  1. Thundercats! There's no way Juno would have actually known about or remembered that show, but those around my age appreciated the reference. Juno would have worked better if it had took place in the mid 1990's, I'm sure Diablo would agree, but that would have increased the budget. Kids born around 1990 (Allison, am I right?) have no idea about Thundercats.
  2. I saw it opening night. One of the things I noticed is it wasn't very convincing that it picked up right where Casino Royale left off. That seemed a little forced. Having seen the reviews first, it was about what I had expected. I am glad it's doing well, though.
  3. TheRapidsNerd: making randomness awesome since 2007!
  4. If only SFMM was getting that instead of Terminator. I just saw the renderings on the first page, and I must say that thing looks incredible.
  5. It was obviously before my time, however my dad told me how he rode it on its final day of operation in 1968. He described it was very rough and rickety. He's lucky to have such a rare credit, so it's too bad he's not an enthusiast.
  6. I've been on a few log flumes, and have never seen one with a turntable station. Well, it's not exactly a "log" flume, but Jet Stream at Magic Mountain does.
  7. I visited CGA (then PGA) in the summer of 1995, while Tidal Wave was still operating, and I did not ride it. I felt that since I had already been on Montezooma's Revenge, I did not need to ride this one. I do not know what I was thinking. D'oh! *slaps forehead* Always nice to see old photos!
  8. Which is limited to the people already signed up for that particular trip. If the cost of airfare is an issue to the point of keeping someone from signing up for a trip, it would be nice if such a thread was in a public forum.
  9. I've been to Scandinavia, and since every country uses a different currency (only Finland uses the Euro), it's best to just use a credit card or check card for all of your purchases.
  10. I've voted, and I hope you win, but I'm glad this contest is ending soon so that Big Mike can get back to the Road Show updates!
  11. Excellent work as always, Chuck. Thanks for going to Central Florida and having a good time--so we don't have to!
  12. During its last few years, Arrow started using a type of track that resembles Morgan track: Thanks to Joe Schwartz for the picture!
  13. During the 90s the stand-up coaster by B&M was introduced, it was then perfected, and then died.
  14. Does anyone agree that this may end up being the best/most fun coaster at the park?
  15. From what I can tell and from what I have heard, El Toro was a fluke. Somehow it was approved, and somehow it was built. Thankfully it was! However, Magic Mountain nor any other Six Flags park is about to get an Intamin pre-fab woodie like El Toro anytime soon. Obviously if one SF park got one next year while MM got this GCI, that would be reason to be a little upset. Once you accept the fact it's not going to happen not only for MM but not for any other SF park, you can be happy about getting a GCI. This is going to be a great addition to the park. It's probably the best all around coaster with the broadest appeal this entire decade at the "Mountain"!
  16. Yes, I think it would be cool if they ran Ninja backwards, whether it be an entire train or 3 or so cars of one train. As for Viper backwards...yes, Arrow/Vekoma trains and track are pretty much interchangable, and yes, technically Boomerang is a backwards looping coaster, but I think what it comes down to is the fact the train is always "forward" in the station. With Viper, it wouldn't be that way.
  17. I think just one's presence in this thread is a YES vote. Would you really be in this thread if you didn't like Big Mike's excellent reports and photographs?
  18. ^^Wow, was that really necessary? I think a simple "no" would have sufficed. To answer your question, you click on someone, find and click on that. I don't know how effective it is, though. I vote YES for an '09 roadshow. Even if it's a rehash of the same parks. Obviously, new parks would be ideal, and I'm sure Big Mike would make them his main focus. Also, maybe posting more pics of women and showing us his credits of a different kind.
  19. ^Lol, what? Hey everybody, I like Phish too!
  20. I was on the opening crew for GhostRider (you know, when it was really, really good). One day, at Greeter, I asked a woman who was waiting why she wasn't riding with the rest of her family. Her answer was that she's already ridden it at Magic Mountain and hadn't liked it. So there you go. Wow.
