  1. Yeah, I had to pay about $50 for their celebrity endorsement!
  2. I'm selling three REAL vintage tshirts from the 80's right now on eBay. The shirts are all about "small" and are: Z-Force at SFOG which was taken to SFMM and renamed Flashback (now defunct) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300266136428&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123 Ninja at SFStL (formerly called Six Flags Over Mid-America) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300266156758&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123 Vortex at King's Island http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300266131144&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123 Just thought I would pass along these classic roller coaster merchandise gems!
  3. Maybe this is just common sense, but do not use your credit card at a pay phone. My cell phone went dead last week at Disneyland and we didn't have any change. We were late for meeting our ride and had to find out where they were picking us up. Thinking that I would be charged the regular 25 cents, I did it. The phone call was local and was less than a minute. When I got my credit card bill, $7.60 was charged! I called the company and they said it was $5.50 in operator fees, and misc. fees. WTF! So just to warn you other naive people out there like me, just ask someone for change for a dollar.
  4. What is closed, the park or X? The park will be open when I will be there, most likely the 19th. Has X been pretty good lately, or do I need to worry?
  5. I will also be there about that time, but is it better to go during the week? What about X or the current status of the other coasters there? We are planning on going to Magic Mountain, Knotts, Disney, Pacific Park, and Adventure City (since I heard it was closing or something). Any other typical tourist things anyone would recommend? Thank you in advance!
  6. I'm having trouble downloading some of the videos. I got the Sea World and the PKD one to work but the other ones start downloading and then a few seconds later it says download complete. When I open the file it says "file corrupted". Is anyone else having this problem? Edit: Ok nevermind, I got it to work.
  7. ^^ RCDB and Screamscape say Joyland's owners are trying to reopen it for 2005. Are you sure it will be closed?
  8. Timberland Twister is pretty fun, but its nothing amazing. Same for Ripsaw, but Ripsaw is really smooth and it feels like your just gliding around. TT was actually not as smooth as I thought it would be when I went last summer. And if you are a really big coaster credit whore (like myself) then you can do the Lil' Shaver coaster. The log ride and the Mighty Axe ride are both pretty fun as well. All in all, Camp Snoopy is as fun as you could have at a mall, but geared more towards families rather than thrill seekers. Oh and in the mall, try to visit the "As Seen On TV" store. Its kind of fun.
  9. Yeah I hate when people think that the local Six Flags is the only one in the world. Or a girl asked me the other day "Do you think they have different rides at other Six Flags? Wouldn't that be cool, because I'm sick of SFGAm's roller coasters." :shock: The funny thing is, before I became an enthusiast, I'm not sure how much I actually knew about different parks either. I'm sure we've all said some pretty stupid things about coasters in the past.
  10. Damn it! I hope it goes somewhere else so I can still get the credit. I hate when a coaster is just scraped instead of sold. I wish parks would give more warning ahead of time to when they are going to take something out. I like when some parks say "Come ride it for its last season" so at least people know what to expect.
  11. Oh crap, are their really ticks at Williams Grove?! I am going there this summer so I'll remember to watch out.
  12. I'd say that this weeks favorite for me is the Bumps and Bruises video. It is so true what us enthusiasts go through, just to get a credit.
  13. Ok I know this topic is about Kingda Ka but I have a SFGAdv question. This might be stupid but is Viper operating? SBNO? Defunct? I thought I heard something about it going to be scraped this year but I'mnot sure.
