  1. I think I've done that countless times the past couple years! What high school did you go to?
  2. I have my BGT and IOA/USF passes so I'm sure I'll be back at all those parks. June Roadtrip: SFoG SFAm SFGAdv Wildwood Piers (maybe, I think I'd rather spend time in NYC instead) Lake Compounce SFNE Dorney Knoebels Hershey I don't see myself going to any other parks because of how much that road trip is going to cost me!
  3. Stinkoman would destroy any of those guys in a challenge.
  4. I saw Sin City last night. It was freakin' awesome! Easily the best comic book to big screen adaption I've ever seen. The film is basically composed of two main stories that are eventually connected towards the end a la Pulp Fiction. Also, the visuals are amazing because it doesn't stray at all from the look of Frank Miller's comic books (excuse me, they're "graphic novels.") I don't want to give away anything about the film's charaters but I thought the casting was excellent and the very memorable characters will leave stark images in your head. As much as I enjoyed Sin City, its hard for me to recommend it to everyone because the gruesome violence, twisted stories, and gun-slinging prostitutes. 9.5/10
  5. http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?style=music&pid=1764777&cart=239142378 ^I've listened to this cd lately which is a famous live performance featuring him, Al DiMeola, and Paco De Lucia.
  6. Can you really compare skydiving to a roller coaster though? The free fall from a skydive is like what thousands of feet? It doesn't matter, once the object reaches a certain speed it doesn't increase. Throw a penny of the Empire State Building and it will be slowed down by wind resistance. Falling at terminal velocity for an extended period of time (like during skydiving) would create an unbelievably amazing coaster experience. I guess that's kind of the point of freefall towers though...
  7. I found this article on Screamscape and I'm not sure if anyone else has posted this yet: http://www.norwichbulletin.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050320/NEWS01/503200301/1002 Basically it's a proposed theme park resort outside of Springfield, MA called Utopia that features four indoor theme parks for year round operation. For some reason there's a lot of talk about EPCOT in the article because the projected attendance figures (a ridiculously ambitious 9.5 million visitors!) are about the same for the Utopia resort and EPCOT. This just seems like a joke to me because I can't see that kind of market for a New England park and a company that would take a $1.6 billion chance on this. Comments...
  8. I think just having a go-cart place themed to look like the Mario Kart games would be awesome.
  9. I have over $200 in quarters but I might cash them in to help fund my road trip this summer...
  10. Busch Gardens Tampa is about a 30 min. drive south and the Universal parks are about a 2 hour drive east. I usually only do one WDW park a year because their passes are so expensive (more than $200.) I'll definately need to spend some quality time in Animal Kingdom in 2006 though.
  11. I'm a practicing Catholic and have been all my life. I used to not care about it but the last couple of years I've been able to see and appreciate the depth of the faith and I find I'm more at peace when I'm the most open to it. I hope this doesn't start some kind of arguement but I personally feel that agnostic is the worst thing to claim yourself to be. Saying that you're sitting on the fence means you're just trying to be safe.
  12. Good to know I'm not the only prog nerd on here! I wouldn't call them my favorite band but I've been listening The Mars Volta a lot lately.
  13. I was more or less asking if the area around Capital Heights was alright to stay at. I've had to stay in some pretty crappy areas around D.C. before so I'm a little hesitant to book anything without knowing what I'm getting into. Thanks for the response.
  14. My first coaster must be seen to be believed: http://www.rcdb.com/ig2908.htm?picture=1 I had to be 6 or 7. I have yet to go on such an amazing air time machine since then...
  15. Three of my friends and I are going on a coaster road trip this summer and I've found houses to stay at except for around SFA. Does anyone know of any economy hotels around there that aren't in an ultra-ghettofied area?
  16. SFGA has a decent collection of rides (Nitro's one of my personal favorite rides) but the cleanliness is about what you'd expect from SF and the food is subpar except for that Chinese place at the back of the park. I found the layout to be really akward- they've built so far out into the parking lot that the main entrance is in the center of the parK!
  17. DD Fire- front row! IMO one of the best roller coaster experiences anywhere.
  18. I've always been facinated by roller coasters since I can remember but I was scared to death of riding them for a while. I went to BGT with just my mom in summer '98 or '97 and I remember before we got there I made her promise me to make me ride Montu (not bad for a fist coaster!) After forcing me on that first ride I was totally hooked and I think I must have ridden Montu and Kumba ten times each that day.
