  1. My last RMC post, was written while inebriated. I was given several lashes and forced to act out scenes from The Hunger Games ------ I was Katniss's little sister, "Lil Jen" I think she's called in the book......... But now, with a drunken night past - and numerous fresh ideas sprouting - I think, I just may be able to express myself through English via my AOL 4.0 portal. - I believe RMC is currently the equivalent to an indie rock band, who blew up instantly and is now playing the main stage at the biggest venues around(lame comparison, I know) - Do you think RMC will increase the amount of coasters they build on a yearly basis? - If so, do you think it will effect the overall quality of the coasters. Yes, Wildfire looks great - I'm looking past that time frame. - With all the love the coaster community has shown RMC, do you think in the future they will take that trust for granted? I don't want to sound like a pessimist - but from the majority of users here on TPR tend to feel B&M has gone that route and are using their high quality construction/low maintenance/high customer satisfaction as selling points to the parks---- and giving the coaster community thrills that don't live up to the standard they set some twenty years ago. - Ideally, what would you like RMC to do in the future? How do you want to see the company evolve? Purchase/Merge with other manufacturers? Inverted woodie ect.....? More of what they have been delivering(topper/IBox rides)? Doubling the output of coasters? - As RMC grows, will you miss the mystique of there being so few(and of such high quality) rides? - As you know, a limited selection of anything allows greater satisfaction. - RMC has very few installations. Referencing again to the "mystique" of the all powerful RMC ----- How do you think you/we/coaster enthusiasts will remember these early days of RMC? We are currently watching their flower bloom. - How much longer do you think this grace period will last? Will they need to put out a stinker of a ride first? Or will other companies be playing catch up and we don't have a clue who's holding the joker? Here's my music video I edited, featuring "Escape From Tomorrow". If you haven't heard of it, and like Disney..... Look it up and watch it(if you have patience, and like cinema) Mod note: Completely pointless, and yes, spamming YouTube link removed. Film noir. If you like rock music, far out visuals, Disney World, and artsy 'crap' - you'll dig my video I promise. I'm not spamming, I'm proud of my dumb editing/story telling skills. PS --------- I sill think the concept of someone from RMC(an actor), acting like Ron Toomer.... bending a hanger to describe just the most ridiculous, future/shape shifting/inversion/element that none of us have even dreamt of yet is comic gold waiting to be unraveled. There's just something missing, oh yeah - actual humor.
  2. That drop...... WOW! Your going to fly out of your seat in that back car. Even though the car will be moving quicker with people, I think the POV footage from September last year really gives a good impression that -------- there's going to be some "sick", "rad", "totally cool" hang time on that zero-g-stall.
  3. So I guess I never asked a question. 1 What do you SEE in the future of RMC. 2- Preferably, what direction would you like them to go. 3 - Would you be upset, angry, or let down if they(within 5 year) started putting out five coasters a year with minimal differences (whether it be forces, layout, or just a few key elements) 4 - Do you see RMC as the new B&M. If not, why so? I think this topic has a wide reaching potential, far reaching beyond the simple "yay or nay" RMC becoming a true coaster empire(arrow 80's/early 90s, then B&M recently for example) in the coaster world.
