Gah! I'm going to lose my mind! I provide high quality pictures for TPR and CWMania and I get "attitude" from a member from the other site because they thought I posted the pictures here before CWMania... Gah. It's my own home park and the Fanboys are driving me nuts!

Anyways, at least I know all my TPR family appreciate the updates (and most over at the other site too)! Haha. And yes, I know a lot of you love my Canadian Nick stories as well!

The "Haunt booth" has been placed at the front of the park again near the fountains. Terror of London will be the new Haunt this year. I've heard it's going to be just as well done as Blood on the Bayou was last season.

Just a day and a half until the big announcement!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

600ft tall aquatrax with a 200ft deep underwater tunnel ;)

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

X-Works is the code for Wing Coaster. (BTW)


X-works has NOTHING to do with the coaster type as B&M have been using that code at the Ohio plant for the past three seasons now....long before the wingrider prototype opened in Europe.

RE: the "X-Works" code (just something I've picked up working for a company that does a lot of international shipping): that simply means the customer is responsible for picking up the goods at the factory dock; they are responsible for all shipping and transportation. It's used as a shipping designation worldwide. (Sometimes a manufacturer will include shipping and freight as part of the total cost of production, but not in this case.) FYI.

Whatever this ride is though, I'm super-psyched. And I really hope it's called Leviathan. That is a bitchen name.

I agree that Leviathan is pretty much the cats meow with regards to coaster names. Especially when used at the same park as Behemoth. Ziz would have to be a no-brainer for a flyer in the future.

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

General Contractor Seats doesn't make much sense to me.
One possiblitiy is that the box contains one seat (like a tester) to show off some kind of new seat design.

It could be a Leviathan. ;)

So does this mean Cf has a gigacoaster monopoly, all they need is one in Knotts now and they will have pretty much blocked SF out of the market, unless SF spends huge sums of money to top their competition which I don't see happening imo.

I guess I should first see if the announcement is infact going to be a giga lol
