  1. A friend of mine told me this one, but he said he overheard a\this conversation in line for Log Jammer at Kennywood after they cut down the trees in between it and Racer. "Hey, did you notice this area looks more open? Do you know why?" "no." "well, I saw on the news that they picked up the ride and moved it over 20 feet!" "Really? Why would they do that?" "I don't know, but it sure makes this area look better!" Yes, they really thought that Kennywood had moved the Log Jammer over 20 feet

  2. Me and my friend Micheal have created a roller coaster this year for the Cedar Point great thrill ride Build off this year just like we did last year. I noticed that another member posted their coaster on this site, and I thought you should get our perspective too. Last year, we also won (we had the suspended one) and we had a great time a Cedar Point, and when they added a first place we decided to try to get first place. Our coaster this year is called Project CP As you can see, our coaster is smaller than the other member's "mythos". Although we have the capacity to build one of his or her magnitude, we decided against it because we knew how hard it is to transport to Cedar Point. We also had to switch to the micro pieces for the same reason. Our goal was actually to have it fit through a doorway! We based the roller coaster with some mixed elements of B&M's new wing rider, as well as their older coaster types. We also tried to make it realistic by using supports that are actually tubes, like on a modern steel coaster. These are more complicated to make than you think. We even had cat walks and a tension wheel to help control the chain. We obviously went for realism. I am not asking you to vote for us, but to vote for your favorite, but I do ask you to consider ours, because we think it is quite impressive.
