Show Notes

We start off this week's show with THREE First Drop stories!

First up, is news about the new roller coaster coming to Sea World San Diego in 2017 - Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster. Then, we get into a debate on what is really happening with Mean Streak at Cedar Point. Finally, we review a story about a doctor who found that taking a ride on a roller coaster could cure a person of kidney stones.

Heck, we'll even do an experiment live on-the-air to see if it's true.

Then, we'll interview Phil Raybourn, Senior Manager of Consumer Event Production at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Phil is in charge of Howl-O-Scream, so we'll talk with him all about it. We'll also find out about their new Escape Rooms and the new haunted house Circo Sinistro!

We'll also have a Live Trip Report from Six Flags Magic Mountain and an Interactive Discussion about Amusement Today's Top 50 Steel Roller Coaster list.

It's all this week on!