  4. I don't mean to be a downer, but about seventy-five percent of the threads on here, people think/or want an RMC at there park - and to boot they're 75% sure of it! Unless RMC ups the ante to 4 or more coasters a year, the reality is that RMC is a special product, and I fully believe they know, and are embracing the fact that the coaster community is behind them like I wish I was behind a (name your favorite European export car). I like the idea of RMC building a small amount (No more then three a year at most) of coasters globally. a) it would keep the legend of RMC alive b) it would be harder for them to cannibalize themselves, and start outsourcing(even more so) ect...... c)As great as it would be to have an RMC at every park, I don't want another B&M burnout situation. ------ That however, is a completely different topic with many fun angles to jab at within it. d) And most importantly - the Mystique! "What do you want to see at your park next year"? HELL, even when people ask, "what do you think people are building at your park next year" ----- I'm sure all of you have noticed that around half the responses include one of the following - "Intiman mega-lite, or an RMC (aquatrax trailing far behind in third place)(and, is that a joke I'm missing? That's really what you want!?!) ------ I just want us to have a realistic POV of RMC ---- I want them to stay golden! I want RMC to be the "American Intiman"(or whatever coaster company you prefer), with a cheaper price tag, while keeping the projects unique to each parks demands. Oversaturation of the market helps initially. ----- i'm a little drunk, so I'll keep this short. Gatekeeper ----- a coaster that's name rang across America's(global as well) coaster community. In the end has become another faceless B&M, with lines that rival Raptor. In my perspective, In 15 years it will be the next Iron Dragon, with a 22 million dollar overage on the budget. In the end, lets not take RMC for granted, and be grateful for what they are giving us coaster/theme park nerds. Don't push for more! Push for less if anything! Push for quality! Push for things that make the GP say "WOW". ------- Goliath at SFGAm, has the GP confused(bad), but amazed(Great) simultaneously. I'd like to see RMC keep advancing in their design at the same pace since they started with Texas Giant. However, don't clone, don't cheapen up, and don't cave to B***S*** checks just to bolster a mediocre park line up. RMC can stand for something unlike ever seen in the coaster industry if they take care of their company and their products, and that's what I'd like to see done. I don't want a damned inverted RMC............ I want RMC to continue their tirade in making the other companies look like chumps. PS ----- RMC --- please make a video with funny or die where you talk about designing new ride elements with a hanger. I think ER visits would skyrocket ---- and many wouldn't be able to be brought back. Thanks for reading my drunken post, I've felt this way for a while, and the RMC love/RMC "lets over expose the s*** out of it" has bothered me. Here were my qualms. Disagree or agree, hell, maybe I made no sense. How do you guys feel with what I presented. ------------------------------- Ken PS----- if you click the URL(link?) I posted ---- its a music video I made using exclusively footage from Escape from Tomorrow ----- If you don't know what that is -------- you should click, and then watch my other videos I've made.............. I make some cooooooll SH*******T boys just watch it, its creepy and the song is bananas. long drunk post my bad
  5. It sucks that one fence isn't enough to get "stay off my lawn" across.
  6. The construction crews didn't see their family. They went to a local dive, or a bar near Gurnee Mills and spilt the beans on how much they hate their life right now. 1/2 joke, get it!?!?!
  7. I like the moral of this thread. "Its OK to be crazy, just not f****** nuts". Bless you 'Mantis Man' --- for you have made me laugh.
  8. That drop has such a small footprint! WE, guys, are the lucky locals this year. Goliath, and SFGAm - thank you.
  9. Wow, that is a snappy ride. --- It reminds me of Magnum XL 200, the rather rigid feel between elements. I'm very impressed and am in the boat of wanting more rides likes this. This is (one of the)best things you could put in with a 10 million dollar(I'd guess?) budget.
  10. I recommend staying on site. --------- Nothing like walking back to the room for a few midday drinks, or hanging out on the the beach to end the night. Not to mention being able to enter the park an hour early,and never having to leave the peninsula. There are many perks that negate the premium you'll be paying for the hotel room.
  11. I really like your photos. They're breath of fresh air here. Keep it up!
  12. I think the tunnel, make that 'tunnels' make the ride more difficult to clone. And it's not as small as we originally thought. I don't foresee this ride becoming the new norm, especially if X-Flight hasn't been cloned yet. We finally have our untamed, Raging Bull. (in a sense)
  13. 100% correct! Kumba is definetely an awesome experience. Considering that there isn't really a ton of Sit-Down B&M's left. Correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't none of B&Ms 100 or so coasters gone out of commission(they have changed parks)? == There was never to many sitdowns to begin with.
  14. I previously said I was loving the way the dive loops looks, and how the track doesn't bend into the inversion, and that it looks like it 'snaps' into the dive nice and quick. I just saw the picture of the beginning on the zero-g-stall, and it looks like RMC is giving us another quick, breath taking inversion. Dada-DA-dah-DAA, I'm Lovin' It. Goliath looks like it will leave the crowds breathless, giving standing ovations(at least people will try), with a clap-happy return to the station,
