Page 2228 - Wonder Woman Flight of Courage REAL POV!

Recommended Posts

I had to catch myself yesterday when my neighbor was telling me about FT. I almost said 'Oh, YOLOcoaster!' But caught myself as she wouldn't have understood. I had to think for a second as well before I told her about Full Throttle

 

I had to do the exact same thing when my friends were talking about it!

Maybe they'll have a show in the new YOLO Land where we do a harlem shake and the gangham style dance?

 

Throw in the Curly Shuffle and the Batusi, and you have a winner!

 

You're dating yourself Chuck! The fact I know what you are talking about doesn't say much for me either. Thanks for making me think of Adam West.

 

Now you can think of Cesar Romero!

 

As for YOLO, I like what I'm seeing so far--the world needs more Premier launched coasters.

I feel the need to apologize for my joke, at Joey's expense, that no one seemed to get. Sorry Joey.

 

If it was the other Joey, If it was me,

 

Cray Cray is definitely a good one for the next coaster.

I got it, but I am here way more often than I should be!

 

Anyway, with a roller coaster launching out of the tunnel right underneath the Laughing Dragon Pizza Company, I would love to see this venue open back up again. Should be a really cool unique view of the ride, and there should be more traffic up there now with 'new' Superman and now the YOLO track going over Superman Plaza.

I find it interesting how premier is switching between their new style track and ties (similar to intamin double spine) and their old track and ties (seen on FOF and Mr. Freeze. I saw the same thing on a couple spots on S:UF. Personally I dont mind because I always found the track on their classic rides to be really nice looking. Does anyone understand what I'm talking about? Any theories?
Intermountain Lift, Inc., Premier Ride's Upright and Track Fabricator, has been building dual pipe spines since Speed: The Ride was fabricated in 1999/2000, so it's not really "new".

Honestly, I think we should all agree only to ever acknowledge this ride as ever being YOLOcoaster. And if any one (GP) calls it by its non-kosher name, you just pretend like they did. They'll catch on eventually!

Is it just me or is this ride beginning to look more and more like something you would create in RCT? That piece over the Superman pad is such an eyesore. I still love this park, but this coaster is just pathetic and I am so sad to see that mountain terrain go to such a waste. Sad.

^I respectfully disagree. I think the pieces over the Superman plaza is pretty cool and looks OK.

 

The only gripe I have with this ride is the short layout. Other than that it looks like a pretty good coaster, despite what park it is in.

Wow, I think this is the first post of somebody not liking the way it looks. I actually was thinking that element was making everybody like the ride more. Go figure.

I agree, it's wild to think that a nice looking coaster interacting with a "midway/ride plaza" would be deemed ugly...on an enthusiast site! I think it looks great...and I think the color helps. I could imagine thinking less of it if it was neon green or purple, but the color looks nice and clean and the immediacy of the dive over the edge/INTO the hillside tunnel = COOL.

 

Great point about the Laughing Dragon - this does seem like the perfect excuse to breath some life back into the building! I know it'd never happen (for many reasons), but how cool would it be to glass floor that looked down on to the track? In any case, as-is it seems like a great time to get that location back up and running...for sure. Heck, the first theme park location of http://www.HowDoYouRoll.com would be a good move for that portion of the park!
