  1. Stuff like this just makes me cringe. The dude in (Link removed because it's stupid) basically harassed one of the ride ops at Predator (and even tells on himself like it's something okay to do), and then calls it "racist" when they confronted him about it. Ride ops should never be harassed. No one should receive unsolicited flirtations when they're doing their job. And, for gosh sake, it ain't racist to call it out when it happens. The dude who made this video is actually disgusting.

  2. Wouldn't it make more sense to keep the park open since it will still print at least some money for them? I doubt EPR will be closing the park down.

     

    As for what crash1984 said about ROS, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. I absolutely despise the idea of ROS leaving, sure... but it is an Intamin mega coaster from 1999 and we all saw what happened to Volcano. With that being said, why isn't the same being said about Superman Ride of Steel at Six Flags America and Superman the Ride and Six Flags New England? Is Six Flags Darien Lake just cheaper with their budget than those parks? Why aren't their rumors about their versions leaving their parks? Anyways, I'm hopeful that Ride of Steel stays at SFDL, but it wouldn't shock me either if it leaves... and that the same happens at the other parks too. These early Intamin coasters have seen better days it appears.

  3. Aparently, Six Flags over Georgia has an odd new camera policy. However, that's not the main reason as to why I'm sharing this video.  Later in the video it appears as though the ride ops are not exactly the best at what they do. They apparently endangered guests at least twice throughout the day the YouTuber was visiting SFOG. Is this a consistent problem or an isolated incident?

    Mod Edit: Sorry, we don’t allow videos from this channel on our site. Thanks.

  4. Just for fun, I'm going to post a bit of a strange rumor here that will probably never happen that I heard about on YouTube. I'm sure the conversation should make this worth it. 😛

     

    Anyways, there's a bit of a rumor about the possibility that Scream from Six Flags Magic Mountain may get relocated to another Six Flags park. Will it go to Six Flags Darien Lake, or more likely another Six Flags park like Six Flags Mexico?

  5. So for those who have experienced both, how has Tantrum aged compared to Untamed at Canobie Lake? Is it a potential headbanger? My wife will want to know for next time we get there. Thanks!

    Lapbar only on Tantrum, unless something explainable or really strange happened to it in the year of shut down it was perfectly smooth in 2019, a very nice small Euro Fighter. The two really rough coasters at the park are Predator (if you're in the front it really isn't all that bad but anywhere else is unpleasant) and Mind Eraser, but that's to be expected.

     

    Yeah, DL was my "home park" for a lot of my life. I am 33 now, but my family started camping there when in 97 when I was 10 and Mind Eraser was brand new. That three year stretch of Mind Eraser, Nightmare, Boomerang, and Superman is what made me a coaster nerd. I put home park in quotes because it was a four hour drive on a good day, but we went every summer for at least a few days. My parents would relax in the campground and I would usually bring a friend to explore the park with. If not, I'd at least drag my little brother or whatever cousin came with us around. It was ideal for everyone.

     

    My kid is ten now and we have only been once since he was born, and he was pretty small. I don't remember how old he was/what year, exactly, but he was kiddie ride young and I remember having fun on that stupid but charming moose ride they added. It was probably 2013, 2014. We were supposed to go back this year for a day on a road trip but it didn't pan out for obvious reasons.

     

    Predator is still by memory the roughest experience I have ever had on a coaster. I remember at one point getting very bad chest pains on it even though I was probably like... 15? It was an awful ride, but like you said front seat did make it more tolerable. The sad thing is I remember loving it in the very late nineties, very early 00s. I don't know if I just started growing up a little and losing tolerance for the roughness or if it just fell apart. And a SLC is gonna SLC.

     

    I am a proponent of RMC Predator in a big way. I'd like to see the SLC torn down and replaced eventually too, but that won't happen any time soon. As for the rest of the lineup, I don't have complaints. MotoCoaster was cute. Superman will always have a soft spot in my heart and I think at least as of my 2013/14/whenever ride it had become a little underrated. It and its clone are still good rides. Viper low key is one of the better original era Arrow loopers left standing. A Boomerang is obligatory and you probably can't do anything better with that footprint anyway, at least not with a coaster. Tantrum was a great edition on paper to round out the lineup too, though I haven't experienced it yet. Glad to hear it is lapbars only.

    So, I assume you have been on Mind Eraser when it was new? What was it like back then? Did it feel the same? Also, did anything else change since it first opened?
