p. 348 - Iron Gwazi POV!

Recommended Posts

^Are you referring to the PittFall rumor? I'm totally find with a used 250' Intamin Tower!

 

Actually, no! From what I've heard, ideas are for a more extreme form of Acrophobia. But I don't know who is building the ride, nor the exact specs. Can't wait for them to "drop" the news in soon.

Holy crap you nerds are a tough crowd.  It looks like a coaster that will make me hoot and holler the entire time I'm on it while simultaneously trying to throw my fat ass as far from the train as pos

It means that you can look forward to a fun-filled day riding Kumba, Montu, Cheetah Hunt and Sheikra and while you're in line for one of those you might be able to watch an Iron Gwazi POV on your phon

I actually agree with many of you talking about how the RMC's are all very similar.  And that's fine. There's nothing wrong with building a ton of very similar kick ass rides when most people who ride

I am actually glad sandstorm is leaving. It is a very old attraction and although it was fun, I never felt that it was safe. I worked there for 3 years and I always felt so uneasy with the ride. Hope this tower is also not a big disappointment as the one in BGW. I hope that BGT can focus on more flats going forward.

A more extreme form of Acrophobia? Why didn't I wait a year or two before I visited BGT? Oh yeah, a woodie could be going bye-bye, and I needed the GCI credit.

PittFall (or any second-gen Intamin Drop Tower for that matter) would go a long way towards filling the void that an all but certain Gwazi removal would create for me (and perhaps the 4.5 others worldwide that like the coaster).

Wasn't the planning permission for the new tower supposed to be over 300 feet?

Wouldn't be upset about a used Intamin tower, but really hoping we get something newer and unique.

Go drop ride.

 

After riding The Giant Drop, Dreamworld last week (377ft)I am all for bigger drop towers. Being a veteran theme park junkie I have to say I didn't think there was many things out there that would still have me afraid to go on but this certainly did.

May be heading to the park sometime next week, anyone have advice for what to do besides the major rides?

 

This is what I do when I go. It works for me, and I ride everything that I want several times.

 

Purchase your tickets online (unless you have a pass) Look to see if they have the Play & Dine Deal. It is the best value at BGT. You will receive two vouchers, one for admission and one for All Day Dining. Redeem you ADD voucher at Zagora Bar, then definitely ride Cheetah Hunt first thing. Try for front row for the best airtime in Florida. Then ride Montu in the front.

 

After Montu, make you way to the back of the park by cutting through Edge of Africa. Perhaps hit the 2 coasters in Timbuktu on your way to Kumba. From Kumba head straight to SheiKra. (Last time I was there, the queue was full by noon, on a weekday.)

 

You must make time to see the shows, and a last row ride on Montu later in the day. Montu rides amazing later in the day.

 

Give Kumba some lovin for me while you are there, please.

Am I the only one who prefers the Intamin 2nd generation drop towers (the ones with several 4 seat cars) over the newer gigantic Gyro drop style towers with the 40 person seat rings (acrophobia is the exception)?

Nope, those have the best and most intense drop!

I think I share that same sentiment... While I really enjoy both, I found Giant Drop at SF Great America far scarier than Drop Zone at Kings Dominion... with the possible exception of Acrophobia SFoG, which frightened me on MANY levels... I am truly sad that Sandstorm is being removed from the park (one of the FEW "spin" rides I love) I am looking forward to BGTs annoncement on 6/11 (in anticipation of a tower)...

Those definitely have the most intense "freefall feeling. Too bad they are not higher capacity.
