I'm sure they know EXACTLY why. They aren't stupid.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I don't mean to come across rude, but they honestly don't. Our sites would actually like to get along. They have no idea why they are blocked, and other sites are apparently experiencing this. Maybe something happened behind the scenes. But in all honesty, as part of SFNE Online some time ago, we have no idea what's we did wrong. If our sites worked together, I bet this thread would be the most reliable. :)

Posting about this publicly is really not appropriate. I responded to the comment, fair enough. But if anyone from the site wants to contact me privately, they are more than welcome to.

Assuming they make the restraints right and nobody flings, you have nothing to worry about.

My all time favorite video, and it describes the best ride I've ever ridden. I've been on over 50+ coasters, Cyclone remains my #1. I love and miss you Cyclone. :cry:

With all due respect I guess I just don't get it with Cyclone. I never rode it when it was new and with the old first drop but in it's current state I thought it was dull on it's best days and rough on it's worst days. We only rode it because it never had a line... it just didn't do anything except for crawl around the course and occasionally jar the hell out of everyone on the train.

They played up the fact that the coaster was a classic but it really wasn't all that old... especially when compared to the much better wood coaster just a few hundred feet away from it. I won't miss this ride at all. If I was going to complain about things SFNE removed this would be at the bottom of the list. Ride removals like Colossus, the Log Flume, Time Warp, Shipwreck Falls, Rodeo and Spider and possibly the New England Skyway annoy me much more. Especially because most of them weren't replaced with anything new and the only one that was (the Log Flume) was replaced with one of the ugliest and dumbest water rides ever constructed. Colossus was kind of replaced but with an ugly upcharge carnival ride and a relocated swing ride from somewhere else in the park. Cyclone is going to be replaced with something awesome and if you want to ride a great classic wood coaster there's one over by Scream.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

i agree with this -- I rode it in its original form, and it was mostly uncomfortable.

You're going to need a bigger Donkey
