  1. The colors were cooler and the Borg Sphere was a nice bit of theming, but otherwise, it was just as awful then as it is now. Carowinds really got shafted by Paramount, but somehow they got Top Gun/Afterburn out of it, so it wasn't a total loss. And for Kings Dominion, the launch coaster trifecta of Volcano, Flight of Fear, and Backlot Stunt Coaster are/were awesome (Sadly, I never got to ride Hypersonic.)
  2. I chuckled at the irony of this too, but I know there were other factors at play with the Dragons removal. Is it irony, or is it Universal recognizing how much people loved having dueling coasters and deciding to bring back the experience in a new ride that's less dangerous and more importantly, less in the way of Harry Potter?
  3. A name like Maverick Taron or Oscar kids would never put it together with a coaster. A name like Walter, Alan or Werner would never be associated with a coaster A name like Maverick would still get them bullied, even if other kids didn't know it came from a roller coaster.
  4. MiA should kill two birds with one stone and get a Larson Looper.
  5. A shuttle element seems odd with Tempesto already in the park, but I'm certainly not going to turn my nose up at any Intamin goodness if this ends up being true.
  6. Because... Intamin. Just for the record, the other Intamin had absolutely zero downtime the day I visited the park. So... Because... Launched Intamin.
  7. Please don't take away my hope. Plot twist: Firehawk replaces Nighthawk and Nighthawk gets scrapped
  8. "Stir completely around the pot" sounds an awful lot like loops that wrap around other stretches of track.
  9. Maybe it's just because I spent a lot of time reading Jack London as a kid, but I thought the Yukon gold rush was a pretty famous event?
  10. Love the creativity of the layout compared to other dive coasters, love the name, love the colors. The burnt orange is a lot more fitting here than it was for Valravn. And I'm a sucker for interactive moments where guests walk under/through coaster elements, so I really like how the path takes you under that massive helix.
  11. Wow. This is awesome news. Here's hoping more theme parks follow suit.
