25. Favorite steel coaster *under* 100 feet?

Apocalypse @ SFMM

Wait, when did that become a steel coaster? It was those sneaky bastards at RMC, wasn't it? We all thought it was down for extended maintenance, but no! They've been bringing in their steel track at night while we weren't looking! Damn those coaster gnomes!

Nah, they converted it while the park was open. It went unnoticed because nobody goes into that corner of the park.

 

But besides the new Twisted Terminator, my favorite steel coaster under 100 feet is Gold Rusher.

Solid questions.

 

1. What is the best park visit you had in 2017?

I really really loved Port Aventura. I'd have to say that one, although I had a couple memorable days where I was on a rush layover and banged out some obscure parks. Coming off a plane a little buzzed and running around a city is one of my favorite things.

 

2. Have you ever traveled to a park with a specific ride in mind only for it to be closed all day?

Definitely. Missed Hulk at Universal AND Kraken at Sea World on separate visits to Orlando (though at least I knew they would be closed). Drove out of my way to Clementon Park, Rye's Playland, and Camden Park for the their woodies and each had their respective largest woodie closed. Didn't pay to go into any of them, just turned around at the gate and left.

 

3. GCI or Gravity Group? Pick one.

Gravity Group has the edge, but I do enjoy GCIs, and even love some of their better ones. I prefer CCIs to both of these.

 

4. How many different parks did you visit in 2017?

11, and most of those were because I was in the area for work trips or they were on the way to visiting family.

 

5. How many times did you visit your home park in 2017?

None times. Wasn't worth it for me this year.

 

6. What was the first RMC you rode?

It was Twisted Colossus, but I had to go back and check. I rode TC, Medusa, and Goliath all within a few weeks of each other.

 

7. Best view from the top of a lift?

Medusa Steel immediately comes to mind, although MF and the coasters at Ocean Parks obviously are great as well.

 

8. What new-for-2018 roller coaster are you most anticipating? Pick one.

Cedar Point's RMC, but beyond the RMCs there actually isn't too much I'm super excited for. I am enjoying watching the Asian market expand though.

 

9. RMC or Intamin? You can only choose one.

Intamin for me, they're just a little more classic. And there are more of them.

 

10. What was your favorite new-to-you ride of 2017?

Almost everything I rode in 2017 was new to me, and there were a few good ones. Shambhala was so dreamy. Flying Aces too.

 

11. Money is no object. You can travel to any park in the world right now by snapping your fingers. Where are you going?

Gold Reef City or Parque Espana - take me far, far away please, somewhere fairly obscure.

 

12. Have you ever made out with someone in a queue line?

Actually yes haha.

 

13. What is the last coaster that changed your top 10?

I have Shambhala down at #10 steel, that was the only change from this year. Last year I saw changes from Fury, Outlaw Run, and Lightning Rod.

 

14. Disney or Universal?

Disney definitely.

 

15. When is the last time you witnessed someone puke at a park?

I've taken multiple friends to parks that have ended up puking haha. Last one was probably a few years ago.

 

16. How many new credits did you pick up in 2017? If you don't count, take your best guess...

Only 26. My quietest year since I started keeping track 12 years ago.

 

17. You're at Magic Mountain. You have a one hour ERT session on ONE coaster of your choice. You choose...

Probably Twisted Colossus, yeah.

 

18. Name a coaster or ride that you passionately dislike.

I really don't like most of what seems to often pass for major new installments these days - the 4d coasters, the Sky Rocket IIs, that sort of thing.

 

19. What is the most amount of money you've spent on a Fast Pass?

Never have I ever.

 

20. Skyscreamers or Windseekers?

Windseekers I guess

 

21. What is your most recent B&M credit?

In reverse order, added Shambhala, Dragon Khan, Banshee, Diamondback, Mako, and Manta this year.

 

22. Best adult beverage at a theme park? (under 21: whats your favorite beverage you can only get at a park?)

I actually don't drink at theme parks, it's too expensive for me. I definitely drink after theme parks though.

 

23. Most irritating coaster nickname/abbreviation?

Don't get particularly upset about any that I can think of.

 

24. Butterbeer or Dole Whip?

What's a Dole Whip? Lol

 

25. Favorite steel coaster *under* 100 feet?

Medusa Steel definitely, although I forgot that was under 100 feet until I checked. Then Atlantis Adventure

 

26. What's the best bathroom at your home park?

The closest one. I rank a lot of things and keep a lot of lists, but this is not one of them.

 

27. Nighttime ERT on Lightning Rod or all-you-can-eat Cinnamon Bread? You can only choose one.

I mean, Lightning Rod.

 

28. If it were in your power, what coaster would you relocate to Knoebels?

Blackpool's mouse!

 

29. What is the last thing you remember eating in a theme park?

Honestly, I can't. I don't eat at parks.

 

30. Your favorite coaster got equipped with on board audio x Spotify. What's your hype track?

None for me. I like my coasters all na-tu-ral.

 

31. Name the most disappointing ride you took in 2017.

Joker at SFDK (while hungover) and Furious Baco did not meet my hopes, dreams, and expectations.

