  1. I'm headed to Dollywood tomorrow with the family. We planned on Sat but it's going to be rainy so we opted for Friday instead. Really hoping Lightening Rod pulls through for us!! If not, still going to be a blast as always.
  2. Hello coaster friends I'm visiting Busch Gardens Tampa and Sea World Orlando from Oct 18 - 21st. Does anyone know how the crowds usually are this time of year for both parks? For BGT, I'm sure the Halloween night time event will be busy - interested in knowing about the daytime crowds. Many thanks in advance!!

  4. ^^ There were people in them! The train in front finally just went
  5. Theres two trains that have been sitting at the top Valravn's lift for a while... hard to tell if there's people in them though. Hopefully people aren't stuck up there.
  6. Excited to find out if they'll do any drastic layout changes or mirror the old.
  7. Ah that makes sense - that gap looked pretty crazy though - was wondering how the engineers could explain/justify the that one!
  8. Ughhh I can't wait to ride this in the summer!! Coming for you SWO and BGT!!!
  9. I have to admit, I think the fan made NL2 POV is MUCH better than the official...
  10. It wouldn't be a real forum if it wasn't visited by a troll every now and then - I'm gonna choose to stop feeding them though - it only makes them hungrier
  11. Wow! What a Negative Nancy you are! This will not be "the worst coaster at any Busch Park" by a long shot. I think you might be "the most ungrateful guest at any Busch Park" though...
  12. Exactly - kinda shakes up the faith we put into safety measures, that nothings going to go wrong. Hope all the injured are OK.
  13. If you have to have a disclosure for your ride, that you might die if you "don't jump far enough" then the ride shouldn't be in existence and certainly doesn't belong at a fair. She wasnt on a BASE jumping excursion for goodness sake (where great risk is implied), she was at a FAIR!! Come on guys - the insensitivity in here is palpable..
  14. I think that lack of failsafe is exactly what is wrong with the ride itself. There are ways to design the apparatus so that this failsafe is there. Freaking out is part of using amusement attractions. There is stress involved, especially among people not used to traveling all over for different rides and thrills. You can't expect everyone to behave in perfectly rational ways when under such stress. People bite off more than they can chew on rides all the time, or get egged on to ride by friend/family. It's the job the ride design to take this into account and make the experience safe. Th
  15. There might be hope for that based on an interview Mark Rose did for a local Tampa news outlet. He acknowledged that it was an option they would entertain.
  16. I'm so jealous! You got to talk to Mark Rose?!? That's so awesome - I've always wanted to pick his brain!
  17. That is strange - wonder if it's just a fluke mistake made by the artist of the concept art? EDIT - actually, after checking the virtual POV - it only has 7 rows there too so it would seem that's what it will be (unless they messed up in the video AND the artwork).
  18. Snapped a few more pics of Slidezilla on my walk today, as well as a couple of the park skyline from the trail. Slidezilla's pretty much complete now, at least as far as the major components so it shouldn't be long before it opens!
  19. I disagree with this statement. Both Kraken and Manta, particularly the former, are tough acts to follow. +1 Manta kicks my bootay every time! That pretzel loop is insane!
  20. A member spotted bluish/purplish track on a truck near Knoxville. He thought it might have been for Dollywood but he noted the truck was going in the opposite direction. Looks like it was actually for Mako after all!
