  1. ^ I said this on BGEscape........why does everybody hate KDs Hurler? Last time I rode in 2006 it was fun!..........Carowinds Hurler sucks so bad its my least favorite coaster EVER. I rode it last in 2004 and it pulled a few shoulder muscles.......
  2. Then go. We know your stance. Why must you keep complaining? --Robb Because I want to, I'm just making a joke out of it, that's what the turing was for(HINT). Like I said before, you must had not understood. I would had wanted another type, meaing 1 big flat instead of 3 small ones, that's just my wants and desires, don't you have the same for some things. It's not that very hard to comprehend with that. I'm still glad we are getting 3 flats to add to our addition(if we are), but why knock me if I want a large flat (newbie), dam*!! Dude chill. Since 2007 we've added a Proslide Tornado, a Proslide Mammoth, a second wavepool, a B&M Floorless(we've all been wanting a B&M forever at KD). 3 used flats is just fine and the ferris wheel if we get it would add some nice atmosphere to the grove section of the park. I think they'd do better at Carowinds. Since 2004......they've added their flyers, some other random flat that escapes my mind, a swimming pool, a kiddie water slide, a flat taken out and readded, a 2nd wavepool, swings, and next year a vekoma boomerang.....Kings Dominion has plenty of rides stop complaining. BGE gets a new ride every 2-5 years and they're doing just fine.
  3. I would have loved for a Giant Frissbee but this is just fine in my opinion.
  4. I'd love to try dude but when I go to an amusement park and start taking pictures I forget after a few rides thats what happened at SFFT .
  5. Ugh i'm nervous about SROS and its evil intamin seatbelts. I rode MF back in 2005 but I still had trouble with the evil seatbelt I weighed significantly less in 2005(no I didn't go to white castle and eat 100 burgers) its not really extra fat weight. I'm 6 foot and weigh about 260ish Im the dude in the weezer shirt haha
  6. SFGAdv would destroy SFA. Parc would have to spend tons of money to even come close to great adventure.
  7. Cedar Fair wont spend money on new trains when they have "perfectly good" trains already. But if it was Cedar Point...........
  8. No, standard B&M hyper trains have nine rows. Plus, the pictures confirm Behemoth-style seating. Correction: Apollo's Chariot has 9 rows.....
  9. Steel 1. Millennium Force 2. Apollo's Chariot 3. Alpengiest 4. Afterburn 5. Goliath(SFFT) Wood 1. Boardwalk Bullet 2. Lightning Racer 3. Thunderhead 4. Wildcat(HP) 5. Grizzly(KD)
  10. This sucks I loved that rapids ride back in 2001. It was fun I have a video of it somewhere. Psh wavepools.....
  11. Interesting. Looks like next year it's either Kings Island or Six Flags Over Georgia for me......
  12. I'm goin the 17th. I might take your idea it sounds pretty good. Tripadvisor makes the place sound really bad........
  13. I just realized >. The day im going to SFA is a thursday which means its on the stupid starburst concert thing series. Has anybody been on a thursday this season? Has it been crowded? EDIT: Okay im a little shaken about going after reading like 22 tripadvisor reviews. They were all horrible. I might decide to go to Kings Dominion instead afterall but I'm not sure yet. Like for example one review said they were scared to death walking back to their car in the poorly lit parking lot.......But then they love Kings Dominion and I've thought Kings Dominion is ghetto before. What do you guys think of Six Flags America in terms of people and operations NOWadays.
  14. I hope they paint it and give it a cool new name. I also hope they paint the entire Nighthawk coaster BLACK.
  15. Yeah I must say Carowinds is in desperate need of modern flats. Id say HUSS giant frissbee would be good. But I've always been biased for HUSS giant frissbees. I think something really cool the could do is build an intamin prefab woodie. WE NEED MORE OF THOSE in the world!!!!!! They're so good but we just keep getting the not as good GCIs. Come on industry more Gravity Groups and Intamin Prefabs please!
