  1. Wow! This ride looks absolutely amazing! If only I had the money for an overseas trip...
  2. Wolverine Wildcat at Michigan's Adventure. Zero airtime. It's also would make expansion of the park much easier. It's in the way of what appears to be the eventual plans to connect the 'loop' around the pond in the middle of the park.
  3. It's interesting looking at the size of the foundation for Windseeker compared to the one at Cedar Point. High water tables make life difficult.
  4. Considering the fact that it went down a small pipe, timing the drop wouldn't be very accurate at all. Every time the coin would hit the wall of the pipe, significant deceleration would occur, meaning it would seem like the coin fell a greater distance than it actually did if you were to calculate using a basic kinematic equation. Just a thought
  5. What's with the extra parts on some of the supports? It looks like they're there to attach a catwalk or something. Anyone have any idea what their purpose is?
  6. That's really a shame for Six Flags. Actually posting a profit, and still having to deal with this. After all the company has gone through over the years, this seems rather cruel.
  7. FYI...for those who want to know... This is more of a running joke arguement we've had for a while. We really do want to know the real answer. I figured there's no better place than here to find out.
  8. Funny thing... Over the last four months, my girlfriend and I have been having this debate involving Space Mountain at The Magic Kingdom. After the ride, when you are riding up the moving floor, there used to be a recording of a guy saying "In the future, messages will be sent ________ beams of light!" Our debate is... I think he says "through beams of light." She thinks it's "on beams of light." Over the holidays, we were in Orlando and rode Space Mountain. We thought our great debate would finally be settled. Wrong! The recording is no longer played. Please vote in the poll. We're betting $50 on it. PLEASE BE HONEST Also, if anyone happens to have a recording to prove who's correct, that would be amazing!
  9. These trains look amazing. I can't wait to see a video of one of these in action. I'm confident they'll be great. Random Note: I just listened to their second poscast and I can brag that my question I sent to the mailbag was the first to ever be answered on gravitycast....aka, I'm Alex from Michigan. I feel special
  10. Can someone explain to me how purple fits in with the Superman theme? Blue and red actually fit the theme of the ride... If it fits a theme, who cares if it's red? This makes me think of Mr. Freeze. Since when is ice dark blue and red? The original colors fit the ride. The new ones don't. Medusa......there aren't any colors that fit a Medusa theme. They can paint it whatever they want and nobody will think twice.
  11. Conneaut Lake has/had one. It had been SBNO for years even when the park was open.
  12. Why is that portion of one turn also painted yellow? ...or is it just cuz of the angle?
  13. Top Thrill Dragster is a one trick pony. It's a blast, but only for a short amount of time. Maverick has launches, inversions, and other amazing elements. In terms of reridability, Maverick easily takes the cake.
  14. I hate white castle. I think they would be a lot better if they didn't steam them. They're just too soggy.
