World Leader in Vertical Sucking

So far, our Site O' the Weak feature has largely been directed to sites created by enthusiasts and for enthusiasts (with the exception of Playland's Castaway Cove, which was evidently created by evil monkeys to facilitate their torture of small children).

But perhaps that's been a bit too tough on enthusiasts. After all, most of their sites are done without any financial backing or, apparently, intelligence, design sense, or HTML skills. So this week, we turn to what is undoubtedly the worst site operated by a major ride provider. That's right, it's time to take a look at S&S Power's catastrophe of a site.

From the classy page title ("default.jpg"), to the refusal to use anything like actual text (instead using JPGs of text), to the loading speed that makes our high-speed connection feel like a dialup from Burundi, S&S has sure made us feel like they've got a firm grasp on technology. And there's nothing like a Paul Rueben quote to make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

So, congratulations, S&S! You're now the owner not just of the remains of an at-best marginally competent coaster manufacturer, but also the recipient of ARN&R's coveted Site O' the Weak award!
