  1. This one sure reads like it's Tony running the account. It's almost bursting with snark. (See how I'm being good and playing by the rules here?)
  2. You must have been a big fan of Boblo's Skystreak and its unusual "low flat" element. Check it out below at 1:23 [youtu_be] [/youtu_be] I only went to Boblo once as a kid ages ago. I don't remember the ""low flat" being anything special; pretty anti-climactic, actually. My first coaster, right there !
  3. Because they're .jpg files. It would have to be a video file in order for it to have sound.
  4. If Cedar Fair wanted to prevent anybody from seeing this roller coaster during the off season maybe they should have built it back in the woods at Kings Island instead of right on Lake Erie.
  5. I would like to see a hybrid of a polercoaster and a dive coaster that had an actual drop that was a lot closer to its height and a more spread out layout. It would be cool if it had multiple observation decks, one really close to the top of the lift hill where you could watch the reactions of the riders looking down at the mighty first drop.
  6. Or maybe RMC Mean Streak will be their new dark ride. They'll hide that beautiful structure in a butt ugly beige airplane hangar just like they used for Disaster Transport
  7. I'd rather ride Wildcat than Avalanche Run/Disaster Transport any day.
  8. In its last few years, it seemed like DT got its longest lines when the park was packed AND the weather was hot (the queue being air conditioned helped) The poor capacity of the ride also contributed to the longer lines Yes, I've heard the trains were supposed to be shorter, which would have made for a more intense ride, but due to capacity concerns they had to be lengthened. One reason it was such a dud.
  9. It used to close in the rain too because the roof/coverings were so full of holes. Seriously, there were plants growing on it. Wow, that must have been in later years. I definitely remember a couple of times I rode it while it was raining in the 90s. The more people reminisce about DT the better Gatekeeper looks...
  10. Disaster Transport was at least something you could ride when it was raining, though you'd have to get there quick cause the line would quickly stack up. There was that and the IMAX theater. What does CP have for rainy times now? The arcade? If you live near any big city that should be something you can easily find back home anyway. It'll be nice when a new dark ride that's not Intamin bobsleds makes it's way to CP.
  11. Oh man! I forgot that people were batting around beach balls in that line when I went, too. Thanks for sharing
  12. I'm enjoying these Magnum reminiscings. I was a freshman in high school when it debuted and man, did that thing seem tall. I used to absolutely love Magnum, but when I rode near the back last year it had gotten a little too herky jerky for me. I missed the strobe lights in the tunnels, too. I guess they had to remove them cause they might cause seizures in certain people?
  13. This is going back probably 30 or so years but Space Mountain at Disney World's Magic Kingdom. Other kids had really hyped it to me and some of the effects were kind of cool but I found the ride itself rather lame.
  14. Isn't the park going to have to announce it then? It seems assinine to not be upfront about what they're doing when there's thousands of people filing by every day. They don't necessarily have to reveal the whole layout, and they can still build anticipation by not doing that, but how can they not say RMC is revamping the old Mean Streak structure into a hybrid?
