  1. Tough one. I narrowed it down to three, at least for the moment. Favorite B&M coasters: 3. Wild Eagle/Dollywood 2. Goliath/SFOG 1. Tatsu at SFMM Favorite Intamin Coasters: 3. Volcano: The Blast Coaster/Kings Dominion 2. Xcelerator/Knott's 1. Intimidator 305/Kings Dominion If it had to be one each, then I would have to say Tatsu as best B&M and 305 as best Intamin. However, will have to re-evaluate both lists after riding Fury 325, Thunderbird, Gatekeeper, Banshee, Millenium Force and Top Thrill Dragster next year.
  2. A great job covering IAAPA again this year once again, have been revisiting all of the reports again today. I really enjoyed the live and interactive feel of everything, and I think the new format was a good move.
  3. Major progress this week on Fury 325-it looks as if they are about halfway done with the first hill. They put up some of the last support for the lift yesterday. https://www.carowinds.com/swarm/building-the-nest/live-camera-feed
  4. I think it is fantastic that RMC has such a full schedule, and I sincerely hope that one of the 2016 projects is Dollywood. Since Outlaw Run, I have heard rumors of one and to me it would be a perfect addition to their lineup. An invert would be nice as well, but I do not see them getting one so soon after Wild Eagle, I would predict to see another B&M at Silver Dollar City before another shows up at Dollywood.
  5. 1. How do you most often watch videos? (DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital Download, Streaming.) DVD and Streaming are the two main methods. (If I owned Blu-Ray, I would include that as well.) 2. What streaming services do you use the most? I never got into Netflix at all...if I watch a movie, I usually either buy the DVD, watch On Demand through uVerse or use uVerse Streaming. 3. How many DVDs or Blu-Rays do you buy a year on average? Maybe 5-6 at the most. If it is a movie/program I really liked and want to own, I will purchase it as soon as it is released either online to be sent
  6. First was Goliath at SFOG; ;last will be either Wild Eagle at Dollywood or Goliath at SFOG again during Holiday In The Park.
  7. Carowinds (at least once for Fury 325), SFOG and Dollywood multiple times (have passes to the latter two and seriously considering a CF Platinum Pass this year), and then Holiday World, Kings Island and Cedar Point in the fall.
  8. I really think that this is going to end up being Dollywood's version of Outlaw Run-a custom RMC coaster with 2-3 inversions. They just added two big steel coasters-one more for thrill seekers and the other a family coaster; as nice as I think a custom terrain-based B&M invert or hyper would be, I think they are going to go for another wooden coaster. Given the alleged price tag of $20 million, I would expect either something huge like Wildfire at Kolmarden or something in between the size of Outlaw Run and Wildfire as part of a new themed area with some smaller attractions. Whatever it
  9. SFOG is a great park, with some great coasters-Goliath is in my top five steel and there are some great classic rides at the park like Mindbender and Monster Mansion. In the past few years, however, there have been some lapses in quality as far as general operations, upkeep and so forth. I can really only speak for myself here, but I think that the primary reason that those of us who call it our home park are disappointed in the recent announcements is that we don't want to see it become a park like SF St. Louis or SF America, which seem to always get a raw deal when the new additions com
  10. This was one of those instances where I was not only very excited for a new coaster announcement and had high expectations, but where it actually exceeded my expectations. I am thrilled to see a coaster of this magnitude coming to a park which is in my region (about a 6 hour drive). While I cannot pass judgement until I get the opportunity to ride it next year, I anticipate that I will really enjoy it since I enjoy B&M Hypers a great deal, and because the layout looks amazing to me...it is as if they took Leviathan and refined and revised it. Congratulations to Carowinds, Cedar Fair and
  11. LOL-actually, that one just made me nearly choke on the soda I was trying to drink-hardest I have laughed in a while. Whatever five year plans are in place for my two home parks (SFOG and Dollywood, and if you want to add the closest Cedar Fair park, Carowinds) are already set. I can tell you that I would realistically predict the following in the next three years based on what few rumors I have heard: SFOG: 2015: Probably nothing, although a new ride would be nice. I would be happy if they just painted Goliath and worked with B&M to get rid of the rattles that seem to be hap
  12. Six B&M coasters is I believe the most they have done in a one year time frame. I think it's great to see them doing a lot of new projects, and given the positive reviews of Banshee and the jump to an LSM launch and unique layout on Thunderbird, I am anxious to see what else is in the works. From what I see so far: Holiday World-B&M Launched Wing Coaster (Thunderbird)=Orange Track Gardaland Dive Machine=White Track Wanda/China Park Flying Coaster=Yellow Track Efteling Dive Machine=Red Track That leaves the teal and the new teal with yellow stripe. On those two, I am guess
  13. ^Three things that make that even more interesting: 1. The listed height of the Superman: Ultimate Flight clones is 106' (rcdb.com/1976.htm) 2. B&M Flyer track outside of the Clermont Steel Plant that is not the one going to the Wanda Park in China 3. The aforementioned B&M clue Could be way off...don't know where the 92.5 comes in-this is just a guess.
  14. I have to chime in here: Dollywood (and SDC) to me has always exemplified what I feel Customer Service as well as overall experience at a theme park should be, and after just one weekend at Dollywood a few years ago, they quickly became my new favorite theme park that truly understands creating an overall experience accessible to all members of the family, from people who don't do rides at all to thrillseekers (Thunderhead is in my top 5 wood coasters, and Wild Eagle in my top 5 steel). The rides are all great, the way the staff truly seems to care and go above and beyond really sets it apar
  15. Congratulations to Holiday World on an extremely well thought out new addition and a truly brilliant marketing campaign! This was the very first time in a long time where I had high expectations for an announcement (I was expecting a B&M Wing Coaster, but nothing like what was presented-the layout is great and the launch really surprised me) and it not only exceeded them but blew me away. Personally, as B&M is in my opinion the absolute best steel coaster manufacturer there is and their Wing Coaster model is one I personally enjoy, I was really impressed; this appears to be a model t