  16. UGHHHH I have a problem. The thing is with my trip to SFA I live about 5 hours from SFA youd think i'd of been there by now I'm 16. The trip is planned out like this me and my friend with me driving drive to my sisters house in fredericksburg and her and her boyfriend drive us the rest of the way to the park. Now that she told her boyfriend he doesnt wanna go to SFA cause his friends at work said it's a $%#@hole. He's never been but because of them he thinks we should go to Kings Dominion. I've been to Kings Dominion 4 times the only achievable credits without a little kid with me left are Dominator and Flight of Fear. I'd rather ride Superman It looks like a load of awesome. I'd rather go to the park that has a cheaper admission ticket and a brand new experience for me. Anyway you think I could convince my sisters boyfriend otherwise? I really don't want to go to Kings Dominion again already.....
  17. I'm going to SFA 7/17. Can't wait hopefully the park will be empty. I hope to the dear lord that two face is fixed by then. Does anybody know the story behind why Two Face is closed?
  18. ^Ride stealthborg assimihawk anyway. It really is fun and its layout is slightly different from Batwing and X-Fireflighthawk. In other news according to Screamscape(i know i know) Flying Super Saturator is out Head Spin is in. I have no problem with it seeing as I enjoyed the boomerang at SFFT. I hope they try those new trains with just lapbars and give it a nice paintjob and a new name...........but thats asking a bit much of Cedar Fair.... EDIT: If this is true I would like to dub Carowinds: The relocated ride capital of the world! Coming Soon..........Hypersonic!(jk jk)
  19. Ugh come on Cedar Fair! Why do the other parks get awesome new coasters before Carowinds? wheres our GCI woodie and B&M hyper?
  20. I haven't been to Carowinds since 2004. Unless somebody gives me a free ticket I'm not necessarily rushing to go back. I love Carowinds it's the closest amusement park to where I live(...........about 2 hours away). I still need the Vortex and Runaway Reptar credits but I can live without those. Hurler is my worst roller coaster I've ever ridden. I'd say it's tied with Rattler at SFFT gosh they are both loads of suck. But I didn't ride Hurler in the front in 04 i think it might of been more towards the back which could explain my horrible pain inducing ride. But as far as I'm concerned I'm not gonna go back till they add a major new coaster. I have many other parks on my "to do" list. Sorry but Flyers, the dutchman ride, a new family slide, a new pool, and a new wave pool aren't gonna make me rush back soon. I think the one thing the park needs to balance out it's collection is a hyper. The highest coaster is 115 feet. That's kinda lame in my opinion. Also a GCI/Intamin pre fab woodie would be really cool.
  21. Astroworld! I passed it on Sunday! I'm looking foward to riding Grass: The Ride!
  22. Hurler at Carowinds-I hurt for 3 DAYS after it it was so PAINFUL. Rattler at SFFT-OMG you can't describe the SUCK this coaster is. The drop was fun but after that the PAIN comes and then the 7 year bumpy helix. UGH it was so bad......
  23. Hey im going to Six Flags America sometime this month. It was either SFA or KD and ive been to KD multiple times and SFA 0. Also the $25 ticket helped. This will be my second Six Flags after SFFT(believe me im not expecting it to be close to the quality of that park). I'm hoping to GOD two face will somehow REPOPEN by then so I can walk out with all 8 credits like I did at SFFT. But I doubt it......Any advice for a first time to SFA?
