  1. Absolutely LOVE it! Yes, Pushing Daisies was the best show EVAR!!!11! (And yet they keep Private Practice? WTF?) And I love apple pies. So I'm totally hooked on this TR. And as your future hypothetical husband, I would SO be on board with a daughter named Chuck.
  2. I'm still waiting on the 'it's a scary world' overlay. Give each of those dolls a knife or axe or chainsaw. Dye the water red. Change the lyrics. It's a world of horror A world of tears It's a world of death And a world of fears...
  3. I couldn't find them when searching KnottsBrryFarm or knottsbrryfarm. So I just added the username to the end of Twitter to find their page: [/code]
  4. Didn't they just use the same blueprints from Knott's Silver Bullet with a few minor revisions? Some awesome shots! Thanks!
  5. If the Cinderella walk-thru is anything like the Sleeping Beauty walk-thru at DL, it'll be awesome. Added the concept art because I LOVE CONCEPT ART!!!!
  6. What a cool looking park! Reminds me of a Legoland without the Legos. And very family friendly. Thanks for the great shots.
  7. Oh man! I'm so jealous! I NEED to go here! The panorama shot of Wildfire is awesome! Thanks for the great shots.
  8. LOVED your captions! ...prefer it in the rear... HA! And anyone who can quote the greatest pre-show in the history of mankind ("mostly America") is all right by me. Welcome, and thanks for the great photos.
  9. No one at Subsonic Radio knew the answer. I thought for sure they would. I mean, they're obsessed with anything related to Space Mountain Star Tunnel Music. So, I thought they could nail this one.
  10. LOL! Love that line! And, don't worry, I have enough memories of Horizons for the both of us...and possibly a couple of midgets.
  11. Great America used to be my home park (since it was the closest). As soon as I got my license, I'd drive my red Pacer the hour and a half from Lodi just to take pictures and marathon this (and the Whizzer, of course). Here's one from the triple arm ferris wheel circa 1985. Tidal Wave. 1985.
  12. ^ I thought so at first, but they aren't wearing 3-D glasses in the art. The article DOES mention high def 3-D. Maybe an artist oversight? Transformers + Spiderman Ride Technology =
  13. I know of no other business/company in the world that invests between 4 and 20 million dollars in a single piece of equipment and then hires less-than-motivated workers at a reduced wage to operate it. Without supervision. And the result of this 'business plan' leads to unhappy guests. Nice. Does that make sense to anyone? That's not to say that the coaster community probably expects a little more than your average guest, but still... Also, I think there's a fine line between venting and whining. A different day might lead to different results...
  14. That webcam is driving me CRAZY! They've put up another lifthill support, but you can only see the shadow. (I know this makes me sound like an obsessed geek, but I sure wish they'd widen the view on that thing. Yeesh!)
  15. Vertigo: a dizzying sensation of tilting within stable surroundings or of being in tilting or spinning surroundings
  16. Chuck, I thought it went, "Red sky at night, delight a sailor." All these years....yeesh! You always write some of my favorite captions! And you truly have a gift when it comes to talking like a pirate. You must be a rock start on National Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day! (September 19 this year, by the way.) Thanks for the great, great, GREAT trip reports!
  17. If the park is open from 9am to 11 pm, that works out to be $6.25 an hour. And when there's fireworks, you get a nice big happy ending. My massage yesterday cost $70 an hour and that's without a happy ending. I think I'll just head to Disneyland next time...
  18. Mr. jamesdillaman, Didn't you read Wes's wonderfully written list on the lifecycle of a coaster installation? It's REQUIRED that we speculate, speculate, speculate, and then build this thing up to be the Second Coming, only to rip it to shreds once the announcement is made? Hell-OOO! You're asking WAY too much for us to be rational and keep our expectations in check. (Wes, I couldn't find that list. It seriously needs re-posting in all its glory!)
  19. Hey Norman, Thanks for creating this! It's incredibly giving of you and your time. I know I appreciate all the answers. My question: Do you (or someone else) ever get a chance to advise clients on 'best practices' when designing a coaster? I guess my question stems from some 'interesting' installations that I think weren't thought out completely. Like 'Led Zepplin' at Hard Rock Park. There is simply no reason whatsoever to have a mid-course brake on that thing. (In my opnion, of course.) Even big parks stack trains. If I were a designer, I would have told them NOT to have a MCB. Save the money for something else. Just run two trains. You'll hardly ever need to run three. So, basically, I was wondering if the designers make any recommendations to the clients before they sign on the dotted line?
  20. Here's the current rehab schedule: It’s A Small World – Closed through November 2008 Mark Twain – 8/25/08-8/27/08 Haunted Mansion – 9/8/08–9/25/08 *TOTALLY subject to change without notice. But that doesn't mean Fantasmic won't be on a limited schedule during your visit.
