(Got these at New Element)

 

Who is "new element" and why are they stealing pics?

Two of those pics are mine (see page 139 of this thread) and one is chadster's (see page 141)

 

(I just looked them up) - I really don't care if my pics of the Giant get spread around so more folks get excited, but it would at least be nice if they would credit where they got them.

Is this the first coaster overhaul like this for this company? Sorry if this was already discussed, but I could not find the answer.

 

I also know that a few people mentioned this overhaul to Mean Streak. Robb pointed out that Mean Streak sucked in comparison to The Giant. I have been on the crap that is Mean Streak Streak many times but never have been to Six Flags Over Texas. I always thought from pictures that they were almost basically the same ride design, just sort of chiral in layout. What are the major differences out of curiosity? Like I said, my judgment was based on pictures though.

 

Speaking of Mean Streak, I got quite a laugh a few years ago when "Big Dick" put up a big banner on it saying "rated one of the top 10 wood coasters." I guess maybe the top ten for pain.

It's just another forum, and so sorry I didn't know you took it! They didn't credit them but I'll be sure to put your name up.

Same, I don't care if they post them, but credit should be given. Suppose as crunch time commeth we will have to mark our pics, something I try not to do on this site.

They realized. They gave credit. The guy who posted the pics had no idea you guys would even care.

 

Soo... Sorry.

 

Just soo you know, it is expected for internet sites that borrow photos, to give credit to where they got the photo. I don't know any legit publication that thinks it is okay to show another person's work without referencing where they got it.

*Credit to TPR because they're so ubsessed*

 

Well, at least he edited it at some point to credit us...

 

On Topic: Does anyone remember the aerial photo someone edited every so often to show progress with different colors? I'd like to get a better idea of the progress thus far, if he/she wouldn't mind.

There were a few things I was hoping for in the 50th anniversary as well; a return of the Spee- lunkers, bringing back the original theming (waterfall) and repairing much of the existing theming on the Mine Train, some enhancements to the Log Flumes, SOMETHING in Ft. St, Louis (France) (Can we say perhaps an awesome re imagining of Skull Island?)

BUT- this TG overhaul is a pretty big helping of AWESOME- I can't WAIT!

 

Great idea ! I do miss the cave, and all the people in that house on the mine train before that drop ... lol. I remember the spindle top, i was terrified to ride it as a child ... but it looked fun. I miss the Spinnaker as well ... SFOT is still cool, but it has lost alot of its charm over the years.
