  1. This would be a great ride for Six Flags. A nice fit for any park in the chain. It will not take up too much of a foot print. And be a much needed flat ride roster boost. It would fit with the "Dare Devil Dive" name Six Flags likes to use now.
  2. Nice report! Great photos. This looks like it was designed in RollerCoaster Tycoon with the block limitations and roof shape. In fact I think I designed a carousel building that looks very similar in my RCT3 park and possibly my RCT/RCT2 parks years ago.
  3. If you click on the YouTube link, the story will be explained in the video info.
  4. They usually look a bit Roller Coaster Tycoon-ish with the way the transitions and drops are made.
  5. That's a joke right? I have seen U.S. rides posted on TPR in similar or worse condition. But I am sure they have all passed inspections. I have no idea what you're talking about. I've never seen a roller coaster in the US that has been in worse condition than some of the death traps we've ridden in China. I am basing it off of this video. The ride does not look that bad. I hear that you guys were in pain. I am not defending the Knock-offs or Chinese death traps.

  7. Wouldn't it be cheaper just to donate the ride to ACE or someone who would like to save it, instead of pouring more of your own money into it by paying for a demolition permit, a company to demolish it and then haul the scrap away? How much money could you make off of 30+ year old scrap wood, nails, bolts, etc...? I understand that ACE does not have the money to buy a roller coaster, then pay for the move and reassembly or storage of it. But if the person just gives it to ACE for FREE, then ACE could spend the time to find someone to buy it or try to raise money to pay for the move, and possible rebuild if Cedar Fair does not allow it to stay were it is. They would have longer than Sept. 15th. They would have until Cedar Fair sells the land or says the ride has to go! Doesn't that make sense?
  8. I think you might like this web site: http://www.historicaerials.com Its a great aerial web site where you can find a location, and also compare 2 different years to see how things changed. For example: for Riverside/SFNE, you can view it in 2006, 2005, 2001, 1997, and 1971. I know that some of the aerials are not that good quality, but its better than nothing. I think it is cool to see Riverside back in 1971 to what is looks like today(2006). Others might also find it interesting to look at their favorite park or other favorite sites, say their home town just to see different parts and what it used to look like. Let me know what you think of the site. I was drawn to the site by someone on another site I go to which is a railroad fan forum site.
  9. Is this the same carved horse that is behind Shapiro in this video about the S:ROS transformation to Bizarro? It looks similar. Link to the video: http://www.seetheride.com/ The horse shows up at the beginning, but is also seen in slightly different angles thought the mini film.
  10. I think one of the best books related to roller coasters would have to be the book about Herbert Paul Schmeck called, Herbert P. Schmeck The Forgotten Legacy, by Torrence Jenkins, Jr. The book is sold buy ACE, and the link to the book is below: http://www.costore.com/ace/productenlarged.asp?ProductId=948408&CId={CB39C108-3979-430D-9CC6-A92BFCD1235A}&NC=192009181840 I am not sure if it is sold buy anyone else. The book has great information about H.P. Schmeck, and his roller coaster designs. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in wooden roller coasters, roller coaster designers, Herbert P. Schmeck himself, and roller coasters or amusement parks in general. Its a great book for the low price. If you think $19.95 is a low price for a good book.
  11. There will be a show about Hard Rock Park today on the Science Channel. It will be on today at two different times 8pm and 11pm, and then again on the 11th and 12th. Check your local listings for channel and times. Link to the shows channel: http://science.discovery.com/tv-schedules/series.html?paid=48.15411.125355.36186.14 I have not seen the show yet, but I hope they go into a lot of details. Maybe even talk about the financial troubles and bankruptcy, but I doubt it. I think I saw Colossal Construction that was for new water park. The show was interesting, and did have some nice information, and lets the viewer see how things get built. Whats involved, problems that happen, changes that need to be made, etc...So I hope this will be a good show about Hard Rock Park.
  12. TPRTV is a great new feature! Thank you for making this new feature, also for adding the "Download Original Video" feature. If I like the video I like to save them to my hard drive, then make a DVD full of them so I can watch them over and over when I want. This feature is what makes TPRTV much better than YouTube. Also I was just wondering why you changed the color of the TPR logo for TPRTV? The P=blue, and the R=red, but your Theme Park Review Logo is T=green, P=red, R=blue. Any reason behind this change? No big deal, but I was just wondering. Thank You Robb and Elissa for making this new feature. Keep up the good work guys.
  13. Yes, the file is flagged so that everyone has 3 chances to download it before it will give you the "access denied" error. Please just try it again. Just curious, how many people did it actually WORK for? --Robb I started to download the file, but then I canceled it so I could download it using GetRight (just in case the internet connection go lost), but when I tried to download it using GetRight it did not allow me to. Then I just tried to redownload it the normal way, but I got the "access denied" error. Is there anyway I can redownload the file using GetRight? Sorry for bothering you. I hope you don't mind. Thanks for your time and help. Thanks again for the Free Gift.
  14. Where do you see an on-ride picture? I did not see any in his post. Did he already take them down? Anyways, nice Pictures! As for the Yankee Cannonball: I think the orange color on the rails is different, and some what original for a woodie. The only other woodie I can think of that had a similar color scheme was Florida Hurricane @ Boardwalk and Baseball.
