  1. What is with coaster enthusiasts and body odor? I mean what the hell?


    Not only have I experienced it myself more than I care to recall but I always hear about it from other people. I mean, I take public transit every day, 4 different trains and 2 different buses every single day, in a major American city, and rarely catch it there as much as I have with enthusiasts. Why is it a thing?



    My daughter and I were in line behind a couple of uber enthusiast waiting for Hurler last year. When we chose our row she said, "Dad, why did those guys smell like pirates?" I lost it and laughed for a good 20 minutes. It was the best Hurler ride I've ever had.

  2. ^ Just a question, why does Silver Star beat Shambhala?

    A few things, I like the standard train design better, I like the layout better, the last few airtimehills and the s-bend is fantastic, the atmosphere in the queue and station is way better and finally the operations on Silver Star are fantastic, even on 3 trains no stacking whatsoever!


    I agree about the trains. The older style trains have better pacing, IMO.

  3. I've never kept track of my credits. I've tried to count recently and I was at about 200, give or take.


    I have a funny "enthusiast" story.


    My family and I visited Cedar Point in 94. I had ridden my first enormous coaster, Kumba, the year before. I immediately wanted to ride bigger and better coasters. I had been to Cedar Point before but this was the first time I wanted to ride every coaster there.


    I remember getting to the park and immediately, by mistake, riding Raptor. We must've waited two hours to ride. I loved it, but Kumba was still my favorite.


    After Raptor, we went to ride Magnum. I was so nervous climbing that giant lift hill for the first time but when all was said and done, I thought Raptor was better.


    Later that night, we were in line for Magnum again. We were behind this guy wearing a jean vest with numerous roller coaster patches sewn on. I'm pretty sure he was an ACE member. We started talking about Cedar Point and eventually roller coasters. He asked me what my favorite coaster was and I told him Kumba. He said, "That's because you haven't ridden Magnum yet." I told him I had and still liked Kumba and Raptor better. He flipped out on me and told me I didn't know anything about coasters or Cedar Point. It was like I murdered his family because Magnum wasn't my favorite coaster. He was so mad, he actually left the queue. It probably didn't help that he was getting heckled pretty bad by the people around him. I was 13 at the time and promised myself I would never be like that guy. That night ride on Magnum was spectacular, by the way.
