  1. The last one, thats the kind of stuff that cracks me up. who actually does that? My dad loves to point out all the stupid things that happen in infomercials. Used be a perk of living at home back in the day. But also, why do I need to put my hand directly onto a burner? I get it, its pretty fire resistent. Show me a real life application, lol.
  2. Oh wow, thought he was a solid actor. 54 is too young, especially because he looked like he had continued to keep himself in great shape.
  3. Park was empty today! Great day. Bringing home two loaves of cinnamon bread. Great day i must say.
  4. Quick question because i don't remember. Backpacks, does dollywood have a bin for each ride? I remember that TT does but cant remember if TH does and does Wild Eagle have a place as well?
  5. Thank ya much. Hitting that up then heading to Myrtle Beach for R & R. And some golf. And probably tomfoolery on the strip.
  6. And as inexpensive as QBots are at Dollywood, it's never a waste of money. I expected it to be more, but that is actually a great idea. And just so Im ready for exactly how it works since Im only used to Disneys FastPass and CF's FastLane... I assume it has multiple uses. Queues us for later in the day, all 3-4 of us depending which one we get. Do we get to choose our row/seats? Or is there some designated row we use? And the Advert on the side of my screen is from Cars.com telling me there is a Porsche Carrera GT for the low price of only 375,000. Or a Mayback Type 62 for 349,995. Interesting.
  7. Heading to Dollywood this Saturday. Any idea what kind of crowds to expect? Has school started to hopefully keep some of them home? Would Q2Q be advantageous this time of year? Or waste of money?
  8. Few shots from the Pirelli World Challenge at Mid Ohio Sportscar Course. They ran the same weekend as the American LeMans series that I went to go watch. These guys are always entertaining to watch.
  9. I really think this will be one of my favourite rides in the park. Im going to Dollywood here end of the month so Ill have something to look forward to. I really only go for Maverick, Raptor, Magnum and some of the flats. Im sure Maverick will always have a big line, its a fan favourite when I ask random people after the ride. Despite it being "Rough", people still love its intensity. I think the wingrider sensation coupled with the decent ride time and double keyhole elements will keep this one popular. I also think itll provide a very fun experience. I am eagerly awaiting this ride. Cedar Point needed something solid and reliable. This should fit that billing. And it also happens to be absolutely gorgeous as well, which always make viewing that much better.
  10. You are correct. Yea, I liked that too. But im an aquarium nut anyways.
  11. Yea, the placement of it is entirely due to timing. Theres a formula when it comes to determining optimal placement with regards to dispatch, how long it takes to get up the lift and how long it takes to traverse that first part of the track. Would it be better with a longer ending? Sure. I could re-arrange Voyage which I feel personally is almost perfect and add something to it. But for what it is, I think its going to be great. It will be INSANELY photogenic with that scheme. I cannot wait to get my camera to feast its lens on it.
  12. It doesnt go over the parking lot. Only the supports do. Its not a parking lot coaster if its all over grass, unless there will be parking there. Frontier Trail needs Mean Streak to be destroyed and GCI/TGG to be installed or RMC'd. Until then, not even Maverick can haul in enough people back there. Everyone congregates there and swiftly moves back to the middle/front of the park. Im sure in due time (next capital investment) will be back there. Maybe (hopefully) dealing with that waste of space called Mean Streak. Terrible ridership anyways. ^ Track does NOT go over the lot. Goes over a path connecting the lot to the park. Of which Im sure will be employee only or will be more covered. If thats your definition of parking lot coaster you are reaching really far for that.
  13. 170 sounds about right. It looks pretty close to Wicked Twister. You do know that WT is 215ft tall right? Not sure what 170 would have to do with WT... Oh, this looks FANTASTIC. What another GREAT centerpiece for the parks entrance. Raptor and Gatekeeper. I might just go back and forth between the two.
  14. So, kinda fun. This photo below which I posted on the last page, I posted to Canon's Facebook page just to show it off, I thought it was a pretty stellar shot myself. Well, Canon on Friday posted it on their main wall for all to see as the "Fan Photo of the Week". I was at the Mid Ohio American LeMans race Fri-Sun and I was super stoked the whole weekend because of it. Just a little bit of bragging. Its really cool when you get noticed on a decently sized stage.
