  1. Including the theming, Cobra's Curse is 80 feet tall. Something like that would be a good fit for Ireland, and fill a major height restriction gap in BGW's lineup.
  2. ...is this a new autocorrect a la Full Throttle? Edit: Aha, I see it is!
  3. Call me a masochist, I think I305 is pure fun and totally re-rideable. To each their own... I do too, normally. But if I were already feeling a bit iffy, I probably wouldn't want to do a lot of re-rides either. Thankfully, KD is an awesome, well-balanced park with a ton of other great rides if you're not feeling up for an I305 marathon.
  4. Yeah, especially since people would just end up shortening it to Copperhead anyway.
  5. Considering how Cedar Fair seems to actually want to get back to a Carolinas theme for Carowinds, a copperhead theme makes a lot of sense. The name "Copperhead Strike" does feel a bit awkward, though.
  6. You can still just get there at opening and get in a couple rides before the line builds up.
  7. I mean, anyone over 5'8" would probably notice a marked improvement if they switched to new Vekoma trains, but more Arrow trains? Feh.
  8. Battle for Erie? Did Busch Gardens get their order mixed up with one meant for Cedar Point?
  9. With a name like Mardi Gras Hangover, they really should have waited until today to announce it.
  10. Wait, so if the rumors are true, then SFGAM's original plan was to put a hurricane-themed coaster in their Mardi Gras section? and it took yet another devastating hurricane for them to realize this was a terrible idea?
  11. I mean, technically a Hurler conversation would be a steel-hybrid anyways... it will be interesting to see if/when Hurler at Carowinds gets converted if it would be a clone or if RMC & CF would go with something different. Guess it depends how much Carowinds/CF would be willing to invest. My vote would be to remove the steaming pile of s**t that is Nighthawk as use that land for a nice GCI. This park definitely has an interesting future and tons of possibilities. My hope is that they eventually get rid of both Nighthawk and Vortex (scrap the former, ship the latter off to Michigan's Adventure as a floorless) and use that spot for a big steel looper, maybe a wing rider. A GCI would go nicely in the land that's been cleared around the old Whitewater Falls spot.
  12. To complete the set of former Paramount parks, I'll say Carowinds. Being bought by Cedar Fair is easily the best thing that ever happened to them.
  13. They should start adding little plaques commemorating great quotes from Robb's POV videos.
  14. Indeed. Whether their names are Rebel Yell and Ricochet or Racer 75 and Apple Zapple, I'll still primarily think of them as "Those two kind of crappy coasters I have to walk past to get to Twisted Timbers."
  15. Between Apple Zapple and Kiddie Hawk, Cedar Fair is really going all in with the cornball family coaster names. I love it.
  16. [attachment=0]Untitled.jpg[/attachment] ... so that's what this was about? ... are you proud of yourself? I mean, I won't lie and say I'm not entertained.

What is the last coaster that changed your top 10? Griffon. 14. Disney or Universal? Disney. Remember the Dragons! 15. When is the last time you witnessed someone puke at a park? Never. 16. How many new credits did you pick up in 2017? If you don't count, take your best guess... 7 17. You're at Magic Mountain. You have a one hour ERT session on ONE coaster of your choice. You choose... Twisted Colossus. 18. Name a coaster or ride that you passionately dislike. Nighthawk. 19. What is the most amount of money you've spent on a Fast Pass? $0. 20. Skyscreamers or Windseekers? Only ever ridden Windseeker, so... Skyscreamer. 21. What is your most recent B&M credit? Griffon. 22. Best adult beverage at a theme park?

Name the most disappointing ride you took in 2017. Loch Ness Monster. Smooth for an Arrow, but the trains are still cramped, uncomfortable garbage that ruin the ride. 32. Airtime hill or Zero G Roll? Airtime! 33. What is your favorite coaster/ride built before 1970? ... 34. What's worse - splashed by malaria lake flume water or dripped on by chain lift grease? Grease. 35. Name an Intamin coaster on your bucketlist! Wilderness Run! Or maybe Maverick... 36. You just won a 3 day trip with hotel and airfare included. The catch is you have to choose between Disneyworld or Cedar Point. Which do you choose and why? Disney World, because a trip to Cedar Point would be cheaper for me to pay out of my own pocket. 37.

End your post with an aerial shot of one of your top 5 coasters.
  18. Yessss! This name is wonderfully silly, and helps Carowinds maintain the distinction of having three separate roller coasters with an airplane theme. The new colors are also a massive improvement over the old ones. Now would it be too much to ask for a new train that actually makes it rideable?
