Stricker's Grove Question?
I was wondering if anyone knew what the Stricker's Grove park in Cincinnati was like. I see that they have two wooden coasters listed; Tornado and Teddy Bear. Are they small coasters? Any info would be appreciated.
Stricker's Grove is a really fun park. It does have two coasters. The Tornado is the bigger of the two and Teddy Bear is the junior.
Tornado is quite fun with a great double down. The first time I rode I was completely suprised, and quite worried I would come out of the seat. I really like the ride. I was told by Rocket Roger this weekend at PKI that the Tornado has been painted white. It had a natural stain in seasons prior.
Teddy Bear is comparable to Beastie at PKI (or Scooby Doo at PKD) and is a good junior, although not that thrilling to seasoned coaster riders. Good for coaster count. Little ones love it.
Strickers Grove also has Flying Skooters, a Carousel, Tilt-O-Whirl, Ferris Wheel, Cuddle-up, and several kiddie rides. It is by no means a big park, but it is fun for an afternoon. Unfortunately Strickers grove is a picnic park and only open to the general public for two or three days each season.
