  1. The 29th is going to be an exciting day! So will the entire 2014 season, for that matter
  2. Last year I did 44 without getting off on Thunderhawk at Michigan's Adventure for Coasting For Kids. I got quite the headache from that
  3. That would make me so happy. However, I hope it would be accompanied with the world's tallest and fastest restroom
  4. It was nice meeting you Chad, and I'm looking quite spiffy in my American gear
  5. I emailed the file to you about a week and a half ago... did you receive it?
  6. Great report! It was great meeting you Saturday, and I hope to see you again sometime!
  7. Alrighty kids, another year, another thread packed full of my photos. What better way to start out the thread than with one of the most talked about parks of the year... SILVER DOLLAR CITY I've been wanting to check out this park for the longest time. I am a sucker for parks with such incredible scenery and terrain interaction. Once Outlaw Run was announced, I know for sure that this year was the year to do it. Let's take a closer look into the many attractions at the park. Wildfire My first B&M sit down coaster. I had heard very little about it before riding it, and was disappointed to find that it had a touch of the B&M rattle. Thankfully, it didn't take away from the experience. The view from the first drop was absolutely breathtaking. A very fun and somewhat forceful ride. Thunderation A much larger version of a traditional Arrow Mine Train. The helix was more forceful than I was expecting, and the final drop was a lot larger than I had thought. Not rough, better than Adventure Express Grand Exposition Coaster A run of the mill kids coaster. Yes, I did ride it and yes, I did feel bad about it. Fire In The Hole Smelled like an old dark ride. Fitting, since it is an old dark ride. The drops were fun, and the finale was surprising. I liked the masks the Baldknobbers wore. Powder Keg This ride had some great airtime and positive Gs. The launch was crazy, and seemed even crazier knowing how low the height limit was! The old Buzzsaw Falls portion was a little rough, but not too bad. The ride was overall much more intense than I had expected. Last, but certainly not least... Outlaw Run Absolutely incredible. Amazing first drop, the quick and forceful first inversion, airtime on every hill, then ridiculous wall climb element, and the hangtime on the barrel rolls all flowed together amazingly to create a top notch ride. My new number one coaster, no doubt about it. Let's look at the photos! Here we are! This drop on Powder Keg had more airtime than I thought it would! The back spike looked like it could have been just a new ride under construction from some angles See? I liked how some of the rides had many different signs See? The photo everyone has Pretty sign Yes, I did ride it. I don't look very proud of myself I generally like Screamin Swings, but this one had a cycle that was much too short. I would have ridden this, but I didn't think it was warm enough Another ride I didn't ride.... Some people did though, even in the mornings when it was in the mid 40's! And another ride that was too cold to ride... and yet again, other people did! I did the Marvel Cave, and it was incredible. However, It was much too dark to take pictures of, so just take my word for it It's a National Historic Landmark! The trams out of the cave Here's some random photos of the general beauty the park has Here's Thunderation too! Then we have some Flooded Mine... ... this sexual sign.... ...and Grandfather's Mansion! The second day at the park was foggy early on Well what do we have here.... And we end with this parting shot. Thanks for reading everyone, be sure to leave your comments down below
  8. "Hey lady, check out my floaties!" That killed me Great TR! I look forward to seeing more!
  9. Also doing VF. I'm so excited to do this event again http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/griffineldred/Valleyfair2013
  10. Looks great Sam! I love how unique it is, compared to most B&M loopers!
  11. Look at the cute little Back Track SCR20.BMP Not an exact "precreation", but heavily inspired. Ignore the general ugliness of the surrounding area, I just threw this into an old, existing park from my saved games..... but nonetheless, Enjoy!
  12. Meeting my girlfriend on Batman at SFGAm is a pretty big highlight, I'd say
  13. I got confirmed too! If you see a scene kid with red and black hair, come say hi!
  14. I'm a fan of the view from the top of Diamondback at KI, just because all you see is miles of dense forest. So lovely!
  15. I'd vote Diamondback. The airtime really surprised me! And again, if you're going to count both steel and wood, my favorite wood is Hades.
  16. Providing we can count Tower of Terror as a flat even though it's more of a dark ride, I'll just take the Sunset Blvd. section of Hollywood Studios for my yard so I can have ToT and Rock n' Roller Coaster
  17. SFGAm: The boardwalk between the go karts and V2 is always quiet. It's behind a row of shops, and VERY easy to miss. It can be entered from next to the Claim Jumpers food stand, through the smoking area, or from next to the log ride's switchbacks.
  18. Even with this whole backwards trend, this is still pretty "out there". Cool as hell though!
  19. Looks like a great mix of airtime and twistyness. I can't wait for the next update!
  20. I had to double take when I saw that photo. It looks so real! Can't wait to see more!
  21. I apologize, there are only 5 units. But the trains on my coaster have 6 cars, just as the Thriller did.
