OK: Wow. And I thought I had an Anton Schwarzkopf fetish... I'm apparantly outdone. Even I have yet to make a video dedicating my love of Schwarzkopf coasters to the internet.

BTW: Chad, side project coming up. Need you to shoot a video.

Those people who know Mr. Parktrips would appreciate this joke. Shockwave and Mindbender are still top 10 rides for me.

I've never understood why Shockwave fares so badly on Mitch's poll. It's just outside the top 100, which I think is a shame, since it's a much better coaster to me than that. Not a top 10 or anything, but a definite top 40. And I think it's also better than Mindbender, which ranks way higher at 53. Those of you who are Shockwave fans, be sure to vote this year when the steel poll opens!

I know that a lot of old school enthusiasts prefer SFoG overall, which helps Mindbender a lot. But what do people out here think about the two?

Ironically, NTag hurt my enjoyment of Shockwave on my return visit tot he park this year. I was there for the ACE Con, and we'd had hours of ERT on NTag the night before. So, my thighs were still VERY sore the next morning for rides on Shockwave. I was actually dreading the moments of ejector airtime on it, since they caused me quite a bit of pain on my still sore thighs! But it was way more NTag's fault than Shockwave's. The only problem was that the ride was strangely inconsistent. On one ride we'd get ejector airtime. Then on the next time, we'd get a few little pops. And it didn't seem to be related to which train we were on or how full the ride was. Still, even it's mediocre rides were far better than most other coasters' best rides. Is this normal for the coaster?

Chad and Jake, does this pretty much sum up your feelings upon encountering Shockwave?

It is a great ride, as is Mindbender.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I really enjoyed Shockwave, but Mindbender is just simply amazing. It really doesn't do for me to compare them though...they are both awesome but so very, very different. Mindbender's use of the terrain (going over the side of that hill) makes it rate in my top 10. Some nostalgia there, but it is so unique in it's layout and setting that I would prefer it regardless.

Thanks guys for the amazing pictures though. Any Anton is good Anton for me :)

Shockwave was my first looping coaster - I rode it when I was, like, 7 or 8. We went from Ohio to Texas mainly to ride it, because you have to be 48" tall to ride the looping coasters at Cedar Point. But I had discovered Six Flags through Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, so I looked it up and was stunned to see that you had to be only 42" tall to ride Shockwave. It is a shame to see how rusty that thing is... it looks like it could fall apart. And as for you "Shwartzporn" fanatics, well, you better hope Shockwave is a girl...
