Theme Park Review's 2nd Annual Video Contest UPDATE!


Recommended Posts

Yeah the ride I filmed on was actually pretty poor as a ride, so we went on pretty much straight after, and had another bad ride. It just didn't spin at all

 

 

Yes, I know what you mean. I have got a good formula to make Dragons Fury

spin like mad on the first drop. If there is four of you then you put the

light weights in the front two seats and the heavy people in the back with

the most heaviest in the seat on the left side nearest to the loading station

when getting on. As I have worked out that the release arm is just at the

top of the lift hill just before the right turn and the drop. this seems to work every time. Unlike spinball whizzer, as the release

arm is just as you leave the station, and if you are lucky and might spin

going up the lift hill. Maurer Sohne spin coasters are just too much fun,

cannot wait to try Winjas in Phantasialand & Tarantula in Parque de

Atracciones Madrid.

^ Come on you see a sign like that and you just can’t resist & do some thing very silly.

Did you see the other sign in one of the other clips with “For your safety hold hands in the car” . I was trying to work out if that was your own hands or each others !!!!

Looking forward to seeing more signs like that in the USA in June.

^^ the "meet and greet" was awesome!

 

And the handpuppet was probably the funniest thing I've seen on a coaster. Where did you get the puppet? Did you bring it with you, or did they sell them in the park?

 

 

Robb or Elissa - do you send out a confirmation email for the videos you receive?

Looks like Mr Skunky (yes the hand puppet ) is becoming a little famous.

 

He goes to the odd theme park from time to time.

 

He originally came from Alton Towers (The shop by the River Rapid's & Run Away Mine Train if you know Alton Towers). He's filmed enjoying some great airtime on Tonnerre De Zeus at Parc Asterix.

The artist is "Altitude" and the song title is... "Altitude", original eh? It's the SHOKK remix you want aswell, it's a lot harder than the original.

 

For me, I think that would make rush hour less easy to tolerate, as it makes me want to go fast!

All the new entries are awesome - they all have something unique in them that stand out for me.

 

Hard to choose a favorite from them - but if had too - I'd have to go for Andrew's Winconsin Dells clip.

 

I can't see why Texas sucks , that Superman B&M floorless look fantastic :shock:
