  1. Just keep doing your thing Robb... "Nerd Culture" has a downside and this is a perfect showcase of that crap... It's amazing how the internet has allowed these people a soapbox over the last 10-12 years.... Just keep letting the haters hate. Jealousy is a wonderful thing to observe from afar
  2. I'll take a double of American Honey while I dig out my slide rule
  3. "I'm 1200 miles away in FL." And people wonder why stuff like this isn't taken seriously...
  4. Why do y'all hate America? P.S. There needs to be a boat simulator between the station and lift otherwise this is garbage
  5. http://www.rockymtnconstruction.com/ibox-track.php An explanation of Topper Track can be found under the "Services" tab.
  6. Well yea... When you hit a kicker at 40+ MPH and actually fly through the air 60-80 feet, yea, I'd say that qualifies as "ejector air". I mean you actually defy gravity and fly through the air. Don't think riding a boat on flat water and coming off your seat an inch is comparable.
  7. That's an interesting idea regarding Navy Pier. Don't think it'll ever happen, but it's a cool idea on paper at least.
  8. That actually is what happens in the playoffs. The 7th umpire on the crew is sitting in NYC watching the game. During the regular season, the Replay Umpire is following just two games. They know when they are about to get called and the wheels are already turning in their heads when they see a play. They know exactly what angles they want to see. The issue comes in when these ideal angles aren't available. The time gets consumed when they need to take "S" & "E" from the 1st replay and "A" & "F" from the 2nd angle to get "S-A-F-E".
  9. LOL..Nobody asked for anything of the ridiculous things you mentioned. So like i said before it is b/c you said so. No I don't believe you over reports. Also, reports on other conversions costs. You were at most a college kid who the hire to run a ride for the summer and they would never tell a minion what the cost was, you're self described inflated importance is laughable. Schoop (Or is it BBD this week?), can you drop the act?
  10. Agreed. As I said earlier, it's hard to shake the idea of a conventional construction timeline. That's your baseline and it's hard to alter it to fit the timeframe things are currently progressing along at.
  11. Clearly this "being nicer" thing isn't working out so screw it. Based on his sign up date, post count and the fact that he finds a way to mention me in just about every single post he makes it's obvious that Wisco Woody is a troll, probably someone who was banned before who signed up pretty much exclusively to express his butthurt over the fact that I exist. This has been especially true ever since I completely schooled him in the Cedar Point thread over his typical enthusiast bullsh*t rant about how the park should only build rides that he specifically likes as if the world revolves around him. As always, stay mad. I don't know what this little witch hunt you're on is about but I don't particularly care either. You've had a toxic attitude from day one. I've tried to be nice, tried to laugh it off and diffuse it over and over again but it's obvious that you just enjoy starting problems and being an a**hole. Nobody was talking to you. Piss off. And sorry Larry, I tried. I feel I should apologize on behalf of any SFGAm fans that are present on this board because Wisco, Eugene (or Schoop or whatever he's calling himself this week), and others came onto TPR as a result of an anti TPR thread on a SFGAm message board. Unfortunately our dumpster fire over there spilled over to here and the stupidity proliferated here...
  12. Me too, but now I just punch myself in the side of the head while I'm riding so that I can be reminded of the good ol' days. You're lucky... Seems like some people need to get into chains, whips, hot candle wax, ect. to get the job done it seems
  13. Post Count Argument... I remember the 1st time I was on a message board! **grabs popcorn** Bill doesn't post to post. He's always giving his opinions (which he's allowed to do so, just as you are), but his opinions are helpful, insightful, and aren't viewed as being pulled out of his arse. I'd wager most people around these parts see his posts as insightful and add to the forum. Other posters, however aren't viewed as positively... It's how message boards work, whether you like it or not...
  14. I'm in the 2017 camp, but with an *... Why can't CP have their cake and eat it too? I see them possibly opening the ride late in 2017. Maybe opening with Haunt. Play it like SF does and say that a 2018 pass gets you Haunt 2017 and the New/Improved ________ Streak/Hawk. It's quirky marketing, but could bring a significant increase on Friday & Sunday traffic. And then you would still get a push on 2018 passes, similar to what you get when a ride is coming. Bill makes some valid points, but I just can't shake the timeline. 19 months of SBNO Streak is a long ass time for standard construction. Has any modern ride taken that long without delays or a deliberate, prototype/R&D type build?
  15. Welcome to TPR eguenecd!! I know this comes back every time someone mentions something about the 150th in 2020, but do people honestly think that they won't do anything big to celebrate the ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTIETH anniversary of the second oldest theme park in the US? Yes. That is exactly what is going to happen. It will be just another year of development. Nothing more than maybe some special Coke cups and maybe a banner or three.
  16. No. If you do this you create a DC area, now you have Justice League, Dark Knight, and Superman out of place. And this is the exact thing you're complaining about... This doesn't fix anything and is a solution to a thing that is only a problem to enthusiasts. Justice League was put out of place b/c of pure bad design. Then they tried the silly notion of the Metroplis area nonsense, which consists of 1 attraction. This would be a start to correcting horrible themed areas i the past. Mardi Gras has been essentially stripped of rides and needs retheming. They could extend consistent themes and just link previous Mardi Gras and Yankee to 1 giant DC area. Giant DC Area: Superman Dark Knight Retheme King Chaos to "Two Face" Add Zamperla Endeavor (Catwoman Whip or Lasso of Truth)to previous Mardi Gras Area Add Zamperla Hawk possibly too as it doesn't take much space Combine the above with Joker - 4D coming in 2017 Batman - V2 - paint it electric blue and call it Mr. Freeze Yankee Clipper - retheme to Penguin Slide Whilygig - relocate it to County Fair in 2018 or 19, replace with Skyscreamer themed Catwoman Whip or Wonderwoman Riddler's Revenge - Zamperla Discovery added in 2018 or 2019 in the area near the flumes/picnic area. The only DC ride out of place would be Justice League. Eventually if they takeout maybe Dark Knight in mid 2020's they could add a launch coaster extending from its' site running behind Raging Rapids. By then Raging Rapids may have run it's life cycle, so a launch coaster could take it's space with that of Dark Knight. Name the launch coaster the Flash. So 1/3 the park becomes DC Land? Yea, not happening. Also, do you think that Six Flags will shell out the extra $$$ to use ALL the DC characters? There are limits to that ya know... It's totally possible and they already have done something like it at SFOT. 7 DC themed rides in Gotham City..Batman, Batwing, The Joker, Riddler Revenge, Catwoman Whip, Harley Quinn, and Mr Freeze. It's one of the most popular areas of the park. They have 3 more DC themed rides..Aquaman Splash and Justice League both in the same area, leaving only Superman Tower not with another DC themed ride. Even the 3 rides not in Gotham City are very close by it and on the same side ofthe park. So having a large part of 1 side of the park DC themed rides is not good design and theme continuity. GP don't care. GP pays the bills. Six Flags cares about things the GP cares about. Having a DC Land won't add money to the coffers. If the GP gave a rats ass about themes the park would be a very different place and would have been for the past 20 years. If you want theming, go to Disney.

  19. The gravestones are a nod to the history of a park. Theme parks are an industry where evolution is a key element. Out with the old/in with the new if you will. It's a way to remember the path a park has been down. As for rides: Goliath, Batman (the original), and Raging Bull are my Top 3.
  20. That's some good investigation right there! Can't get anything by the cop
  21. you can dream of. but it is easier to put your picture with the words: I can not enter Am I the only one that has no clue what this means??? Where are all these fu%ked up people coming from lately? I mean there have been some posts that just leave me literally scratching my head...are these people completely uneducated, on drugs....or both? And just so people don't take this out of context, I am obviously not talking about Robb! Some of the posts are from posters on a SFGAm message board. Wisco Woody, Schoup, and Rolling Coasting are all regulars from there. They got a bug up their ass about TPR sometime in August when a "Roast of Robb Alvey" thread was created for whatever reason. That got people over there thinking about TPR and several posters showed up over here as a result. Schoup was a pure troll account over there and was subsequently banned. As a result we now have to deal with his asinine posts.
  22. I mean, I want my home park to have a $30 million budget for rides too... But yea, it ain't happening. Just once I want some of the few remaining SFGAm fans around here to have realistic expectations and insightful speculation. Enough with the Coaster Nerd wet dreams.
  23. I'm wondering if maybe CP is going to try for a late season opening here. They can use this to bolster 2018 pass sales, but also spike attendance in late Summer 2017... Probably unlikely, but just a thought. I just can't see major construction going on without an explanation.
