  1. Damn, have I been lurking for a long time. Congrats TPR and thank you for continually putting out great content all these years!
  2. Looks like Magic Mountain found the second half of YOLOcoaster In all seriousness, looks fun and not half-assed, which is good. Though a part of me also wishes they just went all out on a coaster like this and didn’t attempt the dualing dynamic. I guess we’ll never know, but one things for sure, this should bring some life into an otherwise dead area of the park.
  3. Considering every other coaster that got the floorless upgrade got better, I would be hyped on this if this was my local park.
  4. Great in-depth detail and analysis as always Condor! Your CCI ranking list got me thinking about mine too. CCI wooden coaster rankings 1. Timber Terror 2. Tremors 3. Ghost Rider 4. Raven 5. Boulder Dash 6. Legend 7. Boss Also, sure enough, all 7 are scattered throughout the top of my overall favorites. I wonder where Shivering Timbers would fit in for me?
  5. Really surprised at the lack of chatter on ghost rider. Went to Haunt last week and really wish we could have gone on GR more. It was running so fast and it's still incredibly smooth. I greyed out on the bottom of the first drop. Felt every ounce of airtime. Laterals were strong but not overpowering. I'm really happy with the way the ride has broken in. When I first rode it, I didn't think much of it. This last time, I would actually rank it above the likes of Boulder Dash and Tremors. Go ride now while it's still in amazing shape!
  6. Clearly that's where the aqua goes, right underneath the trax. Dippin dots guy said so.
  7. Seriously, both are definitely worth trips, just on their own merit! I've been wanting to go to Grand Rapids, MI for the beer scene alone, but I have been holding out for 1 more great addition to MiA. I know the year I finally cave in and go, the park will get that premier triple A rated coaster the following year
  8. ^ I'm not sure why they would. They already have a GIB which boomerang will be immediately compared too. Why waste the money and land when they could get something that would generate more excitement in the region? Honestly, though. I think the world will be fine if there is one less vekoma boomerang in the world.
  9. Always thought boomerang's restraints weren't terrible but weren't necessarily great either Digressing from that, if the screamscape rumor is credible, I think we can rule out dive machine. They said it would be something worth visiting for
  10. a B&M dive machine would be a waste of space for another 1 trick pony. I really hope that whatever comes to knotts is more substantial.
  11. While I'm not sure we'll see coasters on that scale, with the Orcas now having to take a back seat to promote the park, I think a more ride oriented approach will be important to the long term strategy and success of the park. I could only hope that means some innovated dark rides and maybe the addition of a few marquee coasters could be on the horizon with SD.
  12. Perhaps if there was a rumor that Jaguar was on the chopping block too, I'd take it more seriously. Otherwise what would they do with the space, add a 3rd Premier sky rocket to California? (I say this, half joking, but realize this very well could be possible)
  13. 1. Raptor 2. Dueling Dragons Fire 3. Flight Deck 4. Alpengeist 5. Dueling Dragons Ice
  14. I just think its odd that Knotts would push for a giga when I think something along the lines od the Intamin jr hyper would be a better fit for the park and provide a better/gp friendly experience. While I personally loved i305, its my understanding the GP feel that its overly intemse and are a bit turned off by it.
  15. Not bagging on the experience, but the capacity on these things are terrible. Sea World San Diego gets a high volume of visitors. I feel like they could have done better. I was at SFDK and we never bothered to ride theirs because the line was well over an hour, compared to the 30 minute line the Joker had.
