  1. Awww! That's so cute, it nearly brought a tear to my eyes! I'm so happy for you guys! =D
  2. I was a little worried that they might have changed Monster Plantation too much, but it looks AMAZING! Thanks for the video!!! I'll be headed that way in a few weeks!
  3. ^I agree with you completely however, I will throw in that Adam has been doing theatrical stuff since the age of ten. He even was the understudy for Fiyero in Wicked. Nowadays, it's very very very difficult to do something like that without amazing vocal training. So he does have training, but I guess he was just trying the "screaming" to do something new...and at any rate I love it. Try singing notes that high w/o screaming. It's hard to hit notes like that without using falsetto; kudos to him! I still think Kris is also amazing, but his type of music has been done before and I like Adam more because it's something "new".
  4. On a different note, I LOVE the idea for the Ole South USA park. I hope that gets built!
  5. My music preferences change every other day. However...recently I've been listening to The Cab or Jack's Mannequin.
  6. I say get both! I used to wear glasses all the time, but then I got contacts. Now, I just wear both of them depending on what I'm wearing.
  7. I came to Holiday World two days after you. I had never been before and the Raven was great. The Legend was closed for the first part of the day, but when I rode it I liked it, it had good laterals and stuff. However, The Voyage...it does have GREAT airtime, laterals, speed, everything that makes a great ride, but it was so rough I rode it twice and had a back ache. I'm sort of torn between IT WAS AMAZING and OMG, OW, IT HURTS SO MUCH. That's just my two cents!
  8. ^I went a couple of days ago and it was AWESOME! But yes, it was squealing like crazy.
  9. Sort of new! I also put it as my profile picture! Here's a pic my friend took but i cropped.
  10. I did too! Haha, I was reading the first part of this thread thinking "wait...WHAT?" But anywho, that is a pretty stupid rule IMO.
  11. I got the results back from my presentation yesterday... and I made a 99!!!!!!! It counts as 6 major grades, yay!
  12. It's not a class. Basically at my school for our senior year, we have to do a HUGE project in English. Everybody can choose a different topic that involves different careers or community service. Throughout this semester we've written a 10+ page research paper, narrative essay, etc. etc.... But, with the topic you choose, you have to have a product. That's where my roller coaster comes in. Tomorrow we present our product and everything to a panel of judges and it will count as six major grades. So...here's the finished product! By the way, I had to go with plan B. A working model would have cost me a lot more over my budget.
  13. They were used to hold down the supports I had to reglue to the base. Yeah, I got some graphite powder stuff...and I'll be sure to have plenty of slack with the wheels and stuff. OMG, YES! Tell me if you guys like this...the station will basically be a simple open air station with a curved roof and then the que line will be between the last turn/station/straight bit of track after the loop. Then, the entrance to the ride will be in the arch support for the loop. Here's a pic... However...the actual thing will be MUCH more detailed. That's just to show the layout of where stuff will go. Anyway, I just want to thank you guys for all of your support! I probably wouldn't be nearly as motivated if it wasn't for doing all of these updates. Oh, and does anybody want to make up a name for the ride?
  14. **Update!* All of the track is finished except like...half of the last turn.
  15. My ideas for the train... I have a rectangular piece of steel that's about an inch wide and it's hollow. I'll cut it into 6 pieces that are an inch long. Into each of the inch long sections, I'll cut grooves into each side that are 1/4 of an inch wide. From there, I will slide my wheels into the groove and weld the axle to the rectangular piece. For my wheels, my papaw was a tool and die maker, and he has some tools I can use. All I have to do is cut a half inch rod of steel into 1/4 inch sections and then drill a 1/16 hole in the middle. For the car...I'll have two cars. They'll be sort of boxy, but I'll make a pointy nose for the front car and have them all decorated. Then, I'll make little seats that are basically L shaped and then I'll add lap bars using the wire I used for the cross ties. That's about it! train.bmp
  16. I really like the setting of Cougar and its layout. Keep up the good work!
  17. *sort of Update* I fixed the loop and I'm waiting on glue to dry so I can continue putting on track. It's nice and smooth!
  18. Elvis was actually born in Tupelo, MS. He moved when he was like...12 or something. (That's the house he was born in.) I'm not trying to be rude or anything...but I live in Tupelo and every time we hear somebody say Elvis was born in Memphis we say NOOO he wasn't!
  19. That's happened to me before too. I just emailed them and asked for a new one and they gave it to me.
  20. ^I couldn't really figure out how to do that so I just made it unbanked. The first drop seriously reminds me of an unbanked drop on RCT.
  21. **(kind of mini) UPDATE** I've been working on the other side of the track up to the bottom of the first drop where I'll have to adjust the supports. My fingers are purple from dealing with all those little piecies...not sure if it's from the paint rubbing off or if they're actually bruised! the entire thing so far the drop from above the lift hill and drop the lift hill
  22. It's actually really sturdy in real life. Yeah, I'm going to move a few supports so that the track will flow better. Especially at the bottom of the loop. ::edit:: I hate to say it, but in the event it *doesn't* work, I have an alternative plan for how I can present it. In the proposal for our project I said I would make a model but I never said if it would be working or not so....If it doesn't work I'll have little cards explaining the physics on the track...if it does work, I'll keep my original plan!
  23. **UPDATE** I've started working on the track, and it's going pretty good. I'll need to modifty a few supports to make the track just right. I have one rail on so far! The entire thing so far. The track in the station. The rails will be blue also.
