  1. If anything, with all of these TR's coming in, I am glad to see that Superman is in red and blue again. The red track pops so well against a blue sky, it is ridiculous. As for the actual ride experience, from what everyone is saying, in my heart of hearts, I knew they would mess it up somehow, and I am not thrilled about the VR addition either. I am excited to go back and ride Wicked Cyclone though
  2. The entire CZARFACE II album (7L & Esoteric w/Inspectah Deck)
  3. They were topped with a light dusting of snow yesterday morning. A couple of pebbles fell of the top of the pile too due to the wind. Do we know if the pebbles of gravel that fell are okay?? Or are they are going to be suing Six Flags for not providing enough barriers from the wind? Actually, it was a sign from Six Flags Great Adventure about their next attraction. The two pebbles represent the two syllables of the type of ride, which would be "t-rex" They're getting creative with their hints. Good thing we have TPR sleuths here to keep us informed.
  4. ^^ But the thing is, a mere hour and a half away (not that great of distance in the grand scheme of things) is Six Flags Great Adventure, which for roughly the same price, offers infinitely more than Luna does. The price tag of $35 would have been partially justified for what it offers, but $70? No.
  5. In high school, I took 4 semesters of engineering courses (basic, entry level courses, mind you) and was planning on designing roller coasters for a living. But somewhere along the way, I had a changed of heart, and I ended up choosing Film Production, and I am currently a couple of semesters away from that BS*** ***Bachelor of Science. I could have sworn that Film Production was a Bachelor of Arts, but my mistake.
  6. Those restraints are real, 100%, no doubt about it, no question. Coasterdamus is completely literal though. Nothing goes over his head, for his reflexes are too quick. He would always catch it.
  7. Speculation would point to StR leaving, although Cedar Point has not confirmed or denied the rumors at this point EDIT: Also, I think after the 2013 incident, down time, and low rider count, it would only strengthen the argument that it would be coming down.
  8. Good lord! Why should they stop there, though? Why not "Columbine: 4-D: The Interactive Experience: The Ride" or "Vietnam Flashbacks" and it's a Vekoma Boomerang.
  9. I rode the Woodstock Express at Cedar Point for the credit. Alone.
  10. Canobie Lake Park usually has decent flat ride aesthetics, but Skater is ugly as sin, to be honest.
  11. Damn. I didn't know the boat ride was no longer operating. My wife and I went on it several years ago and actually thought it was a nice/fun break from coasters. A break from coasters.........that's cute Most times it's not a sickness/endurance thing. I just don't get much enjoyment out of marathoning a coaster, or going coaster-to-coaster constantly. It becomes monotonous. I agree. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I find great enjoyment at just walking around a good park. I bought the Flash Pass when we went to SF Great America, and I didn't ride any coaster more than 4 times. Most I rode 1 or 2. I got it just to make it a relaxing day where I didn't have to stand in lines for 80% of it. A theme park day should be relaxing. I know I didn't feel that way when I was a teenager; I think I might be starting to grow up. Nah, I'm posting on a roller coaster forum. I'm safe from that for a while. I feel like even at my age right now (20), I've been going to theme parks and all that jazz for a little under 15 years now, and it's harder to pull the numbers that I use to. When I was 11, I think (or during the first two seasons of Kingda Ka) I pulled off an impressive 20 some odd times in one day. At SFNE, I did S:RoS about 15-16 times in one day (all of this with aide from the Flash Pass, of course). Now, I would be hard pressed to reach those numbers again. I think I could do it, but I might need a break in the middle.
  12. Came across this while on Facebook. Aerial footage of Geauga Lake, although nothing new, thought it was interesting enough to share. The video is about 6 minutes long.
  13. I am fairly certain it was an Arrow coaster, but your point is still valid
  14. Took a bit of search refining, but I found the video of EXT I was looking for
  15. ExtremeRoller and Rail Blazer were both 1984 Arrow retrofits, and both were then reverted to their former coasters after only one or two seasons, with the the former (EXT) being removed completely over time. There's actually a video floating around YouTube of EXT in action, albeit it's not the best footage and the majority is shaky handheld. However, during that video, I believe there is an on-ride POV with someone holding the camera (the footage is ass, though). But it would be interesting to find that video again to potentially get an idea of how Rail Blazer might have operated as well.
  16. Fantastic news! Renewed excitement in S:RoS. Can't wait to see how it all unfolds!
  17. People have been saying things like "What would this track design do in terms of innovation?" among other questions. I like to think that it opens RMC up to a myriad of new opportunities. Such as bringing their flowing coaster designs that they have displayed with the wooden/steel hybrids they have created to the world of both all steel designs, and inverted coasters. None of us have much of a clue as to what they will utilize this track design for, but personally, the aesthetic look of either an up right or inverted coaster flying along a ribbon of steel is fairly pleasing. I know I may be contested on that opinion, but that's just me.
  18. Don't worry, they'll be running all the water rides/water park off of donated bottles of water.
  19. I think my favorite element so far to look at would either be the first roll that happens coming down the first hill, or the large over bank. SC looks like it has unbelievable amounts of flow and G's tucked away within it's track. Wish I could make the trip to ride this thing.
  20. Foundation is being broken/laid, but there are no pieces of Fireball at the site yet.
  21. I remember watching this documentary a while back, but the first minute of it shows Chiller, Evolution, the Bumper Cars, and the topic of the film is the Haunted Castle. I believe this was made in 2003. It is interesting to see the area go from a described "high traffic" area, to completely abandoned in its current state.
  22. If SFGADv wouldn't want to jump the gun on a T-Rex coaster, perhaps a revitalization of the area would start with a Premier Sky Rocket II. I doubt that they would go for something like that, especially after installing The Joker which utilizes the same concept of a very compact footprint, but it is a thought. Especially since the land where Chiller sat would be a nice home for it, if they choose not to expand that area for a larger coaster.
  23. Apologies for the argument. Getting back on track, I wonder if RMC would ever consider doing a suspended roller coaster with the T-Rex track. Would that even be possible?
