  1. Yeh I rode it once and it was VERY forgettable. Not really fun...not interesting...just kinda there.
  2. Glad I got the credit a few years back. Had to take some glamour shots when given the opportunity!
  3. You may be thinking of Jokers Jinx at Six Flags America in Maryland. It is the same Premier "spaghetti bowl" design as Poltergeist.
  4. Thats really weird that they would offer that and then take it away. I think Hershey is a really nice park with some fantastic rides, but am always disappointed by how terrible the ride operations are. On Storm Runner I have never seen a second train run. Even when the queue is well over an hour. If they improved that once aspect of the park I think I would visit much more often.
  5. Where is all the love for Haunted Mansion and Black Diamond at Knoebels? And Fire in the Hole at SDC? Blazing Fury anyone?
  6. That's what I thought, but they just posted it on their facebook. Not sure who they may do some manufacturing for. It looks like Gerstlauer track to me. Since I believe Mack does most of their manufacturing in Rust.
  7. Is this being set up at the manufacturing plant? If so...what's all that purple (Gerstlauer?/Mack?) track for?
  8. SO I heard Dolly will be at the park on Friday to make some announcements. Will the park be swamped with people?
  9. Is this a launched coaster? On the front page of TPR for the update it says 'Launched' Did I miss something?
  10. I just happen to care since I took that one for their IG page. lol
  11. If you are going to use a photo from someone elses IG page can you at least give credit? Thanks!
  12. I agree! I am digging the wooden supports though! I wonder how much the price difference is between this and the regular terrain type.
  13. Well, if they hate you that means you made it right? I kid. I have been on these here forums going on 12 years now. (Wow I am old) And Have found that yes, you may disagree with what someone says or the way they respond, or whatever the case may be. But you have to sit back and remember...this is OUR HOBBY. MOST of us on here are not in the industry. THIS SHOULD BE FUN, and if its not fun for you anymore or it upsets you too much, just walk away. If you don't,you ruin it for other people. I have met Robb on multiple occasion at media events and he has never been anything other than professional and knowledgeable. SO keep up the hard work and I look forward to 12 more years of TPR. **edit** Regardless of your beef with an individual, don't drag their family into it.
  14. Awesome! Thanks to all for the help. Can't wait to get back on SKYRUSH!
  15. Gotcha. But do you know why you can either start at 11AM or 5PM? So if I don't get there until noon, I have to wait until 5 to use it?
  16. Question for the locals, or whoever can answer this. What kind of crowds would you expect on Sunday, August 28th? I assume kids aren't back in school yet and that might be their last weekend to get to the park. With that being said, how does their 'Fast Track Pass' work? You have to choose between 11AM and 5PM? Is it like a guided tour to each of the coasters?
  17. I doubt they would put those high-tech ride vehicles under a tarp outside in the Georgia heat.
  18. Yeh, like what Robb said, I have been able to get 2 Fast Passes since it opened a week ago. Just keep refreshing.
  19. You know when I rode it back in 06-07 I thought it was incredible and fun. Up there with Nitro at the time. But I rode it last year and again this spring multiple times and found it very underwhelming. The airtime is not as intense as it used to be and as a B&M fanboy I have to say, Apollo has developed a *bit* of a rattle.
  20. Ok, you know the Golden Tickets are a joke when most of these parks have not been nominated or won 'Best Landscaping' or 'Most Beautiful'. Not that Busch Gardens Williamsburg doesn't do a great job...
  21. I rode the Mini Millennium Flyers at the media event a few years back at LEGOLAND Florida. I rode with Robb in the front seat and we could barely fit side by side. They should just stick with the regular trains, unless they are trying to make this a true kids/family ride.
  22. Hey, as someone who had bought a plane ticket and put in for time off work to be there this week (for the assumed media event, remeber the park never set a date for the opening) I'm not even mad. We knew the risk of this happening and you role with the punches. After seeing the testing video, how can you even be mad?! The best part? Now I can wait until later in the season when the water-park is finally open and get to experience that as well! Win-freaking-Win
