  1. I believe S&S offers arrow replacement parts. I can also see Vekoma selling parts for arrow trains as they are very similar in their designs.
  2. At Lake Compounce, smoking is prohibited on food patios, in Splash Harbor, Garfield's Circus World, and queue lines.
  3. I choose the Rotor. The distance the floor drops on those makes it my pick
  4. Steel Force Trains...uncomfortable? What do you think about the Intamin restraints then?
  5. While the OTS section of the restraint looks thicker and more padded, I wonder if they still jab into your neck like on Kingda Ka and Stormrunner.
  6. So this is the first normal disk on a Mega Disko track...correct?
  7. From what Kennywood did with Lake Compounce, I am sure that Story Land will only get better from here.

  9. If nothing else, the elevator system looks like it has alot of potential.
  10. If you take a look at this picture (and compare it to the ones from the "upgraded" model) you will notice that in the tower structure, yours has a large hole at the bottom of where the cable enters (and attaches to the cylinder), but this (Thunder N' Lightning at Lake Compounce) one does not. During the past season, the ride had many issues in which the cylinder would break. The upgrade included adding a bigger cylinder into the tower. (challenge was, fitting it into ones that were already assembled) By cutting a large hole into the structure, it allowed for the newer cylinder to be installed. Here you can see the "upgrade" (aka hole cut into it) that has now taken place at Lake Compounce.
  11. Did you notice if the Screamin Swing broke down at all during the day? It has the upgrade that other Screamin Swings were / are getting retrofitted with. How did Balder get stuck in that area? (Where in the ride is it?)
  12. If anyone wants to know some things to expect at Lake Compounce this season, or just see pictures of some new things (not included in canobiefans), I suggest you check out the link and see one of the best TR's I have read...(not on a funny factor though...more informative/detailed) TR Link (w/pictures) - http://www.lakecompounce.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1905 Just Pictures - http://canobie.swinglonga.com/20070414/20070414.html (^^Boulder Dash Inside^^) P.S. I would just post it here...but thats not my call...
  13. GCI was working on Boulder Dash at Lake Compoucne this off season and actually had to stop work (finishing next offseason) because they were falling behind with Renegade.
  14. Heres a link to make it easier... http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&saddr=New+york,NY&daddr=Paris,+France&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=49.176833,81.738281&layer=&ie=UTF8&z=4&ll=45.39845,-43.59375&spn=43.879114,81.738281&om=1
  15. The source that I got it from links back to another website, which is a health blog. You can see the credentials of the "staff" here... http://healthbolt.net/about/ Seems credible to me...
  16. Have you ever wondered why Coke comes with a smile? It’s because it gets you high. They took the cocaine out almost a hundred years ago. You know why? It was redundant. In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. 20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get it’s hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment) 40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dialate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. 45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. >60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. >60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. >60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.

  17. I say they are "pushing customers away" because they know of a problem, which many people are having according to the customer service representative, and are not trying to fix it. I know that in most businesses, if the customer has a viable issue, they will attempt to fix it, but Six Flags has decided to do nothing, and not care about the aggravation it will cost potential guests. If you are treating an issue in such a manner before your customers even arrive at your destination, what does that say about your company, and your practices.
  18. If you don't live in the Northeast area or in Canada, you probably wouldn't know of TD Banknorth. Here is a map of their NE branch locations. Has anyone succeeded with using a VISA card for a transaction with Six Flags?
  19. So today I received my Six Flags pass that i can "activate" by purchasing it, and not have to wait in line or pay for shipping. I was very happy to receive this and i instantly sat down and got ready to activate it. I followed all the steps and entered all my credit card information and hit the purchase button. While it was "thinking," there was me, smiling and excited to soon have an activated 2007 Six Flags seasons pass in my hands. To my dismay, i got an error message, saying that my bank / credit card company, TD Banknorth / Visa, had denied the charge. I figured that I had just entered some information wrong, so I tried again, and ended up with the same result. It did not tell me what the issue was either, just that my bank declined their verification. It also told me that SF could NOT help me, but it didn't say my bank could help me either. I figured I would call my bank, since they would be more helpful than SF customer support, and in retrospect, I made the right choice. My bank informed me that the transaction was being denied because SF was trying to verify the purchase with a $0.01 amount. The bank claimed that they, and many other banks, allow verifications of $1.00 and $0.00, but not $0.01 due to many fraudulent charges occurring with the one cent amount in the past. She told me that there was nothing they could do and to ask the company trying to make the transaction to change the verification amount. So there i was again, all happy to soon be holding an activated seasons pass in my hands. I was wrong. I called up SF and explained my issue to the service rep. To my surprise, she told me that she was fully aware of the issue, and that there was nothing she could do about it. I asked her who would be able to assist me, and she said that the only thing i could do, was to use another card. I explained to her that i only had one card, and once again she told me that there was nothing she could do. She couldn't even do it manually, and she said that no one else could either. At this point, i was basically laughing at how stupid SF was. They knew about the problem, which apparently many people were having, and were not trying to solve it. I know that if I was not an enthusiest, I would have just given up and brought my business elsewhere. I don't know if this is a VISA thing or just my individual bank, has anyone else had this problem? It just seems to me that changing the verification amount would not be that difficult. I can imagine that many of their customers are dealing with this problem, but SF apparently doesn't care. Its ironic though, I was happy to receive the seasons pass in the mail, so I could save money, but now I'm more pissed off at their poor business practices.
  20. Wow, your about the only person that i know that thinks Nitro is better than Toro. Make that two...I like Nitro better than El Toro...
  21. So when it breaks down, the workers have to push it all the way back?
  22. Not only are they standing up in their seats... they are standing on the back of the ship!