  24. Hey(mods i apologize for double posting but I have a TR to post!) Yesterday I went to SFFT finally after months and months of speculation. I have to say I was very impressed with the parks atmospeare and rides. But I wasn't impressed by crappy 1 train op on Polty and Goliath but I digress. We left our hotel at around 10 to get some breakfast at a "whataburger" being from Virginia I've never been to one of these before(we also went to Jack in the Box which was delicous). We got to the park around 11. The quarry setting of the park was excellent I must say but those waterfalls I see in the pictures so often weren't on all day . We paid the ridiculous parking fee of $15 and parked pretty close in front of Goliath. We already decided we were gonna ride that first. We walked in(having already paid the excellent price of 31.99(take a hint BGE). I have to say the entrance reminded me a lot of BGE as well as the half of spassberg without Superman Krypton Coaster(well get to that later). We took an immediate left and headed out to Goliath(odd location its so out of the way many people probably miss the walkway when they walk in). Once we got over there I noticed the t-shirts advertising goliath was so huge and all and I thought that was really dumb seeing its the 4th tallest coaster in the park out of 8 and all the other Goliaths in the world are huge awesome hypers but I digress. I guessed this was my first typical six flags like experience. One train op on Goliath. But surprisingly the line went extremely fast. The line was on the ramp and it was about a 15-20 minute wait. We got ridiculously lucky when we got to the turnstyle. The person assigning rows gave us the front I was extremely happy to get in the front because anywhere else on B&M inverts other than the back aren't really anywhere near as thrilling. This was my first ever Batman clone(I know it's reveresed). It was really short but it was awesome. I have this thing for B&M Inverts they're always a blast. It was also on this ride I learned Six Flags really dumb policy about shoes and other things being left in the station. When we got on I threw my sunglasses and hat down with my flip flops. A ride op immediately grabbed them and brought them back to us and said we can't leave them there. I think that is ridiculous we can't leave them there but we can leave our shoes. I understand it's a capacity time thing but sunglasses aren't that easy to hold onto on a coaster so I held onto them as I held onto the handlebar and I sat on my hat pretty much all day on all the rides except the flats which all actually had cubbies or the ops simply let me leave my stuff on the platforms but not at all on the coasters. After Goliath I decided to go ride Boomerang. This was my first ever vekoma boomerang. I don't understand why these things get all the heckling they do. Boomerang was a lot of fun but obviously the line went slow and we stood out in the sun which sucked. We got the very back seat of the train. Going down the drop after being pulled very slowly up the lift gives a very amazing feeling. I love that freefall feeling it feels really good. Being in the back we got jerked down the cobra roll and the loop going fowards but it wasn't bad at all. It feels really strange going through inversions backwards. After boomerang I really wanted to ride Poltergeist or a water ride if my mom wanted too but she didn't so we went on to Polty............no line...........but one train op. We walked in and I started to wait for the front. Then I realized the second row had virtually no wait. Me and my sister rode it twice while my dad and her BF waited for the front. We rode twice while they rode once. Poltergeist was probably my 3rd favorite coaster there. After the awesome polty we headed to the everlooming scream! Something about S&S towers they're unbelieveably loud(at least the ones I've been around). I mean it's not bad or annoying I understand what the ride is doing but I could hear it just about everywhere in the park. This was the first S&S tower I've ever ridden. It was a total blast being shot up and down. I can't decide if I like them more than Intamin gyro drops or not. After scream! we rode the scrambler....I love scramblers...After that I wanted to ride Scooby Doo's Ghostbusters but it was closed . We rode Frissbee instead. See this dissapointed me I've ridden MaXair which is my favorite flat ride anywhere. I expected the smaller version to be somewhat close to as good. Something I liked though we had a really long cycle but it didn't get really thrilling till the very end of the ride. These rides are not tall people friendly. I'm 6'1 and the restraints really hurt my shoulders. After that the fam wanted to ride Tony Hawk's Big Spin. I was looking foward to my first spinning coaster and I must say it was a MAJOR.................dissapointment. We barely spun it was kinda cool but it was too short way way to short. The ops were doing pretty good on operating it though. This was kinda fun but these need to stop popping up at other six flags parks. I bet the families love