  1. I have a few pleasant surprises:


    Wildcat @ Lake Compounce. I didn't LOVE this coaster, but I fancied it as old and rickity. It was actually quite fun and not insanely rough!

    Tennessee Tornado @ Dollywood. Arrow loopers scare me away (Anaconda and Drachen FIre are my only two comparisons) and I was very pleased with the Tornado!

    Magnum @ CP. Plenty of Gs, a beautiful view and a nostalgic feel really blew me away.

    Verbolten @ BGW. I really enjoyed the ride overall. I was expecting a family ride, but it packed quite a punch!


    I only have two unpleasant surprise, however.

    ROAR @ SFA. Being a GCI/CCI fanboy, I was disappointed by the use of PTC trains on this coaster. It was rough, unimaginative and I did not return.

    Cyclone @ SFNE. A best for sure, but after a long downtime wait I was in both emotional and physical pain. No bueno.

  2. I noticed a few "bugs". If I swipe my finger to the left during the "Pick your question pack" section and tap the first pack it still asks if I want to buy the other pack (if that makes sense). The questions are not as random as I would like. I often get a question after 2 others and have gotten the same question twice in a row. As you said, there are one or two spelling errors.


    Some things I like:

    Easy, fun and very rewarding.

    Love the style and layout.

    There is a very wide variety of time periods, types of questions, regions etc.


    Some things I do not like:

    Randomization of questions

    Why don't I get to see the correct answer after I miss my 4th question?

    There are a few pictures that are completely impossible to identify. I believe one is SUPPOSED to be The Beast but I can't tell at all (It's a lift hill with the sun behind it at sundown)


    I love the app, great work Robb and I cannot wait for the update!!!

  3. The only thing that turns me off from Valley Fair! is the fact that they already have a massive lime green coaster. From a design perspective, why would you ask for a similar color scheme for your new coaster? Furthermore, Cedar Point seems like the most likely customer here. Maybe Cedar Fair's new president saw the missed opportunity of the Flying coasters and wants to snatch up this prospect?

  4. Hey all. I am shooting for a long distance trip for summer 2013. I know it's a little far off, but I need a quick opinion here. I love wooden coasters, and I am looking for a park where it's bigger attraction is a quality woodie. I have been to SFGAdv, Lake Compounce, Dollywood, KD, Carowinds, BGW, SFA, SFoT, SFDK, CP, Hershey Park and Dorney Park so I would like to keep those out of the mix. I am mainly looking at three parks: Knoebels, Holiday World and Mt. Olympus. This question is certainly open to everyone, but I would highly appreciate opinions from those who have traveled to more then a few parks for some solid comparisons. Thanks so much!
