  1. Wicked Cyclone had the same problem for the first 2 or 3 months. It's likely a SF PLC thing.
  2. Dwight would like a word with you... That is all... With all due respect, MF is the third-best ride in the park IMO (#1 is Maverick, and #2 is Raptor). That being said, it's a close third.
  3. What about Twist Coaster Robin? It was only open for a day or so.
  4. #KDproject2017 weird. way too large an area for fireworks. the fact that it's right next to i305 in plain sight means it's probably not a storage facility. and it's way too far away to be a new ride. i guess the optimist in me could say something like "well, it could be a turnaround for a big B&M ... " but i don't want to get my hopes up. Ooh! It's an RMC themed to bulldozers!
  5. Thunderbolt at Kennywood kinda does that, as does Voyage and Boulder Dash.
  6. I tend to consume it off a mirror, through a straw. what do you mean, he said "content"? He clearly said-- oh. Sorry, I consume content through my tablet mostly, using Safari (Chrome has issues on my tablet for some reason.)
  7. ^ To be fair, it is the tallest and fastest dive coaster in the world. New York magazine probably skimmed the press release and slapped the title on there to boost readership. Not a particularly dumb thing, just laziness. As for real stupidity, I ran into this guy In line for Boulder Dash who was whining about how Lake Compounce sucks because it doesn't have Flashback. First off, it does, and second, Flashback is the worst coaster at SFNE (it beats the SLC out by a hair IMO).
  8. I love Kennywood's log flume. The uphill bit is a stroke of genius from Arrow.
  9. Oops. I was planning on maybe making a trip over there, but now I'll be driving past it. Boulder Dash is no Superman, but the ride-ops at least give a shit.
  10. Millennium Force is phenomenal. In addition, I would nominate Boulder Dash. Why? It's not got any airtime, but the fall directly into punishing laterals that never seem to end sets the tone for that ride: Dash is in control. Dash will do what it wants to you. You'd better suck it up and take it like an adult. Also, Larson drop towers.
  11. ^ I wonder if they make that shirt in 4XL? I have a friend who needs to be embarrassed again.

I could go on. Bit I won't. But I could.
  12. Rumor has it that the delays are actually due to Dolly demanding that the "Twin Summits™" be reshaped to be a perfect representation of her own twin summits. #ItllNeverOpen
  13. Don't know if anyone's mentioned this yet, but... Turn the back car of a dive machine around so it faces backwards. This would be an inexpensive way to breathe life into an old dive machine (specifically, Oblivion) and also be pretty badass.
  14. Those pneumatic towers still rely on the cables to somehow connect the cars to the pneumatic system. ARM/Larson towers use large permanent magnets on the cars. So unless something wonky happens to how physics works, they'll always come to a slow crawl before reaching the ground.
  15. Clearly they're going to tear it down and build a 500ft inverted RMC Aquatrax.
  16. I was there on Opening Day. My first Boulder Dash experience. That's SLOW for it!? I must be in for a real treat later in the year!
  17. Quick question: how easy is it to snap the Flying Scooters at Lake Compounce?
  18. I think the problem is the station would be so close to the next station. If they turned the catering section into a new area and then created a new connection path down towards Superman, maybe that would help. Edit- Or maybe remove the catering station and create a new station further down the tracks closer to Superman. Edit 2- This would be more expensive, but maybe they could restore the track layout to its full original length (as much as possible). In an old aerial photo, I saw that the tracks used to take a wider turn past the catering area and went completely around Wild One, eventually returning to its current layout. Original layout: Current layout: You can still see remnants of the old layout: I must say, that is the most obnoxious watermark I have ever seen.
