  1. I like the way the first drop wraps around the pond, and the way the track converges where the train approaches WWC. Also, The lack of bents on the lift portion of the blueprint would make since because with my positioning the lift goes right over the pond... So if that happens we may see a lift on this like what RMC did with Goliath at SFGA.
  2. Spent yesterday at the park and from the clearing I saw from the train this looks closer to how it will run. But needs rotated so the straight section is between the train tracks and WWC. Almost all of the trees between the WWC's station and the train tracks are gone as well as all of the trees between WWC's lake/pond and the train tracks... Seems as if the coaster will run right between the 2 attractions. EDIT: Something like this... forgive the horrible photoshop job, I rushed it... But you can see how it would wrap around the storage shed for the trains and also if you look at the bents that are in the blueprints it looks like there could be an opening in them where the tracks pass just south of the train storage shed that seem to line up about right.
  3. Thanks for the info guys. Its really a shame that people can't just be grateful for things and always ruin them. Hopefully some day we will get the chance to experience TPR trips again.
  4. What has happened to the TPR tours and cruises? It seems like I dont see anything about them happening anymore. (If this has been addressed please feel free to remove)
  5. The old Myrtle Beach Pavillion had a Caterpillar ride when the park closed in 2005 (or was it 2006?). I wonder what ever happened to that one...
  6. Did anyone else notice in the article that they are also looking for a trabant while in Japan? Wouldn't that be great at Cedar Point on the WT midway where the 3pt Challenge sits as a throwback...
  7. On opening day I saw a women refilling a yellow Six Flags cup at KI... and the employees didn't even seem to notice/care.
  8. There are also still a few footers from the old King Cobra that survived the Banshee construction I believe.
  9. Hi! I'm glad that you decided to join after riding with Jarred and I (Brandon) on Friday. It was great meeting you two as well as all of the TPR members we got to meet. -Brandon
  10. Its actually already been built in Myrtle Beach... http://www.myrtlebeachonline.com/2014/04/04/4142887/new-rides-stores-coming-to-broadway.html
  11. Cant wait for media day. It falls right on my birthday so that will be a perfect way to spend it!
  12. Thats exciting... This means that someone can create a model of the purposed Arrow coaster that was for the Stratosphere.
  13. Here you go... Just tossed it together in Photoshop. My opinion... If these are the real blueprints, this coaster may be large, but nowhere near the size of SOB. I'm fairly sure I have everything scaled right as well... If you look the service road running through the blueprint, it lines up with the map, as does Delirium, and Flight Deck.

  14. HAHA Ted Nugent's Kill 'N Grill (American Dad reference)
  15. Just left Dinosaurs Alive and Milli is valied on the island with water dummies on the train. Ill upload a photo later. UPDATE: Maverick is valied in the horshoe roll. They are pulling the train through the inversion right now.
  16. I have #143/250 and I must say... although over priced, it looks AMAZING on my office wall
  17. My first was the Son Of Beast at Kings Island... I think it was 2006. I know it was about a month before the big accident that caused the removal of the loop.
  18. As of Thursday night they both were down... Invertigo was running all day until about 6 but then it went down...
  19. Hello everyone, Its been a few years since I went to KI and am about to head up that way on Friday... Just a few questions. 1. How have the crowds been this season? My riding partner can't do spinning rides so we will be marathoning coasters all day... has it been busy enough to justify Fast Lane? 2. I know that in the past if you brought a souvenir cup from a past season, you could still get the cheap refills... Is this still the case? Many thanks in advance, Brandon
  20. Someone may have said this already... but I didnt find it in the first 5+ pages so here it goes... Does this make anyone think of the absurdly long thread on here where the person watermarked/copyrighted EVERY photo they uploaded?
  21. Did anyone else notice the sign at the Alpine slide that said "Maximum Capacity: 2 heartbeats per chair"
  22. That's great to know, too. I've sent out e-mails to several parks who had rides with the Spillway element in it (BGT, for example) for any older pics to share with the audience- I'm hoping they get back to me soon enough. R.D. I have images of the Family Kingdom Spillway Element. They aren't of the best quality as they were taken before I took up photography. You enter from the right of this image... The exit of the element... The run-out after the element
  23. ^ All of the Windseekers will with the exception of Knotts... because of the location and color of their tower they are just going to light it up with white flood lights if I remember correctly.
