  1. Colossus and Revolution are classics. It would be great if they refurbished both of them...part of roller coaster history.
  2. Fantastic photos Ken. Thanks for posting. It's like re-living the trip again
  3. How about having some sort of "viewers choice all-stars" edition of RC in the Raw? People can vote for the top 15 wood and top 15 steel that they'd like to see, and the we won't know the results until you release the DVD...gets people invested in the product.
  4. Showing my age, but in 1975 it was The Corkscrew at Knott's Berry Farm. I cried in line and my dad dragged me on. I loved it. Then we went to Magic Mountain that next year and I rode The Great American Revolution. Loved it. The next looping two were Turn of the Century and Tidal Wave at Marriott's Great America in Santa Clara. Good times!
  5. Great Photos and Trip Report, Kyle. It was so much fun to look through the pictures and re-live the trip again. It was a blast!
  6. Pleasant Surprise: Viper at Six Flags Great America. I rode it for the first time last year. While in line, I thought it was going to be a horrible wooden death machine, but when I rode it, it was surprisingly smooth with some nice pops of air!
  7. I would love to see a TPR Coaster/Theme Park Award..."Bucking Donkey Award"? I can see ESPN picking this up as a show...
  8. The TPR trips that I have been on have been the best vacations of my life! Well, except for that 2 weeks in Tahiti when I had an over water bungalow and I went swimming with the sharks. I should clarify, the TPR trips that I have been on have been the best vacations for under $10,000 that I have ever been on! Go, you'll have an amazing time. If you like theme parks and roller coasters, there is no better way to experience them than with a group of TPR enthusiasts. The tours are impeccably organized and delivered, kind of like Michelle Obama's speech last night!
  9. I, too, would like to see Holiday World on the Midwest trip...I understand if it's not possible...just putting a request in...
  10. Wow, interesting park, I like its uniqueness. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in Orlando.
  11. I never really wanted to go through a DA attraction, but now that I see the pics, it looks like it's worth doing for 5 bucks. Thanks Chuck.
  12. This coaster looks fantastic! BTW, Leviathan is really great for those of you that haven't been on it. So FAST and the first drop is awesome.
  13. Okay, I just rode it two more times...the back row is the best!
  14. I agree with the review above. I was so happy that the first rider auction turned into a mini ERT! I got to ride Levi 7 times and got to experiment in different rows. I can't decide which row I like better, the front or the back. In the back, you fly over that first hill literally free falling!!! In the front you hang there looking straight down...it looks like the track curves and disappears beneath you. Amazing airtime in the front and back, especially on the little bunny hill after the first turn around. It is a great combination of height and speed, with low to the ground thrills. Millenium Force has been outdone for sure.
  15. Thanks Theme Park Review for an awesome WCB. I definitely got my coaster fix for the winter!
  16. I have an extra Saturday SFMM ticket to WCB along with the add-on dinner. If you want to buy either or both from me, send me a message. See you all Saturday and Sunday!!!
  17. Hi Everyone, I have one extra ticket (one of my friends can't go after all) to both days of WCB. Send me a message if you're interested. I just saw in the store that the event is Sold Out!!!
  18. Out of all the new coasters this year, this is the one that I am most looking forward to!!!!
  19. Elissa, where did you have Apocalypse at SFMM? I think it's really underrated.

  21. I'm guessing that since no one has included the Texas Giant in their top 10...it must refer to the old Texas Giant.
  22. I have the same question: Old Texas Giant or New Texas Giant? I don't want to submit until I know.
