  1. I honestly haven't been able to settle on a top ten, but here's where I stand at the moment: 1. Fury 325 2. El Toro 3. Maverick 4. Storm Chaser 5. Xcelerator 6. Storm Runner 7. The Voyage 8. Diamondback 9. The Legend 10. X2 Honorable mention goes to Gravity Max, which was infinitely more exciting than any of the dive coasters I've been on. List out of 180 creds.
  2. Went to my first West Coast Bash yesterday and absolutely loved it! The park was absolutely dead by the end of late night ERT, so I managed to get a ride on Xcelerator with a train completely to myself. Such an unreal experience. Also won a piece of track from Silver Bullet at lunch, which I still can't get over. Such an awesome souvenir. Thanks for planning such an awesome event, Robb!
  3. Just got back from my first visit to the park after moving to SCV this month! It's a gross, dirty place, and it has some of the worst operations I've ever seen, but that ride on X2 at sunset made the whole day worth it. I felt like a rag doll in the best possible way. The last raven turn has a death rattle but I don't think I've ever had more fun on a coaster in my life!
  4. Wow! This is my favorite announcement of the day. Looks like it's going to be absolutely nuts.
  5. I waited 7 hours to ride Firehawk on opening day in 2007. Imagine my disappointment.
  6. Visited the park on a whim today (thanks in part to $10[!] tickets from Kroger), and I stumbled upon a very long and straight construction zone on the walk to Storm Chaser. On the way out, I noticed a blast from the past laying in wait. Welcome back, old friend. Tentatively.
  7. Plus GG is local! Headquarters is on Vine Street in Cincinnati, just 30 minutes from the park. Think of all the spin they could put on that. That said, the curved drop is a major weakness in any argument against it being a GCI.
  8. Noticed this support slacking on the job while in line for The Legend yesterday. The only reason I saw it was because The Legend was at one point the only coaster operating and I had been stuck in line for quite some time, but that's a different story and it's over now. Anyway, hope this isn't a big deal.
  9. Banshee continues to baffle me. On opening day last year, the line was over 8 hours long, but otherwise I've never waited more than 30 minutes for it. Usually it's a walk-on, 15 minutes at most. The thing's a capacity monster.
  10. My backyard coaster would be a 100' GCI woodie, nothing special, a few drops, a couple crossovers, maybe some airtime. I just love the ride experience on GCI coasters in general. As far as flat rides go, I'm fairly inexperienced, but I think I'd go with a HUSS Giant Frisbee.
  11. I'm curious as to why you hated Firehawk so much! It's by no means the best ride in the park, but it has never caused me any Vortex-grade pain, and the GP seems to love it.
  12. I'm not a fan of the Lazy Name Plus Height habit that Cedar Fair has developed when naming coasters lately, but apart from the name, this ride looks incredible.
  13. I'm curious about this pass situation. Do gold/platinum passes not work for Haunt dates at Knott's? Because as far as I know, pass holders can get into Haunt at any of the other Cedar Fair parks without having to buy a special ticket.
  14. Alas, this hint seems to bash us over the head with disappointment while screaming "Wing rider, wing rider, wing rider!"
  15. The Storm is such a lazy name, though. It sounds like something I would have built in Roller Coaster Tycoon in fifth grade. Sure, it works, but I hope the park is more creative than that.
