  1. I will mention this as I remember it being brought up when Terminator was announced. I distinctly remember hearing something along the lines of the Mummy being intact for the 2010 coaster. Not sure if this rings any bells, but just thought I would point that out. So if it is a THBS, which I hope it is NOT, we might have cheap cardboard cut outs of Brendon Fraiser instead of Tony Hawk. Oh joy.
  2. I ended mine with a Mamba ride at Worlds of Fun Saturday night, I got my Prowler night ride, which was amazing, but not as great as some of the day runs I had. I still have it in a virtual tie with Voyage, but I plan on riding both again next year! Great season for me though! 3 new parks, got credit number 100, as well as a new number one coaster! Can't wait until 2010!
  3. Prowler on Saturday night! I can't let Racer be my last credit...that was in August! Will be my first Prowler night run.

  5. So ever since about Tuesday, anytime I try and open No Limits, it says not responding. I am running Vista, any suggestions BESIDES getting rid of Vista? I have heard that a lot, I just want a quick fix if possible.
  6. Funny story, my sisters friends run that maze, build it, rent the place out etc. They have a blast doing it. I did Saw last year and it was amazing. I would do it again this year, but I won't be back in Cali until December, still a great thing to do!
  7. If you have a chance, you should swing a little more West and grab the Prowler credit at Worlds of Fun! That ride is worth the extra distance alone!
  8. In the week time difference between my rides, there was a noticeable difference in intensity, hopefully I get to ride this again in the next month or so, I am going through Prowler withdraw!
  9. I rode Prowler 2 weeks ago for the first time, and it is absolutely amazing. I have gotten 5 rides now, and the back row is absolutely amazing. It jumped to my favorite wooden coaster, to my number 2 overall coaster, even though it will probably change come August.
  10. I thought it was going to Laser Snake Horse on Fire in the Dark with neon lights and $8 waters and a strong smell of herbs? When did it change?
  11. I just became the happiest little Transformers nerd on the face of the planet! YAY! If they DARE screw this up, I will unleash 'The Thirteen' on their arses so they NEVER ruin an AMAZING MOVIE AGAIN! If Shia LeBiotch has his voice in it=failure!
  12. I was at the park for a short while yesterday. They have started pouring the cement base for the coaster. No pictures as I left my camera in my car, there is more wood in the corner, tons of it. That's all I really have to report on. The park had a surprising amount of people for noon on a Friday during the school year. Lots of kids were there. I was shocked.
  13. The lift supports were originally the auto supports, no wide structure, no catwalks or railings. From there I eliminated certain areas, which made it have the intamin look to it, and then ever footer that is down i put in by hand. I did have to make one tower of lift supports. All in all the lift supports took approximately 4 hours from start to finish. It took forever, it was the most tedious thing in no limits I have ever done, but it looks amazing, so I will probably do that for the rest of my Intamin hypers/mega's (hint for next coaster maybe?) I still have a few things to work on. More comments/criticism welcome, please be as harsh as you like.
  14. Now I know this is not perfect, but I thought I would release it to get some feedback. The double up double up with lift hill in background diving drop overbank small overbank layout Comments/Criticism greatly appreciated. overhaul.zip
  15. I like the constructive criticism, it helps me out a lot. I have been trying my best to work out all the kinks in wooden coasters, my predominant coaster style, so it helps, so thanks.
  16. I first uploaded it at another site, that's why but I will change that right now.
  17. Just a project that I thought I would share, its an Intamin Prefab woodie. It is named after an Avenged Sevenfold song, Unbound (The Wild Ride). I have been playing No Limits for a while now so I thought it was time to show some of my progress. Length: 5,940 Height: 168 feet Drop: 158 feet Speed: 67 mph Features: 3 90 degree turns. 3 trains 7 cars each. Silver Gold and Black Comments/Criticism GREATLY appreciated Unbound.zip Unbound
  18. I am praying for a retheme of the back area, to "apocalyptic earth" or something of the sort. It would fit well if the ride is themed to Terminator, and Deja Vu can easily be themed something different, or take on a theme like mentioned. The sad thing is, that is a pretty dead area of the park. Maybe a future dark ride in that back corner would help for an apocalyptic earth theme...
  19. It's not real blood, but it looks incredible! That is at the very beginning before you truly even start.
  20. Alright, I just went through the entire thread and I have to say this is hands down the best RCT3 park I have ever seen! Keep it up!
  21. I believe the group can be as large as 10 but I am not sure. I went with my sister and brother and law. My sister ended up going with her two friends who work it so we wouldn't scare her, which we would have, so we just went the two of us. I think the ideal number would be from four to eight. Two was not enough but each monster so to say had fun with the two of us. They decided to send out a message to all the workers saying we were coming through, which made it even more fun.
  22. The way to start the maze is the best beginning to a maze ever. They show a video with jigsaw and he gives you instructions, there are 4 tubes with red buttons on the inside, to begin you must set all 4 off at the same time. You are treated to a nice little surprise once all are activated. The ending is also amazing because you walk into a bathroom and you can see the exit, yet you know it is too simple and something else is coming. I won't give it away, but chainsaw's are involved and you have to run.
  23. Alright so here are a few details. The price is $13 per person or $20 for front of line pass, DO THE FRONT OF LINE PASS IF THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE! The maze takes a good 15-20 minutes to walk through I would say.If you are claustrophobic, don't go, even the least bit. There is one part, "rebirth" where you walk through a probably 10 foot stretch pitch black, no light, and it is impossible to see and you are being pushed in from all sides, it is intense. This was the best maze I have ever seen. Period. They have actual video clips from the fifth movie that plays on the outside and the details in the maze are truly amazing. Blood splatter everywhere, and the thing that I was shocked to see was one spot where a girl was in an electric chair with the head smasher thing on I believe, IT WAS A REAL GIRL! Everyone in the maze did a GREAT job scaring! There is no lack in detail anywhere. I only saw one of the movies, entirely, and I can tell you if you are a huge saw fan, you will truly fall in love. I want to do it again so I can look at some of the scenes again. The very beginning is great. There is a TV message from jigsaw that tells you how to begin the maze, and it is suspenseful and tricky. I wish I paid more attention to the rooms so I could give a better description, but just wow. 9.5/10
  24. I went to this on Saturday night, and boy it was good! Apparently my sister's friends are the one's who put it on, which I didn't even know and it was an amazing maze. It was long, good scares, and very unpredictable. No cameras are allowed in side, and they make you shut your cell phones off before you go in. Very fun!
  25. Saw this link while on that German site. It features a few stats for the ride. Definitely an interesting looking ride so far. http://www.loisirsattractions.com/?q=en/node/403
