So something I am genuinely curious about, I see a lot of praise for Flyer at Knoebels (and rightfully so after my experience) and the soon-to-be Mountain Gliders at Carowinds for their snapability. But I NEVER see anyone mention or even hint that KDs Flying Scooters are good for snapping. I think I got them to snap pretty well once a few years back but I haven't been on them since. Are they good for snapping? Is KD too strict about their snapping?

Kings Dominion's will snap pretty easily. Nowhere near as easily as either Knoebels or Carowinds, but fairly well. They are, however, very strict about it.

Technically snapping isn’t allowed on any of the Cedar Fair ones, but whether or not you get told to stop depends on the ride op.
 
I guess this would make sense as to why I never see anybody talking about snapping on KDs flyers. I've actually heard Carowinds ride ops used to encourage snapping on the Woodstock Gliders/Phantom Flyers. Knoebels ride ops didn't care at all what I was doing and I am pretty sure I was inches from a few trees.

Again carrying the conversation over from the Volcano replacement thread...

Few people know this, but Flying Eagles was built in 1939 and was part of the World’s Fair, making it not only the second oldest ride at Kings Dominion behind the Carousel, but also a piece of amusement history.

I can't say where I got these, but they burst into flame shortly after receiving them.
