  1. I had my hip replaced at 36 a couple of years back. I took most of the next year off, but have had no trouble riding coasters since then. That said, I haven't been on anything with really extreme air time either, and I'm a little worried about hip pressure from rides like Skyrush. Best of luck with your recovery!
  2. Honestly, I'm just stoked to have another dive machine in North America, and even better, closer to my house. Thanks CF!
  3. I was there last year and I didn't even realize it was going on(forgot to check the website). I got on most of the coasters and only rilized what was going on when in I could see it in line for Gemini. Cool, thanks. That makes me feel much better.
  4. I'm planning a trip to CP on Saturday, and just got an email about "Point Fest." Has anyone been there during that? How much of a sh#tshow should I be anticipating? I'm hesitant to pre-purchase Fastlane because of weather, and would really appreciate any information. Thanks!
  5. Dang. Just got into town and was hoping to get on Goliath. I don't suppose anyone knows if Goliath might open tomorrow?
  6. I'm 320 LBS and just fit after being pushed in a little. I can't fit on batman:TR and V2 Thanks, glad to hear that you could ride.
  7. I have yet to hear any horror stories about Goliath restraints, anyone not able to ride due to size? For what it's worth, I'm able to ride everything else I've ever gotten on, but this will be my first RMC.
  8. Any idea what sort of crowd I should expect for tomorrow? I've never done a park on Father's Day before, but I'll be in the area so I figured I may as well. Assuming that they'll be busy, is the Hershey fast-lane-dealie worth the money?
  9. Griffon was down all morning, hopefully it will be working when I go back in an hour. Lots of activity up top, and two stuck trains!
  10. But it's not a hyper, not to mention it has rough elements that a lot of folks enjoy that a RMC treatment could neuter. MA has two loopers, two woodies, and nothing that is a true steel signature. I'd much rather see a hyper than a wingrider, and the park wouldn't exactly be hurting itself by adding a ride with a 54" height requirement.
  11. I still think a megalite or B&M hyper is what this park really needs, but man would I prefer the Intamin, no matter how unlikely it might be. That said, I have been and will be happy with anything as long as the doors open every year!
  12. Hey guys, a few months back I was approached by the new Amazon short fiction imprint, Story Front, to submit some short stories. I did, and to my surprise, the one they chose was my horror/sci-fi shorty about a roller coaster. I'll post some info below, as well as a link, and if you have Amazon Prime the story is free to read. If any of you do check it out, I'd love to hear what you think, and would also be happy to answer any questions. Thirty years hasn’t changed Las Vegas—the desert just got dirtier. The biggest game in town centers on a massive, deadly roller coaster that winds its way through the Strip’s most famous attractions. On the first Saturday of every month, twenty-four desperate passengers get strapped into the notorious ride and gamble with their lives in a twisted game of chance, to the thrill of webcast audiences worldwide. One of them will win, and one will die, but the other twenty-two will escape with nothing but their lives. Bets are placed as the ride begins, but in Vegas, the house always wins. The Ride by acclaimed author Aric Davis is a terrifying near-future vision of bloodlust-as-entertainment taken to a horrific extreme. http://www.amazon.com/Ride-Short-Story-Aric-Davis-ebook/dp/B00F3LVB9U/ref=la_B0041TSCR4_1_11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1386329319&sr=1-11 http://www.amazon.com/Aric-Davis/e/B0041TSCR4/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_pop_1
  13. Hey all, I was wondering what sort of crowd I should expect in the park for a Saturday during Halloweekends. I've always gone on Sundays in the past-usually quite dead-and I'm trying to decide if I should pony up for the Fast Lane Plus in advance. Thanks for your help!
  14. I have no idea what they'll build, but I know that I would have a hard time justifying building a trip around a B&M, regardless of reliability. Now, an Intamin, especially in an opening year? No question that my daughter and I will be there.
  15. The Intamin has the potential to be one of the best thrill rides ever made? Seriously, I like both manufacturers, but B&M scored a tie at best when it comes to Leviathan versus Millennium Force. I-305 is far superior to both rides, and I'm not alone in thinking that.
  16. Speculation with few clues if you ask me. I am surprised nobody has mentioned Intamin as a possibility too, though we have heard the rumored Eagle RMC rehab, so maybe that is where the RMC focus originated. As great as an RMC would be, an Intamin plug and play would be absolutely fantastic as well.
  17. Oh, that would just be hilarious! I mean, I'd be bummed, but that would be freaking incredible.
  18. I lost 30 pounds this spring after a scare on a couple of rides last fall. Best decision I've made in awhile, and hearing the extra clicks is pretty nice.
