    Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

  1. I love the sounds Steel Hawg makes, in a bad kind of way. It’s just so funny to me. When I rode it I had fun standing in line and just watching it for awhile afterwards listening to it go "TSSSCHCSCHCSSCHCSCHCSSSCH…" as the cars went up the lift hill. I like the clunks the brake runs make too.
  2. http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=42658&start=310 Ginzo does not approve! I recommend none of you use any Hit Point calculators if they ever get invented, or you will face his wrath!
  3. One of my friends has this thing he does for fun: Ride certain coasters immediately after eating the challenge ice cream cone. The challenge ice cream is a triple cone with mint chocolate chip, strawberry, and cookies ‘n cream, and so far he’s done it on: -Montu -Top Thrill Dragster -Dragon Mountain -Steel Hawg -Tatsu -Fahrenheit -Griffon He said Fahrenheit and Montu were the ones that affected his ice cream filled stomach the most.
  4. Stealth at Thorpe Park. Stealth has a 205 ft Top Hat with good airtime and a 0-80 mph launch in 2.3 seconds, yet it’s stuck in the borderline tier because of a perceived inferiority to its fellow rocket coasters. Let’s not kid ourselves, any coaster with a hydraulic launch and a Top Hat is automatically going to be measured against those that have the same elements. I am, of course, referring to Storm Runner and Top Thrill Dragster. When it was first built, Stealth spent a fair bit of its time being compared to Storm Runner, which has a superior launch and more airtime on its Top Hat.
  5. Maximum RPM has a top speed of only about 45mph...and it has no loops or anything, so it looks kind of like an Italian Job with a gimmick lift that never seems to work. The name makes it sound like it should be an LIM launch coaster to me.
  6. As we all know, there are so many parks on the east coast of the USA that it's hard to see them all in one trip unless you've got a lot of time and money. Financial troubles kept me from saving up for the TPR 2008 East Coast trip, so I've got two different plans for a trip in 2009. The Lower East Coast Trip includes the following parks: -Dollywood -Hard Rock Park -SFOG -Busch Gardens Europe -Kings Dominion The Upper East Coast Trip includes the following parks: -Dorney Park -Hersheypark -SFGAdv -Knoebels -SFA Both have parks I've never been to, and both have new coasters
  7. El Toro first drop in the back seat - probably the most powerful stomach feeling on a thrill ride ever. IMO it puts even Drop Zone to shame.
  8. Wow you are so lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you see it, getting a transfusion would be difficult if you needed one). Being born with AB- blood is about the same odds a getting a rollback on your first ever Dragster ride. I likes those odds.
  9. The title says it all. I don't know what mine is. It's probably on file somewhere in my medical records, but I've never gotten around to looking it up.
  10. That video of people riding it is from a sneak peek preview Indiana Beach gave this last weekend. The winners of the video contest were the first to ride, as well as some others who were there. The official opening and media day will be sometime later this month. I was lucky enough to be there, and I took pictures of the ride, yet somehow lost the camera. So anyway, I rode the ride. Here's my review: It is kind of like a "Wild Mouse that was forced to evolve by S&S" being that it pulls strong laterals that can be jarring, but all of the elements on the ride are unique and just a l
  11. I once saw this educational video. I can't remember too many details about it, but there was one part of it that stood out in my mind: This plant expert guy was holding parts of a Poison Sumac plant in his gloved hands (for protection) while pointing out the various distinguishable features the plant had, such as its leaf pattern, the appearance of the flowers it has during the summer, etc. Basically a part of the video that showed you how to tell which plant to avoid. But the interesting thing is, at one point the reporter asked, "Can I find this in Jackson, New Jersey?" and he said "
  12. Layout is complete!!! WOW, they sure got it built fast!!!! It looks pretty different from the one in the video, though, I only see one turn banked on the outside, which I believe is the Tip-out. Also, they said it would have three inversions, but I only count two in those pictures (a Dive Loop and a Heartline Roll). I guess the first drop is the third inversion, even though it doesn't really send riders upside-down. It's an opposite-banked 90 degree curve, like an airtime hill sideways. -James "Was mentioned in the press release" Dillaman Really? I kn
  13. One more thing worth mentioning...I've heard some reports of an element featured in this ride called a "Wall Turn". I'm guessing it'll be a 90-degree banked turn or something, but it's very hard to tell at this time with the lack of photos... My first thought was that it would be like this: http://www.rcdb.com/ig2472.htm?picture=8 but I could be wrong.
  14. I'm often thinking about coasters when I jam out to my iPod, so I'd probably just listen to the kind of music I normally listen to...assuming I'm stupid enough to bring something I'm so strongly attached to on a ride and risk losing it. That said, I have a pretty good collection of video game music on my iPod that would be suitable, as quite a bit of it is short length, about the same as a coaster ride. Here would be a few video game songs that I'd listen to depending on the coaster I'm riding: Gerstlauer Eurofighter/Maverick/Fahrenheit: Colossuem Leader battle music from Pokemon
  15. That would be like saying Hollywood Dream looks like it might even be better than Expedition GeForce.
