In response to a post in the "Weirdest Things the GP have Said" thread about correcting someone on the number of inversions a coaster has:

 

^ I don't think that belongs here. Even coaster fans like me mess up how many inversions some coasters have.

This was from a post back in February, but it is one of the funnier ones I read this week!

There's land being cleared in my neighborhood. It's a decent size, able to fit a T-Rex coaster. Next year is the 10th anniversary of my house being completed. My neighborhood hasn't received any coaster because other amusement parks keep stealing the new coaster. We were supposed to get an Intamin mega-lite back in 2007, but Cedar Point got Maverick instead.. All of these clues point to an RMC T-Rex.

 

EDIT: I see wood going up where the land was cleared. I guess we're getting an RMC woodie.

 

EDIT 2: It was just another house

This one made me laugh way more than it actually should have:

 

Because I know there are those of us who care.... Anyone know exactly how many times LR broke down today, and exactly how many trains it was running at any given moment??

 

When it was open - 2 trains. When it was broken down - 0 trains.

Theres also only 3 more clues! Because when I visit the hersheypark.com / 2017 website and scroll up, theres a 12345 and the 1 and 2 are purple while the 3,4,5 are still blue.

 

3, 4, and 5 are blue.

Those numbers are at the end of the sequence.

The sequence is short.

Drop rides are short.

When a ride is over, you'll be feeling...

blue

I'm pretty sure most people don't feel blue when they get off of rides. Unless it's their last ride of the night of course!

Maybe people on this website will feel blue because they're expecting something better.

 

Or is that only Kings Dominion

Ew boy...here's another CP trip report - if ya don't like it, head on over to the Dollywood thread and drizzle/dab your tears about Lightning Rod .

 

Seriously, this is a PG13 trip report that this 44 year old would have classified as Rated R back in 1984...

 

WARNING!!!!

 

There is talk of alcohol & alcoholism, intoxication, food porn, politically-correct swear words, gay & lesbian stuff, possible sexual innuendos, dimwitted observations about life in general...and I don't know what else because I'm already drunk tonight so we're just gonna play it by ear.

 

 

Everything about this post is just golden!!!

I usually just throw a fit and call the row assigner racist bigot. After a little crying, loud cursing, some vocal fry, and a lengthy explanation about how their policy makes no sense, I usually just pick whatever row I want. Security tries to throw me out, but I just threaten to sue at that point and record everything on my phone.

From the Kings Island Thread:

 

I will not post the picture but according to @27yankfan on instagram, a semi with LOTS OF WOOD was spotted in the parks parking lot. And from the looks of it, it looks like the wood is for track

 

Also more of the giant I-Beams have been placed vertically along the train tracks.

The wood shown in that photo is not of a high enough grade to be used for a wooden coaster.

 

Neither was the wood for Son Of Beast. But you didn't see that stopping them from building that hunk of trash.

Wait, I'm confused. Are you suggesting humanity wasn't stupid and wasn't always on their phones BEFORE Pokemon GO????

 

EDIT: Have to add this one. It's from the "Most Over-Rated Coaster?" Thread. It's back from March (I just hit the first read post button, and this came up).

 

I'm perplexed by some of these answers.

 

I've been doing some thinking about this and I guess the way to decide the "most overrated" coaster is to take the coaster where the difference between your opinion of the ride and the general consensus about the ride is the greatest. A lot of people are saying coasters like Millennium Force where the consensus is that it's amazing but they found it good, but not great. So if we were ranking it on a scale of 1 to 10 it would maybe be the difference between a 10 and a 6.

 

First of all, you're wrong. Millennium Force is a 10. But second of all, I would think a more appropriate pick would be a coaster that most people think is a 10 that you don't just find underwhelming, but actually flat out hate. Not like "eh it's okay but I don't understand the hype" (Hi Banshee!), more like "F**k this thing you couldn't pay me to ride it, what the hell is wrong with all of these people that enjoy this piece of Sh*t???".

 

Now some people may not have a coaster like this but I do, so this is an easy one for me. I love you Arrow, I love you Alan Schilke but X2 should be melted down and buried into a hole so deep that it stretches all the way to hell where that thing belongs. Everyone seems convinced that this is an amazing ride, 2+ hour waits are totally normal and it gets really positive reviews but I swear to god you couldn't pay me enough to ride this f**king thing ever again. I'd rather ride a Togo looper through all 7 layers of hell than ride X2 ever again. If Green Lantern didn't exist in the same park, then as far as I'm concerned X2 would be the worst coaster operating ANYWHERE in America (makes it sound like I don't get out much but I do... this park just happens to have the 2 worst coasters in America. Yay them!) Green Lantern isn't the most overrated coaster though because everyone openly admits that that ride sucks.

 

X2 is a terrible, terrible ride. Not just because it's a horrendous piece of sh*t (which it is) but because they changed the trains and re-named it just to convince me after the beating I took on this miserable waste of steel back in it's opening year (which we almost didn't get to ride but it had just re-opened after weeks of downtime the day we got there "lucky" us) that it was "new and improved" and we should give it another chance. No... it still sucks. To say this ride sucks is an insult to every other ride that sucks. This ride would have to dramatically improve just to suck. Not only did the new trains not make it suck less but it might have actually made it worse. The only saving grace is that on the lift hill when you get to stare at the Southern California sun the entire way up you get to listen to clips from Full Metal Jacket. This is fitting because this ride really gives you an idea of how Private Pyle felt when he was going through basic training with Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. To be fair though I think I'd rather endure that than X2. Gunnery Sergeant Hartman seems like less of a dick than the people that thought X2 was a good idea.

 

(Love you Alan Schilke but why?)

(In reference to people not paying attention to their surroundings while playing Pokemon Go)

Let them be the ones to run into an oncoming car rather than going out of your way to teach them a lesson. It's not your place.

You already know which thread this is from...

has there been any discussion of a new coaster coming in 2017? Is there any land clearing going on?

 

There's been a lot of incessant bitching about how the park is "due" for a new coaster or some crap but no actual signs of them getting one or meaningful discussion.

Seems to me it might mean 4 more than the original 5 flats. They are really stressing FOUR MORE. But that's just my thinking.

 

I like your thinking. If this were the Kings Dominion thread, the four would mean 4 inversions on their new RMC.
