"Timmy" .... :lmao: Bahaha.

^I think it's funny they were claiming to know what the restrain was based off a zoomed in image from Clint's video of the test run.

CLEARLY those red pixles make out a B&M restraint, DUH!

^Of all the ridiculous, ludicrous, horribly childish things that uber fanboys say and do, giving ANY roller coaster a nickname that involves putting a "y" or "ie" at the end of its shortened name is the one that drives me nuts the most.

For example:

"Millie" for MF. "Maggie" for Magnum. "Termy" for Terminator: Salvation. "Timmy" for either of the Intimidators. And so on. Once again, if only the e-punch were reality.


On a related note, my second year at Cedar Point when we got Skyscraper, I referred to it the entire summer as "Raper" to poke fun at the fanboys. When we operated it, we even referred to it as "raping" people. Is that bad? :lol:

^Don't diss Termy.

(Or the ride's ability to go 102 and pull 6 g's. Those are TOTALLY realistic numbers)

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

All the insiders on KDfansite are smart enough to keep their mouths shut probably cause they work at the park. We won't know any thing officially until media day.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Actually you can see them pretty well on some of the zoomed in images on KDfansite / behind the thrills from Clint's video. Just as you can in the pic posted above^

From that picture it definitely looks like it will have the same restraints as Fahrenheit and Maverick.

I'm very excited to see what the first reviews of this coaster will be. I'll have my chance to ride this at some point during the summer.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Wait a second...did the park not announce (to some group) a couple weeks ago that the ride would have shoulder straps, such as those found on Insane and Tornado?

If so, this is very confusing... :?r

Yes we were told that by John Paglel on in the loop. Maybe they are just using them for testing because of the dummies, and they will replace them after testing.
