  1. Look what Six Flags Over Georgia just posted on their twitter! Beining of reverse cobra roll! WHoop Whoop.
  2. Thanks for the unifying comment. I think we all need to calm down. Let's meditate and RELAX with some A........S.........M...........R
  3. Johnny Cochran? Yes, it's me. Look under our bed tonight. I'll be there, waitin. Unfortunately you won't be able to see me because.........Well........... my skin? Anyways ,my white glowin eyes will stare back at you and you'll wonder, "well ehh, How the hell did you get under there!?" My answer.................................................................................................................................................BLACK POWER
  4. Pick one. You've ridden a bunch of B&Ms and most of the RMC's, right? What do you think? Do you think its easy to assume this won't be as forceful as your average modern B&M? Assumptions are shortcuts. I believe in due process. The same thing that keeps people out of jail should be used to judge coasters.
  5. Fair enough, opinions of coasters are subjective and lots of people love things I don't and vice versa. But I still don't believe in judging a ride before I ride it. Based only on having ridden one RMC (Wicked Cyclone) as well as what everyone says about all the others, my prediction is this will have considerably more force than your average modern B&M. But that's just me. [attachment=0]deargod.gif[/attachment] Welcome to Hell. We offer premium steak and cannibalism is legal. All you have to do to be accepted is commit murder.

  6. No one is accusing you of being a troll because you have a difference of opinion, its HOW you are going about posting those opinions. When someone responds with a legit answer to one of yours posts and you respond asking why they are triggered? That's trolling. When people disagreed with your crack pipe theory of a third lap thats not going to happen, you pull out words like snowflake and ask people if they are triggered. Now you're crying on some "poor me, I had a difference of opinion and no one likes me!" But your posts are there for anyone to see. You know what? you're right. I often forget there are children on here incapable of participating in adult discussions, and replying in straight forward manner makes me incompetent & unable to handle myself. Huh. That's a new one. I'll try to remember that in the future. I'm not here to be likeable, I'm here to talk about rides and coasters. If you don't like me, that's your problem. OMG dude. You misspelled "stapled". That's not an insult, it was a joke. About horses. And stables. Because horses go in stables. I'm so so very sorry that you were not gifted with a sense of humor. Please forgive me. The irony in all of this is how butthurt you're getting over jokes and serious discussion all the while asking if people are snowflakes and why they're triggered. [attachment=0]Cmon-Son.gif[/attachment] You know what? I'm doing to stop debating. I detect a mishap in communication here. Your sense of humor comes of as insulting. I guess you are a bunch of DANK old men. That isn't what i expected, so just know that any DANK comments I make, will sound similar to yours. That of a DANK troll. I will continue to be DANK and you will know that it is JusTaJokes. Doesn't that sound nice? never knew i would find DANKERS here.

  8. You just created a straw man. None of us are claiming B@M coasters aren't good. They just aren't as forceful as RMC coasters. Some of us enjoy of-the wall airtime, especially skinny boys like me. If they don't stable you, you have a lot of room to literally float if you are my size. I have my preferences, but if you are saying B@M is better than RMC, that isn't popular opinion. Wow, I honestly don't know how you got any of that from what I posted. Did you actually read what I posted? I never said anything about B&M coasters not being good. I never even alluded to the idea that B&M is better. I was responding to posts like and addressing the idea that has permeated this thread and other forums that Twisted Cyclone is somehow a lesser coaster due to its size and length. Also, I've never had to be stabled at a park, maybe you should quit horsing around. May I ask why you are so easily triggered? Dude, what the f*ck are you even talking about? You gotta be trollin. Your initial response to my post made absolutely no sense so I explained in further detail what I meant. Now I'm triggered for doing so? Try a little harder. I was willing to give you the benefit of a serious response but now I know for sure you're just trollin. Bye. You insulted me. I'm not horsing around. I state my opinion and you come and make an insult. People in this thread are accusing me of being a troll for simply disagreeing with the post elders of this thread. It' s incompetent of you, a grown man, to insult children because you can't handle yourself. When I came to this website, I was looking for friendly people who could handle differing opinions. Instead I was met with a wave of easily offended coaster enthusiast who swear when someone ask them a simple question. Why are you so easily triggered? I guess what i'm trying to ask is, why do you insult people for disagreeing with you. I saw a comment encouraging your insult. WHY can't you just be a like able person? I'm not "trollin" , i'm asking you if you can be more tolerable!

