  1. Only one problem so far on Windows 8 (using an Nokia Lumia 822). I cant upload photos. I can also test it tonight on my old Windows phone 7 if the Taptalk app is available for it.
  2. I'll be there all weekend...heading up tomorrow afternoon. I'm excited to finally ride it.
  3. Well with the ability to pay to skip the lines these days I'd say I wouldn't wait more than 2 hours for anything. I only waited once over an hour this year. It was volcano at KD. I'm not going to pay to skip the lines at any park within 5 hours driving distance. Beside that day at KD the only real line was volcano at about 90 minutes at its peak.
  4. I'm pretty sure it was Great American Scream Machine. I vaguely remember my first visit to Great Adventure in 1993....oh crap its coming back to me as I type! I remember we first went to GASM but the friend I was with made some lame excuse for not wanting to ride it. So we then rode Rolling Thunder follow by....Runaway Mine Train so that was my first. we never did ride GASM that day we rode Batman which i remember having a really long and it broke down a lot. I don't believe it was until 1995 that I was taken to Great Adventure again. I finally got to ride GASM and i loved it until the last ride I took on it. I also could have been taken to Hershey Park first and it might have be Trailblazer, but I doubt it.
  5. Great to see your photos Matt. I really need to start posting my trip reports and photos. I'll finally have some time this week. Although I Haven't decide of I'm going to go to SFNE/Quassy next weekend though.
  6. Man I'd be so freaking happy if they'd somehow managed to get X2 open by Saturday. Especially still I'm not expecting it in anyway. Either way I'm really excited to finally get to Magic Mountain.

  8. Awesome to hear about Zumanjaro, after Lex at SFMM I knew it was only a matter of time before we had a drop ride added to our Intamin. Although couldn't they have given us just a little bit more time to get to go ride Rolling Thunder one last time. I'm in VA for the long weekend and I leave for West Coast Bash on Wednesday...I guess i'll go tonight and skip the Allentown Fair At least they gave us some warning at though...
  9. Well i'll be there the last weekend in August hopefully its open again by then. I find it highly unlikely that it will be that long before its open again.
  10. I agree and i might be able to squeeze under the height limit but it would be close. Although lets be honest here, 6' 1" isn't going to be much of a problem for the locals.
  11. I've been meaning to get to SoCal forever. I might as well before they rebuild Colossus. The dates will work perfectly for myself.
  12. I don't mind if they make more Star Wars or Indy films IF they are GOOD. The 4th Indy film and Episode 1 were TERRIBLE. Episode II and III had their flaws but are watchable. I'm wondering how this will effect of the shell of a company that LucusArts had already become with most of their internal development ending a few years ago.
  13. The title of the thread is "Hurricane Sandy vs. Roller Coasters" so we are talking about roller coasters (and amusement parks). I don't think it really need to be said that everyone is first or foremost thinking about the loss of life (39 people reported so far) that has occurred. How about you NOT be rude and obnoxious towards one of our moderators if you want to continue posting to our forums? Thanks... That wasn't my intent in anyway. I posted my opinion of the damages that have occurred above without mentioning the lost of life that has occurred and I didn't want to sound insensitive to what matters more. I'll tone it down it the future Robb.

  15. I'd have to agree for now but with you but that could change as the Rattler transforms. I will say it's my most anticipated ride of 2013 that i will actually ride next year, but Gatekeeper and whatever Alton Towers builds are a close 2nd and 3rd. I'm worried Gatekeeper will be forceless thought.
  16. Looks like Jane's Carousel is fine, thank god. Jane spent 27 years restoring the carousel it would be a shame after only one year operating if it got ruined. http://gothamist.com/2012/10/30/photos_janes_carousel_looking_a_lot.php#photo-7 It a shame for Casino Pier and Funtown Pier, regardless of the quality of the rides that have been lost. These are businesses and regardless of how much insurance pays them they will have a lot of work ahead of themselves to open next year and it will come at a cost. It look like Mighty Mouse might be a loss and that would suck with Adventure City getting rid Treetop Racers that we will be down to only two Miller Mouses remaining. I have to ask about Star Jet though. Did the ride not age well because when I rode it in it's second year it was really good, intense and smooth.
  17. I don't know how Batwing operates today since i haven't been to Six Flags America in 8 years but back then Batwing's seat would start to raise as they were entering the station.
  18. Batman: The Ride at Six Flags Great Adventure in 1993. The first of 100s if not 1000s of rides I've taken on it. Although that day was the most I ever waited for it. With a full que and many break downs it was well over a 3 hours wait.
  19. ^ I don't disagree that it is a huge vertical loop but height isn't something that really means a lot to me unless your a TTD or KK. I think something like Wooden Warrior has proved that.
  20. I agree you Robb. I don't think Full Throttle will be terrible, but nothing about it really stands out. The reverse launch seems pointless to me and the maximum theoretical capacity per hour is absurd for SFMM. I honestly think with as many coasters as they have, that it will become more difficult for them to build a ride that really stand out to enthusiasts and even the GP. I think they should have done something simple, like breaking the record for most inversions. That stands out and is easy to market. Projekt Helix looks like a twisted mess of fun. Full Throttle look like a simple out and back that has a big loop and its largest drop going straight into the brakes. What a waste of potential.
