  1. Wow, no splashdown ending. I guess it doesn't go with the theme, maybe if the train ran into a cement wall in the end. Would that fit better . The name Intimidator is great but I hate that they are naming rides after people, especially dead people, I also hate NASCAR, a lot. Otherwise the ride looks great.
  2. I wonder if this ride only makes left turns, does it crash into a wall at the end, too soon? Anyways it looks sort of like a massive mega-lite and despite the awful choice of theme it looks like a great ride.
  3. This is sort of off topic, but I don't think it deserves its own thread. Whenever I rode Thunderhawk at GL I always wondered how they would evacuate the train from the lift of a Vekoma SLC.
  4. The fact of the matter is that we are due for a pandemic, history shows that major pandemics occur three to four times in a century, there were 3 pandemics in the last century, 1918, 1957, and 1967. It will be interesting to see, if the virus does become a pandemic, how this effects the industry. I believe that if it gets really bad, the government will force all parks to suspend operation.
  5. Thanks for bringing this up, I have been wondering what would happen to the industry with the economic situation, and now we can add the threat of pandemic flu. This couldn't have come at a worse time, not just for parks, but for everyone. People have lost their jobs and are without health insurance, and with no health insurance how are people going to pay the hospital bills if they, or family, get sick.
  6. I have a question, is kind of off topic but I don't think it is worthy of its own thread. Belantis looks to me, from the pictures I have seen, like it was half-finished when it opened. Kind of a weird question, but I am really curious.
  7. What was really strange was the other lady on the show who was in love with the Berlin Wall, 1001 Nact is one thing, but a symbol of oppression is quite another.
  8. Americana actually looks better at KD than it did at GL. I still wish it was back at home though...
  9. http://coasterz.co.uk/videos.html Just in case you are interested, here is a full POV of Screechin' Eagle.
  10. May in Ohio is best time of year, mid 60s to low 70s, but by Lake Erie theres always a breeze. As far as crowds go any day in May or early June is perfect, only locals go then. Even if it is busy the lines are always quick as most rides have a very high compacity. May, in my opinion, is the best time to visit Ohio.
  11. I know many people disagree but I find Legend amazing, while Holiday World is just okay.
  12. I have always wondered why many parks will only run their ferris wheel's at limited capacity. I once asked a Americana employee and they said it was to even the weight out, but wouldn't the have evenly distributed weight if all the carriages were filled? It doesn't make much sense that a ride that is designed with 24 carriages should only have 8 opened.
  13. For all the complainers about 3 new/used rides think about this. At least you still have a homepark. It was really sad when today I saw Time Warp on several flatbeds while filling up my car at a gas station, I am just standing there and I see that weird clock face driving by and I am like, hey thats Time Warp, anyways those three rides are great additions.
  14. I know my most uncomfortable expirence was sitting in the brake run on Mantis for about 15 minutes while vomit was being cleaned from the train in the station my legs fell asleep and those bicycle seats are as hard as rock.
