  1. Does this count? https://rcdb.com/189.htm I known it was made by Intamin but B&M designed this POS when they used to work for Intamin. If not then Rougarou when it was Mantis, basically a less refined version of Green Lantern.
  2. Is going to Canada really a problem for most WNY’ers? I feel like most people with kids/adventurists who would even contemplate going to another park can and already do go to Canada quite often. I also wouldn’t call two-two and a half hours far away. I think it’s fair to say Canada’s Wonderland is Darien’s regional competitor, or at least where standards and targets should be set. It can be, I remember when we went to CW in 05 and it took us 5 hours to get there due to the border and Toronto's awful traffic.
  3. Staffing, poor training, and poor maintenance are your answers.
  4. Hopefully they are trying to fix that awful train. I dont see any other reason for it to be gone so long, last year they got Goliath opened by Memorial Day.
  5. Looks like some maintenance employee backed his truck into it. Also Ka has always been a rusty hunk of garbage, I swear they used trash Chinese steel
  6. To be fair ROS was opened in 1999. Computer tech has advanced massively since. Also I hope SF brings back two trains to everything that can support two and gets new trains for Mind Eraser along with a rebrand (Riddler would be fine IMO).
  7. What on earth is that? Those side bars look like an elephants ear!
  8. What are the requirements for how large a rider can be on Ride of Steel? I know for Superman: RoS at SFA, they have a test seat to see if a larger person can fit. Also, because of the restraints used (t-bar?), the height limit of the rider is 76 inches (6-4) Over 270 pounds you can forget it. At that weight I barely fit on Superman the Ride which is more accommodating than ROS. However, it is more accommodating now than when it was with those idiotic shin guards.
  9. That is Coaster Through the Clouds at a Wanda Park in Xinjian China. Those are Intamins newest restraints, they also feature them on their new 10 inversion coasters. Also THANK GOD those things are gone! When did they remove them? I thought the awful state of NY required them like Mass does.
  10. Same, Id prefer something like this: The reason I hate those lapbars is the stupid useless shin guard.
  11. Sadly I think that requires new trains because the reason Darien Lake went to one train operation was to harvest parts from the old second train (what do expect from the company that bankrupt SF when they owned it). Not that I would mind, ROS lapbars are awful (very cramped) and Mind Eraser and Viper can both benefit from Vekoma vest restraints
  12. Thank the corrupt Brazilian Workers Party and Dilma Rousseff for crashing the Brazilian economy
  13. SF passes are extremely cheap and since they regularly offer a free upgrade to gold if you buy a regular pass the cost of parking alone makes the pass pay for itself in 2 visits. Not only that but you get admission to every SF park in the country.
  14. Yes it is and it will definitely not be rebuilt, it was damaged while they were taking it apart in AstroWorld if anything SF will scrap that hunk of junk. Also IMO good news SF is back in control again, I can definitely see them bringing two trains back for most rides and the retheme of many such as ROS being rethemed back to Superman and the potential that Mind Eraser will get new trains and become the Riddler like they did with the one at SFNE. No, it is not. They removed it last year. That land is now just a fenced off property across the street with nothing in it. I do agree that they will likely try to rebrand whatever they can at some point, RoS would be an easy fix but otherwise who knows what they’re thinking. Then again, the deal isn’t final until sometime in June so for now we don’t know really anything about what’s truly going on Ah didnt know that, glad to see its finally gone. I rode the one at La Ronde and it was one of the worst coasters I have ever ridden.

  16. As someone in NY this is good news for me, I now have 4 Six Flags parks within driving distance. Also I think Darien Lake will benefit greatly being apart of SF again, ever since it was sold off it has kind of had a run down feel to it.
  17. Just so you know I would swap Seabreeze and Darien Lake, this is because Seabreeze is in Rochester which is a two hour drive from Buffalo with no traffic where as Darien Lake is only around a 50 min drive. Also unless you want to check out Lake George you can easily do TGE in a half a day and then drive 2 and a half hours to Agawam, this is my local park and the crowds all tend to go towards the water park leaving the dry area mostly empty.
  18. ^ Thats not a Golden Horse, thats a Hebei Zhongye Metallurgical Equipment Manufacturing who somehow manages to make even worse knockoffs than Golden Horse.
  19. Only Golden Horse could make a B&M Dive Machine with Intamin dual spine track -_-. Also that 11 inversion coaster looks like it will be rough as hell
  20. Cedar Fair is not looking at buying new parks however what would be funny is if Six Flags re bought this park as they are looking for new ones. It would be good for me as if SF owned Darien Lake I would take a trip out there every so often instead of now where I haven't been in over 13 years
  21. All I hope is this doesn't lead to one train operation or stupid headrests being added
  22. ^ That actually isnt a custom SLC it is their Shenlin layout which is featured on one other SLC Snow Mountain Flying Dragon at Happy Valley Shenzhen. The only custom SLC is Odyssey at Fantasy Island (Great Nor'easter technically counts but it only has a slightly different layout from the standard SLC)
  23. ^ People were worried due to it having a MCBR and that CP would trim it to death there to save money on maintenance. In fact the only other RMC to have a MCBR is NTAG
  24. To be honest TGE isnt even that bad, sure the rides arent that great but it has alot of charm that the other SF parks have gotten rid of. Really all its missing is another decent coaster to along with the Comet. Also the season passes there are alot cheaper than at SFNE and SFGADV both of which are within day trip driving distance from Albany.
