  1. I agree with Ted, both are really horrible rides. TAER IT DOWN.
  2. Or you could go to the actual BGW site here www.buschgardens.com/bgw/ftp_newfor2007.aspx
  3. I'm planning a visit next Wednesday, and assuming I have internet access at our condo can post them the next day, if not then the earliest will be Saturday or Sunday. -J (Who says Watch This Space..)
  4. Theres nothing wrong with having high expectations, its that the park you are having high expectations for, will likely never get large project that would meet your expectations. Hopefully the opening of HRP in 2 years will create some friendly competition. -J (Fully content with Top Gun and the Flyers..)
  5. Yeah but that was still when I was a Whip noob.. plz forgive me.
  6. Oh man, Playlands Whip is AMAZING.. I thought Knoebels was the best a Whip could get.. man I was so wrong when Playlands cranked up to at least double the speed of Knoebels. Rye is an amazing park, that certainly doesn't get enough credit in enthusiast circles.
  7. Did someone say Camden Mack Hyper? Ahh man good times.. Borg Island construction started probably in tiny bits and pieces in May or June, with full scale construction going on in July and August.. this gallery documents the majority of Borg construction from around April to October.. and also Carowinds Connectionhad a nice long construction diary on it.. when it was up.. *cough*.. Anyway, here's something no one thought of yet (I think).. What if all the 'construction' is for a path that goes under Thunder Road, for an attraction in the Parking lot behind it.. has anyone inspected the parking lot for clues? -J (Not expecting anything at this point.. but I'm juss sayin..)
  8. What you didn't ride it? When in Rome... (or South Carolina...)
  9. AHAHAHA... Great TR Wes, good to see that coaster hasn't moved an inch in 2 years.. I remember me and Jonathan asking various employees what the status of the coaster was, and the only answer we ever got was "We don't run that anymore" which more or less translates to "We don't have the funding and/or intelligence to fix it." 2004: 2006: I wouldn't call it the worst park in the world, but it does have a twisted sort of charm there, it was nice just walking around looking at all the crazy unusual stuff. Hope I can pay another visit this year on the way to Myrtle.
  10. Yeah hi. The name Carowinds was formed from the Winds that flow across the Carolinas, as the park straddles both North and South Carolina. I think its a rather inventive name as it doesn't have the words "King", "Great", "World", "Land", "America", "Adventure", "Island", or "Fun" which of at least one you will find in probably about 50% of all amusement names in America. -J (The more you know...)
  11. ^That really sucks, sorry to hear that. Grizzly had some extensive trackwork done last year and has been running amazing ever since. Might be worth another visit.. Hurler had the same treatment this year, and is also running well. Not quite as good as the one at Carowinds, but a lot better than it has in the past. Rebel Yell just flat out sucks, taer it down plz.
  12. Uhh Grizzly?.. its not like Thunderhead or even Cornball Express good, but its probably best in the chain. And at night its everything the Beast SHOULD be, but of course isn't since the Beast sucks. Ok anyway, I've only been to Carowinds, PKD, and PKI.. 1. Carowinds (All the fanboys say HAAAAY, no really, Top Gun and the Flyers ALONE make this the best park) 2. Kings Dominion (It's Kings Island except with good rides and service) 3. Canadas Wonderland (This park intriques me, hope I can visit soon..) 4. Great America (Looks like they have some decent rides..) 5. Kings Island (Eww)
  13. 1 - 'Scooby Doo' at Carowinds 100 - Leap The Dips at Lakemont 200 - Lost Coaster of Superstion Mountain at Indiana Beach 300 - Dragon Coaster at Flamingo Land -J (Here's to getting 400 AND 500 next year..)
  14. Thanks for the update Cameron, its great to hear that Cornball Express is running even better. Hopefully in a few weeks (July 31st) I'll be able to ride it another 43 times.. -J (IB is the BEST PARK EVER.. well right after Knoebels..)
  15. Well I didn't attempt to ride by myself as my little brother was with me, so I have no idea what the rule is to be honest.
  16. Uhhh nothing.. this way I don't get in trouble when it doesn't happen.
  17. Pretty much Wes. At the one at Lakemont I just spun the wheel like we were in some Teacups or something, it was the most crazy, intense, maddening, insane, flat ride ever. I'll have to get some video (maybe even POV) in a few weeks. I think Skydivers and Zippers are probably 1-2 in my 'favorite flat' category. -J (Mmmm Old School Chance..)
  18. A little birdie told me its going to Canada... Carowinds still has a shot at the one from Kings Island though..
  19. More bird themed coasters? Man now I'm really confused.. Saw this on another coaster related website.. Know anything about this Chuck? Between BGW and Dollywood alone 2007 is shaping up to be a great year.. I'm smack dab in the middle of the two parks. Just hope Carowinds and PKD get some noteworthy attractions... -J (Goes to search for famous French birds..)
  20. Great TR Wes, one question though.. is the Skydiver still there? Thats probably the thing I'm looking forward to most when I go in a few weeks. Here is a pic of the one at Lakemont if you aren't sure... The most insane flat ride ever. Once again thanks for the TR and now I'm REALLY looking forward to my visit later in the month! EDIT: Durr a look in your pics reveals all.. Why didn't you ride? Was it down? Or did you just chicken out..

    While I'm obviously not Robb nor Elissa, I visited the park last year and have 62 pics, and a short trip report. Hope that holds you over till whenever R&E get there. -J (J2 ROCKS..)
  22. LOL. I could have SWORE yall were right behind me on that long ass moving walkway. Next thing I know, I turned around and I was all alone... and I was scared. Gatwick was a scary and quite depressing place... Next time I see you I'll have to start out with a 'goodbye' to make up for it!
  23. DUDE Teeny Weeny is the most amazing coaster ever. Its fishtail effect actually works, unlike Italian Job.. Sorry I haven't posted till now, but amazing TR so far Nicole. Still the best day yet to come..
  24. I am not 100% on this, but I'm sure Dollywood's old Flooded Mine used to be where the Daredevil Falls log flume is now. Take a look at this map from 1994. What those pictures show is one of the many museums in the park, and the now defunct gift shop under it. I think the popular rumor was that is where the new Euro Fighter is going to be, if of course its not back by Thunderhead/Timber Tower. Sad they ever removed it, I also thought SDC's was amazing, seemed like a perfect ride for Dollywood.
  25. ^^Here is the RCDB entry for the coaster, at its previous location at Flamingo Land in England. Now if we can just figure out where Bullet went... -J (Who smells a weekend trip..)
