  1. Iron Rattler won my 2 out of 3 coin toss. Honestly, I can't wait to ride both of them.
  2. I had to go Gatekeeper mainly because I will get to ride it this summer. Also, it's not called YOLO.
  3. Different definitions of "overbanked turns" I guess. Back on topic, can't wait to ride this on the TX-MW trip. Every picture posted is jaw dropping.
  4. I thought there were only three on MF. The first turn, one on the island and the one right before the brakes. Am I missing one?
  5. I've signed up for Valleyfair. https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/TimothyNord/Valleyfair2013
  6. Cyclops has the single most extreme airtime moment I have experienced.
  7. Yes, Valleyfair wants to start serving liquor! http://minnesota.publicradio.org/collections/special/columns/polinaut/archive/2013/01/amusement_park.shtml Valleyfair amusement park could move closer to serving alcoholic beverages under legislation introduced today in the Minnesota Senate. The bill would allow the city of Shakopee to issue an on-sale intoxicating liquor license to Cedar Fair Entertainment Co., the Ohio-based company that owns and operates Valleyfair. Sen. Eric Pratt, R-Prior Lake, is the bill's chief author. Pratt said he was collaborating with Rep. Michael Beard, R-Shakopee, and the city to help Valleyfair meet its business plans. "Currently they're restricted from offering that, and we believe that the city of Shakopee should have the right to issue that liquor license if they deem it appropriate," Pratt said. Pratt said he had not been in direct contact with Valleyfair officials and did not know what they have planned after obtaining the liquor license.
  8. I too would like to give it a try once. I think the best case would be to have the first 4 rows forward and the last three backward. During the presentation video they mentioned another surprise would take place when they are converting Batman back to forward, any chance X-Flight will get the Swarm treatment?
  9. So close, Adrian comes up 9 yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson's single season rushing record. Playoff bound though, see you next week Packers. MVPeterson!
  10. I gave up on a B&M Invert at Valleyfair many years ago. I remember reading rumors on the old "Thrillride" website in the late 90's about one being installed.
  11. A couple of my favorites. I don't think they have been mentioned yet. "Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul!" Billy Madison "You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls and those walls need to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it?..." - A Few Good Men. "I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this." - Dumb & Dumber.
  12. 82 yard TD run by All Day. Simply amazing. Is Eric Dickerson getting nervous?
  13. I am 38. First coaster for me was at Paul Bunyan Land in Brainerd, MN. I think it was just name "Roller Coaster". I would guess it was 1979 or 1980 and I was five or six years old.
  14. Yeah, I meant September. I just hate the thought that summer is almost over up here. Going to the MN State Fair tomorrow too.
  15. Just got done with The Newsroom, looking forward to the new seasons of Homeland and Sons of Anarchy.
  16. Hello everyone. My name is Tim and I just decided to sign up after watching this site for some time. My home park is Valleyfair. Up until this July, I had not been on a coaster in about 3-4 years. I thought I had grown out of it, probably because I have few friends that like coasters and I end up going on rides by myself. In July, my niece asked me to take her to VF. We had a lot of fun going on pretty much everything, she was finally old enough to go on everything. In August I went to SFGam with one of my friends that will ride some coasters, but not all. The fire has been lit again. Heck, I'm thinking about jumping in the car and head to WoF this weekend, never been there. I probably won't post a lot on here. I will be keeping my eyes open for upcoming trips and events though.
