IE the kid roller coaster at Cedar Point in Ohio is called The Woodstock Express.

that would be cool! Did you ever go to VF when you were here? I know you said your brother lived in MSP somewhere....

I read it on startribune.com. I refuse to read any of the over-glamorized TV station articles.

I haven't been on Star Tribune today....

and it was a Beagle Scout NOT boy scout!


TRUE STORY......

One summer day in 1992 I was in my BEAGLE SCOUT uniform driving to work from where I lived in Golden Valley down 169. There was a tarp/tent thingy on the road. I tried to avoid it but there was a lot of traffic so I had to drive over some of it. There was a rope on the tarp. The rope got caught on the bottom of the car. I drove all the way to the MOA from the 169/394 area in a Beagle Scout uniform with a damn tent on the back of my car. When I got out of the car, someone in the parking lot made a comment about how at least I was in the right outfit to have a tent hanging from the back of my car

Unfortunately no, they were not open the couple of times I went and visited. Drove by it though, I would have loved to ride Wild Thing. Looks like a good coaster. ( if you cant tell, roller coasters are kind of my other hobby/passion besides U2 )

Wild Thing is really cool! I haven't been there for about 5 years but I think there's a bigger and better one now since they built that one.

That would be considered St Paul They're both on the other side of the river so it's not Minneapolis.

Another true and completely useless story....people in Minneapolis think Minneapolis/St Paul is one gigantic city and the river is just the river. People in St Paul consider Minneapolis and St Paul two very separate cities and it's a huge ordeal if they have to cross the river to go into Minneapolis.

Kind of like Meg when people complain about having to drive over 2 bridges in RI to get to places. Only this is free. My mom's whole side of the family is from St Paul and it just takes everything they have to cross that damn river to come over for a visit.

I had already added that right after I posted!


Oh, and Wild Thing is still the biggest coaster at Valley Fair. They did add a new one though 2 years ago (its a shuttle coaster, you launch up a spiral and shoot back down backwards and up another tower on the other end, if that makes sense. ). Wild Thing is still bigger though.

You know more about the place than I do and it's only 30 minutes from here!

I never thought they were one city

But I used to be one of the people who wouldn't drive over the two bridges unless I ahd a damn good reason for it.

Although with the price of gas and bridge tokens, these days I'm not really sure I have a damn good reason to do it 5 days a week...

There are SO many people on both sides of the river with this mentality. I don't get it. It deserves a

I know people from the St. Paul side who only cross the river for Twins games...and people who refuse to cross to St. Paul...even for the High School Hockey State Championship.
