  1. My fridge is almost out of beer... that's f**king terrifying!!!
  2. *Edit: Doh completely missed the rank in order part... fixed now!* Well, I don't have a home park so I'll use Tusenfryd as I've done for the other games like this. SuperSplash - My favorite color scheme at Tusenfryd. The yellow, red and brown boats works really well with the blue track and red supports. Speed Monster - The colors are pretty good, but I wish it was a little bit brighter. Maybe it's because the track is starting to get somewhat faded that I feel this, but even so it doesn't stand out as much as I would want the parks star attraction to do. The red train looks good against the blue track, but the grey train is quite dull looking. Loopen - I love the bright yellow Arrow train which always looks like it's straight out of the factory. I like the red track, but I also wish this one was a little brighter. Thundercoaster - Standard unpainted wooden coaster which looks pretty good. Green and red trains which is a pretty safe choice, but not the most exciting. Dvergbanen - All red track/supports, which is fairly alright. I like the different bright colors on the cars. Western-Expressen - A very dull brown/grey color scheme, but it makes sense given the theming of the area of the park.
  3. It's absolutely pissing down today! Great day for staying inside, watching football and playing computer games!
  4. Well, Djurs is already on the agenda, but I realized that Hansa Park is only a 2 1/2 hours drive from where we are planning to stay. I will easily make that trip!
  5. Awesome report Chuck! I love all the stuff that's "going on" on the first drop. You have the tunnel on the drop, then there's another piece of track crossing over and then there's another tunnel. Should provide plenty of headchoppers and add a lot to the sensation of speed on the ride. I'm disappointed we didn't get to see any pictures of Chuck wearing it...
  6. I went American yesterday with this Sculpin IPA 7,0% from Ballast Point Brewing Company.
  7. WOW!!! That looks like a great ride! I like the layout, and the interactions with the surrounding buildings should provide an awesome experience! Let's hope it becomes a reality! For those who are not familiar with Gröna Lund I added a picture of the area as it currently looks. And some people claim that certain parks don't have space to build new coasters....
  8. Lucky Jack Black Edition 4,7% from Lervig Aktiebryggeri. Quite good stuff!
  9. ^^Is there any day that isn't "national something" day??
  10. ^Well, I'd say it's rather difficult to judge the pacing with all the slowed down/sped up footage, but it sure looks like a very fun ride. And yes, I'm totally digging the trains as well. They definitely have something Magnum-esque about them!
  11. I'm sooooooooooo not a morning person....
  12. I haven't been on any wingriders so I cannot comment on how I think the ride experience will be, but it sure is one impressive looking ride. I'm absolutely loving those colors!!!
  13. Score: 17 of 101 (17%) Rank: #36 of 62 users (top 60%) I was off to a good start with 11 on the first page, but after that there wasn't many B&M's I have ridden...
  14. So...did that make you #87? Or # ..... 89....? #89.... I mean, couldn't I at least have gotten a tie??!
  15. These games are always fun! 1. What is the farthest distance you've traveled to specifically visit a theme park? Bergen (Norway) to Orlando, Florida. About 7100 km / 4400 miles. 2. Your favorite coaster in the state you live in? Well, that has to be country for me, and my favorite coaster in Norway is Speedmonster. 3. Would you rather wait in line for a boomerang (at any park) or a VR coaster @ a Six Flags? I have to go for VR as I haven’t tried any yet, but I’ve been on a handful of Boomerangs. 4. Have u ever been the only person in a train during a coaster ride? Not completely alone, but I’ve been on Kraken with only two other people in the front row, rest of train was empty. 5. What is your favorite thing to do at your home park that does not involve riding something? Hang out by the launch section on Speedmonster and look at peoples reactions. 6. Better time for ERT: Early morning or late night? Late night 7. Name some theme park food that *sounds* gross, yet is oh-so-delicious? Haven’t tried any that falls into this category... 8. Name your top three "bucketlist" coasters you have yet to ride. X2 Millenium Force Olympia Looping 9. Have you ever been E-Vac'd? Did you receive anything if you did? Yes, a couple of times: PeopleMover @ Magic Kingdom – received a fastpass Xpress @ Walibi Holland – this one was really fun, as we got the full launch before slamming on the brakes at the end of the launch track. Received a fastpass as we exited the ride. BONUS E-VAC PICTURE (more pics in my trip report) 10. What is the longest length of time you've waited for a coaster? I think around 90+ minutes for Thundercoaster at Tusenfryd. 