  1. Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster- Movie World Austrailia has the car eaten by an idol.
  2. Just wait a few years. How about Luna Park coming into NYC?
  3. I think Kings Island is getting a B&M invert, since besides Valleyfair, Kings Island is the only Cedar Fair park without a complete circuit inverted coaster with inversions.
  4. What is your "favorite" park Mr. Alvey? I don't mean "favorite" as in the park you like the most, but in which park is the most important to you?
  5. Good news is that Disney is responding: http://www.today.com/news/undercover-disney-deplorable-scheme-skip-lines-6C10131266
  6. I think Alton Towers has a winner here! In my opinion it perfectly fits the area left by the former Black Hole coaster.
  7. Yes, both the family slides are RTM. What does RTM mean? Is it a manufacturer, or is it a production method? RTM is a fiberglass production method that uses injection into a two sided mold rather than spraying the fiberglass onto the mold. RTM allows for both the inside of the slide and the outside to be smooth and have the shiny finish. The older method is shiny and smooth on the inside but the outer side of the slide has a dull-surface that you can see the fiberglass fibers…does that make sense? Yes it does. Thank you very much.

  9. It's too early to jump to conclusions. KD didn't get I305 track until late July of 2009. Too soon to call it.
  10. It seems that this new knockoff had a slower pace than that of Colossus version.
  11. I never knew Disney used dry ice to keep food cold. At Cedar Fair, they used ice to cool food.
  12. Then why doesn't the park manage who has access to the dry ice then? With such a dangerous object, couldn't the park safeguard their supplies in a better manner?
  13. I used to work at a Cedar Fair park, and workers would always be subjected to bag checks. Most likely, the CM went through a security checkpoint.
  14. More consistent, sure, but metal detectors wouldn't have stopped the dry ice incident. It's a tough call. But a bag check would most certainly have!
  15. Cobra .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol was the weapon according to screamscape.
  16. Cincy based myth here: Shooting Star was rebuilt as the Racer at Kings Island.
  17. I just think its sad that someone thought it was a good idea to bring a gun to DisneyWorld.
  18. Regarding IRAT, did it come off completely, or was it the tip of the tail which detached? I heard it was only the tip that came off.
  19. As someone who does security every day I have to ask, do you have any idea as to how much work it is to try and detect things like this? You can't just wave a magic wand and catch every scumbag that wants to do harm/create chaos. You can only do your best to gather information and execute your standards as effectively as possible. I'm confident Disney did their best, and these incidents (with zero injuries) should have zero bearings on how people view the parks. They caught the idiot responsible, and that's the important thing. Good point. I never thought of it like that. I thought of security as an amusement park's firewall system.
  20. Disney security has failed this week: a dry ice bomb at Didneyland, a fully loaded automatic gun found on ride at WDW. There needs to be better security!
  21. Gun found on thrill ride. Disney World patron finds gun on ride A Walt Disney World patron on a ride with her grandson found a loaded gun on her seat. Read more: http://wcpo.m0bl.net/r/1j3488
  22. Thanks. I did not realize that Sky Cabin and the Sky Drop were on the same tower. Why did they take it out, just wondering. Also, great image of the original Corkscrew entrance.
