  1. I will be coming on Sunday and the park said the coaster will be running!
  2. Whoops I thought it was this Saturday but if Renegade isn't ready by Saturday be plans to open on Sunday than I will be there. I would call the park to make sure it is ready.
  3. I plan to be there but I hope Renegade is ready this weekend. I hope it will be a good ride! I think it will blow everything out of the water at VF.
  4. Whoops I messed up on my vote. Was talking to my best friend on the phone and accidently picked "fun" when I wanted to say "wicked cool fun". When talking to one of the designers on the phone a few months ago he say ride in the back seat and you will be blown away on the first drop so I'm expecting an awesome ride in the back seat. But it still won't beat Voyage. Despite that I think Renegade will be a top tier ride. I am assuming if Renegade lives up to its hype or expectation that if it is not a top 10 ride for sure than somehting went wrong. I'm holding myb reath that Renegade will definate make top ten if not top five. I'm expecting it to hit my top 5!
  5. I know that it is downhill but if Voyage was an Intamin woodie instead of a TGG woodie using El Toro type trains would it still be slower because of increased friction? I've seen several woodies (Not the Intamin type) with longer track than El Toro or Colossos but with shorter lifts. Examples includes Voyage, Mean Streak, Hades, Texas Giant & Shivering Timbers. This is not to bash Intamin woodies since they sound like awesome rides. For example El Toro has more hills than High Roller at VF so it is not that short but you'd think they could make the layout longer with the height they put in the ride so my question is does the Intamin trains have more friction than a PTC or GCI MF train? Intamin woodies seems to be very forceful world class rides and I'd like to see a park in FL get one maybe that new park the Miami Zoo is trying to build.
  6. So what is the latest new on hte $200 adventure theme park with roller coasters. From what I understand the zoo has to aquire some land from the county or coast guard or something like that? Any idea when the big park would open?
  7. So does the Intamin woodies really loses much more energy than traditional woodies because of the polyurthene(sp?) wheels? I mean El Toro is a couple feet taller than Voyage yet has a track length that is 2000 feet shorter than Voyage. But Voyage is still going at least 50 mph in the very last tunnel!! I also notice that Colossos @ Heide Park has only around 4500 feet and even that slows down at the very end. So how much height is needed on a Intamin woodie with 7500-8000 feet of track to keep the extreme sustained airtime on El Toro thoughout such a long ride (1.5 mile)? Would 1 or 2 bench cars work better at keeping the energy up?
  8. I posted this on Coasterbuzz and Jeff closed because it is a wishlist: I think CP should build a large woodie on the beach behind Wicked Twister. GCI or Intamin seems like the most likely choice or they could remove Mean Streak and put a quality woodie there. Also within a few year (5-10 years) Magnum should retire, sell it to a smaller park and be replaced by a 250-299 foot tall out & back B&M hyper coaster with about 6500 feet of track and with at least 30+ seconds of airtime to get the steelie airtime record.
  9. May favorites On wood coasters: PTC Buzzbars Steel coasters: B&M clamshells Can't stand springless racheting lapbars or one without enough padding. All Arrow restainst lapbars and horsecollars sucks you know what really badly!!
  10. My favorite thing on the planet besides my girlfriend!!! World's GREATEST ride!! And that is a FACT!!!
  11. That is because Bush is buddies with the oil company and the healthcare industry so he's all for companies (Bleep)ing people over!
  12. But David Gilmour is pissing me off by playing such a short tour. I live near Minneapolis and he won't come near my area. Chicago is the closest show! Fat lazy bastard. I hope Roger Waters makes a return to Minnespolis when he plays the USA this fall. I saw him on his last tour and he will do the entire DSOTM album.
  13. On Jeff's podcast about the CP 2007 rumor. Jeff think he knew what CP is getting and was complaining that adults believed the 500 footer rumor. How does he know it is not going an Arrow fishhook coaster. They don't take much space. I don't think it will be a 500 footer and hoping for a record breaking Intamin woodie. Also one time a few years ago I posted a thread asking why none of the year round theme parks in the USA has an airtime hyper coaster like Nitro or SROS @ SFNE and he closes the thread saying "The one hell of a wishlist!" Never the less I was pissed. I still post there sometimes because some of the people especially Raven Maven are decent people but I think Jeff thinks his sh** doesn't stink. I like this. I think that old picture of Elissa with the loose lapbar on Cheetah's lifthill and the POVs of the coasters made Jeff assume that you guys broke parks rule BUT how do they know Elissa didn't pull the lapbar down farther before the train reached the top. Most likely she pulled the bar down to an acceptable level. It is also possible that the operator may have allowed a looser lapbar back then. Elissa did NOTHING wrong IMHO! As we all know ALL of the POV videos on this site were taken with the park's permission. No wonder Robert Vlands (nogodforme) hates CB (or CFB as Robert would put it)! After hearing that podcast it shows Jeff's true colors.
  14. So why did it close and when do they plan to reopen it? Is this another one of these Steel Dragon crap where they keep it as a lawn ornament?
  15. Ejector air on a GCI? I didn't think that was possible. I thought they just want floater air. Not that there is anything wrong with floater air. All airtime is good as long as it is noticeable.
  16. On a wooden trough track I don't think you will want to go much faster than 24 MPH.
  17. Wasn't one of those parks scheduled to close.
  18. I've ridden MF@CP in 2001 and the trains felt kind of cramped. I'm 5'-8" and about 170 lbs. But I mostly ridden in the back seat with one ride in the front seat. But I've yet to ride an Intamin woodie like Balder, Colossos or El Toro (not opened yet). But since you've ridden Balder and I assume you have ridden MF which ride would I have more room (especially legroom)? Also what has more room PTCs trains or Intamin woodie trains?
  19. Are there any plans to change the trains on the Starliner? I know they had that stupid kid that get thrown out of the Tripple Hurricane while standing up. But I don't think Starliner is all that intense AFAIK and I assumed it had a perfect safty record.
  20. I had trouble getting the google image to show up big enough to see the details. Can they aquired more land if they need to?