  11. Last time I got into a debate on this thread, I got called a troll. Anyways the only really forcefully b@m I've bee on is the batman clones. I've grayed out on them. Both Goliath hypers are great(sfog and la ronde) but aint really very forceful. Still haven't been on nitro, but with my experience the company everyone used to love so much more is just "eh" now.
  12. Hopefully they don't go the B@M rout and start making force less coasters. LOL! I hope they know better than to stoop that low. I think they do care about their reputation haha. We thought the same about B@M. WE were wrong. Oopseeeee!
  13. I found your pics! Renderings. *Doesn't include cue house theming package* Via coaster addict twitter.
  14. I'm sorry I didn't back down. That's kind of what people in politics like me do. I guess you guys have established a monopoly over thought. Anyways I think you were looking for this.
  15. I'm sorry. I never knew substantive debate wasn't allowed here. That pg 13 ratting seems a a bit overkill now. How about just pg. Whatever. I'll get the pics.
  16. OH MY GOD! True! Let's lighten up the mood in this thread by posting the funniest gifs ever!
  17. So let me get this straight. The communications directer announces 300 extra feet of track. He says they are adding things to the layout. He then says two months later they are adding turns. There are marked small blocks of wood placed recently(I know this because they aren't painted but they would be if they were already there because they used paint sprayers which can't pain fine details). RMC always places ledgers on small wood blocks as the bolts don't come until hey are almost ready for testing. Tracks are placed on ledgers. I spot these blocks in images on this board on the structure of the third lap. I am now a troll for coming to the logical conclusion that there will be a third lap. That's about as illogical as it gets! since there was a lot of information flying around saying that these mystery additions would add 300ft onto the ride length 300ft - 15ft for additional banking changes 285ft - 60ft in maneuver changes to add track to connect the airtime hill/turn to the helix then we're left with 220ft of track left for the helix, that means that using the formula ((t/3.14=d)x6/5t)= helix, we can assume that said proposed helix would have a diameter of 70ft. This means that each 1/4 of the helix uses roughly 35ft of track to travel forward in the circle, and when we use the formula (220ft/4)-35ft, we are left with 35ft to adjust the angle of the turn (aka turning). Then after calculating the latitude based turns, we can figure out that to have a perfect circle, the train has to travel roughly 58ft to complete 1/4 of the helix. Therefore, based on the 232ft, which is over the projected 220ft added for the helix (but close enough), we can come to the conclusion that the width and "height" of the helix is roughly 2/3 the size of a baseball field, which is EXTREMELY small. Then, to go further, if we assume that the train is traveling 25mph throughout the helix, which is a fair assessment based off the animations, we can say for 25mph = 36 feet per second, meaning that 232ft/36ft= roughly 6.5. this means that if this hypothetical 220ft helix was added, it would add a mere 6.5 seconds onto the ride time, and that's not even adding in the extra speed gained from a coaster train which is much heavier than an everyday car used in the calculations. now let's ask ourselves, would six flags really invest all this extra money and time to add 6 seconds onto a ride that would not only kill the pacing, but increase maintenance, increase construction costs, push the construction deadline even further, and not provide anything to the ride experience. and that's not even including the fact that honestly, the attraction is stronger without it, and there's no marketability in having a helix vs. not having one. the answer to that is no. so therefore, you're wrong You forgot to include the 30.ft reduction in height of the second turn. In fact, all of the structure (except the drop, break run, and station) has been lowered drastically. Using slope ( or half moon equation) we know these reductions in height should leave more than 150.ft, so you are wrong. Try again! i'm not sure what you're trying to say here. if the coaster was 100ft long, it goes to 400ft (under the +300ft notion that has been widely discussed), if the coaster is 2400ft, it goes to 2700ft. SFOG announced a length that i don't even know, as it has no bearing on the case i just made. no matter the height, length, or ride time of the previously announced RMC, if the ride receives an additional helix like you're claiming, it will be roughly 232ft long and will add about 6.5 seconds to the ride time. have fun trolling

You are awfully salty for someone that is 30+ years old. Maybe you should how to practice constructing real arguments instead of calling anyone that disagrees with you a troll. You are exhibiting snowflake behavior.
