  1. Thanks for keeping us informed on your expansion. The Tilt-a Whirl looks pretty poppy.
  2. ^ You of course don't have to be nice but a coaster forum sure seems like a good place for it. What is embarrassing to me is that there is very little compassion shown for a woman who's child was eatin in front of her. Was it negligent, of course, but some of your attitudes completely suck.
  3. Perhaps I don't understand what safety net means but I promise there is a lawyer licking his chops that thinks he dose. Robb, I only took the info you provided which said there was a safety net and it failed. The story didn't refer to it as a loose article screen that I am aware of. This will come up again and I am sure the parks lawyer will agree it was the mothers fault as I do. The fact that people do negligent things and our legal system supports them isn't changing any time soon. Robb, why not just ask me to clarify my comment, that was a bit much IMO.
  4. Is White Lightning a reference to lightning or moonshine? Trains look more like moonshne themed. In all seriousness I have heard them refer to Central Florida Lightning as being part of the influence on the name. That color blue is basically a perfect blue, I look forward to seeing it in the sun, in person. So far so good for the Fun Spot folks, it looks like they have done there homework on this. From the art and Facebook we know they are getting a brand new Tilt-a-Whirl as well as the Scrambler and Paratrooper they already have but are any of the other flats confirmed. It appears
  5. It's funny how Americans are used as a poster boy for everything that sucks, but we have all been in the parks when the tour groups are there, enough said.
  6. Parks need to protect themselves from the negligence of their patrons. Seriously bad parenting for sure but the safety net should be functional in case something like this happens. Very awful story that probably wont end well for the remaining dogs either. The parent's life too is basically over. Very sad.
  7. Cool trains. Anyone got any concrete pictures, it's not actually real until I see footers. It's hard to believe we're getting a fun looking woodie in Orlando.
  8. Thats not just any dirt, thats dirt from the actual coaster site. Best update of the year, you sir are a poet.
  9. Worst kept secret ever but great news that it's confirmed. I hope to learn as little as possible about this ride until I actually go ride it, something brand new I'm trying out.
  10. If you only look to the left, Nitro has a nice view. Asia and South America seem to have some insane coaster views. I love the view of just about any fair from above...Volusia County Fair in just 4 days!
  11. I love the extended hours and the fireworks as well as the flag raising. Those are all perfect additions to the park. Maybe I can finally get a night ride on Thunderhead. I miss Dollywood, a great day I had there.
  12. I went by today and there is some work being done, not what we're looking for but it's progress. The main thing lately has been filling the ditch that ran under the former Commander track, they accomplished this and poured some concrete for drainage. I talked to a guy who said they are still planning on March through May to open the new rides, seems difficult to me. Tractors on site are moving dirt making way for the go kart track that will be 4 stories tall. They had painted the chasis for the old karts red and blue, they look nice. The other tracks got snazzy new signs and they put a ki
  13. Star Flyer. One about 250 feet or so. Dollywood could do a cool timber themed drop tower too. I personally love a Star flyer for that spot, a brown one. A windseeker could get wider ridership but wouldn't look right in that spot, IMO.
  14. A couple cool things on the Fun Spot facebook page. They are getting a BRAND NEW Tilt-a-Whirl, I didn't think they still made new ones and it's a ride I love so I'm glad to see a new one. They have some photos of construction crews doing some clearing...so there's dirt, wIll someone get more pictures of the dirt please. Also you can see the ground breaking ceremony, actually quite boring, and there a couple GCI links to blogs about the coaster. It's a start.
  15. There is at least a large banner hanging on the track that is being expanded, Commander I think it's called, that shows the entire expansion. Basically the same one we have seen before with the flats moved around a little. The construction that is going on now is being done by Fun Spot staff with rented machinery. I watched for a while when they first started and sincerely hope that most of this project is done by people who build stuff for a living. I was out again yesterday for a ride or two and it was pretty unimpressive. Someone needs to clean the place up, it looked like crap, bur
