Great Coasters Debuts New Website!


Recommended Posts

We debuted our new website yesterday! I suggest checking it out:

 

www.greatcoasters.com

 

If you submitted one or more photos to the site, there is a good chance at least one of them is being featured (if not, it was typically due to repeat shots, low resolution, etc.). We will continue to accept photos for possible inclusion, so it may be more helpful now to see how they're being used. Overall, I think it's a great way to showcase our fans' photos of our rides!

 

In any case, browse around. There are some cool new features on the site, and a few others being played with that could make an appearance in the future.

 

The best part of the new site is that is has updated information on it and will continue to!

 

Feedback is more than welcome. With the new site, it's never too late to make changes for the better, so I'd love some constructive criticism.

 

Enjoy!

Saw the site right when it went up, but didn't want to post anything as you hadn't yet.

 

Anyway, the site is awesome, lots of great information on there. Very well set up and easy to navigate, and the gallery is very nice, though it seems like all of the pictures are 'action' shots. I think including a section with CAD/3d renderings could be a good idea as well as it shows off more of the technical aspect of the rides, which I'd think potential customers would be interested in.

 

Very nice over all though, a huge improvement over the old site. Love those pictures of the new section of Boulder Dash too, which I think is the best part of the ride now.

 

Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing the CMG Models site in the future.

The site looks really good. I've already found a typo though. This quote is from the description for the first picture for Roar at SFDK: "Roar's structure sits beautifully in the Southern California park" For those who don't know, SFDK is near San Fransisco, which isn't in Southern California.

You're right, thanks. I've updated the caption.

 

I guess it's true that the more you stare at things, the easier it is to make silly mistakes without catching them.

The site looks great and is easy to navigate.

 

One thing I noticed on the Terminator page, it says to "Click here" for project stats, but nothing happened. Broken link?

 

Otherwise, it's great to see GCII coasters popping up all over the place. Clearly, they are quality rides and very popular with coaster fans all over. The only one I've personally ridden is ROAR up at SFDK, and that was in 1999 just after it opened.

 

I got to wondering one thing: The standard Millennium Flyer train is 12 cars long. Is it possible to get one, say, nine cars long? The reason I thought about this is that the San Diego Giant Dipper is just ripe for this type of train, and its original Prior and Church trains had nine cars. To me, the current Morgan trains are not right for that ride (or the Santa Cruz Giant Dipper, either). An articulated train would be best, but I think 12 cars is too long, sort of like this question.

 

Next spring, I look forward to a great GCII coaster at SFMM, a mere 40 miles from home!

I too like the look of the new site. Despite the fact that non of my pictures made it on the site I'm still happy they let me try. ^^And I like your point about the train lengths and types. If the Giant Dipper had Millennium Flyer trains but shorter than normal than that would be one heck of a comfy ride.

No, you actually have to click on the text that says "Click here"; links should turn red when you mouse-over. Maybe it makes sense to expand it to the whole text...

You can still contribute more! Like I mentioned in the first post, there were a few cases where we weren't able to use any submitted by a given person for various reasons. So, it's nothing personal!

I might be wrong here, but I was looking through the renovations list and Yankee Cannonball is missing. I had thought you guys worked on it in 2003, and I even think I remember something about it on the old site. Again, could be wrong, but just thought I'd bring it up.
