  1. Velocicoaster - you know where it is. September last year.
  2. @_s3_ thanks for that. I was aware LSMs were less power hungry than LIMs, but not to what degree. I've heard crazy things about LIMs like every ride cycle of Wicked Twister cost $50 in electricity - I'd love to know if that's true - if you extrapolate that into a seasonal cost, it's a hell of a lot for a non-marquee ride. And I've also heard if they ran both sides of Chiller at GAdv at the same time, it could take out the grid lol. I'm sure Cedar Fair would have done a business/cost benefit case for a large piece of capital expenditure like this with operating costs being one component. I'm sceptical it will go all the way up the spike, but I guess we'll see next year. Will be fun if it does, still fun if it doesn't.
  3. Oh wow, Wicked Dragster. How much electricity will this use (like a lot); or will they put Tony Clark on a hamster wheel to keep the generator humming and save on power bills? The drop off the back spike into a launch might be tasty.
  4. More importantly, it looks like a credit. I'm really intrigued by this ride, can't wait for a POV.
  5. Granted...but it's Valleyfair...and all the coasters are closed. I wish that someone would build a coaster with a thousand foot drop.
  6. Granted, a skate-board themed Zamperla Volare. I wish My Chemical Romance would get back together.
  7. A few I forgot: Last Goodbye - Jeff Buckley My Own Worst Enemy - Lit Chop Suey - System Of A Down Since You've Been Gone - Kelly Clarkson Ready To Go - Republica I'm Too Sexy - Right Said Fred Interstate Love Song - Stone Temple Pilots Alive - Pearl Jam Girlfriend Is Better - Talking Heads Anastacia - Slash (with Myles Kennedy) Tangled Up In Blue - Bob Dylan
  8. Granted, they will add duelling Zamperla Volares to celebrate. I wish that all wimpy B & M coasters (most of them) would magically transform into kick a$$ RMC or Intaimin coasters.
  9. ^Granted, but everyone moves there and you can't afford to live there anymore. I wish Europe and the USA were only a 1 hour flight away from where I live.
  10. Granted, but the G-forces render you unconscious for the entire ride. I wish that the majority of coaster enthusiasts were hot, nymphomaniac, hetero females.
  11. More I forgot: Bizarre Love Triangle - New Order Transmission - Joy Division Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day Surf's Up Tonight - Midnight Oil You Just Like Me Cause I'm Good In Bed - Skyhooks Hand To Hold On To - John Cougar Mellencamp Cheap Wine - Cold Chisel I Wish I was Queer, So I Could Get Girls - Bloodhound Gang No Sleep Til Brooklyn - Beastie Boys Love Rears It's Ugly Head - Living Color I Write Sins, Not Tragedies - Panic! At The Disco I'm Like A Lawyer, Always Trying To Get You Off - Fall Out Boy Edge Of Seventeen - Stevie Nicks
  12. One I forgot: Helena - My Chemical Romance
  13. Playing rugby or touch football, and extreme fitness involving running mostly.
  14. Vegas - it always has so much going on in the one place - bands, shows, and even some sport. New York - just love Manhattan. New Orleans - Bourbon Street is another planet at night. San Diego - love the Mission Beach area. Yosemite - absolutely magnificent, especially from the top of Half Dome. Paris - love this town , even the French can't spoil it. London - love the history, even if it's a minefield of disgruntled exes who moved there. Rome - amazing history, even though it's hotter than the surface of the sun in summer.
  15. It takes a hell of a lot of practice to make it look that easy and I love his PRS guitars. He plays in weird tunings too like open D, so he has transpose everything to a completely different note layout on the fret board. Tremonti says in interviews that he plays all the time when he's not on stage, on tour as well. Playing guitar is like being an athlete, you have to work extremely hard to get to his level, and then you've got to practice all the time to keeping playing at that level. I've read about guys who have to warm up for an hour before the show to be able to play their own songs. Other ones I forgot: You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC Cryin' - Aerosmith Department of Youth - Alice Cooper I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Arctic Monkeys Underground - Ben Folds Five Where Is My Mind? - The Pixies Tonight She Comes - The Cars Fall At Your Feet - Crowded House Girls Like That (Don't Go For Guys Like Us) - Custard Get Lucky - Daft Punk Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie Call Me When You're Sober - Evanescence Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac The Fallen - Franz Ferdinand Special - Garbage Mr Brownstone - Guns and Roses Beer - Reel Big Fish New Sensation - INXS Been Caught Stealing - Jane's Addiction I'll stop there for the time being, I really like this thread.
