  1. More launch track going up right now. Looks like its time for more supports...
  2. According to the webcam, the first set of launch supports have been installed!
  3. This ride is the real deal. It does things wooden coasters shouldn't do, it feels so wrong! Unreal maneuvers, extreme airtime, hangtime during the inversions...Its a top 5 coaster for sure!
  4. First riders are meeting at 9am for the opening. I would imagine the GP will ride after 10am. Weather will be in the 70s and Spring Break for many towns in the area so I would bet the park will be somewhat congested.
  5. ^Thanks Robb. I didnt see them on the Disney Store website so I assumed there wasnt anything other than the clothing. I did expect to see more items like the princess dresses, barbie dolls, etc. I am sure the chinese are working overtime to get it out since there will be a Sofia series come January.
  6. Same thing in our house Elissa. Caroline has gone ape over Sofia and Doc. I cannot believe Disney did not prepare any merchandise for Sofia! Usually they are pretty good about having the merchandise out and ready like they did with Wreck-It Ralph. I guess Sofia was an afterthought. Oh well, she will have to settle for Doc this Christmas!
  7. Another photo of him here: http://www.buffalonews.com/city/article482793.ece War veteran or not, NO WAY he should have been allowed to ride. Not even close!
  8. Elissa, I see the 2012 fall sailings posted on vacationstogo. We were also on the Dream in early February and we had a fantastic time. We are looking at a 7 night cruise on the Magic this October!
  9. Physics day has been falling on the same day as West Coast Bash since I started the event 8 years ago. It makes NO DIFFERENCE since they have a set curriculum most of the day. I would imagine the "enthusiast day" could potentially add maybe 50-100 people to the event since most of the enthusiasts would already be at the park anyways. Since Solace was postponed, I would think that number could be lower. Nothing to worry about guys... Chris
  10. If you are looking for priceline or hotwire help in getting a good deal: http://www.betterbidding.com
  11. Is there a fairly new B&M coaster in South Carolina he can scoop up real cheap?
  12. Has Cedar Fair filled Jack's position yet? Cedar Fair, give Jay a call before someone else does!
  13. If this is true, this is really unfortunate for all parties involved. I think the one that will suffer the most is Six Flags. Jay and his team did a fantastic job in one of the hardest markets in the country. I am sure someone will scoop Jay up soon as he is one of the best in the business.
  14. It is the whole corporate office. They have office space in Dallas and their IT division has been there anyways. That's definitely going to save them lots of money.
  15. Jacqueline Mae Goldberg- I REALLY hope you can get that money they owe you but something tells me they will be relocating their base operations to Mississippi! Chase 'em girl!
  16. http://www.fox41.com/global/story.asp?s=12647373 Here is a little more info. The Funeral is set for Thursday at 10:30am. His kids are Lauren, 22, Leah, 19, and William, 16
  17. It was nice to meet you and the mrs Saturday night! I am really hoping the TL trains improve the Voyage experience. In the two days at the park I rode it a grand total of 1 time. However I did ride the Raven 6 times (most coaster rides of the trip for me). Natalee was so tired, she didn't ride one coaster! Wildebeest is the read deal though. Totally craps on Master Blaster!
  18. ^^ They are in a different position as the park isn't open yet. I would bet that testing has already began on both coasters and they are well on their way to the right wheel compounds.
  19. Here's an analogy that might get through to people: You have a sports car with Z rated tires (very soft). You regularly drive 90+ miles an hour in a hot climate causing you to have to shell out $1,500 every 3 months because you are wearing them out. What do you do? Do you continue to burn money or do you drive a little slower and figure out which tires last the longest for your driving habits? Keep in mind that these wheels could be THOUSANDS per set so in essence they could be blowing 20-40K every time they replace the wheels on one train. Wouldn't you trim the ride too until you could figure out the best wheel compounds needed for the Virginia climate and the ride's 90+ speed?
  20. ^^^B&M usually ships multiple wheel compounds to every new install to have them tested to find the right ones for each ride. This happens with EVERY coaster installation. There are so many variables to account for like heat and humidity, its impossible to figure it out using computer models. Real world testing must take place.
