It was sent out to people who get press releases! (we got it, too.)

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

So essentially what you are saying is you are the first to hear about any new roller coasters.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

What this guy said. I don't understand the sudden outpouring of love for this coaster. Yeah, in its original form I'm sure it was great. After it got butchered with the new first drop the thing moved slower than molasses in winter. I had more faith in Anaconda at Walygator making it through the course -

What's not to understand? Certain people loved it in its original form. If you never rode it in its original form, then of course you wouldn't feel the same way. Obviously you're not going to "get it". The love is for how it rode when it opened, not when it closed. So why bother commenting when you have nothing relevant to say?

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

^ It's funny you posted a video of Anaconda, which like Cyclone was a Bill Cobb design. I never rode the Cyclone in its original form, but there's a few videos on YouTube that portray it in its opening year. Even in those videos it resembled pretty much every other Cobb coaster, where it barely made it over it's hills, which were very rounded and seemed to be engineered to eliminate negative g-forces. IMHO PTC was light years ahead of Cobb in that time period, as their coasters were designed to have floater airtime and consistent speed. Wasn't it Cobb who said he liked to incorporate "heart-stopping pauses" in his rides?

If that's the case then that ride has been looooooooooong dead and gone and has no relevance for the current remodel. Also what I said was relevant, just not apparently relevant to fanboys. The ride was crap when I rode it (2009) and was the same crap when it closed. It'll be re-worked into something incredible. End of story.
