  1. Thanks for the great update, Chad. I am loving the presence of this coaster. Those barrel rolls look awesome!
  2. I was just thinking that. I don't keep up with this thread continuously, but when I check back, I'm always confused. It's always different talk about a different type of ride. But with them keeping the splashdown pool and bridge, I am exited to see what they do with it though.
  3. I took this a couple of days ago. It's just me, doing what I love to do. Flying at 5,500ft, I feel pretty at home.
  4. I'm going to agree. If nothing else, this is turning out to be a sexy looking coaster. I'm impressed with this project so far. They didn't release a full POV yet, have they?
  5. That's an awesome element! Looks like Silver Dollar City is gonna have a winner on it's hands!
  6. Wow, that looks amazing! Kudos to you! It seems that every time I started a K'nex project, I never had the motivation to finish. Hard work paid off for you, you have a GREAT looking model! Congrats!
  7. I was out in LA last week, I wish I would have had the opportunity to ride it. Whether is 400ft or 385ft, that's still more than enough height to fall!
  8. I think you should, Chad. It kinda makes me wish I was off work on Sunday. Either way, that element, whatever we decide to call it, looks amazing. I'm really excited to see the rest of the layout.
  9. Reading all these post about how everyone's day went, is awesome. I'm glad that everyone had a good time! The event at WoF was nothing short of AMAZING. We started the day on Prowler. I myself got 21 rides in. I had to take a short break to grab some a beverages that were given to us complimentary by the park. The Prowler crew was great. They were very enthusiastic about the event, and over all presence in the park. It was very welcoming and much appreciated. After lunch, we did Mamba, which I got 16 rides on. That crew, as Chad said, was awesome, too. They were VERY enthusiastic about the event. The girl at the dispatch control was great with pumping up the station guest, as well as informing them on what we were doing. It seemed we were greeted by the park guest with an applause every time we rode back in to the station. Next was Patriot, and that was great! I was able to get about 26 rides on that one. Big thanks to World's of Fun! They were great. They had someone with us at all times, and they were very pleasant about it. Thanks to Larry, and Jessica who I interacted with the most. I, as well as my friends, had a great time. Since it was my first visit to the park, I was VERY pleased. I loved the atmosphere, and employees that always seemed to happy to be there. Great job, World's of Fun! It was also great meeting fellow TPR members from my area. During Patriot, I had a nice conversation with a few members through-out the ride. I really enjoyed myself. Also, a big thanks to Cedar Fair for putting this together, Robb and Elissa, as well ALL the members at TPR who helped us raise money. Great job, guys! I'm proud to be part of such a community that gives back!
  10. ^^ I was thinking the same thing. I would like to ride it before it gets trimmed. Sky Rush looks like a great ride! I'm hoping that if I get to go to East Coast Bash, I will be able to hit up Hershey park the Friday before!
  11. Over $18,500 already? Wow, that's awesome. I have enlisted a few of my friends who wanted to help and raise more money!. They are promoting themselves via social networking, around their work place, etc... If you feel like donating to them, or anyone else on the Worlds of Fun team, go right ahead! I believe there is a few participants on there that haven't met that $75 minimum. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far. Keep it up!
  12. Just $5 away from hitting $70. I've been posting it on my Facebook like wild fire!
  13. I'm searching every possible way to attend both! Planning goes in to effect...NOW!
  14. He's a friend of mine. He just signed up yesterday! Thanks for the donation to get him started! Here's his link if anyone else is feeling generous! www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/jason-black/WorldsofFun2
  15. ^^ Great idea, Robb. I made a $5 donation to Ray (toxicphreke) to get him started!
  16. 62ft long, with a 44ft wingspan, soaring through the air with precision, and deadly force. It's ready to strike at ANY given second! A Raptor is able to fly through the air at over Mach 2! The fire power is intimidating! Air to air, air to ground, and equipped with guns, the F-22 Raptor is THE deffinition of "Awesome and deadly"!!
  17. It's finally time that I introduced myself around here. The name is Alfred. I'm a 25 year old pilot in training from Southern California. I currently reside in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as I am finishing up my flight ratings! I've been a LONG time lurker here on TPR. I started to attended my fair share of events when I discovered a good friend was a fellow coaster geek, WCB, Texas Giant Bash..etc. They have ALL been great! I really don't know why I don't post more often, seeing as how I visit the site daily, but I hope that will change! I've been a fan of coasters for a over a decade now. It started to a trip to SFMM when Goliath was under construction. I was so intrigued. I've made several friends through this site, and others, and I am hoping to make more! I'm part of the team that will be doing C4K at World's of Fun! I can't even began to explain how excited I am, as I have never been there. I usually try to do a volunteer event for local charities every year. With all the things going on, I didn't think I was going to get a chance to do it. I am thankful to be part of such an amazing community that is getting out there and doing it's part. Though I don't know anyone that would benefit from this personally, I can't even imagine what this means from the kids who do benefit from Give Kids The World, not to mention their families. I have began to ask my friends and family for donations and they seemed to be on board. Lets get all the donations we can for these kids! I have also invited a friend to join me, I will post his link as soon as he signs up, as he is not a member of TPR (yet) Great job to EVERYONE who has signed up, and thanks for EVERYONE who has donated! Because everyone loves an old coaster picture. TPR's favorite Mexican and myself at SFDK
  18. I'm HONORED to be part of the Worlds of Fun Team! The response is AMAZING! Great job! I'm proud to be part of such a great community doing something for a good cause. I'll post an introduction about myself later tonight. KEEP DONATING!
  19. I just signed up! Charity and roller coasters, two of my favorite things! https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/alfredquiroz/WorldsofFun
  20. Chadster, I am thinking about doing the World's of Fun. Kansas City is only about 4 hours from where I am, so I'm trying to convince a friend to ride up there with me.

  22. I agree, that angle makes this beast look huge. Not that there is anything small about a 300ft coaster.
  23. For some reason, I also really enjoyed this ride. I am going to be sad to see it go. I hope I can get out to SFMM to ride it one last time. If not, I'll just have to make a trip out to SFNE.
  24. I was waiting on some of my friends confirmations on wanting to go. Now that I have it, I have to book a hotel and buy our tickets. I'm excited. This is going to be awesome!
  25. The only thing that came to mind, was Xcelerator. But I guess compared to other versions of the "rocket coaster", Intamin did take it slowly. =p I'm excited to see what they do with these concepts though. The theming on this one is incredible!
