  1. My Cedar Point fanboy buddy sent me this, in case it hasn't been posted. I didn't even ask where it came from. He also seems to think there will be some crazy lighting package...

    how on earth did your friend get access to these professional blueprints? these must have been taken right from the worksite

     

    ot: everyones arguing over 2017 vs 2018 still and i'm just over here hoping it'll be their 150th anniversary surprise for 2020. i just wanna see the world burn

    Speaking of the world burning, forget 2018... 2017 might even be one year too late given the way the election's turned out.

  2. I-Box records I can think of off the top of my head:

     

    *Tallest hybrid

    *Fastest hybrid

    *Longest hybrid

    *Hybrid with the most inversions

    *Most hybrids in one park (3: both sides of Gemini & Meanstreak)

    *Hybrid with the most complicated name (Rougarou, Valravim, Meanstreak~Insert random mythological creature here~)

    *Hybrid with most numbers in its name (Magnum XL-200, Intimidator 305, Fury 325, Meanstreak~Insert height of lifthill here~)

  3. It will be removed to make space for the new coaster Valkyria and after the construction of Helix Kanonen has become redundant.

     

    Liseberg will remove Kanonen after the winter season, because it will only be open the first two month of the summer season before it needs to be removed, and then the whole are needs to be fenced of due to safety regulation when dismantling the coaster. Under the dismantling of Kanonen there will be no access to Balder, Mechanica etc. With the removal of Kanonen before the summer season Liseberg can have a smaller construction area and happier customers that will be able to ride Balder & Mechanica.

    Will it be relocated to another park?

  4. I just thought that I would announce a ridership number that the park released today!

     

    As of the end of the 2016 season, Dragon Fire has the park's highest ridership at 40,737,787 riders! Dragon Fire (Formerly known as Dragon Fyre from 1981-1996) opened with the park on May 23rd, 1981. Congratulations Dragon Fire for providing safe rides throughout the past 35 years!

    Also Congratulations to the smoothest arrow coaster out there

    Vortex (CW) and Dragon Mountain (Marineland) would like a word with you, please.

  5. To be honest, not sure why people are saying it's not a roller coaster.

     

    Isn't it basically a powered coaster?

     

    It has a belt (for lack of a better word) that goes around the entire track, is connected to the ride vehicle and it all moves at the same time. Pipe Scream is more of a coaster than this thing. At least that's an independent ride vehicle moving along a track. That being I said I love watching people get pissed off about it.

    Doesn't the belt only go 1/2 way around the track (connects two trains), unlike the superloop where the belt goes all the way around the circuit?

  6. I really like the way TPR's done their IAAPA coverage in recent years. Way different from all the other sites. If I want long form interviews, there's plenty of other sites I can visit. If I want the other FUN stuff, I know TPR is the place to be!

     

    In regards to "other media events", do you guys mean Coaster related stuff or just other media in general?

  7. Wow how far TPR has come since those humble early days. Just think of what this site may become in the next 20 or so years.

    While I can't deny how the site is miles ahead of where it first started, based on the screenshot, I've always kind of liked the old-school charm/vibe TPR has. In the 10 or so years I've visited TPR, I find it neat how it still feels familiar; a stark contrast to other sites I visit regularly (i.e. YouTube, Facebook, etc.) that seem to get updated/changed every other week.
