  1. During the ceremony, I like how the PR guy was comparing this ride to Dare Devil Dive, instead of to it's more recent cousin Monster. Being that Monster is an infinity coaster as well it would have made a more fair comparison. But, Hangtime's top speed isn't as high as Monster's, and they both have 5 inversions. So I can definitely see why they made the comparison they did. I hope that Hangtime's holding break is an actual stop, like on B&M dive coaster's, as opposed to DDD's which kind of just slows you down a ton. It will be interesting to see what it's like in the end. Great addition to a park that's sorely needed a new, big, coaster. 16 people per train will definitely help with capacity.
  2. Wow! This looks absolutely amazing. I love the Wonder Woman theme, and the WW logo will look so hot wrapped around the train. I cannot believe how thin the track is. It's absolutely amazing. This coaster is really going to change the landscape on how newer rides are designed. I mean think about it, no miscalculations to cause jack-hammering due to misaligned opposing rails. No one's design has ever come close to being similar to the Anton Schwarzkoph's lattice-box-design (ala Mindbender and Shockwave SFOT) UNTIL NOW! But now we have a completely solid, unified rail. This thing will be as smooth as butter, and it will hopefully be difficult for SF to mess it up, unless they just refuse to replace the wheels & axle. I'm not concerned about capacity as much, because I think sitting in a single file will create an intense experience. No track to see beside you. No one beside you to hold your hand. The only coaster I've been on with single file seating is Space Mountain at MK and it's so much fun, and gives you a sense of isolation. Wonder if i should make this a park to visit next year, since i'm going to be getting a SFOG season pass for whatever new hotness they're bringing next year. One park with TWO RMC's! Isn't that like a coaster lover's dream?
  3. After just going to the park in May, I think the resort is right on target for which areas need attention and new attractions. I know it's going to be a while before all of this gets finished, but all of these are amazing capital improvements to the Disney compound! I'm Obviously excited about having our own Tron coaster here in the US, and happy to see that Tomorrowland Speedway looks to be remaining in the park for now. But I love Epcot, and am definitely excited about the improvements to future world. Mission Space is one my favorite rides there and I agree that it needed a better animated movie. With today's CGI, that experience could be improved greatly. Not sure what the guardian's attraction will be . . . but will probably be amazing and the renderings of the old Universe of Energy building look phenomenal. Hopefully Journey Into Imagination will receive some treatment at some point. The Great Movie Ride was probably pretty good in the 90s, but it seemed kinda tired now. I'm happy with any kind of original Mickey & Minnie attraction. Seeing as you can go meet the characters nearby right after you ride that should help liven up this area of the park as well. I've got the Disney fever, and after going to Six Flags this past week now I really want to go back. I suppose patience will be rewarded though. Oh and book me a room at the new Star Wars resort and a table at the Mission: Space Restaurant . . thank you!
  4. I want to watch the video so bad but I am literally going to see it in 8 days, in person (no spoilers)
  5. I love any new paint job on coasters. I think the blue is a nice change, slightly generic and millennium force-like. Overall the park looks amazing well kept in the photographs. Definitely a bucket list park for me.
  6. Wow, it took some seeing Red Force up close to notice the subtle differences in the track design from Intamin's previous launched coasters such as Stealth, Kingda Ka, or TTD. Yes the obvious is the track itself, the same seen on Flying Aces and Skyrush. But what's really interesting & different to me about Red Force is how the pull out from the drop, descends lower than the actual launch track. This is not the case on Intamin's previous iterations of this ride. Also, the twisting transition to the top hat is close to the highest point, allowing for a VERY long straight piece of track on that straight-down drop. It's fun to think that the ride reaches top speed AFTER the drop. I was initially kinda bummed by this attraction considering the Intamin that is already at the original Ferrari World. However, the drop after the launch looks so insane, and judging by your review it seems like endless airtime while going straight down
  7. Still keeping my fingers crossed about a soft opening. Although, now that Disney has announced all of the official media days, etc. for the event; it seems much less likely that I'll be able to see Pandora. We're heading down for our Disney Vacay the 20th of May through the 24th. Literally missing opening by 3 days (this is what I get for letting non-disney freaks do the vacation booking).
