  1. Big Bad Wolf was an amazing suspended coaster. I never got the chance to ride Eagle's Fortress, but I know for a fact that Flight Deck and Iron Dragon aren't anywhere close to the quality of BBW. I heard it might be because Schwarzkopf laid the foundations for it, and Arrow didn't do much track design. I haven't been on many suspended coasters, but of the ones I've ridden, BBW was easily the best, and the village scenery and woods only improved the ride.

     

    I most definitely disagree on that Big Bad Wolf was the best suspended coaster. People only liked it because of the theming. It WAS better than Iron Dragon. I was NOT better than Flight Deck or Vortex. I rode Vortex at Canada's Wonderland in 2007. Vortex was fast and smooth. Big bad wolf was fast for about 20 seconds at the very end. I mean both Vortex and Flight Deck at pretty short rides but at least they had punch all the way through. Obviously Eagle Fortress owned every suspended when it was in operation. What do you guys think about Ninja? I never have ridden it?

  2. I too am currently a Civil Engineering student at URI. I have completed two years already and I have done well with a 3.6 GPA. I do want to be a roller coaster/ amusement ride designer, I would say its way too much work and stress if you have a very narrow view on what to do with it, have a backup, I enjoy building and taking things apart. I could also see myself working for a DOT. Engineering is no walk in the park, it is the second most difficult major under pharmacy. Math and Physics you must be extraordinary at and a willingness to work hard. If you major in Civil; concentrate in structural,Mechanical is good alone, and I think any engineering will do really. I mean I have a parent who is a Civil Engineer and at least 50% of the material you learn in college is never used. No degree is going to put you above someone else unless of course there was a roller coaster engineering degree wish there was! Engineering degrees are very general, work at an amusement park while studying engineering that will REALLY help!

  3. I am sad to see another Arrow roller coaster go. If Chang does come to replace GASM I think they should reincarnate it as Shockwave! being taller, faster, and much more intense than the original that operated from 1990-1992.

     

    Viper's days are numbered, mark my words!

     

    I don't think so Viper will stay for awhile I think. I cant see them talking it out.

    Much agreed, I give Viper 5 years and it will be closed, and that's being generous. Viper is already 20 years old!
