  1. I don't really understand the desire for a ride which at the end of the day is pretty much just a taller version of Lasso, or whatever other generic Yo-Yo type ride. The added height is cool from a taking in the sights perspective, but I personally would much rather have the money spent on something unique, or forbid fixing issues with the park in the appearance or maintenance departments. But that’s not the Six Flags “Keep building rides while the infrastructure around it deteriates” way!
  2. It's a damn good family coaster and has one of the best lead cars I've seen.
  3. More clues posted to Carowinds’ Twitter this morning.
  4. Does anyone know if X2 was partially responsible for Six Flags going bankrupt? I'm guessing rides like Kingda Ka, El Toro, both Goliaths and Tatsu were probably responsible for SF going bankrupt. Six Flags was responsible for Six Flags going bankrupt.
  5. ^Nylon wheels are louder, yes, but have less friction than polyurethane thus increasing train speed. Most (if not, all) floorless coasters have nylon wheels.
  6. That sounds logical. I remember green was the last train to go into service so it sounds right that it would come last in the rotation. The one issue with RMC's I've noticed between the two I ride often is they seem to have a lot of issues with the sensors that tell when the restraints are closed. I see it all the time on both TC and Joker. SFDK often has to take one of their two trains out of service for a day or two when it keeps happening repeatedly on one of the trains. Perhaps once they take it out of service maintenance has a way of excluding that row from the computer so they can then put it back in service without using that row and the computer will allow it to dispatch. Back of each car has a restraint bypass which makes it easy to take rows out of service which I think was a great idea.
  7. Interesting that purple has been gone for so long. I do know that their cycle shop is severely understaffed so it might be sitting back there still getting refurbished. With 4 trains, there should always be 3 in service but this is SF so yea, not surprised.
  8. Nice TR! Your kids are brave for riding the Sky Coaster! My daughter is 12 and Flight of The Hippogriff at USH is as brave as she gets.
  9. "Zero-Force Touch Buttons" Sea World Parks Group use them quite a bit at their coasters.
  10. ^I'm assuming you're referring to operator presence switches like these?
  11. As I said in an earlier post. I found out Sunday's attendance was 19,000. That's incredible! Today was much better. Only the 3 lot was full. No overflow parking today. I think it's all due to "bring a friend free" promotion. With as much space and as many rides as SFMM has, 19,000 people shouldn't feel busy at all if that number is accurate. But that also assumes the coasters are being operated at anywhere close to theoretical capacity...
  12. That thing was in bad shape when I stopped to ride Desperado a couple years ago. Wonder why they left it to rot.
  13. This! This right here!! I'm a nerd but some enthusiasts take it to another level.
  14. “Cedar Fair Roller Coaster Construction” FB page just posted these photos: When compared to Helix’s construction photos, you can definitely see the resemblance...
  15. Can't wait to ride in a few weeks. I loved S:UF @ SFDK so I expect this to be just as amazing.
  16. ^Sorry to hear this. What amazes me is how guests can still be a$$holes to the employees and management when these types of situations are out of the park's control. SMH
