  1. The evacuation system has me intrigued. I guess we all will have to wait until it's done to see how it is set up. The other 4 manufacturers that have built a vertical lift system all have a different system.
  2. Back to the new stuff- To be honest, I was feeling a bit "meh" with the Giant Loop ride. I've ridden the carny versions many times, both the original with the cages and the open air versions. Why not something from Mondial (Top Scan, Diablo, Jet Force, or Ultra Max)? A Zamperla Air Race 8.4? A Zierer Star Shape? I really liked Darien Lake before the Premier/Six Flags take over. I haven't gone there since MotoCoaster was new.
  3. I liked the twitter feed. It's nice to have a "go to" point to see all of your tweets in one spot, instead of having your tweets buried in everyone else's tweets that I'm following. I do have one minor nitpick: the font used in the buttons across the top of the page. I would prefer using a sans serif font, since the rest of the page uses sans serif font. The font kind of looks like an old 1980's font. :/ Someone mentioned a while back (on the 1st or 2nd page of comments) that there was a problem with scrolling. Just watch where your cursor is- once a scrollable window comes into focus with the cursor, that window starts scrolling. As long the cursor is out of any scrollable window, the entire page will scroll just fine.
  4. I wonder if Larson had a booth, and did they display a Flying Turns car?
  5. Wow! It's amazing how the next generation of the 4th Dimension coaster turns you into little kids!
  6. Looks like the people who made the model discovered Faller... I don't think Bruch would give up their Schwartzkopf speed racer that easily...
  7. I too loved Huss. My first experience with them was the Enterprise ride at Dorney Park. It then led to the Breakdance and the Condor ride at Morey's Pier in Wildwood. I've also ridden the Huss Flipper (Tornado that is currently traveling with the orange unit under Reithoffer Shows; it started out with the blue unit before it got transferred), North America's only Huss Magic at Marineland in Niagara Falls, Canada. Other Huss rides I've ridden: Top Spin (standard models), Troika, Airboat, Ufo, Rainbow, custom Rainbow (former Conestoga at Hersheypark), Ranger, the original Frisbee model, and Topple Tower. Marineland did take out their Topple Tower as well. It was an okay ride, did not have the aggressiveness that the Huss rides of the 80's had. That was their best time. The only news I've read was that they're bringing back the Condor ride into their portifolio, with a improved 2nd generation version. It's supposed to go to one of those Happy Valley parks in China for 2014.
  8. Now the million dollar question is: who's the manufacturer? Huss? Zamperla? Intamin?
  9. I wonder if the wild mouse would be a standard extended wild mouse, or Eberhard's Wilde Maus XXL that's going around the european fair circuit?
  10. On a happier note- Knoebel's doing fine. The creek did not overflow.
  11. I'm sure it'll be okay as long as the back is all black. Your back will be facing the cameras used in the shot.
  12. Rochester Institute of Technology (not to be mistaken with Ride Institute of Technology behind Hersheypark's viral marketing campaign for Skyrush) Big Shot Project for 2012 will feature Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, NY. The Big Shot will take place on Thursday, May 3rd 2012. Participants are to wear dark (black preferred) clothing and arrive at 8pm at the amusement park. Participants are to bring an hand-held light source, such as a flashlight or a camera flash unit. The photo will be taken at approximately 9pm. The link to the Big Shot page is here: http://www.rit.edu/cias/bigshot/BS_2012.html
  13. Reithoffer's is the main midway for Bloomsburg Fair, and I remember some of their rides. Flip N' Out is from the 90's! Interesting ride, but not as good as a Huss Top Spin. I was disappointed they moved the Tornado (Huss Flipper) to the Orange unit. The Blue unit is the one that visits Bloomsburg. I remember the Raupenbahn, a rare Mack Caterpillar that Reithoffer's had in the 80's.
