  1. Okay, lets think about this. What stupid record will MM go after with this? First wooden Coaster with three lift hills? First wooden coaster with a launch? Largest loop on a wooden coaster to match their record for the loop on YOLO? This should be good!
  2. I see your points. I agree with the fact that it doesn't seem to offer much from a point of view, however it is all about the way it rides. Think each and every element of the coaster is probably going to be powerful, I'd rather have 6 powerful elements, as on Goliath, than some good some boring elements. Well said my friend
  3. Am I the only one that thinks people are going to be disappointed? Gosh I hope I'm wrong but I think most people's hype is based off the big drop and zero G. Doesn't seem to be much substance other than that. Sorry, I am being a negative nellie!
  4. Ugh and my original play was to go today but went Sat and Mon instead. Typical bad luck, oh well good for the people who are there walking on every ride Thats not bad luck, thats more of poor decision making! Tuesdays are always less crowded unless there is some sort of school related day.
  5. Wow, I feel sorry for the hard working educators that work their butts off for low pay and National Standardized tests that determine their level of effectiveness. I'm sure they all appreciate your level of support. Sounds like great parents and leaders on this site! lmao Most of your children are not Einstein or Twains. Lets be honest.
  6. ^Gotta start saving money for the next mediocre coaster they will be building. Maybe grab the record for steepest drop as they build a screaming squirrel. Sounds about right for the mountain. IMHO
  7. Gizmo just moved Banshee further down his inverted coaster rankings because of the rattling. That along with the fact it's in Ohio
  8. Actually I'm kind of one of those that doesn't fully believe SFMM can be as bad as people really say (as I haven't been there). Maybe all I need is a visit to change my opinion It is that bad. The reputation is true. Just saying. Now for the other SF Parks I don't have near the issue.
  9. Ive ridden in every row and found 3-1 and 6-4 to be my favorite seats. However we ended up in row 4 once yesterday and I felt like I was inside a paint mixer for a few minutes. Was pretty disappointing. Im just glad the coaster rattling in the back is mostly gone. 1, 8, 6, and 3 are smooth as silk. Both of these posts are funny to me! lol
  10. ^ I agree with Green Lantern. Wont ride it again. I don't like many of the corkscrew coasters either such as the one at CP. The only cool thing about that ride is w asking under the corkscrews!
  11. When I walk into a very clean park with several 25 million dollar plus rides and lots of fairly happy employees, I don't think walmart. When I am paying $8 for fries and $35 for a sweatshirt, I do not think Walmart. Have you ever worked for either Walmart or Six Flags? If so, I would love to hear some real reasons why Six Flags is anything like walmart in anyway shape or form. Honestly, how much more complex of a lighting package do you need on the ride? Top Thrill Dragster has essentially the same exact thing and I have never heard any complaints. There are homes within 10 feet of the park's borders and an airport a few miles away. I doubt either of those would really appreciate a thousand lights on a 456ft tall structure. There is a difference between practical and cheap. If a single spotlight is all you need to do the trick, than I wouldn't call having just that "cheaping out". I don't understand all of the sudden Gadv hate. Yeah, the park is going through some growing pains rights now and has some weird dead ends, but in reality its got one the best collections of rides out there and a fairly nice atmosphere. Golden Kingdom and PDC are two of the nicest areas in any Six Flags or Cedar Fair parks out there. Both cost a fortune and nobody wants to bring them up when comparing the park to Walmart. End rant. GADV is a nice park and I'd take it any day over the punk filled dump in Valencia California. Six Flags needs to spend a little more on GADV rather than installing cheap roller coasters at Magic Mountain to keep a stupid record. Now tell me how you really feel... But in all seriousness, is Magic Mountain that bad? It gets a LOT of hate, but is that just because of Six Flags' compulsion to "beat" CP and occasionally ignore the smaller parks, or is it really that bad? Reason I ask is I'm potentially making a side trip to Magic Mountain if I'm in San Diego this summer. That is, if I can't make it back to CP again. Its a big park and definitely worth a visit. Lots of coasters even if they are one trick ponies. Tatsu, X2, and Lex Luthor are worth the trip. Then you have a lot of good(not great) coasters like batman, scream, Riddlers Revenge, and goliath. It seems many people like Batman although i can't stand it and you have probably ridden the same ride at 8 different parks. i just don't get why MM gets so much love from SF when there are other parks, like SFGADV, that could use the love.

  13. No it needs some banking! i do wish they would modify the beast with some banking and a few more drops.
  14. Well, the Jackets lost but I have to say we have a lot of promise for the future. Lots of fight in this team and the fans were great! Id like to hear your impression of the game itself. The fans showed such class after the loss. The Blue Jackets will be back:) The 5th line kicks @ass!
  15. Looks like a fantastic family ride! I'd love to make the trip to get a ride for myself:) Maybe this summer!
  16. You're joking right? Of Course I am. No way this thing is open till June! At least in my humble opinion:)
  17. Thanks for posting Robb. First off, The Beast is definitely an "accept it for what it is coaster." It doesn't have great airtime, it isn't very extreme, but its just freaking fun. It's like an out of control mine ride, as though you are Indiana Jones and the little Asian boy flying around in that cart! It's different, yet fun. And I have had the honor of being on the last train of the night as a "junior" on "senior" skip day!!! LOL Principal did find out, and I did get in trouble! I also remember as a young child being too small to ride. This was the one ride where my parents both rode and my sister and I would walk across the trains and wait as they did so. I remember watching my parents on the train as they crested the first hill. I didn't know what happened after, but I remember being so excited as they came back to the station! It was magical to me and sis even before we were big enough to ride! This video just brought back many happy memories as a child and I thank you so much for it!
  18. ^Of course you didn't like it. It's in Ohio! Same coaster in Europe and you'd be singing its praises.
  19. Yep! A few pages back one of the Ohio nut jobs called me "TPR's most negative member" for pointing out the widely known fact that modern B&M inverts aren't as good as the old school ones like Dragons, Montu, Katun, Batman, Nemesis, etc. Banshee will be a smashing success for the park and WAYYYYY better than SOB. But one needs to go into this with realistic expectations considering the types of rides B&M is building these days. Quoted for hilariousness!!!
