  1. This year I visited SFGA and Busch Gardens Williamsburg. I usually only get to go to two (at most) theme parks a year, but I try and make them ones I haven't visited or ones I haven't been to in a while. I have been to SFGA befor,e but I went with some freinds who have not been there before. The first time I went there I rode almost all the coasters, but for some reason i left out El Toro! So El toro was my goal of that trip and it did not disappoint! Easily one of the best wooden coasters I have ever been on and possibly my favorite coaster ever!

     

    1. El Toro

     

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg I have not been to in a while so there was quite a bit of new things in the park. The last time I went there I was young so I was too scard to go on Alpengeist and Griffon did not exist. Griffon was the most unique of the two, but Alpengeist had so much force and was beautifully layer out.

  2. Don't get me started on Harry Potter! Seriously in love with that series. I started Eragon and have yet to finish that, but I enjoyed it so far. I Liked the Hunger Games trilogy but couldn't connect with the characters as much as HP. I love fantasy novels and si-fi are good. I usually don't read that much but when I get a good book I'm hooked until I finish it.

  3. ^That would be very cool and I'd love it too, but where would it be ? The only spot I see is if they remove the Bobsleds, but there's a lot of trees and it would be very difficult to install a woodie there unless they cut them all (personally, I would hate to see this happen, I love all the trees at the GE). Also, there's the former nightmare spot in the middle of the Plunge, but it would be very tight.
    I was thinking putting a euro fighter in the nightmare building (that is if it is still there) with an outdoor section for the lift and major elements. They could do some really cool things with that building, but I doubt six flags would do that :/ if the building isn't there anymore, a simple euro fighter would do fine in that area. Don't remove the bobsleds! It is one of the few coasters there and one of the few bobsleds in the world. Another woodie would be good too they just need something!
  4. I went on my first stand up this year and thought it was okay. It was Green Lantern at SFGA and thought that it had to much force on my ankles. The inversions were neat though and I loved the drop and giant loop! I feel that they have potential but they need tweaking. Maybe a stand up hyper coaster would be fun with huge airtime hills and a loop or two but no crazy twists or corcscrews.

  5. Yeah I need to go on more woodies... I forgot the Cyclone from SFNE but it would have been last anyway. I'm a steel kinda person and usually don't go on wooden coasters unless I know it is good like El Toro or my friends really want to go on it.

  6. The other day someone told me that Buzzlightyear Space Ranger Spin was closed in Disney World and has been closed for a few years. My response was "no it's been open and I'm pretty sure Disney plans to keep it open". Went home and checked my computer because I got really nervous that I missed some information and was right that It did not close..... Always follow your gut never the GP.....

  7. I have a Nokia Lumia 520. Its a value smart phone but does everything i need it to. I have a go phone account so i don't have to pay for data which is nice since data is crazy expensive and WiFi is basically everywhere. The camera is 5 megapixels so it isn't great but it isn't terrible. Its a windows phone and since I'm used to Apple products it was different, but it got easier to use the more i use it. I'm happy with my phone so i guess that's what matters.

  8. I chose universal for it is like disney with all of the movies and outstanding themeing, but with thrill rides. Yes they are two completely different corporations, universal has that edge i want in a theme park. Disney is fantastic and magical but it is for families. Plus Universal has Harry Potter so that pits it up and over Disney for me

  9. Im new to the forum and have been playing Tapped Out a bit

  10. Hi I'm Ryan,

     

    I live in upstate NY. It's pretty lame and not many theme parks close by. I'm sad to say that Six Flags Great Escape is my home park, but I prefer to go to other parks just because it's so tiny. I'm a high school student and am going to major in Architecture in college. My life time goal is to work with Disney or Universal some day, but I have a long time until then. I have been obsessed with roller coaster my entire life! I don't remember when it started but I just knew I loved them besides coasters, I enjoy drawing, HARRY POTTER (that's a biggie haha don't judge me), and hanging out with friends (typical teenage stuff ) I honestly don't know how many coasters I have been on but I have been to quite a few theme parks on the east coast of the USA. Umm so yeah that's me haha nice to be a part of a theme park community though. Not too many roller coaster geeks where I live (there are none...)
