  1. I liked it. There were some bumps, but thats expected. In time, they will go away as you get used to the game. It did get a little close with the helix on the first turnaround. Also, use custom supports, trust me, you'll like them a lot.
  2. Is there any way to record your ride without using a camera? If so, then do you have to install a program, and is it free?
  3. Here's my latest coaster, an Intamin prefab known as Deadlock. Here are some stats: Height: 196 ft Max Speed: 71 MPH Max Positive G-force: 5.0 Max Negative G-force: -1.6 Length: 6,239 ft I'll save the rest for the pics and download. Deadlock.nltrack Overview Action shot First Drop
  4. Its shocking that only a couple weeks ago we were reading his trip reports. I really hope he got to ride Mavy. That would have made his life complete. Thats a gorgeous picture. I'm sure wherever his spirit is, he's thankful.
  5. A couple of tips to help you out...First, the roll out of the station. You should raise where the train is upside down so the track is 'heartlined' to a certain extent. Now the lift. I would say that you don't use the tubular supports and build towers instead. It would be a lot easier to build. You're building them wrong anyway. Lastly, wherever you have a straight part, use a stiff grey rod instead of a green flexi rod. This will add a lot of support. Also, you have a great station for a beginner.
  6. If you had no choice, then go. Get all the large rides in first so you can ride all the smaller rides fast. Beware of Ghostrider. There is a hidden Queue. It might be a good idea to go there first, no matter how rough it is. If you arrive and you find that your luggage takes a long time and the traffic is horrible, there is always the Santa Monica Pier.
  7. Goliath has 5th row for flash pass. I think you can wait for front row too. Le Vampire is last row if I remember correctly.
  8. Do as Niiicolaaah said, unless your going for 2 days. Hit Goliath or Vampire first. Vampire, even on a non crowded day will have at least a 45 minute wait. Another good idea is to do Taboggan Nordique at the beginning. That is probably the slowest moving line in the world.
  9. I'm sure some coasters have problems, but they got Renegade open pretty fast after it started testing. Who knows. Maybe they got lucky with Renegade.
  10. I hope all the trouble this ride is having isn't a bad omen. They are so close, but yet so far!
  11. Here's some pics. Comments appreciated. Enjoy! One last shot of Goliath Insane airtime! Cobra Overview shot Best Batman clone I've been on Insane 0-g roll on Vampire Vertical Loop shot!!!!!!111!11 Go crazy! Super Manege Le Monstre and it's Hugeness Shot you've seen before, but I'm showing you anyways What ride are we here for again? Goliath's enterance Park signage! Exciting!
  12. Day two at La Ronde! I got in the park at 10:50 and headed straight for Tobaggan Nordique. Tobaggan Nordique rides: 1 rating: 6/10 This is a wild mouse ride, but it has more tight turns on the bottom level instead of the wide turnarounds. The cars are themed to different bobsleds. I ended getting, of course, Canada(how ironic?). Next, I saw that Super Manege was open. When I got there, it was a walk on. Super Manege rides: 1 rating: 6/10 I instantly went to the front row, pulled my restraint down, and braced myself. This Vekoma corkscrew is a clone of Super Wirbel a
  13. The park opened at 10:30 and we walked to the back of the park. Looming in the distance was Goliath. At 10:40, we got in line. Goliath rides: 2 rating: 9/10 Goliath's trains are very comfortable, with bucket seats and large, clamshell restraints. You get dispatched and your train climbs the 45* lifthill. At the top, you get a brief view of the St. Lawrence river before plunging at a 70 degree angle to the ground. Up you go into three hills filled with borderline ejector airtime. You start to ascend the turn around when you change direction and get some nice floater air. Around the tu
  14. I had poutine for lunch, and I did get a crepe later in the day. Le Monstre was running with a 2 train operation, so riding it was fine. I had a great time at the park and I will be posting a trip report soon. Thanks for the advice.
  15. I got the crest and pullout finished. Now I have to start the crossover. The only problem is I will be gone until the 19th, so construction will be on hold until the 20th. I know the transition from flat to banked looks horrible, but thats what you get when you don't heartline. Does anybody like the new batter brace? I think I need to make it higher. Any suggestions?
  16. Once you get through the toll booths, stay to the left and drive down perimeter road. Take it all the way to the Soak City lot in back. Then walk under Magnum to the gate.
  17. It's slowly coming together. The drop is done and looks great. Next comes the crossover. I will also work a bit on the lift. There will be a batter brace, but I don't know what size to use. I have the bigger size built a bit to show what it looks like, but the smaller size will be half as wide. Here are pics:
  18. I will be at La Ronde sometime next week, and I was wondering if anybody had some good advice on which order to ride the rides and/or places to eat. I already know to go to Goliath first(obviously). Maybe I will see some TPR shirts there.
  19. In that case, go to the back of the park and ride Maverick. Do MF next. After that, go around the lagoons to TTD. Start to work your way to the front of the park, then go to the back again and get all the coasters you missed.
  20. Yes, the water is to cool the channel where the catch car is as well as the cable. ^ is right about the steam.
  21. For early entry, its best to head straight for maverick. If you don't run, you will have to wait close to a half hour. If you run, it will be a walk on. Millennium Force is your next best bet. Go there after Maverick. There isn't a way to really credit whore CP since you can't ride Jr. Gemini. You can ride Woodstock Express, but I would rather ride the bigger rides.
  22. Just don't leave the resort and you will be fine. PKI ManJZ: Make sure that you get in line at the Magnum gate before 8:40, cause the line can get very long. Be ready to run too.
  23. Guess who's building again!!! Thats right, I'm currently working on another classic woodie with some pretty unique, but realistic supports. This ride will feature a Crystal Beach Cyclone style first drop, a cross-over, and the legendary 'whirlpool'. Construction has started and the drop is about 60% complete. The multi radii supports are working great and look awesome. Unfortunately, construction will probably be quite slow due to the fact that I'm still trying to hang out with my friends and enjoy summer. Fortunately for you guys, a lot of my friends will be busy for the rest of the summer so
  24. Maverick is an amazing ride from start to finish. I thought that other coasters were insane, but this truely gives you that feeling that you are at the mercy of the machine, and if you try to escape it, you will get hurt. I know that I won't get hurt, but you get the point. To tell you the truth, I can't single out a best part of the ride. If only they could keep the heartline roll. I think that if they stretched it out, they could have saved it easily. Did anybody who has ridden it recently notice that there is a vibration when the train moves at high speeds? My last three rides had this
  25. ^Agreed. The back on Maverick is definately one of the most intense seats you can find on any roller coaster. The front is just a little bit less intense, but the great view makes up for it.