11. Worst flat ride ever. Name it. My flat ride experience is very limited and I don’t think I have ridden any truly awful ones... but the Mondial Roll-Over that was at Tusenfryd for a few years was pretty bad! 12. Your favorite SWEET treat at a park that is NOT your home park. Whatever it was that I bought from the Main Street bakery in Magic Kingdom. 13. Congratulations! After aggressively gambling on the Plinko game you finally won a front of the line pass. Which ride do you use it on? Lightning Rod 14. If you could have a lifetime fast pass to ONE attraction what would it be? Space Mountain @ Magic Kingdom. This ride is just soooo much fun every single time! 15. Have you ever been next to someone that puked on a coaster? Fortunately not! 16. Your home park is getting a new B&M and YOU get to pick what type. Do you want an invert/hyper/dive/floorless/flyer/wing/standup? All of the above is not an option. Inverted coaster 17. Name your favorite Vekoma. Rock’n Rollercoaster @ Disney’s Hollywood Studios 18. What water ride delivers the most unacceptable amount of wetness? Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls at Islands of Adventure 19. If you were able to help design a coaster would you want it to focus on airtime or inversions/positive G's? Airtime 20. Most comfortable trains/seats for a coaster are... B&M hyper 21. Choose one: Unlimited front-of-the-line access to your favorite coaster at your home park for one season OR $1,000 cash? This is easy. My home park Tusenfryd is 300 miles away and I visit once every second year or so…. So cash it is! 22. You just got drowned by a flume/rapids/chute-the-chutes. Do you pay the $$ for the dryer machine or do you continue on with your day trudging around like soggy dog? If I go on a water ride likely to make me wet it’s usually warm enough to not have to use the dryer, so no I will not pay… 23. What is the worst food you've had at your home park? A pizza at Tusenfryd some years ago… 24. You're at Cedar Point. You have a one hour ERT session on ONE coaster of your choice. You choose... Millenium Force 25. Favorite (non-clone) dark ride? Test Track 26. What was your favorite park you visited in 2016? Walibi Holland 27. What's your current credit count? Don't be shy. I don’t know the exact count, but I think it’s around 150. 28. Winner winner chicken dinner! You just won a trip with hotel and airfare included. The catch is its only good for Six Flags America or Mt Olympus. Which do you choose? Six Flags America 29. What is the best Intamin coaster you have ridden? El Toro @ SFGADV 30. Your home park has to remove one coaster and one flat for an expansion. Which two rides would you be OK with losing? Coaster: Loopen. While the ride holds some sentimental value for me, the space could be used for something better. Flat ride: I would not care if Tusenfryd got ride of Skycoaster as I never cared much for upcharge rides. 31. Song/music you've heard playing at a park that absolutely has not business being played in a theme park? Can’t think of any… 32. There's 5 minutes before the park closes. You choose to: Reride your favorite coaster in the park, OR get the new kiddie/junior coaster credit? Reride my favorite coaster. I don’t care about credits… 33. Do you visit the waterpark if it's connected to the amusement park? Nah, not a big fan of waterparks… 34. What 2017 addition are you most looking forward to? Assuming that RMC Mean Streak is for 2018, there’s not really many stand out attractions opening this year. But I think Mystic Timbers will be a great ride, I love the low-to-the-ground layout. 35. What was the most disappointing addition to your home park in the past 10 years? A dark ride called Thor’s Hammer. I don’t think it’s a bad ride, but the park really hyped it up and it does not live up to the expectations. 36. The most overrated coaster ever is... Lost Gravity 37. What ride makes you wanna vomit? Wild Arctic @ Sea World Orlando. I hated it and couldn’t wait for the ride to be over as it made me really dizzy… 38. What is the best consolation prize you've won at a games booth? I don’t play games. 39. And the worst? See above. 40. End this questionnaire by posting a picture of your favorite light package (coaster/flat). Has been posted earlier by someone, but the light package on Monster @ Adventureland is just incredible!
  16. That is really awesome! I definitely remember some of those locations from playing CoD:MW!
  17. That looks sweet! Like the rest of you I'm digging that color scheme. Looks like the perfect ride for a park with limited space!
  18. At Tusenfryd the old spot for their Enterprise ride, which was removed in 2005, is still highly obvious.
  19. Nice video, makes me want to go back to Seaworld! Impressed at how they managed to get cats to perform in the show! I mean, training killer whales is one thing, but cats is on a whole other level...
