Dare to tangle with the Hangman? HA HA HA HA HA(coughcoughwheezehack). Anyways, Hangman was the last of the
rides to be put in by Opryland before it closed. Alot of people who rode it compared it to T2 at Kentucky Kingdom as far
as being a ruff ride and beating you half to death. This was a really popular coaster as it compared to the major coasters at
other major themeparks. I never chose to ride it as I'm not big on the really big nasty coasters. But most I've talked to
enjoyed the ride. The Tin Lizzies were taken out to make room for this new coaster. Great coaster, just not meant for the
families.
