No, they are dumb. They can obviously see bright new steel track on what was a wood coaster. What thinking person would think new track means it's being torn down? There is also the fact that you don't need to be precise and exacting if it's being completely torn down. They can tear down a wood coaster really quick if you have no need to save parts or relocate it. They could just wrecking ball it over the off season.


So can you casually walk past a auto body shop and know if new parts, after market parts or second hand parts are being installed. If not car enthusiasts think you are dumb.

That is perfectly said. Paying attention to what is going on with MS is probably most of the GP's least of worries.

^^ Or if they're a Chinese knock-off? :lol:

Seriously though, I was just talking to the lady that works at our credit union last week because she said that her family (they go annually) went during Beer, Brews and BBQ - she also thought that they were tearing it down. She also said the same thing with regards to seeing cranes, but said that she didn't even notice the steel track. When I explained to her about the RMC conversion, she got super excited because she said that she never rides it anymore because it's too rough.

So I am thinking that a lot of guests that go there every year probably just completely ignore Mean Streak (like it's not even there) because of the pure shit-show that it had become. I could see the GP basically saying: "They're tearing it down? Good, that ride sucked anyway".

Maybe they were more enamored of seeing Skyhawk, Maverick or possibly....Lusty Lil's, Beer & BBQ that they didn't even notice what was being dangled overhead.

Probably several folks that were like, "Ohhhh....a beer fest...look at...all....of....this.......beeeeeer! :lover:

Area food and beer distraction to the non-enthusiast and a long drawn out speculation for the enthusiasts....those folks from CF know just what they're doing! ;)

Third thread I've had to clean out today due to the nonsense of one fool.

Strike three, he's out.

Sorry to break it to you, but I think your wife might have a classic case of "dumb"...

/s


My wife is an occupational therapist. I am sure you will have to look it up. When you get done with that read the rest of my post. The general public do not follow every little step of construction on a roller coaster. It never crossed her mind to look at Mean Streak and study it. The general public don't research every ride at every park. They know nothing of a company that takes old wooden coasters and reengineer them with steel track. I am the coaster fanatic. She just goes for the ride.
