  1. Hey everybody, some of my friends and I (four of us all together) are going to be taking a trip to Cedar Point sometime soon, probably in June. We want to be able to do everything though as we live far away and will probably not be back. Does anybody have any tips for how we should ensure ourselves the chance to ride everything, or places to stay, or times to go? Any help would be appreciated, thank you very much.

  2. Hi everybody! I'm going into my senior year of high school, so of course that means I'm looking at colleges. I'm wondering if anyone here as gone to Georgia Tech? It's near the top of my list, but I'd like to ask some people some more questions if that's possible. I can PM whomever if needed.


    I'd be going into engineering if that makes a difference, probably civil.



  3. I have a quick question, I'm sorry if it's been asked before.


    How long does it take take a Bag of Crap to come? I won one in the end of September. I don't mean to sound greedy or anything, so I'm sorry if it seems like it. I'm just wondering if I should still be looking for it and I'm seeing that people that won theirs in later months are getting them. Once again I don't mean to sound mad or anything, I think it's a great idea to do these bags of crap in the first place and I'm very thankful to Robb and Elissa for doing this.

  4. Submitted! Here's my ballot. I'm extremely interested where Skyrush will end up this year after disappointment in the Golden Ticket list.

  5. I'm still a little worried - are those pre-determined "plots" always going to be there? They don't even seem to make much sense here because the castle is built both on and off of the plot.


    I thought the same at first but then realized it is probably plots they placed. Who knows, maybe these plots can be moved and scaled!


    If some haven't noticed, you are seeing their same 'demo' park in their videos. We will have a clearer idea when we see a demo on paths and such being laid out.


    This is exactly what I would like to see: an open area that has had no work at all done on it. No trees placed, paths placed, or land terra-formed. I'd like to see what we're starting out with when we open up a blank map. Or at least a corner of this map that they haven't developed yet.

  6. One question I did have, by the looks of the blank map, are there going to be 'pre-chosen' spots where we can place a station and are the paths fixed (as in can't reposition them, remove them, etc)? It made me wonder when I saw several cement pads in which one of them was occupied for the coaster.

    I am wondering the same thing, especially because it looks like that station looked almost exactly like the one in the other video.

  7. The two most important things for me are that people are able to ride your coaster (like the RCT series) and that some amount of scenery/building is able to be done. Like making buildings/stations/queue lines/foliage. One of my favorite things about RCT was that you would be able to make the station and design the actual scenery all around the ride. The building of the ride was cool too though .

  9. My bigger issue I have with the John Ivers coasters is the lack of a legitimate operating schedule. If you have find the owner to schedule a ride I don't count is as a credit. If the coasters were open to the public every fourth Sunday of the month from June-August from 10AM-11AM, yeah then I would count it.


    That is a good point, so I'm guessing you wouldn't count this coaster?


    This is the only backyard coaster I would count...

    Some guy bought this B. A. Schiff coaster off ebay

    Yupp, he also put his dog on it

  10. These are probably the only backyard coasters I would count.




    I would definitely count these as credits, because it is clear that time and effort went into making them. They didn't just lay down some "2x4s and put a shopping cart on them" (which is definitely not a credit). They probably put a lot of engineering in this ride, so I think it should be considered "legit."



    This is considered a credit on RCDB, so I would definitely count the two coasters above. More work went into making the coasters above (or at least the first one) than was put into this Miner Mike. So what if it's not "published," if you make beer in your backyard, it's still beer even if you don't try officially make it a business. It will definitely not be quality beer, but it will be beer nevertheless. (I'm not saying roller coasters are like beer either, two different things.) If some boardwalk were to purchase one of the rides above and put it on their boardwalk, would you call it a credit then? Nothing has changed about it, just it's location.


    This is just my two cents on it, not meant to offend anybody.
