  1. For a wooden coaster layout, I think Voyage has the perfect blend of large hills and twisty bits. It's like Diamondback had a baby with Thunderhead!
  2. Just signed up! Can't wait! Anyone in Cincinnati going and want to carpool?
  3. In order: I don't have cable, so I have to watch online the next day. Currently airing: Once Upon A Time. Vampire Diaries Glee Classic TV: Golden Girls (own entire series on DVD) Roseanne
  4. I actually have room for a Tilt-a-whirl or a ride with the same foot print in my back yard. Flat: Definitely a Tilt-a-whirl. (LOVE the one at Cedar Point!) Coaster: (If space is not an issue) A clone of BGT's Kumba with 2 trains so I could rotate them out.
  5. I seen All Shook UP when it came to Cincinnati. Cheyenne Jackson Hairspray 2 years ago. I can not wait for The Little Mermaid to come to Cincinnati (whenever that may be.)
  6. B&M vs Premier... Hmmm... I wonder which one I will ride. I don't plan on going out to SFMM anytime soon, so it will be Gatekeeper for me.
  7. A few defunct coasters come to mind for me. BGT's Python which is probably my # 2 Arrow behind Tornado at Dollywood. KI's King Cobra KI's Son of Beast. While the overall ride experience was a bit painful, it had one of the best drops of all the coasters I have been on. USF's Jaws. It was my all time favorite flat ride. I literally sobbed when I found out it was closing. Universal Orlando will never be the same.
  8. I absolutely LOVE Wynonna! I have gotten Dennis (husband) into her as well. We have met her several times as well: August 14, 2004 at Wild Adventures in Valdosta. Wy: "Are you wearing clean socks?" Me: "I'm wearing my church socks, they're holy." June 2007, Rising Sun Indiana. April 2009 Longwood Florida. She came off the bus for photos. It is to the point now that she points and says "I know you." at her shows.
  9. * Stands up * My name is Jesse, and I have a "husband" of 7.5 years, Dennis. I am the coaster nut of the family, he just rolls his eyes, and tolerates them.... LOL
  10. I have built Montu and SheiKra using CoasterDynamix! It has been a few years since I have worked on them. I am hoping to begin rebuilding them later this year after we (BF and I) move to Florida. Here's my Montu model: The model had improved in terms of shaping of elements and such up until we moved it to Florida, where it sits in storage. Here is the SheiKra model: The SheiKra model stands 4ft tall at the highest point. Very close to being "scale" in height. I created and built the water brake and train scoops, painted the trains, and had decals made. This model has lift hill lighting, an automatic holding brake in front of the "station". The next train had to come through the station and push the train off the brake to advance to the lift. It also has brake on the MCBR, but was really hard to adjust them just right to slow the trains down. This model is also in storage. The rebuild next year will bring both coasters back to life, and the elements will be more "scale" in relation to the life size counterparts. The rebuild will include the beginning stages of Kumba and other BGT features. My goal is to have a fully operating O scale model of BGT. Yes, I know they go extremely fast. You can scale the ride, but you can not scale gravity.
  11. I apologize. I seen "Cedar Fair" and "Magnum" in your original post, and put that together as the CP Arrows. Mamba trains weren't bad, it was just boring! They slow the trains to a crawl on the MCBR, and the second half of the ride is just boring. Typically, B&M trains are heavier than other companies trains. This being a shorter train, I am not so sure. I am sure that B&M was informed about the wind problem they were having with the old trains, and took this into consideration.
  12. Admission is $80 per person and the All Day Dining is $33 per person at the park gates. Play & Dine is a great deal! I do it every year. It's the best value for a one day trip to BGT. If you plan to go more than once, get the Fun Card. Pay for a day, come back all year (parking not included.)
  13. If you speak of Gemini, Corkscrew, and Magnum, or CCMR, they are all Arrow not Morgan. I really like what the have done with these new trains!
