Introducing the 125 Roller Coaster Challenge - Trimmed & Stapled Podcast

We know what you are thinking, ”Great another podcast about roller coaster top ten lists and ride debates”. Well yes, sort of…

While Trimmed & Stapled will include our thoughts and opinions on the best hyper coasters we have ridden, which Disney parks has the best theming, and which wooden coaster needs to become the next RMC hybrid, we would also like to take a different approach.

Each week we will spend about a half hour discussing our journey while we try to ride 125 new credits a season. So along with our lists we want to share our experiences, tell you why we choose to visit a particular park, why we did the coasters in a particular order and our journey from being GP to actually proudly calling ourselves enthusiasts.

125 Roller Coaster Challenge started out as a family adventure and each week we want to share that with you because when it is all said and done, the best memories come from the people who shared the ride.

Trimmed & Stapled debuts on December 1st, 2020 and will have a new adventure every Tuesday. Come share the ride with us

Episode 79 - Sadly Forgotten

Our first year of the 125 Roller Coaster was about one thing, getting to 125.  While we have made a few mistakes in our first year (you will hear the big one soon) we have a few regrets also and one of them is we did a few hit and runs in 2017.  What is a hit and run?  We would run into a park (usually one of the smaller ones) and get the credit and go.  We did that with Waldameer, we did it with Conneaut Lake Park, and we did it with the subject of this episode, Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury CT.


We ran into this park because we knew this was the day we were going to get our 125th roller coaster credit at another park so we came and went within an hour to grab Wooden Warrior at 121.  We have since learned a lesson from doing this which is you have to come and enjoy these smaller parks because they truly are hidden gems.  So in this episode we will be talking about some of the history of Quassy, we will talk about Wooden Warrior and do a walk through of this historic park.

But as a bonus we will also be discussing our YouTube channel and what type of videos we are focusing on and we will finally let you know our thoughts on Relief Band.  Yes, we have finally given this device a decent test and we are not going to hold back.  If you get motion sickness like Paul, this is a must listen too.
