  1. Yeah, it's a good resource, but it isn't quite set up as I'd prefer. I know I have modifying options, but it's a bit... how do I put this... confusing? I'm not 100% sure what all the letter filters mean.
  2. Fixed; found a couple others that I forgot. After checking, it's the complete collection now. I'll see how successful I can be in finding alpine slides. They aren't credits however, I'm not 100% sure how well that would work...
  3. Hey everyone! Out of boredom, I've made some Google Maps that are good reference for enthusiasts. Here you go! Alpine Coaster Map (for every Wiegand and Brandauer mountain coaster) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1tmO6a9VAtNn4dUNm_grAXF_qexS8VSKJ&usp=sharing Vekoma Death Machine Map (basically color codes every type of boomerang (standard, GIB, invertigo) and SLC) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JDe_kYFtN_3PDfpEVFx0RShvtNIoqJox&usp=sharing Current map projects - Manufacturer maps that are color coded by model (unless there are no models) Any other map ideas? Leave your ideas below!
  4. Goliath at Six Flags Great America, closing evening... I'll never forget those 7 rides just over a month ago! This is the only photo I can find anywhere online of Goliath at night. Oh yeah, 3 0 0 T H P O S T ! ! !
  5. I rank the clones individually, so here's my list. 1. Banshee 2. Batman The Ride (GAm) 3. Batman The Ride (OG) (Only here because it's one of two Batman clones I've ridden backwards, the other being the GAm one at my home park; I prefer Batman backwards for sure) 4. Chinese Fireball 5. Batman The Ride (StL) 6. Hungarian Horntail 7. Batman The Ride (MM) (This was just more sluggish than the other clones when I rode) 8. Raptor (not sure what happened here, but this was really rattly when I rode. Not quite GateKeeper, but that's the reason it's the lowest. It's also the least memorable for me)
  6. I think that was the idea behind the ride... not to have good pacing, and have good hangtime...
  7. Bump, I guess. Never updated my rankings after the 2017 season. 4. Goliath - While that first drop is my favorite of any RMC, and it's just a really fun, intense, well paced ride with two fantastic inversions, there are only 3 moments of ejector air, and the layout is kinda basic. I'm also fairly used to it because it's at my home park. Still, an excellent ride, and a coaster that I always ride and come off happy, no matter how unbearable the lines are 3. Twisted Colossus - My 100th coaster. While not a disappointment, I feel it's a bit overrated. The layout doesn't feel totally complete, hitting the brake run on either side after both of them really get going. Yeah, there's a ton of airtime, but the quality of the airtime isn't as strong as the other three RMCs. Despite that, the first drop is excellent, dueling on the ride is really an experience to remember, I love the dueling interactions, and it really is something you just want to ride again and again. I do wish I got more rides on it. 2. Storm Chaser - What a surprise this was. The airtime is probably the strongest I've ever experienced, the first drop has great hangtime in the front and great whip in the back, it's on the intensity levels of X2 (seriously, the sheer aggressiveness is like a car crash, but one you want to be in), the pacing is pretty much perfect, and is something that I easily rode over and over again when I was at Kentucky Kingdom. I don't see at all how this is one of the weaker RMCs. 1. Lightning Rod - You probably saw this coming. The airtime, the speed, the launch.. all incredible. My first ride was incredible, but I rode it in the back row later in the afternoon... The quad down is IN-SAN-ITY. Hopefully, if I ride it again, the trims at the top of the launch won't ruin my good memories of it. I would describe it more, but words are useless. Ride it yourself, and see what you think.
  8. Thanks everyone for the help. I'm really taking it all into consideration. My friend helped me make this. Any thoughts? Friday evening - Start driving Saturday - Kennywood Sunday - Hersheypark Monday - Dorney and Knoebels (I know what people said, but if Dorney does take two hours, then I should have a good enough amount of time at Knoebels) Tuesday - Lake Compounce, Quassy, and SFNE (It sounds ambitious, but I'm just going to be knocking out Compounce and Quassy, and it saves time to fit in SFNE) Wednesday - Six Flags Great Adventure Thursday - Washington DC Culture Day and Six Flags America in the evening Friday - Kings Dominion Saturday - Carowinds (no BGW because it's fairly out of the way and expensive) Sunday - Drive home
  9. Apparently there's this massive clearing behind Apocalypse for a 2019 coaster. Possibly big enough for a Giga.
  10. https://rcdb.com/988.htm Why was the height lowered over 30 feet?
  11. Okay, so I have 8 days open for a trip. Two weekends (one at the start, one at the end), and the 5 days in between the two weekends. Depending on where the parks are located, it could range from 7-9 days, because of driving days. I live in West Chicago, if that helps. My current plan is this. Saturday 1 - Drive to Pittsburgh Sunday 1 - Kennywood, and drive to Hershey in the evening Monday - Hersheypark Tuesday - Dorney and Knoebels, whilst still lodging in Hershey Wednesday - Lake Compounce and Quassy Thursday - Six Flags New England Friday - Six Flags Great Adventure Saturday 2 - Six Flags America for like 2 hours in the morning, then Kings Dominion the rest of the day Sunday 2 - Drive home from Doswell - - - - - This is a plan that I could easily do, but if there is a better way to hit up "better" coasters, or a wider range of the best coasters in the country that can be hit up in 7-9 days. If you want to see which parks I am interested in, basically everything not on my coaster count, except Cedar Point (for Steel Vengeance and the missing credits) and Six Flags Over Georgia (for Twisted Cyclone and the missing credits) if they fit in the trip somehow.

  12. One of these years I'll get down there... I feel like I miss out on so much up here in Illinois.
  13. So sorry for the bump, but did you guys ride Velociraptor, the Mack Launch?
