'Peak' roller ride draws crowds at Oaks Park
As promised, the new "Adrenaline Peak" roller coaster opened at historic Oaks Amusement Park on the last weekend in March, just in time for Spring Break.
Drizzle dampened crowds on opening day, but when the sun came out on March 30, the Oaks' ticket offices were swamped with folks coming to enjoy the brand new ride, and all of the attractions at the park.
Jeanni Crane and Scott Cage were two of the riders. "I really like rides like this, and it's amazing!" said Crane. "Rode it the second time because it was so much fun the first!" exclaimed Cage.
Others excitedly commented on the thrilling sensation of being pulled backward on the initial drop, and others remarked on the loop; but it was riding through the helical inversion that startled many riders, we learned.
