  1. I was wondering how long it would be before Doomsday showed up in the theme park world. We didn't see any Superman villains until the Bizarro coasters in 2009 and then again with Lex Luthor, but Doomsday was always one that I wanted to see.
  2. I think it would be cool to replace it with a RMC coaster similar to Goliath called "Steel Thunder" or "Iron Thunder". Obviously, all white because that would look absolutely fantastic on the Iron Horse track.
  3. I always go straight to El Toro, then Bizarro, then Kingda Ka, then Nitro. After that it's really whatever you want to do. Just remember that Green Lantern and Superman will always have long lines until the end of the day about an hour before closing. As long as you are wise with wait times you will be able to get on everything.
  4. I don't have a problem with it being put on Kingda Ka. It will be awesome to be up high and see Kingda Ka launching towards you.
  5. 1. Helix 2. Zumamjaro: Drop of Doom 3. Banshee 4. Goliath 5. Medusa Steel Coaster I based my list off of attractions that are the best for the park. Great Adventure really needed a drop tower, which is why I put it up higher than Goliath and Medusa.
  6. GCI has the skills required to replace Rolling Thunder with something the family can actually enjoy. How about a white GCI?
  7. They should have made the rails the lime green color that Medusa at SFDK is painted.
  8. The point is that Rolling Thunder is much older and outdated compared to the new generation of coasters and rides that we have now. In 1979 there were no 415ft drop towers mounted on 456ft tall roller coasters. Rolling Thunder was a top notch ride when it opened and now its time for it to retire so that the new generation of rides can take over.
  9. I always disliked Rolling Thunder, but this year it was running much better than usual. I enjoyed it a lot this year actually. Although it sucks to see it go, the amount of potential they have with this removal is huge and I really hope they don't block themselves in by adding a dead end coaster station and queue somewhere.
  10. Great Adventure, beating out height records by like 20 feet ish since 2005.
  11. I like Green Lantern at SFGAdv. It's forceful, it's fun, and I have never found it painful. Everyone that I go with complains that "It hurts my feet to the point where I can barely walk" which is a bit silly. The forces feel different when they are on your feet and legs, but I have yet to be hurt by it.
  12. Although it makes sense from the hints (This will be sure to "top" everyone's ride list) I think that is very unlikely. Also, it is referred to as a Giga Drop everywhere, but wouldn't it technically be a Strata Drop?
  13. Sasquatch would be a good name. Six Flags has it on the drop towers at Great Escape, plus they have Jack Link's.
  14. We are looking at a kingda ka drop tower. And nobody is confusing Green Lantern and Kingda Ka or Nitro and Batman.
  15. A drop tower mounted on kingda ka. Speaking of which, there are turquoise support beams in the parking lot to kingda ka.
  16. It depends on the ride. Green Lantern and Superman are the two that the employees are usually spot on with. Everything else is always shorter than they say it is.
  17. Hello everyone. This is my first project in a while, and one of the only ones I intend on finishing. With Banshee being announced for King's Island last night, we saw the new (and unexpected) trains that will represent the future of B&M Inverts. Someone's gotta do it first, so why not me? This is only 30 minutes of work, so go easy on me. I know there is still a lot more to do, but I haven't presented anything in a WIP format for a long time and I wanted to be the first one .
  18. I've ridden Kingda Ka in rain before. When we got to the launch area it started slightly drizzling. I mean very slightly, like you would feel 1 drop every 10 seconds. It picked up a little when the launch was initiated and then about 2 seconds after the on-ride photo it turned into a heavy rain. It definitely hurt, not as bad as you would think rain at 130mph would feel, but not too far off. The worst of it was when you first start to ascend. Just head on into rain. I was in the front row but in the second row of seats so I didn't get the worst of it.
  19. It's not a wing coaster. The people who made the fake images already came out and said it's fake.
  20. I'll be there on August 22nd as well. For food and restaurants, there aren't any stand out ones in my opinion, but if you want to play it safe and have some good food, Johnny Rockets is the way to go. If you are able there before opening (I get there like 2 minutes before they open) go straight to El Toro. You will be able to get in at least 3 or 4 rides before a line starts to form. After that hit Kingda Ka. The rest is pretty much up to the lines. Nitro should hold a 30-45 minute line all day, but at night you can get a walk-on. Green Lantern and Superman are going to have a constant 2hr + wait, so wait until night to ride those because then they are only about 20 minutes each. The rest of the coasters will average between 5-30 minutes usually. Bizarro and the Dark Knight having the shortest and Batman usually having about 20 minutes. On to the topic of 2014. I had a cool idea for a Nightwing themed coaster to go where The Chiller once was. Not saying any of it will happen, I just wanted to share my idea. Premier Launched coaster named Nightwing that starts where Chiller was, goes out over Nitro and back. Rename Movietown to Gotham City. There's two things to market now, new coaster and "new" area. You will open up the path around Nightwing to fit in more places to eat, giftshops, and maybe even a flat ride somewhere. The old Batman show building would have to be removed, but that's it. I started to make my layout idea in NoLimits. The track isn't exactly to scale, but it's close. Launch - highspeed turn into - Norwegian Loop - Zero-G Roll - Giant Corkscrew - (To be added: Overbank, airtime hill under the cork, some quick turns, a few bunny hills, and then a turn into the brakes.) If you aren't familiar with Nightwing, he is the original Robin who changes his ways and becomes a hero instead of a sidekick. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11111/111111473/2947942-4304625018-night.png Updated the train concept to feature a better logo. Track would be that light blue color, supports would be black. (sorry for that long post, haha)
