  1. Yeah, I meant to mean a full scale coaster. Jaguar has a 48" height restriction, so I guess we can consider it an "adult" coaster.
  2. Hello everyone, What's the lamest first drop on a coaster that you have experienced? Mine is Jaguar at Knott's.
  3. You must have a very loose definition for "great". Seeing as how more than one or more has been built every year since its debut proves otherwise. Hmm--using this logic, Vekoma Boomerangs and SLCs must be the greatest rides ever created. I'm not a big fan of the Wing coasters, although I did enjoy Wild Eagle at Dollywood (much more that X-Flight or Gatekeeper), and I'm looking forward to riding Thunderbird someday. I do agree that Wild Eagle is a really enjoyable and re-ridable coaster. Gatekeeper, on the other hand, is less impressive.
  4. Consider yourself lucky then. I think that my brain still hasn't quite recovered from a lot of the posts that have been made since the rumors began circulating about Valravn all the way through the Raptor incident and the official announcement of Valravn. It's possible that mental scars could have been left. At times, I had to hit the back button & pinch myself to make sure that I wasn't trapped inside the Darien Lake thread. I think CP should buy Darien Lake's old Barracuda Bay slide complex! Who cares if th supports were custom fit and the slides were 20+ years old! It's the DarienLaker way of things! (But seriously... TPR needs a Barracuda Bay filter) Nah. CP desperately needs a Gerstlauer spinning coaster. 420/4 model of course. Maybe they can fit it inside the Good Time Theater?
  5. Considering that Splashin' Safari is nowhere near the parking lot (plus Raven and Legend are in the way), I seriously doubt that will ever happen.
  6. I doubt those other movies were shoved down your throat as much as Frozen's presence at the parks. I'm completely fine with Frozen being in the parks, like the other Disney movies such as Lion King and Snow White, but I don't want to be suffocated by Frozen poo poo when I visit the parks.
  7. Frozen is found on merchandise, parades, balloons, fireworks, etc. throughout both parks, which can be rather irritating. It is quite sad that Aladdin is leaving, though it is understandable why it is leaving due to the very long life of the show as well as Aladdin being a Disney cash cow that is long gone from the general public's mind.
  8. I wouldn't necessarily say that they age poorly, as with proper maintenance, GCIs can run relatively smooth for a long period of time, especially when compared to Gravity Group or CCI manufactured coasters. (Not that I have anything against CCI and Gravity Group...)
  9. Holiday World is large enough where they should have the queues open until the end of the day. If Six Flags can do it, HW can do it. If scheduling is an issue, then make the employees' hours end at a later time, further from closing.
  10. Hell, 80% of the content on that channel is a bunch of nonsense that teenager makes up.
  11. The problem is the ride is under 100 feet tall. Unless they added a solid chunk onto the lift, that hill would need to be much, much shorter than that because there is already a raised curve before the airtime hill. The best it could be with that in mind is a bunny hop (in terms of size) for ejector, but there are already multiple opportunities for bunny hills later in the course. I'm with you on wanting airtime (which I'm sure will be delivered regardless), but I think its almost too obvious that this might be the centerpiece inversion for the ride. There's nothing wrong with a long zero-G stall. I really enjoyed Twisted Colossus' stall, it was one of the best parts of the ride. I thoroughly enjoyed the stall on Goliath. I'd love to see more. I agree. Goliath had a really nice stall too. I really don't understand why people are against RMC having inversions on their coasters as those are some of the best moments on the ride.

You should probably try READING the forum before you post: http://themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1626731#p1626731 One week ban for not bothering to pay attention. May I have a one week ban too, please? This has been a very stressful week for me, so this might calm me down a bit. I really love TPR, but I don't feel like I'm completely experiencing this website, so I just want to try it out a little bit, see how I like it. I don't want a full experience of a permanent ban, though, I would not like that. I would really appreciate if you fulfilled my request. I may join Club TPR afterwards.
  13. Coaster Studios videos are only informative to those with a brief knowledge of amusement parks. Everything he talks about is widely known enthusiast knowledge. So, yes, it is pointless.
  14. I've been on Diamondback and Nitro and there was barely any airtime on either one of them.
  15. If you want to see pointless and unrealistic 5-year park plan predictions, go watch Coaster Studios.
  16. Speaking of sad casinos where maintaining theming is a thing of a past, but hey, it looks so attractive from the interstate (even though it is slowly falling apart...), but hey, at least Desperado is a decent coaster.
  17. Boomerangs are indeed quite an eyecatcher, and do lure many innocent guests.
  18. I, personally, find Batman to be a very good ride, and is one of the better coasters at SFMM. It can run like a bat out of hell in hot weather, so at least it gives some reason to visit SFMM on those unreasonably hot days, when you suffer from extreme dehydration and intense drowsiness...