 

32. Airtime hill or Zero G Roll?

Actually Zero G Roll. It's probably the only thing you could have said to not make me immediately choose air time hill.

 

33. What is your favorite coaster/ride built before 1970?

Oh gosh I have no idea. Matterhorn?

 

34. What's worse - splashed by malaria lake flume water or dripped on by chain lift grease?

I just hate being wet so bad. Water for me.

 

35. Name an Intamin coaster on your bucketlist!

Expedition GeForce is the only big one left on my list. After that it's Skycar lol, and some of the newer China installations, like that triple launch.

 

36. You just won a 3 day trip with hotel and airfare included. The catch is you have to choose between Disneyworld or Cedar Point. Which do you choose and why?

Disneyworld. We just had a kid, and I know I ain't payin' to take my family to Disney any time soon.

 

37. Floater or Ejector?

Ejector.

 

38. What was your worst park experience of 2017?

Unfortunately, Stricker's Grove. Wanted to like it, but it was super super crowded, making it a get-us-the-heck-out-of-here sort of day.

Jungle Storm in Bahrain, changed my life.

What about Symbolica?

 

EDIT:

Okay, that explains it all

I was on the assumtion that that was coasters only so I didn't thought of it back then. Either way I explain it later, I did not recieve the ride well and I'm of the believe the ride has gone through a downwards spiral to the point that I don't enjoy it and probably won't ride it anytime soon again.

13. What is the last coaster that changed your top 10?

my nummber 3 Taron Phantasialand.

I suddenly remembered this is incorrect. Taron comes from July 2016 but I did a Sweden trip in August 2016. Helix became my number 5 in the steel catagory and Wildfire 1 in the wood. Oh well.

14. Disney or Universal?

Universal overall better but Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite parks.

 

15. When is the last time you witnessed someone puke at a park?

Last year on Raging Bull.

 

16. How many new credits did you pick up in 2017? If you don't count, take your best guess...

I picked up about 30 credits.

 

17. You're at Magic Mountain. You have a one hour ERT session on ONE coaster of your choice. You choose...

Haven't been yet but from what I've seen Twisted Collosus looks like the one.

 

18. Name a coaster or ride that you passionately dislike.

I dislike the Demon at SGam. It makes my head hurt every time I ride but I try to get on it at least once a season.

 

19. What is the most amount of money you've spent on a Fast Pass?

$0 got a free one for Cedar Point and SGam once though.

 

20. Skyscreamers or Windseekers?

Skyscreamers!

 

21. What is your most recent B&M credit?

Wild Eagle @ Dollywood.

 

22. Best adult beverage at a theme park? (under 21: whats your favorite beverage you can only get at a park?)

Unfortunately under 21 but butterbeer comes to mind.

 

23. Most irritating coaster nickname/abbreviation?

iRat, it just sounds so bad.

 

24. Butterbeer or Dole Whip?

Butterbeer but I do enjoy a good Dole Whip as well.

 

25. Favorite steel coaster *under* 100 feet?

Storm Chaser, Lightning Run, and Thunderhead are all 100ft so I'll just break the rules and say those three.

 

26. What's the best bathroom at your home park?

The ones behind the season pass station near Whizzer. Usually clean and empty.

 

27. Nighttime ERT on Lightning Rod or all-you-can-eat Cinnamon Bread? You can only choose one.

Nighttime ERT. My nighttime ride in 35-degree weather was the highlight of the season for me this year.

 

28. If it were in your power, what coaster would you relocate to Knoebels?

Wooden Roller Coaster from Knightvalley because Knoebels can't get enough perfect woodies.

 

29. What is the last thing you remember eating in a theme park?

Cinnamon Bread @ Dollywood.

 

30. Your favorite coaster got equipped with on board audio x Spotify. What's your hype track?

Flight by Rich Brian. Always makes me feel happy.

 

31. Name the most disappointing ride you took in 2017.

The Voyage. Not that it was that bad but after such a long coaster trip and with so many good rides, this one just didn't live up to the high expectations I gave it. I will have to try it again at Holliwood Nights though.

 

32. Airtime hill or Zero G Roll?

Zero G Roll.

 

33. What is your favorite coaster/ride built before 1970?

Only riden a few but Blue Streak comes to mind.

 

34. What's worse - splashed by malaria lake flume water or dripped on by chain lift grease?

Grease, harder to get off.

 

35. Name an Intamin coaster on your bucketlist!

Expedition Geforce.

 

36. You just won a 3 day trip with hotel and airfare included. The catch is you have to choose between Disneyworld or Cedar Point. Which do you choose and why?

Cedar Point. I truly loved Disneyworld but I'm a thrillseeker and as much as the immersion of Animal Kingdom can give me, I need more thrills. Although after Star Wars land opens I may reconsider.

 

37. Floater or Ejector?

Ejector.

 

38. What was your worst park experience of 2017?

Not necessarily bad but Holiday World. I visited a lot of awesome parks this year but my experience with the Voyage was the only one that really disappointed me.

 

39. Name your favorite coaster under 41 feet tall.

Little Dipper @ SGam. Best Woodie ever!

