  1. That is sad it seems all the SF parks have bad luck this year with all the rides closing and park hours being cut. I can only hope next year will bring the chain better luck.
  2. I will also agree with the idiot part. Watching that Video and reading the Lap bar was locked still he had to of been doing something really stupid. I feel bad for the fact he's in the Hospital and hope he's ok. It's idiots like this that are causing all the up roar on ride regulation safety. These rides are safe no matter what engineers do to make them fool proof their will be some moron out there that will figure it out and hurt themselves. Parks should do a maturity test on top of the height restrictions. It's getting out of hand with people trying to be "cool".
  3. I find it amazing that everyone has to nit pick every little thing to try and prove their opinion. I personally do not care what the acceleration is or who makes what better. KK is the tallest and fastest. Dodonpa is the fastest in less amount of seconds so what. Bickering over petty stuff gets old. Someone will break KK's records we all know that. Are we going to say that one stinks and KK is better. To me the best coaster is one that packs a great punch with a long layout. That could be anything from a kiddie coaster to The Beast and so on. Both TTD and KK are one trick ponies same with Dodonpa. Acceleration, Top Hat/Hill, Brakes. Each one of these coasters has something the other does not. TTD better view over Lake Erie, Dodonpa I have not ridden but I guess the Mountains, KK on a clear day you can see Philadelphia and it has the brake at the top so you get some hang time looking straight down the drop.
  4. The extra supports on the inside are most likely to give support for when the train is going through the turn at the top of the lift before the drop. Rolling Thunder has the same thing when it goes through the high speed turn. The weight is shifted into that direction needing the extra support.
  5. That is amazing. I love Universal Orlando. This letter reassures me that this is a company that knows exactly what customer service is about. I am a business major and to read stuff like this is great. I have not always seen great business practices at several theme parks that I have attended. I will not mention names but I am sure some of us on here may know a few as well. Best of luck locating five other people. Wish I lived closer I would ask to go.
  6. I have to say after riding X opening year I am glad SFI purchased the scaled up version. Their four concepts look good but X is by far the best. The first drop blew me away with the face down dive and the rotation too upside down. I wish we had a 4-D at SFGADV.
  7. WOW I am getting more replies in this thread then the one I created for that question. Thanks guys.
  8. Hey guys Just to let you know I started the topic on the 23 rd about GL's Free Fall the topic is called Intamin Drop Tower's It is a little different cause I asked how many First Generation Towers were left. So now I will ask it here does anyone know in my topic I have three responses. Thanks For your help.
  9. I am really going to have to save for this one it looks like its going to be an awesome ride.
  10. I just read on Screamscape Geauga Lake is now removing their First Generation Free Fall tower does anyone know how many of these are left world wide? I know of SFGADV, SFMM, CP and I think one of the SF Texas parks still has one. Are their more out there it seems their a dying breed.
  11. Thanks for the clarification I have not seen a woodie at my home park built during my time. All the others were steal and I never really followed a wood coasters construction. It seems the steals are actually what I was thinking it would be like. Having the actual track in place as well. I guess I sounded lame lol thanks again.
  12. ^ Correct me if I am wrong but I thought toping off was when it was complete not the tallest support going up. Like when KK was toped it was the actual last piece on the Top Hat.
  13. ^ They have been re tracking the left over the past season. They have been doing a little at a time but it was open a lot this year more then previous years. Both sides have been down for track work and you can feel the difference if you have rode it prior to the track work.
  14. ^ Mine Train is getting the single lap bars they were supposed to have this past year. Rolling Thunder has the same lap bars with the added seat belts. I have not heard about single lap bars for it.
  15. When it was relocated to my home park SFGADV as Shockwave in the early 90's I was upset cause I was exactly one inches shy of getting on. I was looking forward to riding it the following yr. Only to find it was moved to SFAW. But I can still remember pulling into the park and seeing the lift heading towards the park entrance. It looked awesome my friend that made the height restriction said it was a rough ride. Walking threw the park now there is five rides that take up its former home kind sad but great rides in its place.
