  1. The whole article is here, but below is the first sentence, which is really all you need since there's not much more in the article. "United Arab Emirate-based Al Ahli Group and Marvel Entertainment, Inc. announced today a partnership that will bring Marvel's full library of Super Heroes -- including Spider-Man, Iron Man, The X-Men, Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer -- to Dubai for a major new theme park destination being developed by AAG." Sadly, there's no details or concept art, but it sounds like it could be an exciting project.
  2. If I were to give this coaster an RCT rating, I guess (from pics and vids) that it would get a High for excitement (proximity to buildings, theming, and music), a Medium for intensity (nice air, but nothing severe), and a Low for nausea. My RCT peeps would be running to it (and so would I). Congrats to USJ for spending the extra cash to make it unique and interesting. LOVE the shooting star effect!
  3. Here's a link to some of the concept art: http://www.disneytheque.com/index.php?/archives/76-Space-Mountain-Relaunch.html Looks neato.
  4. The only site I know of that posts attractions scripts for the Country Bears is here. Unfortunately, the Vacation show is only partially complete. Guess you'll just need to listen to it and write down the words. And by the way, I LOVED that show, too.
  5. Disneyland : Main Street : Emporium: Stock Room : AM shift. What a blast! Loved working in the quiet mornings unloading all the plush. Also got to captain a canoe for the races! BEST TIME, like, EVAR!!!
  6. VERY enjoyable! LOVED when he disappeared from the coaster. Nicely scripted! I love the off-season for this very reason--cool, weird, funny videos. Nice job.
  7. To be honest, I'm all for the re-theming of Tom Sawyer's Island. Yes, yes, there's a certain corporate mentality pushing for the change (see the MiceAge article), but in this case, I like the general idea. Opinion 1: People love pirates. Kids, adults, teenagers. There's a certain mystique about them. Treasure hunters and pleasure seekers--the ultimate bad boys. Arrrrrr! And now put that whole thing on an island! Double Arrrrrr! Opinion 2: Tom Sawyer Island is one of those places that Disney fans absolutely adore because it begs to be explored, like New Orleans Square or Snow White's Grotto, or the dragon's cave at DLP. A re-theming won't diminish that. (At least, I hope not. If I have to enter or exit through a gift shop somewhere, I'm gonna verbally torch the place. Arrrrr!) Opinion 3: It was in need of an update. No denying it. And if more people can enjoy it, then Arrrrrr! Opinion 4: I look at it like the new PotC. The Imagineers would probably love to 'plus' this area. The possibilities make me scream, "Arrrrrr!" Opinion 5: Not sure exactly how the theming works with the Rivers of America and the Mark Twain. I'd love to see some concept art...
  8. BEST CAPTION EVER!! (My boss actually came into my office to see why I was laughing so hard.)
  9. Back row Medusa West. I just don't get anything out of curved drops. I like to feel floaty.
  10. It looks like a coal-mining rig that conveys coal from the ground to load onto the passing choo-choo train. Not that that will really happen, but it's a nice detail.
  11. Just a crazy thought, that's all. The quest for answers continues...
  12. How many launch sections would it require to hold the record for most launches on a coaster? 3?
  13. Totally agree with ^. Best. Caption. Ever. And worth repeating.
  14. Very up and down-ey! HA!! LOL! Glad you had a good time. Loved the captions. Good captions are the key to good TRs.
  15. "Hope you didn't have your heart set on having children someday. Enjoy your ride on Mantis."
  16. "Put two and two together." Like maybe two rails with two rails. A 4th dimension coaster is a possibility with that kind of clue.
  17. The Boardwalk has been my favorite so far. It had an incredible balcony with views of the Beach and Yacht (partial) and Epcot. Seems like we could have thrown a rock and hit the Eiffel Tower. We really loved walking to Epcot in the morning for breakfast in World Showcase and taking the boat (or path) to the Studios. And with so many other resorts within walking distance (and Epcot), the restaurant choices can't be beat. Location, location, location! The only negative with The Broadwalk is that it's always last on the bus route. You gotta hit the Swan, Dolphin, Yacht, and Beach before the final stop. That got a little tiring. Although, if you are staying at The Boardwalk on the south side, just get off at the Swan and walk over the bridge. It'll save you 15 minutes.
  18. How fun!! I remember making a wooden coaster with balsa wood and hot glue for a school project. I think the theme of the project was to create a "model" of your life. I told the teacher the coaster represented the ups and downs in life. She totally bought it--the silly little thing. I just wanted to make a coaster.
  19. What's the latest time someone can arrive for the campout? Or is five o'clock the start AND end time for campout entry?
  20. Like many others here, I've been impressed with Six Flags for using their website to post current construction pics. It's a great feature. When I saw the first lifthill photo, I did something I've never done before: I called Six Flags and thanked them. (Yeah, I know, I'm like some perverted coaster stalker.) And I actually talked to the nice lady/girl/gal/chick who gets to go out to the site and take the pictures. She seemed very appreciative of the feedback (and I'm hoping we get LOTS and LOTS of updates because she thinks hot coaster studs like me are viewing her marvelous photos. )
