    I know quite a lot about Donkeys!
  1. You're an idiot. Please leave our forums so it can be made smarter for the rest of us. Thanks. Okay Robb. You run a good site and it's yours. I apologize that I didn't see the April fools angle to that video.
  2. The video didn't really say enough to be an April fools joke. In 5 months when they announce are they going to say, "We said 'they' but it was April 1st and it didn't mean anything?" I don't get it. And I'm a little smart. I've been tested. I still think this is the start of a series of teasers and clues till the announcement like Holiday World did with the journal.
  3. The dueling music and showdown statement were from August. The clues are real but don't necessarily mean a dueling coaster.
  4. "They're coming." "Duel at High Noon" music. "Mean Streak loses showdown." I think the hints show this coaster will duel with itself or will be two coasters. I'd like two please. One with a lift and airtime and the other with a launch and inversions. We could find out once and for all which is more popular. I guess this all could mean there is something plural in the name and theming but today I'm feeling like a glass is half full kind of guy. I would expect this is the start of a series of teasing clues leading to the announcement like Holiday World did.
  5. They do not expect it to be a secret in that sense. The timing of the announcement influences sales for this and next season. They will announce when it benefits them. Also details are not known. Delaying announcing the stats gives other parks less time to one up them. If they had announced already then it is possible whatever records are included would be broken a year sooner.
  6. If that is Tony posting a pic of a forum I think there is some irony in that I would get if I were smarter.
  7. Maverick was not that awesome anyway. Something more like Stormrunner would be better. And I don't think they are polling enthusiasts without a budget for a decent custom steel. Stop underestimating this park.
  8. Valleyfair! became Valleyfair. Camp Snoopy at MOA became Nickelodeon Universe. Actually it was Knotts Camp Snoopy, then Camp Snoopy, then Park at MOA, then Nickelodeon Universe.
  9. I think some people here are selling HW short in assuming the ride must be tame or small. If you honestly think that is all that is appropriate for the park then recommend that, but don't assume you have to pull your punches because HW cannot handle the rides you really like. They were pretty clear that they intend to grow the park considerably and that would intail more than just a family coaster, although one could be included. I think a launched looping headbanger is not the best choice for a first steel. If it is looping, a B&M invert is the best choice. However an Intamin ai
  10. If they are going to go looping, then Intamin is not a bad choice, lift hill or launch. They would have to give up hopes of a number one steel if they went that route. In my opinion it is possible to get to number one with over the shoulder restraints, but you have to have at least double the budget, and know what you are doing, and even then there are no gurantees. However, if they can go launch, then maybe they can just afford an Intamin Hyper straight up. Bizzaro keeps its number one ranking not because its layout is so great that its unbeatable, but they are just not building anymore l
  11. While the GP has a wider range of what appeals to them, it's not like they would dislike an Intamin hyper or megalite. In addition to what enthusiasts want and what the GP wants is what HW wants. I asked Leah during ERT what the goals were but she was not answering that one. So I said there were several routes they could go if they wanted a family coaster, however if they wanted to top the charts, there was pretty much one option. HW has shown in the past that they want top rated coasters, and if that is the case now, we can help them get there. If they want a looper, we can give them tip
  12. For those who attended HWN this year, you know that HW is looking for suggestions on what to build for a steel coaster. What did you fill out on your surveys? I recommended an Intamin airtime machine.
  13. I'm pretty sure the best airtime moment is on that hill between Tell City and Santa Claus depending on who is driving. However they were reprofiling that so it may be done now. One of the best airtime moments is not discussed enough, I think due to a tunnel. Magnum's third hill in the ejector seat (1-3) is amazing. Other OMG airtime moments include a few hills on Shivering Timbers, the drop on Cyclops, Raven's 5th if you know when to ride, Superman: Ride of Steel (America) on the return hill after the helix, and back seat of Voyage first drop (hands up, look up, and it feels like you ju
  14. My favorite invert isn't even a B&M... ...sooo honorable mention to Volcano 1. Raptor 2. the Batmen clones--these are seriously great rides, i'll lump them together to keep them from taking up my entire list 3. Montu 4. Fire Dragon 5. Ice Dragon Talon and Patriot are also decent rides. Alpie is forceless. And I keep forgetting that I rode Great Bear. Must say something about the ride.
  15. Hope its not too late to kick this thread up and join the discussion. These past two days I read through the Mitch Hawker poll threads for 2009 and 2010. There was so much in both about Voyage. Voyage is my favorite coaster--by far. In fact, I would find it hard to believe someone out there is a bigger fan of the ride than me. I have not been on a pre-fab, but they look awesome, and I am sure I would love them. I do understand why some don't like Voyage. What I don't get is why those who do not like Voyage cannot believe that people who like it, actually do. It is not fanboyism. It
