  1. Just out of curiosity, will you be at Cedar Point on August 1st?
  2. I'm trying to get Wild! onto my Mac. I can't juice the "data2.cab" file though. No items are found. Any ideas?
  3. Behind someone named Colin who likes ClubTPR on Facebook. Aaronkv, I have been behind you MANY times. I'm Austin
  4. The worst Boomerang was the one at Hershey. I got a concussion on the cobra roll. I rode Chaos in the rain. I flipped over 6 times in a row! My harness got stuck on dispatch...
  5. I went on the....the 3rd? Yes, the 3rd. And since everybody thinks I'm being super-negative (which I kind of am), here is my verdict. Twister II: Great woody, I liked it. I thought the first drop was great, and I would definitely ride it again. Sidewinder: Line was too long. If it was a walk on, or less than 5 minute wait, I would of rode it again. Mind-Eraser: Fun Layout and good theming. It just would of been better if it was smoother. I KNEW THIS WAS TO BE EXPECTED. Boomerang: Better than most Boomerangs out there. I actually rode it maybe 4 times. IT WASN'T THAT BAD! Half-Pipe: Nothing wrong. I loved it!
  6. I went again later that week in a lightning storm There was still a huge crowd there, so be careful.
  7. Magical Title Fairy, Could you please change mine to "Intamin Droptower Fanboy"?
  8. ^ Come to think of it. I did ride the blue train, like, 5 times I remember the red train wasn't that much better though. BTW, if you are going again, get the VIP pass. It is worth it!
  9. Does Vekoma's hate Arizonans? There was some head-banging on the Boomerang. A little on the MInd Eraser? Dude, I was about to go into a full blow concussion on that thing! The Arrow Shuttle statement was probably a little exaggerated, but it was a bad experience. It did have some good airtime!
  10. Yes, the Flying Coaster is still there. It is all boarded up though. I did ride in a few years back and it was really fun. I knew the SLC would hurt, but it was a lot worse than I thought it would be. Half-Pipe was closed all day. I went later that week and it was open for an hour. I rode it. It is my favorite ride in the whole park. Actually (being the negative me), I actually got a little headbanging on it too! It was just one big hit at the bottom though.
  11. ^ How dare you say the SLC was smooth! That was the 2nd roughest ride I have ever been on! Boomerang was Ok, except for the fact it almost stalled upside-down while I was on it! As for Twister II, I expected more airtime in the back. On Sidewinder maybe an instant forward-to-back transition would of made the line shorter... I never said anything about Sidewinder being rough though. It was actually pretty smooth. Now for Manhattan Express!!!
  12. I'm not a negative person. I liked the park. I just hate getting concussions on Vekomas. I'm pretty sure you would have been in the same mood as me on that day. Boomerang was better than the one at Hershey. I'm also pretty sure you wouldn't have been impressed by the Arrow Shuttle either. The only park we have here is Castles N' Coasters. What do I think of it? Well, just read Robb's report on it.
  13. ^Actually, If i'm not mistaken, The shuttle coaster is a Vekoma Boomerang. I've actually ridden a few of them before. This one was actually a littly better than the one at Hersheypark, which I got a concussion on. Never EVER ride in the front row on that one! Edit: Oh, you mean the Sidewinder (green one)? Yes, that one really sucked and I will never ride one again..
  14. Sorry to sound kind of pushy, but I would appreciate some feedback!
  15. 4 rides in one shot! How awesome am I? Wait, the SLC doesn't count as a ride. Best way to waste your time at the park. I waited 30-45 minutes to go through a loop. Perfect ride for Vertical-Loop fanboys. Half-Pipe continued to test, but it still refused to open. Waste of time, I see you! SkyCoaster with death in the background. I'll leave you with this picture of a giant pink bear. Thanks for reading this part of the TR. Stay tuned for the Glennwood Springs Adventure Park TR!
