  1. Haha I've been counting down on my Facebook page since 40 days out....I think my friends think I'm crazy...but I never denied it...
  2. Saw this a couple weeks ago: From http://eatsblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2011/04/in-n-out-watch.html EDIT: I went to their Facebook page, and this was posted today:
  3. You know, it took me this long to figure out why it's so low in quality....it's not even a download of the clip, it's a recording of the screen playing the clip! D'oh! Why didn't I realize this sooner? EDIT: that being said, I still watch it over and over in excitement!
  4. You know, given all indicators, it doesn't look like they're putting railing/catwalk up the left side of the lift hill. Gotta say, this makes the left side of the train so much cooler to me...
  5. You tug really hard... Anyway, if anyone wants to go, im down for it!
  6. No kidding! I hear you there! There's only so much whack-a-troll that a person can take in a day!
  7. ^^^ same....would be cool if the TPR page set up events on Facebook, to share and talk about.
  8. Yes, this is the same video footage, just instead of screaming riders, we have techno for the audio. (for what it's worth, the audio ended when the video switched to the reverse POV on-train shots, cause they used cameras without mics for that part) It was all raw sound. From what I understand, they had mics set up on the train to record that they were planning to use for the "real" sound anyway... Also the quality is definitely inferior to the original post.
  9. I'm SO down for that if it happens! (assuming it equals or beats the $10 season passholder discount...)
  10. RiverWalk is pretty amazing, agreed. In that area, there's also a Ripley's Odditorium, and a Wax museum...I believe it's Madam Tussad's ...if you're into that...
  11. Have gotta love the internet...once you post something, you can never shut it down...they added music to the youtube version....
  12. Thanks for the link! Reminds me why I am so excited about this ride! The video also shows the lap bars and saddle horns quite nicely!
  13. huh. I must be the luckiest guy on earth, cause the (albiet only) 2 times I've been though, I've only had to deal with "more cars" but no stopping...*knock on wood*
  14. Living in Waco, between DFW and Austin, I usually drive about 75-80 going up to DFW, and get there in about 1-1.5 hours, assuming I don't hit rush hour traffic. (I may be wrong, but as long as it's not between 7-9 AM or 4-8PM traffic isn't awful) and about 2 hours going to Austin going pretty much 80 the entire way. (It's easier to speed going south, I don't know why...) Anyway, assuming that you go that fast, that's 3.5 hours from DFW to Austin. I always go straight through Austin when going to San Antonio, and plan for a 3.5 hour trip, (going 80) but usually get there early. Hope that helps some!
  15. Don't hold me responsible if I'm wrong, but I want to say yes because I believe the only difference between a season pass and play pass at SFOT is that you don't get the coupon book with the play pass. -Jake That, and season passholders have more exclusives like ERT weekends and whatnot.
  16. Assless chaps. Like David Lee Roth used to wear. Guy "Count me in!" Koepp hehe, let me make you feel old: I had to look up who that was. Yup. Now, in my defense, I did know who Van Halen was prior to the googleing, just to be clear!
  17. Creeper Haha! Only a little? You know the GP will be trippin though!
  18. Well, no matter which train(s) they run, and barring any calamities, we've only got a month of waiting until the rest of the GP discovers how much fun this new ride is! I'm totally planning on hanging out for a while near the exit, just to listen to people's reactions!
  19. worth noting: this is not a coaster, but one of the small trains you see at zoos and parks everywhere...
  20. Well, considering the first test run ever, and the first full-train test were both on the teal one, I'm willing to bet that it's probably done most/all of it's needed runs, just in testing things like the rider clearance envelope/window (Noob question: What is it actually called, anyway?) That just leaves the black train. Hmmm...I wonder if they're going to get named, nick-named, numbered, or just called by color? I always thought nicknames gave coaster trains a bit more of a personality...but that's just me...
  21. hehehe all you would have needed to do was scroll down the page a touch further. Additional reading on the topic: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=58486 This reminds me of something mentioned much earlier in this thread. SFOT still needs an official thread....
  22. well, I finally wander over here... I am webgoof, AKA Seth. 22, currently living in TX, close to DFW. My first Theme Park/coaster experience was the fall of 2007 when I flew to CA to visit a friend, and we went to Disneyland. I rode Big Thunder Mountain, then Space Mountain. First time on Space Mountain, I screamed in pure terror the entire time. The whole train nearly died of laughter. Since then, I've been to California Adventure, Magic Mountain, and SFOT. Not much experience yet, but I fully intend to change that.
