  1. I always force myself to memorize a coaster's layout -- just an anal quirk. But Voyage I cannot figure out. Even when I watch the POV, after the third hill, I just get like "WTF IS GOING ON!" I'm not even gonna attempt to learn this one because it'll make that first ride absolutely insane!
  2. Where's the petition to thank them for killing Mr. Six off?
  3. I think I've given up on Real World. I couldn't even watch the last couple seasons. It seems like all they did was go out drinking, have sex, and sleep late. It just wasn't entertaining at all. Although, that dude in Austin getting punched in the face was pretty entertaining.
  4. When I rode Flight of Fear one time, we launched and went up into the first loop. When we were almost completely upside down, the train stopped and rolled back. It was fun! Then they turned the lights on in the bowl, and physically pushed us back into the station. While this was an accident at PKD, the same exact thing happened on the same ride (Joker's Jinx), but that case was done intentionally. We were shooting the commercial, and I guess they wanted to save time, so they just launched us slow enough to roll back . We did that over and over. I skipped school that day to do the commercial shoot.
  5. That's strange because, according to a source, I heard that particular Top Spin was built many years ago and sat at the Huss plant until SFGAM bought it. Someone put a down payment down for the Top Spin, but never paid the rest, so it sat at the Huss plant for ages, until SFGAM came along. Before it came to SFGAM is was sitting outside pink and rusty. From what I've heard, the SFGAM Top Spin can physically only do 4 flips, due to some mechanical problems. So, if you got 6 flips, consider yourself lucky (in more ways that one )
  6. But what I'm saying is -- they are mirror images if youre playing RCT, but not from an engineering stand point. The fact is, they have different heights, different drop angles, different sized elements, etc.
  7. Where did you hear they are mirror-images? They are similar, but quite different. Wow, I think Mantis has just about the ugliest color scheme of any coaster.
  8. ... RNRC holla I climbed on top of the coaster to get this shot. Be grateful! Mmm hmm, sweet tits All Hail The Storm! So true... my parents and I, taken in the 80's I went in a chat room once and this man tried to hook up with me
  9. Cedar Fair is a business. It's really quite simple: Subway = money, Crotchety Old Building = no money. Parks are there to make revenue, and corporations don't really care about nostalgia. Nostaligia works if you're in the PA mountains, but it doesn't fly well with companies like Cedar Fair.
  10. Was that a typo or do you really think there is a park called "Wold Adventures"?
  11. I think I've ridden all the B&M standups in the USA, except for the one at Carowinds. I would call a tie between Scorcher and Riddler. Both offer different styles, and both do it perfectly. Scorcher does what the early B&M standups do, but it does it gracefully. I really can't comment on Iron Wolf or PGA's Vortex, seeing as I haven't ridden them in about 10 years! Both were smooth and wonderful then, but I gotta trust the population when 99% of you all say that those two have gone straight to hell. Then we have the two Handicapped 'Tards: Chang and Mantis. There's so much wrong with these two coasters. It's almost offensive. I honestly hate both of them with a passion. Chang, Mantis, and SUF are at the very bottom of my B&M list -- well, actually, they're probably some of my least favorites of all time.
  12. Maybe all they could afford right now is the prototype version? Remember, they can add on to the Skywheel coaster whenever they want. Maybe next year, they'll add a couple of inversions like the one in Madrid.
  13. What does it matter if EE has side-to-side motion? There are only lap bars. Next time you ride a Schwarzkopf with lap bars, notice how far your body/head is pushed around. Revolution and its laterals were fine until they put on shoulder bars. Unless Disney is planning to retrofit EE with OTSR's, I don't think there's anything to worry about. My $.02
  14. You think Hurricane Cat. 5 is rough? Did you ride Cheetah this year?
  15. Why are some of you acting all irrational over Mr. Six? If Snyder didn't kill him now, the dancing dude would have slowly commited social suicide. Better get rid of him while he's popular, as opposed to overkill where everyone vomits at the sound of the Vengaboys.
  16. This is the first outward facing Zamperla Discovery I have seen. I believe the original model faced inwards. I rode the inward facing one at Martin's Fantasy Island (NY) and it was one fo the better frisbee-type rides.
  17. One of my favorite compact models is the Windstorm (aka Hurricane) -- made by SDC, S&MC, and Zamperla.
  18. That "indoor Frisbee" you photographed is a Zamperla Discovery.
  19. I have about 6,500 songs in my computer library and I can't find a damn thing to listen to! -kip- [edit] I just put on Ace of Base :shock: [edit2] OMG, Ace of Base blows! Why is it on my computer??
  20. Meiso uses tires as a part of their braking system. The train hits the tires at the end of the ride (and theyre quite squeaky and loud!), the tires slow the train into the regular brakes. As far as I know, all or most Meisho coasters use these tires. Some Meisho coasters don't even have standard brakes, the tires do all the work. -kip- [edit] Here is a photo of a nicer-looking Meisho shuttle
