  1. For someone who has talked a lot of shit on Robb and TPR on his Twitter page, coming here with your name and location, and some of your recent posts...yeah I give you a week.
  2. Haven’t attended many shows this year (got to 10 concerts and a live podcast in 2018). But most recent was Iron Maiden at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater on 8/22/2019. Great show, it was a legacy tour so all the favs were played. Also the production was incredible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’ll admit Banshee is my least favorite B&M invert, and probably my least favorite B&M period. It just didn’t “do anything for me.” I was so excited to have a “nice big forceful B&M invert with a unique layout.” And when I rode it I came off thinking.... “That was it? WTF is all the hype for?” - It is by NO means a “bad” coaster. To me it’s just... meh. Next please. I’ve literally had more forceful rides on all the Batman clones I’ve been on... and Black Mamba blows Banshee out of the water. And while we are on the Banshee topic.... This. 100% this. Glad I’m. It the only one that fees this way. There’s just never an “OMG!! That was amazing!!” Experience on the coaster. It’s Just kinda.... there. I don’t hate it, and I do ride it every time I’m at the park... However every experience has always been the same. I get off Banshee wanting... more,. Don’t hate me! Just my personal opinion.
  4. I would not recommend you ride any B&Ms built before 2006, if Banshee makes your feet numb, ones with forces might kill you. Nice to know we have a comedian in our midst! Again, if you want to deny science and reality, that's on you, no skin off my back! Thanks for the compliment, but I dropped out of the stand up scene after bookings dried up. At least those thousands of dollars of training at second city can come in handy here. For realz though, I can't find how many G's the ride actually pulls anywhere (likely because it's not marketable when it's like 2 tops). If it's that forceful to you that's great, I just like to *feel* something when I'm on a coaster, and this ride just doesn't do it for me. It's not bad, it's just unmemorable. I agree that pre-2006 B&M's are generally more forceful and definitely more snappy, but how do you not feel the force on Banshee? Have you only ridden the thing once or twice? It can be hit or miss, granted, but even on 'slower' days you can still feel it coming out of the batwing through the loop and all the way up the helix until you get to the heartline roll. Got a back row ride and a front row ride. Was expecting some forces until we hit the brake run. I'll give it another try when I get out there next year for Orion. I'll admit that there was some hangtime in most of the inversions, but there was really nothing for me force-wise. *shrug*
  5. Coasterdynamix just announced an NTG nanocoaster...enjoy ya'll, they only had the Titan one available when I was there (so it's currently on my desk)

  7. They aren’t real fans. They are just saying they are fans and that it’s their “number one coaster” because they want attention. Vortex actually is my #1, and it's been that way since I lost the Scream Machine back in 2010 which was previously my #1. I love arrow loopers. To me they aren't rough at all and I absolutely love the old school inversions,especially the loops. Plus with Vortex it combined an awesome first drop, with all my favorite ride elements. I really wish there was a company that still built coaster like arrow. I know there never will be, but I can always hope. For, now I will hold on to hope that both Vipers and the Loch Ness Monster can hold on for awhile longer. Anaconda isn't that great and I know it it's gonna be the next one to go. Coaster hipster alert!

  9. ^That's a nightmare. Hopefully red tape won't prevent Montana Russa from operating again.
  10. ^Oh ok, well probably with the metal detectors, it would be still be quite slow moving. But perhaps not an hour. I'm seriously considering going.
  11. I went in 2018. Everything was a station wait or walk-on during ERT except Steel Vengeance - which had over an hour wait, running 2 trains. Horray for metal detectors. Jesus, that's insane. Might be worth it for all those sweet Millennium Force rides though...Thanks for sharing.
  12. ^Somebody else posted a tribute video playing "I'll be missing you" in the background. Some of these coaster boys really need to chill. Although I can't wait to hear what music they use when Beast closes.
  13. ^Too be fair (to be fair) I did get an AMAZING ride on Eagle when I was there earlier this month. Never had a ride that good on it. Boss is boring at best, painful at worst (had both over my two visits this year). American Thunder is hot, and of course Freeze is dope. But if I'm going 5 hours for a coaster it'll be my baby Millennium Force.
  14. ^I mean I'm not a hugh boomerang fan or anything, but it was mad disappointing to have it be down on both visits. Not like coming from Chicago is super easy. Maybe I'll go again when they get something new that actually opens.
  15. ^Dude, thanks a bunch for that info. Would've (stupidly and true to brand) never thought to check school calendar.
  16. Pantheon didn't excite me much until I started seeing the construction pics. That ride looks slick! Hoping to make it out there in 2020.
  17. So any word if the park is planning on reopening? I'd assume Quimera is done, but Montana Russa looks siiiiick. Being less than 10 miles from SFM I was hoping to do the trip at some point in 2020.