  8. Hey at least it had the "old" zamperla trains instead of the new torture machines they showed at IAAPA [attachment=0]thumb_cxuxcdtviaaqykf.jpg[/attachment] I'm super confused about these trains, where are your arms supposed to go? I assume they would fit somewhere between the safety vest, and those poorly designed metal bars?
  9. Oh no! I'm literally going to be at Disney the week before the official opening What are the chances of soft openings?
  10. Looking good! Simple yet classic theme park style. I'm too nervous to build full parks, my poor computer.

  13. SFOG Coaster Ranking from Worst to Best (IMO) 11. Georgia Cyclone - It's time for SOMETHING to happen to this ride, despite the insane ejector it just doesn't seem worth it due to the jack hammering and roughness, excessive trims and the partial retracking of the ride kinda adds insult to injury 10. Superman - one trick pony & kinda boring otherwise, uncomfortable and takes forever to get on usually 9. Joker Funhouse Coaster - Great kiddie coaster with decent forces and an original layout, but it's a kiddie ride 8. GASM - the park should really pay this ride some attention, it's seen better days 7. Dahlonega Mine Train - still a solid ride, and this would have been reversed with GASM probably like 5 years ago 6. Dare Devil Dive - I love lap-bars only, but the ride is not very forceful after the first inversion, the 2nd half of the ride is slow 5. Blue Hawk - up in my books w/ new trains, and i really hope that lots of other parks follow suit 4. Batman: The Ride - super forceful, disorienting, and still relatively smooth, after almost 20 years! 3. Georgia Scorcher - great original layout, still pretty smooth, nice forces, including great negative g's 2. Goliath - airtime monster, superb original layout, packs a lot of punch despite its barely hyper coaster-size, but not ranked number one due to the "square wheel syndrome" the ride is suffering from during the bottom of some drops 1. Mindbender - still glass smooth after all this time and classic Anton Schwarzkopf forcefulness coupled with lap bar only trains, beautiful use of the terrain
  14. Wow, looking through this thread and seeing all of these amazing photos! Northern Europe is becoming quite the destination for some insane thrill rides. The lift hill looks interesting with it's steel supports, and random long arm that extends out?? What's up with that? But the coaster itself could not be in a more beautiful setting, and those trains look stellar!
  15. Hey Everyone, I never venture over to this forum, but I'm in love with Planet Coaster. I even accidentally bought the Coaster Head edition, but still haven't received my T-Shirt and USB Planet Coaster Wristband. But I make frequent creations in this game so i'll have them all in one dedicated thread. So for my first post, is a B&M Wing Rider called Wild Flyer. I really love the new terrain editor. It's unlike any i've seen in simulation gaming before.
  16. How did you manage to build a pretzel loop with the flying coaster in this game?!? I tried and tried, but couldn't get it to go beyond vertical.
  17. That would certainly take a lot of patience for me to wait to ride a new RMC slated to launch in March of 2016, until Fall of 2017 We've already decided that if they're not holding technical rehearsals tomorrow, that we'll go ride the Smokey Mountain Alpine Coaster for the first time. However, my frustration stems not from having a flawless product (as we've all come to expect from Dollywood), but the huge lack of communication from the park in regards to what they're seeing, or how long the delays will last. I don't remember I-305's 1st year being a total Media Blackout. We all knew very well what happened to that ride, when it happened. But we were given an idea of how long it would take to add brake fins to the 1st hill, which served as a nice band-aid for a longer closure that the park could prep it's customers for. I'm still excited to go to Dollywood, and ride some coasters that I haven't been on since fall of 2014. My friend still gets to ride three new rides, so he's plenty excited as well. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the park could be holding technical rehearsals tomorrow since it will no longer be a national holiday.
  18. Sorry, not sure why there was a double post. I was taken to another window where it suggested I review the thread before posting.
