  1. I have to say im not huge on Inverts. Like i enjoy them but i dont like them as much as other people do. My favorite would be Alpengeist and even that doesnt rank super high on my list. Maybe its because i prefer air over force. I cant really say i hate a coaster that people already dont hate. I guess i go wih the flow too much
  2. So i went to Busch last week and i have to say it was a perfect day. No lines for anything. The one thing that bothered me was Europe int the Air. I have never been on it and just went on it to see how bad it really was. It was Horrendous! Worst simuator ever and i even got motion sickness (which never happens)! So here is what im leading up to, why did Busch replace a great ride with this crap? Couldnt they have improved what they had rather than create something new? I never got to ride Corkscrew Hill but ive seen videos and it looked wonderful. The annimation wasnt there but they could have overhauled it like Spiderman. I guess it bothers me to see a great theme park take out a great ride and replace with something not up to par. Lastly, would it be possible to bring back the old movie or is it gone forever?
  3. Griffon at night! Literally the last disapatch of the day
  4. I have to agree. Its just such a beuatiful shape! Cant wait until next week so i can ride this baby again! IMO best invert ever!
  5. The last part on Stormrunner before the breaks i would rather replace with a helix and air hills. Maybe an inversion just to make it alittle longer too. I love Stormrunner but that last part is so useless
  6. I have to say Im a theme park person. I love the little details, the story, but i also like a good ride. When you combine the two, its perfection. I like amusement parks, but id rather have great theming and fewer rides over no theming and tons of rides. The two parks that keep coming mind are Busch Gardens and Islands of Adventure. Both have outstanding theming but have managed to weave in thrill rides without plopping them in a random place. One of my favorite rides of all time has to be Tower of Terror in WDW. It is not the ride that i love the most, but the story that accompanies it. Looking up at the towering hotel is quite terrifying but when the story of the vanishing people is told then the ride starts to feel more real like you are actually going to go into the Twilight zone. I feel like theme parks add that extra dimension that amusement parks lack.
  7. 1 Hyper 2 Dive Machine 3 Inverts 4 Sit Down/ Floorless (they are too similar to judge in separate categories) 5 Flying (ive only been on one, Ultimate Flight, so its hard to rate on a mediocre rated flyer) 6 Stand Up (not because of the groin but my ankles hurt so bad after it) I get to go on Gatekeeper and X flight this summer so i can finally add winged coasters to the list!
  8. Yesterday i went to Hershey and probably had the most perfect day ever! It had slight chance of showers all day and not a single drop fell. I think the longest lines we waited for were Fahrenheit and Tidal Force (my friends wanted to do it, so i went with them) which were about 30 minute waits. I finally got to ride Skyrush!! Last time i went there in 2012, it opened the day after so you can imagine how pissed i was. I love it so much!! I actually like the restraints on it even though they do get somewhat tight, but it was definitely a more open feeling and ever hill makes you feel like you will fly out. So yeah it made my top ten without a doubt. Lastly after having a horrible experience at Six Flags on Friday (long story but it was all the staffs fault), Hershey fixed that by being extremely efficient, great staff, and great rides!
  9. So i remembered how awful Steamin Demon's corkscrews are at Six Flags Great Escape. Going there this friday and not sure if i wanna go on it again. I just remember that everything was fine until the corkscrews. Then my head was slammed (literally slammed) to the sides of the restraint. Getting off my ears were red. (Dont wear glasses! That probably didnt help the ride thankfully i have contacts now).
  10. Im pretty sure it was the Loch ness Monster in BGW but it could also have been the Big Bad Wolf. It was one of the two though.
  11. Thank you! I know some parks are really weird about their rides and weather so its good to know that hershey is rain or shine.
  12. The 30th im going to hershey and the weather forcast shows rain and thunderstorms. Im hoping it will be nice because weather forecasts are not the most accurate a week in advance, but if it does rain, how is hershey with rain? Do they close their rides as soon as they see bad clouds or do they let the coasters run in the rain? Thunderstorms they would be closed obviously
  13. So i know the GP mess up Disneyland and Disney World quite a bit, but its also with Six Flags. Sometimes my friends will be like lets go to Six Flags. "Okay which one?" (What? Theres more than one??). Not only that, but Six Flags likes to use Six Flags Great _________ since they are Six Flags and like to reuse many of their names. Recently on Facebook, someone put a picture of all of her friends and tagged it as Great Adventure when they were at Great Escape. Yeah you got the Six Flags right but you were not in NJ. I can see why it would be confusing, but they should really check online before they tag the wrong place. Nice try GP.
  14. It looks like a fun little park. Does the drop ride break down often? Im just curious to know if its not just Mach Tower that has the technical issues.
  15. HOLY FLIPPIN CRAP!!! Cant wait to ride this! Soooo glad college is an hour away
  16. Ive read on some forums that people are complaining about he London rocks area. It is a bit bright, but it definitely livens up the path and it is very cheerful! Love the red double decker bus wish i could go to Virginia soon even though I was just there last year. Oh well... Nice pics!
  17. I just imagine the boom stopping horizontally and lowering so the lower half of the carriages can unload/load. Then the other upper half moves and can do the same before the boom rises back up the tower and starts the ride cycle. What if it was built like an S&S SkySwat? It would be able to raise and lower,mbut still have the strengh needed to support the giant zipper.
  18. Zippers are so hard to describe unless you have been on one! I love them it is so unpredictable! Sometimes u get some great airtime while other times you might be flipped 20 times! I really hope they upgrade this ride! It already is great, but it looks so dated now. What would be really nice is if a giant zipper 2.0 was created thats at least 70 feet high! My mouth is already drooling.
  19. Thank god for video recording! Im going to Toronto this summer with the family but i think im gonna have to do some major pulling to go to CW wince we are already going to cedar point and most of them dont like rides :/
  20. Haha i don't know how to delete messages so i left at that anyway i tried focusing the message on the spoiler box so people could quickly glance over the message if they didn't want spoilers. (Is there a spoiler box on TPR?) Im way to excited for this ride! I probably wont be able to ride it this hear but it definitely has me thinking on what is inside the dang mountain!
  21. If you haven't been on it, i would consider it pretty intense and the themeng is outstanding! The thing that puts it over the top for me is that it has a random drop sequences! So to answer you question both and then some
  22. I haven't been on many drop towers. In fact I've only been on 3: tower of terror (WDW), Dr dooms fearfall, and Mäch tower. In order i would rate them Tower of Terror Mäch Tower Dr Doom's Fearfall I felt that MT and DDF gave the same feeling, MT was just a linger fall thats why its better. ToT was just absolutely amazing every way so its pretty obvious its 1 for me
  23. It sonuds like there is going to be a drop like Verbolten. I dont know what else would catch people off guard besides that or maybe a backwards segment, but this is a small ride so i doubt it will go backwards. It could be something visual like fire or a giant annimatronic dragon. This ride is really getting me excited!
