Not Reno, "reno" as in renovated. We took a carload and a half of kids to Playland for opening day. It was chilly cold but not rainy. The crowds were small. I was excited to see that the roller coaster is about 10% new wood. Whole sections have been re-built. This looks like a promise that we get to keep it a while longer. It also makes it even more scary. Beside the fresh wood parts, the old ones look even more dilapidated. I rode it just five times so I need to go back soon. I did have my favourite ride by myself in the front seat. That alone is worth the price of admission to the park. We got season's passes so I'll have lots more rides before summer is over.
question: Are you a coaster-rider or a sideline-watcher?