  19. The problem is we've been patient now, for the past three months. I suppose i'm feeling miffed since we were teased with a soft opening as well as a Dollywood website alert that STILL says the ride is under a technical ride rehearsal. Now i'm headed to the park tomorrow, and it's back to not even running again. Mark my words, someone will get the axe for deciding to try and "save" some money on the launch system. I seriously considered calling Dollywood and asking for my season pass money back since I've already missed 2 months of Dollywood's season, and we had already cancelled our plans (twice) to go. I get the food is great, and there are other world class attractions, but I've been to Dollywood and done everything there is to offer. This is the closest and (would be) first RMC for me, and is practically the only reason I would get a season pass to Dollywood (considering I live almost 4 hours away). But I know there are others who are trying to plan their trips now that live much farther away. Summer is officially here now that Memorial Day is here, so what are we talking about Dollywood? Two weeks? Two Months? Six Months? Inquiring minds want to know. Maybe wooden coasters were never meant to launch? #itllneveropen

  21. I really liked Black Widow at Kennywood, much more than Delirium and MaXair at Cedar Point. I myself didn't realize that the Zamperla rotated clockwise & counterclockwise. Some of my other local friends who went on Black Widow said that they always got stuck on the lower side of the upswing, as a result of the multi-directional rotation. I think i must have gotten stuck on the higher side of every up swing, because I felt Black Widow gave a much more intense ride than MaXair or Delirium. It will be interesting to see how Mondial's version of the same ride stacks up between the other two. Also, anyone thinking that Cedar Fair may be getting a hefty discount from Mondial for all the issues they've been having with the Windseekers I was sort of surprised to see a different manufacturer than Huss.
  22. I had trouble finding a clip of this scene, but does anyone remember the movie called "Clifford" which starred Martin Short. He played a child character as an adult (yes it was weird). He was obsessed with this park in the movie called Dinosaur World, and at the end of the movie, he got to ride the park's signature coaster.
  23. And from what i've seen it attracts a lot of GP. The first thing I ever hear when I go to the park with distant family is "Does it have a water park?" and the first thing I hear when I say there is one and it comes with park admission is celebration. It also gets to be one of the most crowded places in the park. I had to wait in lines even when it had rained earlier that day on one of my first visits to the water park. Really the last thing I want to hear in this thread is people complaining about the water park expansion. Not only did it have some really fun slides, it was a smart buisness move. When I went to the water park, it didn't seem too crowded to me, but maybe everyone there that day was more into coasters or something At any rate, water parks are definitely not my thing unless they're run by Disney, Herschend, or some really clean foreign park. Surprisingly, HH was not too stinky, compared to other parks that reek of chlorine and urine. As for the two flat rides, I do wish Six Flags had gone with some other choices. Someone needs to bring some permanent Technical Park rides to the states. I am happy they're expanding the flat choices, but it seems for every one they add, they're removing one or more. SFOG has negative numbers for adult flat rides since 1985 -1 - Removal of Shake Rattle 'N Roll -1 - Removal of Looping Starship -1 - Removal of Free Fall -1 - Removal of Flying Dutchman -1 - Removal of Great Gasp -1 - Removal of The Great Six Flags Air Race -1 - Removal of Highland Swings +1 - Addition of Crime Wave +1 - Addition of Sky Screamer +1 - Addition of Acrophobia +1 - Addition of Joker's Chaos (don't wanna put the last word) +1 - Addition of Harly Quinn's Spinsanity Granted we did gain coasters from these removals as well, but you see the point? I'm going for a Carowinds pass next year, and plan to visit that park numerous times, as well as King's Dominion. Now that Alabama Adventure is opening back up, I think I might try to venture there too. I'm really excited about the announcement at Carowinds, but parks fluctuate with their offerings. After this $50 million investment, Carowinds will more than likely pull back the reigns for a few years, and by then Six Flags will have added something great (hopefully).
  24. On the park's map, it says "opening 2015" over T2. I don't imagine it will go anywhere either, but I hope that it does get some new trains, and hopefully some track rehab as well.
