Northern California ACE members were treated to a one hour ERT of the Hi-Miler and the Crazy Coaster (see below) on August 21, 2007 at the California State Fair. The Hi-Miler is known for having a very skinny support structure and serious airtime in the front seat. This video also includes a POV of the ride from the front seat.
Watch Northern California ACE members ride on the Crazy Coaster. This coaster was new for Ray Cammack Shows and don’t let its spinning hot tub appearance fool you, this ride was very smooth and spun like crazy. The trick was to ride with only two people on the far left of the car. This footage will also give you a POV of the ride.
The date has been set. (Click on “Read more…” below at right.)
