THAT WAS A INCREDIBLE STORY AND YET SAD AT THE SAME TIME, LIKE YOU, I SAY TO MYSELF ONLY IF WE COULD'VE SETTLED OUR/THEIR DIFFERENCES. IM SEARCHING MYSELF FOR A RIDE THAT'S BEEN SOLD BY THE MIGHTY BLUE GRASS SHOWS OUT OF TAMPA,FL I CAN ONLY DESCRIBE THE RIDE IT LOOKS A ROCEKET AND IT IS A MINI ROLLERCOASTER EXCEPT CHILDREN& ADULTS COULD RIDE TOGETHER. THIS RIDE WAS LOCATED ON THE MIDWAY NOT IN KIDDIELAND. THE COLOR OF ROCKET WAS WHITE AND RAILS WERE ITHER BLUE/OR RED. YOU WOULD GET IN THE SEAT LAP BAR WOULD COME DOWN A THE SEAT/TUB WOULD MOVE FOWARD IN AND UPWARD MOTION TILL YOU REACH THE OUTSIDE OF ROCKET THEN YOU WOULD SPIRL DOWN TO EXIT OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE. I HOPE YOU CAN HELP ME? TELL ME THE NAME OF THIS RIDE.\
