  1. What in the he are you even talking about??? The link redirects. Sorry if I wasn't clear.
  2. Sounds like one side will resemble the original a bit more. Could we see a more "gentle" Iron Horse for that side, or topper? Or is SFMM just doing a Cedar Fair style diversion? Maybe "Twisted" will be an inversion-filled Iron Horse and "Classic" would be an airtime-focused Iron Horse.
  3. No! No more red or orange Rocky Mountain coasters please! Why exactly does SF do this? it reminds me of Cedar Fair's infamous streak of red rides with yellow supports.
  4. Screamscape rumors that SFGAd and maybe some other SF parks would get that. That would be a little weird to see, considering that those are giant versions of Ring of Fire, a ride I typically associate with little carnivals.
  5. If you want real backup restraints, use a Premier style lap bar that holds the bar to the side of the seat. That way, you can't fly out if the bar fails and you can't sit down and pull down the bar without realizing that a seatbelt is there.
  6. This looks cool! Snake PIt was really fun. Hopefully Cedar Point gets some drop box slides, although I'd like to see a bit more variety.
  7. I'm sorry that I don't think this coaster is amazing. I just think Intamin would done way better if they done this project. Even though I highly doubt Cedar Fair will ever build a Intamin again, I still think they could have done way better. Now I think if Cedar Fair wanted to be original they would have made the first B&M "Giga Twister". Something Raging Bull, but 10x better. That just my opinion though. I never said "You must say this ride is amazing". All I said was that calling a 325 foot tall coaster boring is ridiculous. But I don't want to get into a battle over this, so moving on... I absolutely love the color scheme. That shade of blue is amazing and the green and white compliment it so well. I do like the color choices Cedar Fair are choosing for their new rides. When I saw the track at the plant I thought it was gonna look extremely ugly, but the animation definitely changed my mind. That track looks beautiful. Same! I don't really love the colors in theory, but in practice it is beautiful!
  8. Cedar Fair is self-insured, right? They have more control than a normal company does. Is it that hard to explain, oh, that no coaster from this manufacturer, or at least this model, has ejected somebody? Ever? If only parks were to respond this quickly to things like removing trims from coasters...
  9. ^But why? As far as I know, B&M hypers have not experienced an ejection accident related to weight, restraint failure, or any combination of the 2, while I don't even think B&M has ever experienced an ejection accident. The fact that you need to spend money and possibly increase dispatch times to calm the GP's fears about an accident that hasn't happened (and probably won't happen) on that kind of coaster is idiotic.
  10. About 9-car trains, Leviathan has 8 car trains too. I wonder if B&M will ever build a hyper (not giga) with these trains again, and if they do, whether they will install 8 or 9 car trains.
  11. This picture from a Facebook group shows the specs of Fury- "Weightless drop"... yeah, I think this is sideways airtime. Hopefully it works out! I also see "barrel turn" being used. I remember Leviathan called this element a "barrel roll", which was fairly confusing. Finally, does anybody else notice the transfer track is after the station?
  12. I hope those last hills have some nice airtime. I love the ride, although I wish they could put a bit of airtime (like a speed hill) near the beginning. Otherwise, I love this. Does that turnaround look to you like it is designed for "sideways airtime" or is it just me? I wonder if this will have the "GP Pacifier" seatbelts... the renderings don't show them,= in shots that show the trains, but I doubt they'd render those in. Doesn't rumor have it that Leviathan will get the belts? I understand safety, but those belts are sort of bull crap - nobody has been ejected from a B&M hyper/mega/giga/whatever you want to call it, or any B&M as far as I know. They are among the safest coasters in an industry where even the "unsafe" (not really) models of rides are countless times safer than driving to the park, and likely safer than even flying on a plane!
  13. Second row... on 2-row PTC trains, aren't the first rows of individual cars smoother than the second rows of individual cars?
  14. It is confirmed. There is track on-site. Yeah, I know. It's just unusual. Probably because no track usually comes on site until post-announcement with some rides. With rides like I305, RCDB listed an Intamin as coming to KD before the announcement because of the track on site. On another note, Carowinds' B&M isn't on RCDB even though there is track on site for it.
  15. On NoLimits-Exchange, somebody pointed this out. Remember that RCDB doesn't put up coasters unless they are essentially confirmed- http://rcdb.com/1981.htm
  16. Weren't the pics of the flattened sidewinder on RCDB uploaded after the post about the messed up sidewinder? By the way, I can't see the pics, but it assume you mean the kinked sidewinder.
  17. After what happened on NTAG, I hope all parks choose the safer rout. It stinks that your wife is too big to ride certain coasters, but remember its for safety reasons. That's why children or pregnant women cannot ride certain rides. And yes in our society of political correctness they probably said your clothes were too thick instead of being honest and saying she herself is too big. Hey, maybe this will be motivation to drop a few pounds. I have seen lots of success stories on here from people that were motivated to lose weight after they were turned away from a ride. Also, pregnant women can't ride for safety of the child, not just size, right? The new RMC restraints seem much more accommodating from word of mouth. Despite this, Goliath at SFGAm is secure even when it is loose and I can rise up - I see no way even a loose bar could let me out. I hope all RMCs eventually get this restraint, especially if walk of shames become issues with the Gerstlauer bars. Does anybody here NOT like Goliath's restraints, for the record?
  18. I saw white supports were mentioned... I see some in the background... Eh, I'd have to see the colors as they will really appear to determine if I like it.
  19. The blueprints that were revealed did not show a double station. But if the ride has no MCBR or long brake run, a dual station could pull off 3 trains.
  20. Kings Island just posted a video on their Facebook showing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and challenging CP, CW, and Reds mascot Mr. Red. The challenge originally came from Holiday World.
  21. Aren't there actual water coasters/travelling log flumes with a layout similar to the double jump? Also, didn't TPR find some similar rides in Japan?
