  1. Thats pretty cool. What part of Tatsu exactly is the max drop; does that count the pretzel loop? (Sorry I'm unsure of...) I know it has a huge looking pretzel loop, but unsure of how high it is... I also don't know how high Manta's is, but I'm sure its probably bigger than the S:UF clones? On the other hand Manta sure is going up fast! If I remember correctly, some of the other B&M flyers have had speedy construction like this as well... Well I'm definately excited to ride this next year! It does look like a really fun ride, and I'm excited to see what the final results will look like. -Justin
  2. Shame... we went a couple of days ago and it seemed to be working fine, but if they're planning on eventually removing it I don't know what good that will do the attraction. The Vortex was one of the main icons of that ride, IMO. And it's always really cool to walk through it. -Justin
  3. Hey Robb, I hope this works out for you! 22lbs in 25 days is quite impressive, and hopefully the results can be just as good again this year. How well is Wii Fit working for you? I was hoping to get one sometime, just a matter of finding one and being able to afford it at the same time (maybe Christmas); until now I'll just have to stick to Wii Sports. I've actually been trying to lose a little weight here recently myself... most of my problem is when I'm doing so good I'll crave the food so much that I'll eat it, then keep eating it, so I guess I just need to eat in moderation more. I also have a problem with going out late with friends and eating. Good luck with the rest of your routines!
  4. I just saw Hotel Rwanda for the first time the other night. Great movie, kind of reminds me of Schindler's List in some ways. 8/10 OT: A little...: Is anyone going to see Quantum of Solace on Friday? I'm excited about it, I really enjoyed Casino Royale and want to see this despite it's bad reviews. -Justin
  5. Wow its been awhile... but hey, the park closes on my birthday!!! lol. I am actually surprised this hasn't happened a long time ago. Everyday I drive by theres barely even 20 cars in the parking lot... I don't really know how well a reinvention of the park is going to take for it to actually succeed. It might have potential if its done right, but there is A lot (A LOT) of work that needs to be done for anything spectacular to happen there. And while I would hate to see it close down permanently, I just don't know if it's going to be possible for this to be done well enough for people to keep coming back, instead of a "one time we've seen it, lets go" kind of things. -Justin
  6. Hey Joe! Thank you for sharing your pictures with everyone! They are always so beautifully captured and have great quality to them. You're Millennium Force photos always turn out amazing, I try every time to catch a photo likewise, but am always un successful! -Justin
  7. .... Volcano happens to be the best color scheme as well as ride experience, case closed. As for bad paint jobs, I would say probably any of them at Cypress Gardens, especially this one which doesn't have a paint scheme at all... http://rcdb.com/ig2772.htm?picture=3 -Justin
  8. Congratulations Robb! That takes alot of self determination to be able to do what you have accomplished already! I wish I could do that as well, but sometimes I feel like I'm too lazy! -Justin
  9. Those concepts are amazing! Thanks for sharing them with us!! -Justin
  10. Thanks for sharing your TR with us Erik! I took a trip to the Disney Parks and Universal last week and it was alot of fun! It was really uncrowded and it was good to be back. -Justin
  11. Hey Reed & Stacey! I haven't heard from you guys in a long time, how are you doing? I wonder how we managed to miss seeing you at the tradeshow. Went on Tuesday, and Wednesday, did you do the Dinner in the sky? I agree, it seemed like a pretty cool concept, don't know how well it would work though. -Justin
  12. Glad to see everyone is having a great time! I like Elissa and Kidtums Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts. haha. I never realized that you got to choose your own music on Hollywood Dream, thats pretty neat. -Justin
  13. Wow! That ride looks AWESOME! I never knew it didn't come into contact with water though. I guess since I never heard anything about this ride, but only saw brief pics, I thought it might have been like Journey to Atlantis, but with a better coaster design. Anyways, I can see the similarities... neat! -Justin
  14. I love CP, hopefully I'll be able to get back there this year for Halloweekends and ride Maverick! It looks like you guys had a blast! Anytime you go to CP with a group of great people and friends, is when your bound to have an amazing trip, thats how all my experiences have been. Thanks for sharing!! -Justin
