Bingo. 10 points to Griffindor.

I'm gonna let my nerd side show here. It's spelled Gryffindor.

Um...I'm using...the traditional Welsh spelling! Yeah, that's it.

Little off topic. But does anyone think ki could use a capacity monster ride. Something like maybe maverick or a wild mouse?

I don't think you know what the term "capacity monster" means.... or you're a troll.

Truth. When I think of a capacity monster, Maverick, or a wild mouse are some of the last coasters that come to mind.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Maybe I have the wrong definition of a capacity monster. I thought it was s ride that's really good with capacity. Like banshee's 30 second trains.

Maverick and wild mice don't exactly have great capacity. Banshee, Diamondback, Millennium Force.... those are rides with great capacity.

It is, but a Wild Mouse and Maverick are about the farthest from capacity monsters as it gets. Unless of course you were to put VR on them... Then they would be even less of "capacity monsters."

^Wild Mice are terrible with capacity, but Maverick's capacity is actually fairly descent. I always remember the lines moving at a fairly descent speed. Considering that there is less than a minute of track between the first two blocks, a minute between three car trains is still better than most major corporate parks can do.
