Where in the world of theme parks is this? (May 24, 2011 edition)

It's time to play again. I've cropped a photo from my theme park travels and embedded it below. You tell me the park and specific location in that park, in the comments.

Where is this?

First one correct wins bragging rights. I'll reveal the answer here tomorrow. Good luck!

Update: Someone's gotten it right already. But I won't say whom. Let's add a twist, though. Tell me what the second ride pictured here is. Look very carefully and you'll see it.

Is this one of those things you stare at for like 5 minutes and you can see some image in it?

Because I see 11 hidden Mickey’s and the world will end May 21st preacher..

I WAS RIGHT!!!!!!!
From Joshua Counsil on May 26, 2011 at 8:05 AM
I'm too late! I immediately knew it was Mean Streak, one of the toughest coasters around. I'd recognize those wooden struts anywhere.
From Mike Gallagher on May 26, 2011 at 8:54 AM
Did I miss something? I didn't see Robert say "Yes, it's Gemini" or "Yes, it's Mean Streak" I think he just said something like "Cedar Point it is!" So I assumed it was Gemini, but Joshua's post above says Mean Streak. I've been to Cedar Point quite a few times, but I can't visualize Mean Streak juxtaposed with Dragster that way. I thought it was Gemini.
