  1. Worst park? Rainbow Valley in Prince Edward Island, it was okay as a kid, but now that I look back at it. It was more of a playground with a kiddie coaster and water slides.
  2. Not the biggest fan of water slides in general, but this look's like something I might want to ride, with potentially high capacity. I hate lines.
  3. ^ That's great! Anyone who's ever ridden Flight Deck at CW knows just how painful SLCs can be. Darien Lake's Mind Eraser? Erm, I'm avoiding that one.
  4. I hope it's nicely refurbished, you know, having the wheels touch the track at all times would be nice. Those restraints look slightly less painful that Flight Deck's at least.
  5. This is starting to look really good, I'm not the biggest fan of Mack, but hey, this may just change my mind! - Basil "Now I want to get down to Europa" Weatherby
  6. ^ X2 got new trains, to my knowlage, Medusa's just getting their trains refurbished, that's a whole other ballpark. ^^ 3 percent, would actually translate to a good bit in the amusement park industry. If say 100000 were to visit the park in a month, that's 3000 people.
  7. ^ Six Flags is losing attendance at their parks. They already are building a new ride at SFMM, so they need other ways to get attendance up without going bankrupt. it doesn't matter to them if it's cheesy or not, it just matters that they make money.

    ACE

    How to be an ACEr. 1. Gain at least 95 pounds. 2. Pay a ridiculous amount of money. 3. Don't talk to ANYONE. 4. Browse the interwebs looking for POVs of Crystal Beach Cyclone. And don't forget, eat all park food, or food that can be found and tastes like the food at the park. - Basil
  9. Oh jeez, last time I visited CW, a mother was asking if she could hang onto her bratty kids leash on Swings of the Century. Some people just have no common sense.
  10. Park photographers who instantly pounce on you. The price of those photographs. Employees that show disrespect to me, just because I'm a teenager. When the GP pretend to be know-it-alls in the que, when half of it is a load. (ie: "Behemoth actually goes 135 KM/h, but they have to slow it down cause that's too fast.") Oh jeez, the general public. People who smoke in non-designated areas (especially lines!) People who cut past you in line 'because they have a friend saving them a spot." I swear, next time someone says this, I'm going to HAVE to tell them off. I could go all day.
  11. ^ Well, there is wood piled up at SFMM, I don't think they can un-buy a woodie. Aren't there contracts the parks and designers have to sign?
  12. I think this second one will be my official entry. The first one is more of an actual fright fest attraction, Peter Gabriel as Sledge Hammer.
  13. Someones already used Maverick, meh. Might as well. Maverick On Maverick!
  14. ^ Not really, pocket protector nerds are stereotyped as skinny. ACErs, erm..
  15. ^ Yeah, you can feel the change in angle for about 3-5 seconds on Behemoth, you don't even need your eyes open.
  16. There are new vest restraints on the newer SLCs, they don't have those stupid ear flaps. They are also supposed to be smoother than the earlier trains because all the wheels touch the track. Huzzah! I hope Wonderland gets them next year for Flight Deck. - Basil
  17. ^^^ I agree, that would create a much better experience than.. a straight section of track. It would also create a unique visual impact. Email B&M, stat!
  18. ^Well Behemoth is Yellow and Orange.. and blue. But I guess its because its easy. It works doesn't it?
  19. I'm looking forward to all the new stuff to come! Shane, I may not be old enough the remember any of this, but heck do I appreciate it! Amusement history is such an interesting topic to me. Thank you very much for the attic! - Ryan "Basil" Weatherby
  20. This thing is looking more and more awesome by the day! Can't wait to get to KI. - Basil
  21. ^ I guess its just more of a luck thing, if you happen to be on the highway and notice 4 vehicles in front of you a truck with Blue track strapped to it, and you have your trusty camera, your in luck!