  15. I dont see all that OMFG crazy though. Theres an obviously awesome drop, very cool weird twisting turn/hill, then a low turn, a few small hills, cool turn, another cool turn then the barrel rolls. There is no double down/up, thats marketing jazz. If the layout, which is an NL Layout was exported using CAD information, then the airtime will mostly just be momentary pop of ejector. Which is good but I feel the layouts quite a bit uninspired. Its like they had a few specific elements they wanted to be in the ride no matter what and the goal was how to incorporate them. I just dont at all see a lot of thought that was put into the layout - all the thought went into a few elements. Which you can read as I think itll be crap and youd be wrong, I think itll be an exceptionally fun ride. I just think itll lack either a bit of length or more substance. Id prefer to see the hills with a more circular radius and maybe a helix and few more turns. Still, going to be quite an unusual and unique ride. I think it will be that way for quite a bit too.
  16. It looks like the layout was made with NoLimits actually... So if they exported the CAD data like Gravity Group has done, it should be to scale and should be accurate come video time.
  17. The Cache coughed this up too: Details Page: YEP we’ve gone and done it! Outlaw Run is a wooden coaster ride the likes of which the world has never seen. It’s fast, fearless and wild…just like the west. Dare to board our stagecoach – a first-of-its-kind coaster vehicle, authentic in every detail and custom-built to keep you safe and comfy. Then hang onto your hat as we plumb drop you a hair-raising 162 feet just ‘bout straight down – 81° to be exact. And if that’s not enough, you’ll be double-barrel rolled while traveling 80 feet uphill through Missouri’s picture-perfect Ozarks. Sure as you live, it’ll have you hollerin’ your head off. Take a gander at the layout and some facts about this amazing coaster and its makers so you ain’t took by surprise when you catch the coach! Layout Page: Steepest drop in the west . . . heck, anywhere. It’s true. We cross our hearts this drop will turn your stomach upside down. It’s the steepest one for a wooden coaster ANYWHERE on our big earth. And if you think the drop won’t get you, then hold on for the two barrel rolls which literally will leave you wondering which way is up. ‘Cause we’re not stonehearted cads like those dastardly cowards who are rumored to be lurking in Outlaw Run, here’s a head start. Study these fancy pictures to be ready for the ride ahead. Outlaw Run is a Record Breaker! But alas, cant find any of the pics cached.
  18. Yes, but the park has to make a choice now. 1 - Upset people who go to the park with intent to purchase Fast Lane, but find out that Fast Lane is sold out. 2 - Lower demand by increasing the price, so the guests wanting Fast Lane can still buy and upseting those who are not willing to pay the incremental cost. Cedar Point went for the second choice. I could have sworn when I was there Saturday, that I saw they were "Sold Out" Copied from CPs website: So the problem isnt the cost, its the fact that they have a limit thats too high. If your upper limit makes the lines too long, you need to lower the limit. Upping the cost is one way but if you already have a limit and when it maxes out its "too busy" then the real cure is to lower the amount of tickets given.
  19. Isnt that what having a cap on the amount of tickets is supposed to do?
  20. I think it just means increased business. If you can fill both lines, then either everything else in the waterpark/main park has no line or HW is continuing to increase the counts on their ticket sales. Which is great. Just means more amazing coasters
  21. 9/9/2012 17 I dont usually take part in these but thats what I came up with for just rearranging.
  22. The orange bike is more photogenic. I wasted something like 40 shots trying to get the perfect one of him. I got a few that turned out but the angle on this RedBull rider is perfect. Im feeling good about the rest of the images now.
  23. Heres another one. So far, best one in the set. But the set is only 4-5 so I may find better. But I love the color scheme on this bike and the clarity on the shot was really exceptional.
  24. Not too bad at all Id say. I wouldnt be too terribly fond of that wheelbase you mentioned but thats what you were going for. I like sleaker lines so Id have something coming off the headrest/rollbar onto the trunk. The trunk and lights remind me of a MR2 Spyder which I dont really care for. I kinda dig the bulky fenders though. I would. Thats one of the main reasons I love my WRX
