Karen and Alex rode all roller coasters shown below several times. Karen is a "hands-up" roller coaster fanatic. Lee Duquette photographed Karen and Alex on several of the rides. Lee did not ride the roller coasters at all, due to a fall he had last year.

Top Speed: 50 mph
Length: 2,700 feet
Elements: 2 vertical loops (77 feet and 88 feet tall), 2 single corkscrews (each 40 feet long) and a one-of-a-kind heartline spin producing a feeling of weightlessness.

Batman was a great ride, but before Karen and Alex got on the ride, they had to wait in a covered area with no fans. It was so hot and humid in that area and all the riders were complaining. Luckily, Karen Duquette had her own battery-powered fan with her that she often wears around her neck. As seen in the photo below, people are really close to the ground at one point.

Dare Devil Dive was the park’s first "euro fighter" coaster, with a rare 10-story vertical lift and first drop that dives beyond vertical as it plummets towards earth. Dare Devil Dive's mission begins as you're pulled straight up to the sky on a special vertical chain lift, then slowly roll to the top of the tower nearly 100-feet in the air. After an agonizing pause at the crest of the summit, you plummet downward at an angle that is beyond straight down — it actually angles inward at a blistering 52 mph. It is the country's first PAUSE element before the beyond vertical drop.

Then you careen through a thrilling combination of diving loops while executing three inversions before you catch air on a zero gravity hill and swoop across the dreaded Immelman vertical U turn stretched high above the ground. The crescendo builds as the car dives toward the ground and up into a Heartline roll before being slowed by the magnetic brakes. Whew!

Karen and Alex thought the only great part of this roller coaster was the first drop. Each car only holds six people and there were only four cars. Always a long wait for this ride.

Lee was unable to get a photo of Alex and Karen on this ride. That's okay because they didn't like this ride anyway. It shook their heads too much. Karen and many other riders were yelling "Ow my head hurts".

Karen wanted to have Lee take a photo of her and Alex, but Alex refused. Karen tried to pull him off the pole, but couldn't. Oh well, these photos are more interesting this way anyhow.

Alex drove a go-cart. This was an extra fee, so Lee Duquette did not want to pay for Karen to drive the go-cart too, even though she wanted to. El-cheapo! And Karen Duquette did not have money with her. Bummer!!!  (Note: Besides the entrance fee, there was also a $10 parking fee - later they paid a $20 parking fee at Six Flags New England).
