled nightmare for you. However, this is in no way the law or set in stone. It is entirely possible for you to enjoy amusement ride and parks as much as you once did, along with your kids. Here are a few tips:

If at all possible, wait to visit these parks until all of your kids are out of stroller age. The hassle of carrying around a stroller is sure to dampen your experience, what with diaper changes, coordinating the young ones' napping schedules with everyone else's wants and needs. Of course, there are also all the height and age restrictions that come along with small rides. Your kids will have more fun being mobile, and you will too.

Make sure you have at least two adults. If you have a young child such as a baby or infant, this gives you the opportunity to take turns holding and caring for them, that way you can each have a turn on rides with your other kids http://bestonamusementparkrides.com/kids-amusement-rides-for-sale/. Even if you don't have infants, it is often the case that the youngest is either too young or to scared to participate in rides that the older ones want to go on, so this way you can take turns entertaining the little one and not miss out on other fun all the time.

Have a loose plan. For example, the early morning is for rides when the lines are shorter, and the afternoon is for eating and/or swimming. Just let your kids know what to expect so you can avoid, as much as possible, the crushing disappointment of no more rides for the day coming as a surprise. Also you definitely want to have an "in case you get lost" plan and make sure each child knows what to do. There are many strategies such as having a picture of each child in what they are wearing that day for identification, writing your cell phone number on their stomach, doling out walkie talkies, and agreeing on a specific, recognizable meet up location.

Have a bag with water, water and more water, snacks that are not susceptible to heat or melting (someone is going to get hungry and you can save yourself from shelling out too much cash), hats to protect from sun as well as sun block. You can even have little backpacks for each kid with their name on it, allow them to personalize it so they are less likely to lose it, and have them carry their own items so you don't have to carry as much.

Last but not least: Embrace the experience. Know that you and the kids absolutely will get hot and tired, at least one or more of you will get cranky before the end, over-expensive junk food is totally going to happen, and each and every one of you will have so much fun! Your kids will not forget this day. Ride the rides, be safe, enjoy every minute of it - your kids will!

Do You Know How to Build a Roller Coaster?

All good roller coasters start with a model; a model shows prospective customers what the ride will look like, how stable it will be, and assists their decision about whether to buy it or not. So here are a few steps in building a roller coaster model that can afterwards become an actual roller coaster ride.

Required Tools
Super glue
Normal marker
Permanent marker
Wire cutter
Image result for roller coaster

Required Materials

Paint
Your choice of material for the model (e.g., clay, tin)
1 yard of wire
Scenery pieces such as artificial trees, miniature people, plants etc.
Plexiglass
Small pieces of plastic

Instructions

Settle on the kind of roller coaster you want to make and select the material you prefer to use to make it. You can use clay, some sort of metal, or some people even use popsicle sticks and toothpicks, so choose which you prefer to work with and begin.

Use the normal marker to draw the shape of the track onto the plexiglass, - the lift hill, inversions (loops), secondary hills, etc, and as soon as you have decided on the shape, use the permanent marker to go over it to prevent it from getting rubbed out. The structure, tracks and support are all very essential elements of the model and should be outlined clearly here. Now you can start building.
Image result for roller coaster

Using the clay or other material of your choosing begin putting the model together. Take your time to put in each segment and put support pieces where needed to guarantee the model is sturdy and secure and does not crumple.

Every roller coaster http://bestonamusementparkrides.com/roller-coaster-rides-for-sale/ starts with a very high hill dubbed the lift hill, this is because roller coasters normally are driven by gravity and the lift hill is the only location on the track that an electric motor is used to get the coaster to the top and then gravity takes over. As such it is important to perfect the height and shape of the lift hill.

To build the lift for your model, use a wire cutter to cut 3-4 pieces of the wire and put them side by side in the center of the lift hill. Next pick 2 sections at the top and bottom of the lift hill that the lift will go through to join under the tracks. Then to the side of the lift hill, thread the wire beneath the supports to make a sort of chain until both ends connect. Glue the ends together and allow them to dry.

Using the glue put 2-3 more pieces of wood on the top section of the lift hill as the launch area of the track, and additionally on the inversion and turn sections of the track. Finally take the small pieces of plastic and glue them one by one along the inner area of the chosen track to represent the magnetic mechanisms used to launch roller coasters. Paint and decorate your roller coaster, design a small train for aesthetics and your model is complete.

