  1. I count kiddee coasters, water coasters (JTA, but not flumes), alpine coasters (even though I have not ridden one yet), both sides of racing coasters and relocated coasters. I do not count powered coasters. They are not gravity driven.
  2. I will second your thoughts on WOF Haunt. We went last year and after having been to haunts at lots of parks (SFOG, SFMM, KD, BGW, SFStL, KBF, etc) I will say that WOF's haunt is by far the best one I have ever been to. While I don't care for the park that much due to no stand out rides (yes, even Prowler was just so-so), it is still a nice park with a kick ass haunt. Cornstalkers was amazing there!
  3. ^^I have seen that ride at a couple of other parks. I am almost positive that Carowinds has one in their kids section. I think I may have seen one at WOF too.
  4. Rides I thought would be good from all the positive reviews: Boulder Dash - Maybe it's because we rode El Toro the day before but definitely NOT a #1 (even top 5) coaster for me Bizarro (SFNE) - Expected too much I guess. It was fun but not amazing Millennium Force - I had heard how it was everyone's fav coaster and so amazing. It was amazing...amazingly boring. Most overrated coaster EVER! Magnum - Painful and yes I sat in the magic seat Cheetah Hunt - Snoozefest Raptor - fun but not all that Lightning Racers - at the bottom of the GCI list for me Phoenix - I don't get the hype. At all. Nitro - Near the bottom of the US B&M hyper list for me Rip, Ride, Rockit - Horrible, Horrible, Horrible Prowler - So not what people make it out to be. Rides I thought would suck but liked: Mantis - Heard terrible things. I liked it. 2nd best stand up in my opinion. Revolution - Even with OTSR's, I thought it was fun and only hit my head once. It would be better w/o the OTSR's though. Rolling Thunder - Wasn't bad at all. Wildcat (Hershey) - Expected it to be terrible. It's better than Lightning Racers. Hypersonic XLC - I know I am in the minority but I loved it. Didn't hit my head either. Kept it against the seat and had no problem. Hades 360 - Rough but a very intense layout Raging Bull - Great layout. Really fun.
  5. As for the Statix trains, I was at BGW in October and was looking for the Griffon train as it is one I am missing from my collection and I asked several shops and no one had it. I also looked for 305 at KD and they didn't seem to have any of those either. If someone has one of these they would be interested in selling or know where I can get either one, please let me know!
  6. ^Perspective. Thank you! People here are just whiney spoiled little bitches that don't appreciate what we really have. I, for one, am really excited to have a giga so close to home.
  7. Dollywood and SDC are hands down some of the best parks in the US. I understand why someone who is just into coasters wouldn't be thrilled because they have only 5 or 6 coasters each but what they do have are really good, fun rides. I personally think that Thunderhead is a top 5 woodie and Outlaw Run too and I have ridden 332 coasters to date and been to most of the major parks in the US. The people that work at both of these parks go above and beyond to help you. I remember at an event once that an employee walked all the way from the back of the park to the front to get me change for a $20 during ERT because the park was not open and there was no place for me to get change. I can promise you will NEVER get that at a SF or CF park. SDC rolled out the red carpet for my group last year when we visited. There is a reason that people love these parks so much, not to mention the amazing food and the excellent theming! For me, I don't get why people are all gaga over Disney parks. I am not a huge fan. I would much rather go to Dollywood or SDC.
  8. Millennium Force, Nitro, Boulder Dash and Bizarro (SFNE) were all underwhelming coming from what we had heard. MF sucked after the first drop, Nitro is at the bottom of the B&M hyper list, Boulder Dash was fun but not much airtime as what I heard and Bizarro had maybe 2 spots of decent airtime but it was painful.
  9. ^Really? GASM gives good airtime everytime I ride it in the magic seat (middle seat, last row of the train.) Yes, It can be rough sometimes but nothing compared to GC. I won't even ride that piece anymore.
  10. Do not, I repeat, do not go during spring break! It is the worst I have ever seen it at that time. Tried to go with my neice a couple years ago and all lines were 2-3 hours. Horrible!
  11. Our park opens in mid-late March. Come in the first 2 months if you can. The park opens on weekdays once school is out which is late May/early June. Sundays are perfect before school gets out, especially if you can be at the entrance gate right before the park opens (and not just getting to the parking lot.) Go straight to the back of the park first (everyone hits the rides at the front first.) Hit Superman, GASM, Ninja and SkyScreamer back there (should not have any lines at all first thing in the morning.) If you are a credit whore, hit the kiddie coaster on the way to the mine train, then head to Acrophobia and GA Cyclone. Continue around to GA Scorcher, DDD, Batman, Mindbender and leave Goliath for last. That usually works and gets most people to the back of the park as you are heading back to the front. Superman, DDD and Acrophobia get the longest lines in the park.
  12. Corkscrew-Cedar Point Demon-SFGrAm & CGA Revolution-SFMM Screamin' Eagle-SFStL
  13. Cornball Express, Cyclops and Wooden Warrior take the cake for me.
  14. Planning a trip to CW and that area May of next year. I am seeing that the park opened for daily opearation the week after Victoria Day. Called the park today and they said they didn't open for daily operation until the first week of June. Can any of you in the area advise on this so I can set dates accordingly?
  15. The people on this site baffle me. Everyone bitches and complains about Carowinds getting a record breaking coaster but then turn around and say that it is great that SFOG is getting 2 normal, run of the mill rides you can ride at any carnival? WTH? Parks like MM, GAm and SFFT are getting major coasters within 2 years of each other and parks like SFOG are haven't had anything since 11 and even that wasn't major. I am not a "we should get a new coaster every year" person, but come on if you are going to give us a flat, at least make it worth our time (giant frisbee or screamin' swing.) I, for one, will not be buying a SF season pass next year. All my money is going to Dollywood and Cedar Fair since they are the one's building good rides!!!
  16. Coasterchitchat, you must not have ridden Goliath at SFOG. The helix on that makes lots of people grey out.
  17. Yes, if it was Intamin (even if it was a clone) they would all be screaming that it was the best thing ever. Or if it was a Disney ride with an ass load of theming. Ever since it was announced the majority here has been all whine, bitch, moan, repeat, 50 million times. For all those people, please stay at home. I will enjoy shorter lines for what should be way better than Millennium Force or any other super over rated ride that people love. You will never please some people. Can I have some of those shots Jarmor?
  18. ^^You guys forgot a couple more.... -Intamin is the best company ever, period. Everything they do rules all. -B&M's are forceless -Millennium Force is the best ride in the world -TTD/KK is a one trick pony