  16. As none of you know, I live in Arizona. It sucks here. I cannot bear the 110+ degree days in the summer. In fact, right now (as I am typing this) it is 105 degrees! Anyway, about 2 weeks ago, I left for Colorado for a little side trip with my Grandma. We took off from Phoenix Sky Harbor to Las Vegas International. Las Vegas was our layover. The plane would leave in an hour and a half. During that hour and a half, I explored the airport. To my surprise, there was a casino there! I soon then pondered why I was surprised about that. After the layover, we took off for Denver International Airport. The flight over there was the worst flight ever in my life. First, there was the worst turbulence I have ever experienced. Second, the water was carbonated, which I hate. I proceeded to die of thirst after eating 2 bags of peanuts. Tertiary, it was freezing cold! It was like someone just opened the air vault. We landed in Denver after circling the runway twice due to approaching the runway too steeply. The drive to Denver was a long one, as the stupid airport was in the middle of a farm twenty miles out of downtown. Our hotel was 2 miles of Elitch. In fact, it was on Speer Bld. which was the same street that eventually broke off into Elitch. The next day, we arrived at Elitch, with great parking! They had all of these signs around. I never knew what they meant. Maybe.....oh, I don't know. This is pretty much the first thing you see when you walk into the park. A shop displaying all generic Elitch's shirts, hoodies, dresses, dice, etc. Actually, not many of the items there applied to me. I got my VIP pass handy, which would be the best deal of the whole park, and as my Grandma would say "That ain't saying much." They had an observation tower there. I had no idea if it was open, or if it was ever open. It just kind of...stood there. Island Kingdom Water Park. Didn't hit that. Doesn't it seem that there are 50 other water parks with the same name? Or is that just me? The Main Street was ok. It was small. Yes, very small. Moving on. Seriously! WTF does that mean? There is pretty much the whole park. Twister II is off to the far left. This is pretty surprising considering this was once a Six Flags park. The first ride was a Break-dance called "Hollywood and Vine". I've seen these before and never expected for it to be too intense. Of course, there was only ONE ride operator on the whole ride. So loading and unloading took about 7 minutes each. It started off pretty tame. Just a few swirls and such. Now, I'm not sure if my car was super-lubed, but this was probably 10x worse than the Dragon Ride at the Ghetto Fair! Yes, that is me in the yellow. What is that I see of in the distance? "Do I really need this credit?" I swear there was this HUGE rain cloud over this thing! "OMG WTF is this!?" Now, I don't know what I was thinking, but I decided to ride ANOTHER Vekoma after the concussion on the SLC. "Oh Please Vekoma Gods. Please don't send me into a coma! PLEASE!" (Me in the Second Row) "Gah!" For some reason, it ran SUPER slow backwards. In fact, it almost stalled in the Cobra Roll! I'm not even kidding! Stupid Half-Pipe was closed. I was looking forward so much to riding it! (I eventually did later that week.) Off to the Twister II. I actually ran really well. I was very impressed, although the back seat didn't provide much airtime. The entrance/exit. Don't ask me what happened to the picture. I don't know. I actually think it looks pretty cool! The horrible Tilt-A-Hurl, running amazingly slow. Waste of time, moving on. Twister II, I SEE you! Somewhere in the world, Dan rejoices. This, surprisingly, turned out to be the best ride in the park. Going up with some of my new friends. {/sarcasm} You get a beautiful view of downtown from the top, with a 5 second free-fall at the end! I do prefer, however, S&S Spaceshots. PART 2 COMING SOON
  17. ^ I counted this as a credit. I had more fun on it than some Roller Coasters! (*cough* MindEraser *cough*)
  18. Have a video or want to discuss Alpine Coasters, Toboggans, etc.? Post it here! I recently went to Glennwood Springs, Colorado to visit the Adventure Park there. I rode (what I've experienced) the fastest Alpine Coaster! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJkbBWXo4LE Note: This is just humorous, don't take it too seriously.
  19. I'm in the Front...I'm grinning in pain... Me on Mind Eraser... I'm the one in the yellow..
  20. Oh ya! It's a huge academic thing at my school to tour colleges.
  21. I hate having to make the decision to go tour U of Colorado or going to Elitches.......