Now it is time to get out there and find a client to make your model into a real ride!

Tips and Warnings

Since gravity is what keeps the coaster rolling, the length and height of the lift hill will be what provides the drive to keep the coaster going. So bear this in mind when determining the height and slope of the lift hill.

Build your model on a surface which is the color of the ground, either brownish for dirt or green for grass.

As you build the model, compare it to the plexiglass outline to ensure that all the track sections and supports are where they should be and none are missing.

Ferris Wheel

One if by land, two if by sea. If Paul Revere's famous signal system were being used to denote ways to enjoy the Alabama Gulf Coast, it would need another option: Three if by air.

A bird's-eye view of any area reveals the enormity of its beauty, the scope of its charms. But flying high above the Alabama Gulf Coast can help even the most ardent fan of the region appreciate how truly spectacular the ivory sands and azur waters are.

One way to gain a overview of the area is to take a ride on an invention that is a tribute to American design and ingenuity. The Ferris wheel at http://bestonamusementparkrides.com/ferris-wheels-for-sale/, named for inventor George Ferris, carries its passengers skyward and back as they ride in cars attached to giant steel circles. Ferris created the design for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago, and it was an answer to the French Eiffel Tower.
Giant Ferris Wheel for Sale With 120 Meters

The Ferris wheel at The Wharf, like its ancestor, is designed to make a statement. At 112 feet tall and bedecked with lights, it is visible from throughout the area, beckoning riders and admirers. It is the tallest Ferris wheel in the Southeast, sporting twenty-four gondolas capable of squiring one-hundred-forty people for a skyward journey. One of the gondolas is handicap-accessible, making it the perfect way for any visitor to experience the sense of freedom that flight can bring.

While the Ferris wheel at The Wharf is open both days and nights, arguments can be made in favor of rides at particular hours. In the daytime, the bright sunlight allows views of trees, wildlife and the surrounding countryside, which includes the famed Intercoastal Waterway of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Riders can see boats of all sizes making their way up and down the waterway, all the while enjoying the breeze that provides a bit of a break from the heat. In the evening, though, sun gives way to starry vistas, cool winds and a bit of romance. The best bet? Take a daytime ride, then come back for an evening circuit.

If being more than 100 feet off the ground seems too tame, perhaps it is time to move from one type of gondola to another -- the kind attached to a hot-air balloon. While hot-air balloons are more than 200 years older than the first Ferris wheel (and were invented by the French), the modern hot-air balloon and the technology that makes it safe and accessible for passengers still is shy of its 50th birthday (but was developed in the United States).

To get a taste of ballooning, some might opt for a tethered ride. This allows passengers to board the gondola, then ascend a few hundred feet off the ground as the pilot, or aeronaut, controls the heated air released into the balloon. The balloon can move vertically, but has little room for horizontal travel and returns to the same landing spot.

In an untethered flight, the pilot and ground crew meet up with passengers at a predetermined takeoff spot. But the landing zone is determined by the wind currents. The ground crew will follow the balloon's flight path and help the pilot secure a safe landing site. Passengers, meanwhile, can enjoy seeing bays, rivers, islands, inlets and, of course, the majestic Gulf of Mexico.

If your objective is the ultimate aerial perspective, parasailing is the only way to fly. After a boat ride away from the shore, parasailers are fitted with a harness, then attached to a parasail. When the wind catches the sail, the passenger is lifted away from the boat and into the air to fly as high as 800 feet above the Gulf of Mexico. The trip allows one some time to appreciate the serenity of flight as well as the proximity of wildlife, as fish can be spotted through the clear Gulf waters. All too soon, however, the descent begins and the ride comes to an end.

Any vacation to the Alabama Gulf Coast is memorable. But to magnify that experience, take it to new heights. Let your imagination soar, and then follow through by visiting the Ferris wheel at The Wharf, finding a pilot to take you on a hot-air balloon adventure or hooking up with a captain who can take you parasailing away from it all.

Carol Weaver overcame her fear of heights the first time she saw dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico while above them in a hot-air balloon. If she can do it, so can you!
