  1. Wow, this looks like a high quality addition for Yomiuriland, and it adds a lot of new things to do. Yomiuriland was at best a "half-day" park, especially after they lost two coasters (though to be sure, they were pretty terrible coasters) and Twist Coaster Robin, so this definitely helps make the park stand out. This also seemed like a park in need of more indoor attractions (all my visits were either crazy hot or freezing), so that's a big plus. The spinning coaster looks really cool and the instant noodles rapids ride looks to be surprisingly well done. To answer an earlier question,
  2. After my first hand experience of nearly getting kicked out of Chessington for taking a photo of a closed ride, I'd guess that Merlin is very wary of having any media in the park.
  3. I'll be there Tuesday for the filming. I'm excited to be able to get to ride it early, since otherwise I wouldn't have been able to ride until later in June. I'll probably wear one of my less offensive Hawaiian shirts (no pot leaf prints).
  4. ^ Jason, I'll take you up on that. l'll send you $30 later this evening.
  5. Here's some of the stuff that's either on display, or might be worth displaying once I put up more shelves. Here's the stuff in the hallway. Going to left to right: Lake Winnie Cannonball parts and model train, Xcelerator launch cable, Maverick model train, Arrow wheel from King's Island (probably from Vortex), Dragster model train, Dorney Park Laser train I made, Belmont Park Giant Dipper bolts (I've got an upstop somewhere too), Wooden Warrior wood, Skull Mountain wheel, Ghostrider axle, Texas Giant bolt, GCI train axle, model Euro-Mir car I made, KBF Boomerang wheel (I like this one, si
  6. Yeah, I'd completely forgotten this was happening until seeing those photos of the track in place (and still wrapped up in plastic, neat). This is looking and sounding awesome! It seems like my next Europe trip will need yet another visit to Phantasialand.
  7. I'm also joining pretty late. This will be my first year riding for Coasting for Kids, and I'll be participating at Carowinds (!) since I'll be in the area. This is only my second visit to the park, so it should be a lot of fun. Here's my page: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1124165&pg=personal&fr_id=1370 Thanks!!!
  8. ^^ Same, Speedy Gonzalez Hot Rod Racers at SFMM during WCB. I'd tried on a previous visit and didn't fit, but tried again during WCB and just barely made it. And before that I finally got my Castle Park spinning mouse credit!
  9. Silver Dollar City SFStL WoF Indiana Beach Lagoon PortAventura Kolmarden Ferrari World Lotte World Hong Kong Disneyland Shanghai Disneyland Universal Studios Singapore Everland A ton of Chinese parks (the ones with good coasters)
  10. As a disclaimer, I've been to most of these only once or twice... Coney Island - Totonno's - 1524 Neptune Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11224 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totonno's It's a short walk from the boardwalk at Coney Island. One of Scott's recommended pizzarias. Still the best pizza I've ever had (though it's hard to go wrong in New York). SFMM - Rustic Eatery- 25343 Wayne Mills Pl, Valencia, CA 91355 Remarkably terrible name, but great Asian style sandwiches, salads, and plates. Also, beer. To get there, drive away from SFMM (always good advice) under the 5 freeway, and it'll b
  11. Soon... This was one of my favorite parks of the trip, as there were a ton of great rides (Piraten, the jungle ride, and the rapids all come to mind) and lots of weird little activities. One of my favorites was the obstacle course that included a little pond with stepping stones to get across, and timed water sprayers (I recall someone falling in). And later someone found that some of those ground-level trampolines were conveniently located above large puddles of water. On a nerd note, I think their log flume was the same model as the ones at BonBonland and Farup Sommerland, with
  12. I should be in the 100-200 range for Xcelerator, Silver Bullet, X2, and Goliath. For non-home parks my most ridden would be in the 30+ range for i305, Dominator, El Toro, and the BGW B&Ms.
