  1. And as a Star Trek fan, I wish I got to experience BORG Assimilator instead of Nighthawk.


    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. Anyone else find it funny that USO had world-class dueling coasters,then removed the dueling element from them before getting rid of the rides completely and now are putting a new dueling coaster in their new park?


    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. If you name your child after a roller coaster you're enabling bullying.


    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. Firefox for mobile. That’s weird, I’ve never had an issue with it and it’s only this thread but it’s also not a very popular browser so it’s really a non issue. I blew the dust off of safari and it worked. Sorry for bringing that up now that I realized the issue since I’m pretty sure it’s an issue limited to me and like six other people.


    I've also had problems seeing this thread on my laptop, were I use Firefox, but it works fine on my phone, where I use chrome. I've also noticed embedding issues with Twitter on other sites when I use Firefox, but apparently it works fine for other people? :shrug:


    Anyway, this whole trip looks amazing. Even without the parks, Japan looks like a place I could explore for weeks and never get bored.
