  1. It's obvious that they'll probably recycle a name from another park with Talon or Night Hawk being tops on the list,we have to remember that NOT everyone in CP's marketing audience is an enthusiast let alone is aware of how many parks CF operates or the number of recycled ride names they have used in the past.
  2. Agreed, but it doesn't pull as much as Backlot or i305... The G's on backlot aren't as bad as on intimidator's first turn.
  3. Of course none of us know when on the ride the person became "unresponsive" but the final helix does pull quite a lot of G's & almost makes me want to throw up afterwards as of lately.
  4. I wouldn't be suprised if he/she lost consciousness in the helix t the end as it's got some strong forces that have really pushed me to the limit lately...I know that when I'm on the ride the forces are quite substantial & I can definitely feel the blood drain into my feet.
  5. It's very confusing because none of the reports I've read so far give any indication as to wether or not he actually completed a ride on the coaster or not...he could've just sat down in the train & passed out before it was even dispatched especially if it was hot during the day.
  6. I swear,why even bother having fast lane on wave swinger when the line is never long enough to warrant it?
  7. That sucks... I hope they get it back up by then! I for one would like to know just what exactly happened.
  8. Ohh man does that suck,I hope it's nothing serious that could put the ride out of commission tomorrow. If there was an accident, it wouldn't be open till either Sunday or Monday. Went to the park saturday & Dominator was indeed closed all day....when talking to a staff member inquiring about how to get to the "item storage facility" in waterworks I inquired about it mentioning what I'd read here last night & was told that,indeed an incident occurred friday evening & that the ride would be shut down but of course no further details were given. When leaving the park at around 8:30 saturday evening I said hi to one of the security staff & a higher up near the gate & again inquired about the situation & was told that they hope to re-open the ride by monday at the earliest....still no word from either of them on just what happened frieday evening as well.Has anyone else heard any new information lately?

  10. I'm going on Monday when the ratio is lower... less likely to rain, and hopefully less crowds. Speaking of which, how long are the lines for i305 and Shockwave on Mondays? Not sure as I always end up going on saturday's.
  11. THIS! You've got a fantastic TR going here! I'm loving all of the reviews and the photos. I agree with a lot of your opinions, for the rides that I've ridden, anyway. Looking forward to the rest! Why no ride on Grizz at KD Andrew? The ride is kinda hidden but is easily located near the DA attraction & go-karts.
  12. Darn it,I missed that episode,is there gonna be another one this coming saturday?I'll be at KD tomorrow so I'd have to DVR it of course.
  13. Anaconda is also staying as that question was asked by a number of people on KD's facebook page as well. Anyone going to the park tomorrow? I hear that the forecast calls for a 40% chance of showers/t-storms throughout the day,if anything it may be a good day to go since the forecast might keep the crowds down.
  14. Just a few more.... "Dump-Hawk" ...or... "Hawk-Dump" ...or... "Flight-Dump-Hawk-Deck" Or the ever popular "chicken hawk"....then again since when has B&M ever produced a kiddie coaster? ROFLMAO!!
  15. We all know that when it comes to asking the parks on their facebook pages about new rides that may be coming in the next season or two that of course they're not gonna respond as they want to keep those things secret but asking about existing rides is slightly different as there's nothing to hide by saying """"yes it's being removed or no it's staying"....besides,now that the question has been asked & the ball is rolling it may lead people to post never ending questions on their FB page concerning the ride's fate...questions that they'll grow tired of answering & will most likely address in a separate post/status update at a later time. Wildcat got removed at CP with little to no warning as maintenance/operations discovered problems that prohibitted the safe operation of the ride so we can't use that as an example,besides it was easy for CP to remove it since it was designed to be portable & taken apart within a matter of hours/days.Had it been one of the bigger/permanently built coasters(Mantis/Iron dragon) then CP would've just let it go SBNO for the season while determining what to do with it.
  16. It wouldn't suprise me that DA is what is comng in 2013 to carowinds seeing as how this attraction seems to be doing well for all of the other parks that've added it so far. The 2014 season should be a good one coasterwise for Carowinds as well as KD since both parks got their last coasters the same year back in 2010 & were identically themed,of course the intimidator/nascar theme made sense for both parks as there are nascar race tracks surrounding their respective target markets.
  17. Not sure wether they used just parts or entire trains but some of KC's hardware is now on shockwave.It wouldn't be too hard to rehab the KC trains,repaint them & test them on the ride to put them in operation as shockwaves original trains are now 26 years old. I used to be a ride-op for Shockwave for almost three years. Yes we have one full train from King Cobra, as does CW. We also have most of the parts reproduced/refurbished by Premier Rides. And the Shockwave trains though being 26 are younger than the one stored outside from King Cobra. I feel if anything was to be removed it would be Anaconda, mostly because it has gotten horrible over the years. I would hope they would refurbish it, but I don't see that happening. Someone asked KD via facebook about the rumors they heard about anaconda's removal & much like with shockwave has said that anaconda is staying for the forseeable future as well.

  19. KD has confirmed that shockwave will NOT be removed anytime soon via their facebook page.
  20. ^Every time I'm anywhere near hurler(on saturdays no less) I hardly see anyone queing up for it so I just don't see why they bother keeping it but I guess,much like with SOB it'll cost more to remove it than to keep it running.
  21. The last thing KD needs is another launcher & they don't need another coaster in the congo area,unless of course Anaconda were to be removed in favor of something new like a B&M wingrider or flyer. It would be interesting to see planet snoopy be upgraded/expanded to include a new ride or two for families to enjoy since flying ace(aka windseeker JR.) is the only ride back there.That would also follow in line with the park's usual pattern of thrill rides one year,family oriented rides/attractions the following year which could lead to something new for the thrill seekers/coaster lovers come 2014. Read the last sentence of my post that you quoted. Yes I'm aware that it's not gonna happen but I'm just saying that,in the future I'd hope KD doesn't put it's next coaster(whenever that comes) in congo.
  22. My guess is something ending in "hawk".The whole "where'd you get the photo" game reminds me of the whole "it's a giga" no "it's a vertical lift" debate in the KD thread when I305's lift base showed up & even with the box o' bolts pic nobody believed it till the announcement was finally made LOL!!!