 

40. End your post with an aerial shot of one of your top 5 coasters.

1. What is the best park visit you had in 2017?

 

Arguably Kings Island. I did a HW/KI double feature, and while Holiday World was outstanding, KI just narrowly takes the win.

 

2. Have you ever traveled to a park with a specific ride in mind only for it to be closed all day?

 

Yep. I was taking my first trip to the non-Disney Florida parks and Kumba was one of my most anticipated attractions. I got there only to find it down for annual refurbishment.

 

3. GCI or Gravity Group? Pick one.

 

GCII. I don't have much GG experience (Boardwalk Bullet, The Voyage, and Wooden Warrior are the only ones that come to mind), and while all were quite good, I give the edge to the fine folks from Pennsylvania. GCII has only gotten better with time.

 

4. How many different parks did you visit in 2017?

 

12, if I'm not mistaken. All Orlando parks, Wild Waves, KI, and HW.

 

5. How many times did you visit your home park in 2017?

 

Too many to count.

 

6. What was the first RMC you rode?

 

New Texas Giant

 

7. Best view from the top of a lift?

 

This is a very tough call. Mean Streak, Griffon (I love the view of Hampton Roads), Behemoth, and Fury 325 all come to mind, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

 

8. What new-for-2018 roller coaster are you most anticipating? Pick one.

 

Steel Vengeance

 

9. RMC or Intamin? You can only choose one.

 

Probably Intamin, but not by much.

 

10. What was your favorite new-to-you ride of 2017?

 

Mystic Timbers

 

11. Money is no object. You can travel to any park in the world right now by snapping your fingers. Where are you going?

 

Walibi World

 

12. Have you ever made out with someone in a queue line?

 

Nope. Our kissing was pretty gentle.

 

13. What is the last coaster that changed your top 10?

 

Probably Fury 325, but I can't really give a definitive top 10.

 

14. Disney or Universal?

 

Disney by a landslide.

 

15. When is the last time you witnessed someone puke at a park?

 

Probably back in 2006 when I last worked at a park.

 

16. How many new credits did you pick up in 2017? If you don't count, take your best guess...

 

11, I believe.

 

17. You're at Magic Mountain. You have a one hour ERT session on ONE coaster of your choice. You choose...

 

B-TR is my favorite, but I'd probably say X2 since that's a much more unique experience.

 

18. Name a coaster or ride that you passionately dislike.

 

Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril. Ugh.

 

19. What is the most amount of money you've spent on a Fast Pass?

 

I don't recall exactly. Maybe $60-something?

 

20. Skyscreamers or Windseekers?

 

Never done the former and don't have much desire, but I L-O-V-E WindSeekers.

 

21. What is your most recent B&M credit?

 

If you mean credit in general, whether previously ridden or not, Chinese Fireball. If you mean new-to-me B&M credit, then Banshee.

 

22. Best adult beverage at a theme park? (under 21: whats your favorite beverage you can only get at a park?)

 

I've had some good ciders at Epcot, but I don't remember their names.

 

23. Most irritating coaster nickname/abbreviation?

 

None really come to mind.

 

24. Butterbeer or Dole Whip?

 

Dole Whip

 

25. Favorite steel coaster *under* 100 feet?

 

RNRC

 

26. What's the best bathroom at your home park?

 

The Tangled one in Fantasyland.

 

27. Nighttime ERT on Lightning Rod or all-you-can-eat Cinnamon Bread? You can only choose one.

 

Are you serious? I don't have to worry about cinnamon bread going down for maintenance for weeks at a time. ERT all the way.

 

28. If it were in your power, what coaster would you relocate to Knoebels?

 

A Batman - The Ride clone. It's the best coaster in the size range that a Knoebels steel coaster should be.

 

29. What is the last thing you remember eating in a theme park?

 

Popcorn

 

30. Your favorite coaster got equipped with on board audio x Spotify. What's your hype track?

 

Zoo Station by U2. It's my favorite song due heavily to the way that I feel it builds in intensity.

 

31. Name the most disappointing ride you took in 2017.

 

Timberhawk at Wild Waves. Major letdown.

 

32. Airtime hill or Zero G Roll?

 

It depends on context, but probably airtime hill.

Yankee Cannonball. Wow, that is a heck of a ride.

 

34. What's worse - splashed by malaria lake flume water or dripped on by chain lift grease?

 

Grease.

 

35. Name an Intamin coaster on your bucketlist!

 

Goliath at Walibi Holland.

 

36. You just won a 3 day trip with hotel and airfare included. The catch is you have to choose between Disneyworld or Cedar Point. Which do you choose and why?

 

Cedar Point, but that's only because Walt Disney World is right up the road.

 

37. Floater or Ejector?

 

Ejector

 

38. What was your worst park experience of 2017?

 

Wild Waves. It's rare that I really haven't found a park with pretty much anything going for it, but that park was a major dud.

 

39. Name your favorite coaster under 41 feet tall.

 

I'm sure I'll think of a halfway decent answer later, but for now, I'm just going to go with Barnstormer.

 

40. End your post with an aerial shot of one of your top 5 coasters.