  15. That video cracked me up, I watched it like 3times... man she's insane though! Thanks for sharing! -Justin
  16. Amazing photos! Thanks for sharing! That was really cool to see some great shots of Busch Gardens, its truly an amazing park as well as gorgeous; and you've seemed to capture the very images of the park very well. You really can notice the skyline of the park from the cable cars, I didn't know if Griffon would be of any affect to it at first, but the more I see pics, it really fits in very well. Thanks for sharing! -Justin
  17. Looks like awesome fun! Thanks for keeping us updated with fun sounding TRs. I still haven't been to Holiday World yet, looks like I need to put it on my to-do list. -Justin
  18. Sick... Freaking SICK. Theres no way I'm missing out on this year's HHN, I'm gonna get my ticket ASAP! Thanks for the update!! -Justin
  19. Hard choice... lately I've been riding Ice more and its been alot more intense than I remember, but I still think I like Fire better, but for different reasons. Its not the airtime hill that gets my vote, but the immelmans, and g-forces. First immelman is so smooth, then the next one is a different subject... Fire gets my vote. -Justin
  20. Wow... sorry to get off subject here, but I didn't realize that Danny Elfman was in Oingo Boingo before his independant work, maybe I'll have to check out some of their older stuff. I think Danny Elfman does more of soundtracks now? But they're all amazing compositions. Thanks for sharing pics, and your story, Robb. That was definately a different TR. -Justin
  21. Looks like everyone is continuing to have a great time! That plane ride looks crazy, somehow it looks like a goosebump factor like the chairswings on a tower ride (I forgot what they're called, Starflyers?). -Justin
  22. Most of my friends can tolerate me pretty well. Though I suppose I can bring up a chat about anything, so I'm not totally obsessing about theme parks or coasters ALL the time; most of the time when I do, they dont mind. Although, couple of my friends have even got the hobby rubbed off on them, and share somewhat of an interest though they're not as much into it as I am. My parents and most of my family knows about my theme park/coaster interest and think its cool. Grandparents have taken me on trips, and the family thinks its a neat hobby so they're not bothered by that. My dad is an extreme theme park/coaster enthusiast as well; so we often do alot of traveling to parks and stuff like that. Kind of cool to have a father that has a same interest as you. Most kids dads share a baseball hobby or something but we always do the theme parks and coasters. -Justin
  23. I can, afterall this IS Disney; The company that put "SEX" in the sky on Lion King, and a giant man-part-shaped castle in Little Mermaid, then the naked lady poster in Rescuers Nothing surprises me with these disney gimmicks, and they're done intentionally. -Justin "You one eyed critter!" - Lilo & Stitch (and Monsters Inc.)
  24. Wow Jahan, Great TR! Thanks for sharing! There was alot of reading, and the captions of the photos were pretty funny (Great photos BTW). That really sucks how they're blocking California's Screamin' by putting that building in front of the loop... I mean its no big deal, but that kindof defeats the purpose of seeing the mickey on the loop, no? Disneyland appears to be very crowded, its like that over here too, the other day I couldn't even walk around Magic Kingdom without having to bump into people every 2-3steps. So I think I'll wait till fall to go back and hope that its not as jammed as it is in the summer... The Submarine ride looks okay I guess. I haven't been on one of those since WDW's version of 20,000 leagues, but I was like 5 when I last rode it and loved the ride. If its like Epcot's version of Finding Nemo like everyone says it is, I definately wouldn't get hyped over it. Epcot's version is okay, but its like riding a storybook. And I thought it would have more animatronics in it than it did, and not just projections. Thanks for the TR! -Justin
  25. I don't know if this has been posted or not but Screamscape has done some quick "research" on a photo(s)... (Dont know if they were released ones) and found some matching points to some of the maps that were posted in other replies, have a look: http://www.screamscape.com/html/ioa_-_project_strong_arm_2.htm Coming from Jurassic Park to the Harry Potter entrance. http://www.screamscape.com/html/ioa_-_project_strong_arm_0.htm Overall view map? or Top... Aerial View http://www.screamscape.com/html/ioa_-_project_strong_arm_1.htm One last aerial shot. Again, sorry if this has been posted, its not groundbreaking news or anything, kindof a neat find from comparisons.