it but it's kinda mediocre. My biggest dissapointment of the day. After we rode THBS we decided to ride the chute the chutes which was fun for what it was and it got me a lot wetter than I thought it would but not too bad cause my shorts were still dry killing my worries of getting chaffed and all...........Unfortunately on the bridge walking out I thought I was clear of the splash radius but I wasn't.........I got good wave of soakage on my left side. That irritated me then I determined It was Superman Krypton Coaster time. Ok i was a lil dissapointed with it like somebody before said I was going to be. It had an AWESOME layout but it was so unbelieveably tame it reminded me of the smoothness from Millie at CP. The best parts of the ride were the zero-g and the massive loop. Which makes me think about Dominator at KD 3 hours from where I live. It has the same inverisions just without the zero-g . Makes me think it could wind up sucking whenever I get the chance to go to KD again. But yeah SKC was dissapointing It was a really good ride but too tame for such an awesome looking coaster. After that we ate the lunches we packed at the microscopic picnic area outside the park.(SFs way of saying &@#! you for not buying our ridiculously overpriced food!) After we ate I changed and went into the waterpark. It was pretty small but I didn't get to ride the one thing there I wanted to ride more than the others. The Tornado. It had the most ridiculously long line I saw in the park all day. I checked out the texas shaped wavepool which was actually REALLY SMALL with REALLY SMALL waves. It was cool it was shaped like texas but come on I thought everything was bigger in texas....So I rode the mat racer next to the wavepool. Now that was fun it took me a while to get my fat butt going but I zoomed past everyone it was a lot of fun. After that I went down the mine shaft slide which was fun but not worth the wait. then I checked out the lazy river.......the wave channel wasn't working which was really lame and it was unbelievably crowded. After that I figured I'd go check out whirlpool(proslide cannonbowl). I walked over on the painful pathway(that plastic stuff is awful on your feet!). I grabbed a tube and got in line which involved standing on the painful plastic stuff for an extended period of time until finally I was like &*#! it and crossed the rope to the walk on Big Bender slide. Ive been on a cannonbowl before at Emerald Pointe so I think I'll manage without this one. I don't understand why everybody seems to love slides with bowls or funnels but oh well. Imma coaster enthusiast not a waterpark enthusiast. After we went to White Water Bay we headed down to the minetown area. We decided to ride Road Runner Express which for a mine train was really a lot of fun.............After that oh my god probably one of the worst roller coasters I have ever ridden in my life. Rattler. I believed it should be renamed "SUCK: the ride." Now I have the credit I will never ride that bringer of pain ever again. Tt sucked so bad I'd rather go skydiving without a parachute. Surprisingly though It wasn't as bad as Hurler at Carowinds but this thing is still fricken AWFUL. Even the turnaround into the lift sucks its so shaky. The drop as the best part of the ride then you get to the top of the hill after the drop and the pain begins. pain pain pain. Then you go up this unusually long uphill portion which still manages to shake the crap out of you. Then the 3 hour helix begins which was slow and rough I couldn't imagine taking that awful helix at high speed it was so bad I'd rather ride shockwave and other togo death machines 200 times in a row. The tunnel was pretty cool but nothing could save this coaster. It was so bad I'd rather play find the hay in the needle stack naked. /end rant. After SUCK: the ride I wanted to ride the enterprise cause I've never ridden one. It was really a lot of fun but the cycle was so so short. I were probably 90 degrees from the ground for one spin. After that we rode gully washer which had a really long queue but oh well....The gully washer didn't get me wet at all but it got the rest of my family wet. But then again I'm sure most rapids rides will dissapoint me after Popeye at IoA so I'm cutting it some slack . After that I had my first "credit whore" experience YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY. I rode Rollschwhatever alone with a bunch of little kids it was boring you should of saw the pictures of me on it. But oh well CREDIT!!!!! After that we rode Superman in the front again which was fun. After that we got one last ride on Goliath and left. Overall Six Flags Fiesta texas is easily my 3rd favorite amusement park I've ever visited. It was very nice and pretty much all the rides were fun(mines Rattler...). Being my first six flags I noticed the very corporate feel to it I got really tired of hearing More Flags More Fun all day. I wonder if Shapiro even knows what Six Flags is named for. But oh well I enjoyed my day tremendously. Ill post some Goliath pictures later. Thanks for reading -Chase.
