  1. Revere Beach Cyclone(Church) or Coney Island Bobs/Tornado(Church). Church was a mastermind, its such a shame so few of his coasters survived to the present date.
  2. My copy of NL was installed on my laptop HDD. The laptop's screen broke, so I put the laptop HDD in my desktop. Now, when I try and run NL, I get the error about how I don't have the full version, and I need to enter a code. How do I use NL now? I bought this with my money, I want to be able to use it.
  3. I'm disappointed I never got the credit, but now that its gone, there is room for something better to take its place!
  4. A campground at Lake Compounce would be amazing! As previously stated, the only campground in the area I've found is this creepy place on this back road with no signs around it. All over the place are bible verses on sign poles, and they have a giant wooden cross. Which functions as a swing, except, all of the swing seats? They drag on the ground. The whole place just makes no sense. I haven't been since 2009, so I don't know if the place is still like that.
  5. MadJennyMorgan of the CanobieFan forums posted this video of it testing.
  6. Does anyone know the last time it was retracked? I wonder how many times it has been retracked in it's history. I seriously hope they keep the original cars, or at least make new ones using the exact same design.
  7. Oh, and of course, Leap the Dips is a one of a kind now. Until a few years ago, it had a partner, Runaway Coaster.. Too bad it was torn apart.. After surviving for so long, starting out as a German fair coaster, then rotting in a field, then refurbished by an English park and torn to bits shortly after..
  8. Wasn't the issue with Flashback that SFMM maintained it poorly, and the track got misshapen? I wonder if it was any good in its first few years.
  9. Why do I have the feeling one of them is going to have to detonate it manually and suicide...
  10. Runaway Mine Train at M&D's was an obscure spinning coaster with a spiral lift hill made by Barbisan, called Jamming, which was later converted into a unique, but more conventional, mine train coaster with a straight lift hill. Also, Cyber Space at Grove Land and Galaxia at Wiener Prater are pretty odd, also made by Barbisan. Fish shaped, roofed cars, sort of like a Chance Toboggan, and a semi-enclosed track layout, kind of like Pirate's Cove or whatever that thing is in New Jersey by Wisdom Rides. Speaking of that, that Wisdom roller coaster Pirates Cove or whatever it was is a one of a kind, I think. Kind of pointless from TPR's POV, as well.
  11. Corkscrew at Canobie Lake Park, age 8. I got a headache. I quickly learned the "force your head to the left" trick.
  12. This is actually kind of okay so far. Entertaining! I got some of my friends to watch the livestream.
  13. This was originally built for a Japanese park, and it had a Swiss Alps theme. Yes, you are correct. That is why the supports are so large.
  14. I really don't understand the point of the extra seatbelts on coasters with no airtime (Loopers, Mine Trains). Even if the lap bar(on mine trains) wasn't there, you wouldn't fall out, and if for some bizzare 1 in several trillion accident, the OTSRs popped up, I doubt you would exactly fall out of the seat. As for the very high height restrictions, I really hope that they are lowered a few inches at least. Families can really get cheated out of a fun visit if their kids can barely ride anything.(Although, it was their fault for not looking into what rides their kids could ride on the park's website)
  15. Vekoma's Junior 355 m model is 1099 feet long. Examples are is Flight of the Hippogriff at Universal Orlando, and Woodstock Express at Cedar Point. This is just a shot in the dark, though. They didn't give much info.. EDIT: I sort of overlooked the speed. The ride they described goes 50 km/h, while the Vekoma Junior 355m only goes 45 km/h... Whoops.
  16. Around 925 USD Skyward Sword (Wii) Space Invaders Extreme 2 (DS) Some assorted candy and food items I feel spoiled! I asked for Twilight Princess, but my Dad must have picked out the first Zelda game he saw... Lucky me! And, I'm building a computer with the money. So excited to get started! I also got Europa Univeralis III from my friend Daniel on Steam
  17. As for the "wood" school, while it does make sense, some GCI rides are made from pine as well. For example, I remember seeing a special on Dollywood and the opening of Thunderhead. I remember Dolly Parton saying something about it being made of Southern Yellow Pine. Although I do not know of how well Thunderhead has stood up, if this fits in the "Good GCI" category, it might throw the whole wood hypothesis for a loop. Although, it may also have to do with Dollywood's great maintenance. I'm more of the "PTC needs to stick to 6 bench cars, damnit." school.
