    The last element on Flight Deck is worth the price of admission alone. :D There's something about that pop over corkscrew right into the helix skimming the water that's just awesome (bonus if you take the leftmost seat to skim the water). Gold Striker is great too, it never lets up, and I'm looking forward to giving Railblazer a try sometime soon. Thanks for the video Robb, always love your exuberance and pure delight!

    This has been my local / main theme park growing up my entire life in the Bay Area and sadly I'll be moving away to the East Coast in a week. Ironically, I'll now be close to Carowinds which is owned by the same parent company Cedar Fair!

    The last time I was at Great American was when it was still Top Gun and they still had the Vortex. It’s been soooooo long. I’m not much for roller coasters anymore, but I would love to ride my old favorites again!

    I've always thought of Great America as my "home" park; it was the first amusement park I ever went to, and had the first roller coasters I ever rode (Tidal Wave, Demon, Willard's Whizzer). I haven't been since before Rail Blazer and Gold Striker were built. Heck, last time I was there, Patriot was the stand-up coaster and it was called Vortex. Okay, yeah, the last time I went to Great America, it was still owned by Paramount.
    Also, my condolences on your back (Grizzly) and your head (Demon). As much as I love the Arrow Loopers, they are some of the roughest rides out there anymore. I would love to see somebody come in and redo the track with more modern design techniques, but then it wouldn't be an Arrow anymore, would it?
    Thank you for sharing these with us!

    But when you include some of CGA's coasters from the past, they do have atleast 6 awesome roller coasters. Stealth, Invertego and Greezed Lightning are missed a lot.

    So Im afraid getting on coasters and I heard that it makes you feel better by watching pov coaster riding like these to make it easier and less scary to get on a coaster in real life. So my complaint is that how come when it comes in person, the coasters looks twice as high then in the videos? I hate bamboozling myself lmao.

    If nobody has been to Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio you have to go there because every other roller coaster I see is just a rip off of the ones I see at other places. For example, the literal first one I saw in this video was the raptor at Cedar Point.
