  1. RMC has truly done an outstanding job on the reinvention of Colossus and Wicked Cyclone I mean I am a true Intamin fanboy but I haven't even see one of their coasters where every inch of track just looks like WOW!!! imo. After the neutering of Rev and Colossus us SFMM fans have been crying for years that this park needs something with some airtime. We got Goliath but only came with one airhill some appreciate it others like me are like meh . RMC comes in and finally gives us Mountain dwellers something that looks like it will be airtime galore from the run to the lift hill to the pop up into the final break run looks like there will be airtime with twisty goodness added into the mix. Yes we can pick TC apart and say it could be taller, longer, this or that but what we actually have is looking great to me. I highly appreciate what RMC has done with TC and I truly can not wait to experience Twisted Colossus!!!
  2. I also agree with this!!! I was hoping for a steep straight drop like Goliath(SFGAm). SFMM has/had a chance to turn Colossus back into a major airtime machine, yet the more I hear the more it sounds like another inversion fest. Yeah there still maybe some airtime this is RMC, Im just sick of SFMM and inversions. The most I was hoping for inversion wise was maybe a Zero g stall not a twisted mass of loops and barrel rolls.
  3. Oh well I'm wrong I305 track is on the back of a flat bed so I guess it is possible that track was seen today!!!
  4. What I don't understand is how can you see Green Intamin track on the freeway through a shipping container??? Doesn't all Intamin track come from over seas??? Have they started using a manufacturer in the US like B&M?
  5. Intamin is a maintenance nightmare well if you think you can make a 10/12,000 horsepower hydraulic motor launch a multi-ton train perfectly every time or have a single cable tow a multi-ton train up a 300+ foot hill perfectly every time I'm sure Intamin would love to have your expertise in their company. I love how enthusiast love to rag on Intamin yet they are always at the top of the coaster rankings for them to be such are horrible company it sure hasn't stopped amusement parks all over the world from buying them just look at 2013 there are 8 Intamins to 2 B&M and with that said... I am hoping KI get's an Intamin Giga or a longer more bad a$$ version of Maverick!!!
  6. How is this a prototype this is a Lifthill based coaster with 14 inversions manufacturers have been using chain lifts and making inversions for decades, their is nothing new about the Smiler beside it having 14 inversions which all of them have been done before. Yet Intamin get's creamed for creating 400+ foot coasters with never done before on a coaster hydraulic launches, 300+ foot lift hills with cable lifts if they don't work perfect every time, yet Gerstlauer has failed to get a coaster open using tried and proven tech and the excuse is it's a prototype
  7. ^Yes I have many times and it was not the pushing, shoving, punching, borderline riot that I guess some of you have experienced I guess I've just been getting lucky for over 20+ years of going to this place.
  8. Oh yawn the record playing of SFMM is a ghetto dump warzone is played out, I've been going to this park for over 20+ years and it is not near bout as bad as you guys make it out to be. Anyways I'm not trying to argue I just think the buses will work out much better then you guys think they will and will be much better then those old smelly slow bumpy trams that they've been using. I guess we all will see how they work out this summer whether it's good or bad
  9. Wow I'm surprised to see so many psychics in one place, since so many can see the future disaster of SFMM bus/trams operations can you also see and tell me if an Intamin Giga is in SFMM future and the disaster of operations it will bring if any
  10. Wow just wow after seeing this and then seeing SFMMs Full Throttle I'm just sick to my stomach lol This looks like everything Full Throttle should have been but it's not Oh well looks like Liseberg is getting a great coaster all the more reason to save up for TPRs Scandi 2014 trip
  11. Looks very nice loving all the airtime or potential for airtime I'm seeing in that layout.
  12. ^ You got what I was going for with the double corkscrew Thanks for the feedback guys!!!
  13. Rumors are running rampant with the removal of Perilous Plunge everything has been rumored to be going into that spot. So here's my take on the Dive Machine idea/rumor/speculation :O) Stats: 215 feet tall, with a 200 foot 90* vertical drop, 2808 feet in length, 73 mph max speed. Elements: 128 foot tall Immelman Loop , 110 foot tall high speed Overbanked Turn, DOUBLE CORKSCREW!!! at 77 and 65 feet tall , 40 foot negative G speed hill.
  14. Looks like they are wasting no time saw this posted to Knotts Network Facebook page Photo Credit goes to Timothy Dennison
  15. Hmm...Skyrush is built over water!!! I refuse work work myself up into another Full throttle meltdown lol, so I'm keeping my sights low, like on splash battle low . So if it does turns out to be one of the goodies you guys are speculating about I will be overjoyed, I mean who wouldn't wan't a launched eurofighter hyper dive machine
  16. I'm dreaming here... B&M megalite with a splashdown, Intamin started it, Mack has tried it, now it's B&M's turn
  17. I'm still in fetal position and screaming it's become more of a chant now of why SFMM why !!!I've pulled the hair out of one entire side of my head and this has been going on since about 7am this morning
  18. Wow this looks like the best new coaster of 2013 so far Imo, it looks absolutely freakin amazing I can not wait to try this beast out!!! It looks exactly how I was imagining it would turn out... twisted airtime overbanked galore wish I could say the same for another coaster announced today in the same chain further west lol
  19. OYBOYOBOYOBOYBOYBOY Sounds like to me a giant shuttle coaster or maybe I reading and picturing it wrong!!! How will you launch into a giant loop, go over the mountain, dive down into the tunnel and then stop, then launch out of tunnel backwards, only to fall back into the tunnel , then over a top hat without it being a shuttle coaster?
  20. You poor thing... I'll be a poor thing if it's reveled tomorrow that it is nothing more then a gimmick inversion and I'm balled up in fetal position crying pulling my hair out screaming WHY SFMM WHY!!!
  21. ^at least let there be a terrain hugging airtime filled ride that leads into the gimmick inversion
  22. SFGADv just posted this to their Facebook page 3 big pieces of NEWS!!! BIG, BIGGER, BIGGEST hmmm what are you guys thoughts on this? Maybe that rumored Lex Luther beating drop ride?, gasp what about SF first Giga coaster? maybe something for the Safari, HH, and a ride/coaster for the park? Hurry up Aug. 30th!!!
  23. Sorry I'll start my complaining now lol I see nor hear nothing appealing about that Screamscrape rumor, so we went from wishing for a giga, to something like an airtime terrain maverick-ish coaster to being ok with a gimmick giant loop top hat thingie that uses the same structure ummm ok That sketch that SoCalCoasters drew up is nice but come on if that was really all to this ride talk about a over hyped let down I'm sorry and I'm still trying to stay open minded until the announcment on the 30th but man it's hard to stay positive with these types of rumors coming out. I 110% agree with this!!!
