You guys realize this place still exists, right? It's just called Mountain Creek now. Yes, the ski/snowboard place.
I went last summer. Tarzan swing is still there, as is the cliff jump. New alpine coaster as of this year. And still barely any supervision. It's awesome.
Damn lawyers ruining the fun for everyone. place looked awesome
The worst thing about this place was the water for some of the rides was spring feed at about 55 - 60 degrees. I remember jumping off the tarzan swing and the shock of hitting the water was pretty bad. One other thing that always sucked was the smell from the swamps down near the race track. No matter what, it was always a good time and a lot of fun.
- In 1984, a fatal heart attack suffered by one visitor was unofficially believed to have been triggered by the shock of the cold water in the pool beneath the Tarzan Swing. The water on the ride and in that swimming area was 50-60 °F (10-16 °C) while other water areas were in the 70-80 °F (21-27 °C) range more typical of swimming pools. The Tarzan swing and the cannon ball ride in this area were operated by spring water.[SUP]
The go carts were the best. They went like 45 mph. Some people figured out how to override the governor and make them go faster, major accidents. Go read the comments on NJ.com, they had me almost in tears laughing. It was a wild place.
