  1. Figured this was the best place to put this. Saw this on the Von Roll Facebook page and thought it was pretty cool! It's a model of old Coney Island in Cincinnati with working coaster models and a working SkyRide, I know this will keep Coasterbill happy! Check it out! It's located at EnterTrainment near Cincinnati. More info here: EnterTrainment Their Facebook page

  9. Is it common to have two different companies programming different parts on coasters, especially launch coasters? Not that I'll ever get a chance to build a coaster and contract jobs out, but I would assume it would be easier to have just one company do it all.
  10. You could ask me tomorrow and this list would change order, but one thing I know for sure is that Intimidator is the worst out of all of the ones I've ridden. 1 Phantom's Revenge 2 Diamondback 3 Apollo's Chariot 4 Magnum XL200 5 Goliath SFOG 6 Skyrush 7 Steel Force 8 Goliath SFMM 9 Intimidator
  11. I think a large factor in the construction progress lies in attention to detail. That of which IvadR seems to have much more, as it is a terrain hugging machine. Let alone any other themeing surprises BGW has in store. Not my quote but yes, I agree with you. InvadR has much more going into it than just a shed.
  12. Kings Island is closed, BGW is still open. I'm sure they have to be extra careful when guests are around and that probably slows things down. But who cares? As long as it opens at some point, does it really matter that another coaster was further along in construction in December? I'm sure BGW is fine with what has been completed so far, which seems to be a decent amount.
  13. Wow, this ride looks fantastic! They really put a lot into a small space. Looks like a big time winner for Fun Spot!
  14. Even if it was going there, there is still plenty of space for other things in that area. What this park has done in these past few years is pretty great. Two new coasters, refurb of one (even though I wish T3 would just be taken down), plenty of flats, and a pretty decent water park. Yea a Larson Loop isn't the best of rides, but I think it's a good thrilling addition for this park. I already have my season pass for next year. It's so cheap and I got it early enough for free drinks, I'm basically robbing them of money at this point. Glad to see this park growing!
  15. I like the new restraint on the wing coasters and inverts, but they really need to stay with the old restraints on the Dive Coasters. I like the freedom they give on the dive machines, the vests don't let you float as much I think.
  16. I'm in line for WE now, it said about 40 minutes but it's moving pretty well.
  17. My Lightning Rod luck just won't turn around for me. Ride not open today yet. Hopefully it will open later...I'll just go enjoy some tasty Dollywood food!
  18. My list plus the first year I went there! Idlewild '95 Kennywood '97 Disneyland '98 Cedar Point '00 Busch Gardens Williamsburg '02 WDW Magic Kingdom '02 WDW Hollywood Studios '02 WDW Epcot '02 WDW Animal Kingdom '02 Myrtle Beach Pavilion '04 Canadas Wonderland '05 Kings Island '07 Disney California Adventure '07 Universal Studios Hollywood '07 Elitch Gardens '13 Holiday World '13 Dollywood '13 Carowinds '14 Six Flags Over Georgia '14 Kings Dominion '14 Dorney '14 Hersheypark '14 Knoebels '14 Six Flags Magic Mountain '14 Knott's Berry Farm '14 Kentucky Kingdom '15 Universal Islands of Adventure '16 Fun Spot America '16 Universal Studios Florida '16 Busch Gardens Tampa '16
  19. I was thinking your break run would be a lift hill. Basically have the trains go into the hill just like Thunderbolt with a tight Phantom style drop into the building. Or maybe they plan to demolish that building? Either way, I'm excited my original home park is getting some new. I haven't been able to get back there for a few years, I miss my favorite Kennywood classics!
  20. I know this is a joke, but god would I love to have this here. An Intamin an hour away? Yes please. It would fit nicely with their low height restrictions.
  21. Oh man, that is so good! lol Where did that come from??? Regarding Mean Streak, I'm rooting for a topper track conversion. Looking at Wildfire, Outlaw Run, and Lightning Rod, I don't think there is much they couldn't do with Topper Track that they do with the IBox track. I think it would be cool to see something a little different. Either way, whatever comes will be way better than what Mean Streak was.
